  • charming property
Luciano (from Florence) and Ellen, (from Houston, Texas), both in the tourism field for many years, are happy to announce the opening of their home to guests. We live in an 18th century farm house located on a hilltop just 1500 meters from the sea, in Maremma-Tuscany. With great attention to detail, the environment and furnishings, we have transformed it into a comfortable Bed and Breakfast.

Boccadalma means the ‘mouth of the Alma river or stream’. Alma actually means ‘soul’ in Latin. We thought it was an appropriate name since it refers to our geographical location, as well as our state of mind. We have poured our souls into this project, and we hope to make you, our guests, comfortable and happy during your stay with us.

The house has two floors, with Luciano and Ellen’s quarters upstairs, and the Bed and Breakfast downstairs. The guests’ floor is comprised of four bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, and access to a garden area with outdoor table and chairs, a lounge chair and a beach-bed. Each room has its own satellite TV, an internet hook-up and a small safe for personal valuables. All of the rooms open to the common area (ex-stalls with a vaulted ceiling, minus the cow manure), with four individual tables where Continental breakfast is served. The renovations have just been completed and the Tuscan style and furnishings have been kept as authentic as possible.

Each of the rooms has been named after an island in the Tuscan Archipelago. They are called Giglio, Montecristo, Elba and Capraia. This last one has been equipped with ramps and a special bathroom for guests with disabilities.

The house has been restored using the latest techniques and materials. There are solar panels, a thermal fireplace for hot water and heating, insulated ceilings and thick walls, which make it comfortable in every season. Here, we separate and recycle our waste. Roof drainage allows us to re-use every drop of rain for the lawn and vegetable garden.

Our visit to Boccadalma B&B was delayed due to poor GPS in our car, but after stopping at a nearby snack shop, we were able to contact our hostess, Ellen and she quickly told us precise instructions on how to find her. She is off the beaten track, but once found, we were so happy with the accommodations. She asked what our interests were and after we told her we wanted to swim in the Mediterranean Sea, she quickly told us to head to the Camping Resort, about a mile away. They have an arrangement that allows for the use of the beach and free parking. We whiled away a few hours at the beautiful, quiet, family-friendly beach and headed back. Ellen recommended a local restaurant and we were happy she did. The food and service were excellent and the drive back was under a mile. Breakfast was waiting for us when we awoke and afterwards we headed off happily to our next stop. We highly recommend this B&B!

The answer from the host:
Grazie Sonia per la tua recensione, specialmente da parte di Ellen, da parte mia sono il sottobosco, mi occupo dell'amministrazione e della manutenzione, per questa ragione rimango nascosto agli ospiti, ma faccio in modo che ci siano meno problemi per il soggiorno. Un grazie anche da me e a un presto rivederci. Cordiali Saluti Luciano & Ellen.

L'accoglienza, la cordialità e la disponibilità di Ellen sono state fantastiche e ci hanno fatto sentire sin da subito a nostro agio. La struttura è molto curata ed è calata in un meraviglioso contesto naturalistico di tranquillità estrema, con delle bellissime spiagge a un paio di km. Se cercate un posto molto piacevole per rilassarvi e per rigenerarvi questo fa proprio al caso vostro.

Location favolosa, da film. Helen è stata molto ospitale. Ci siamo sentiti a casa. Stanza bella e arredata con molto gusto. Unico neo i 2 letti per le ragazze un po scomodi. Nel complesso abbiamo trascorso uno splendido fine settimana.
stayed from 07/26/2019 to 07/28/2019
The answer from the host:
Grazie per la vostra recensione. Da parte nostra cerchiamo sempre di dare il meglio, ovviamente non sempre ci riusciamo ma la buona volontà esiste. Per quanto riguarda i letti, sono letti aggiuntivi quindi non i più comodi specie per persone di una certa grandezza. Cordiali Saluti Luciano & Ellen.

Abbiamo passato un bel ponte del primo di maggio io e mio marito insieme ad altre due coppie nostri amici di Salò. Il Bed and Breakfast è gestito dalla signora Ellen, ci fatto sentire a nostro agio, dandoci anche preziosi suggerimenti. La posizione del B&B è ottima e il panorama stupendo immerso nel verde. Ci torneremo sicuramente. Stefania da Firenze.
stayed from 04/29/2018 to 05/01/2018
The answer from the host:
Ciao Stefania (e amici di spiaggia), Mi ha fatto tanto piacere di conoscervi. Spero che vi siete trovati bene. Credo che per tutti è stato un 'ponte di eccellenza (almeno come tempo) e compagnia. Parlando della campagna e di Firenze mi ha sollevato il cuore. Speriamo di vederci un altra volta. Ellen da B&B Boccadalma.

Posto incantevole nel mezzo della natura a metà tra la collina e il mare, dove si possono raggiungere le più belle spiagge da Cala Civette a Cala Martina. Collegati da un sentiero che parte proprio dal b&b. Bella accoglienza Ellen e Luciano, persone veramente disponibili e gentili. Alla colazione non manca niente. Ci tornerei molto volentieri.

Area seaside

We are located in a former farmhouse, renovated B & B, on a hill in Pian d'Alma (Punta Ala) with stunning views over the countryside that is on the sea, such as the Gulf of Punta Ala, Elba and Corsica. Distance from the sea, 5 minutes by car, 10 minutes by bike, or on foot in 15 minutes. At sea we have an agreement with The Camping / Resort Puntala, where you can get all the services, starting from the car park, supermarket, pizzeria bistro style restaurant, beach equipped with parasols and sun loungers, various courses, sailing, tennis and many others. The entrance to the camp is free, but the other services are extra, as all the guests. A short distance from the B & B, you can get two of the most beautiful beaches of Tuscany, such as, 'Cala Violina "and" Cala Civette ".

Travelling abroad
Enjoying a comfortable and intimate bed and breakfast is the best way to discover Italy
(find here our commercial video in Italian). Here you can find pure bed and breakfasts and other kinds of accommodation, like boarding houses, inns, country houses, tourist rentals, family run hotels. This is because in Italy B&Bs are subject to specific legal and economic restrictions, but there are also other kinds of family managed accommodation that cannot legally use the "B&B" name. In our listing you will find the exact appellation for each property, and if you click it you will find all its specific features.
