Just to clear up any confusion, this accommodation is in Cavo, not Rio Marina (the postal address can appear a bit confusing). There are ferry services to/from Piombino and Portoferraio, plus a limited bus service to/from Portoferraio via Rio Marina, Porto Azzurro and Capoliveri, so Cavo is accessible. We thought Cavo is a lovely little place to stay, picturesque with...

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for reviewing our structure. We apologize again for the problem with the water supply in your apartment, we tried to fix it as soon as possible but it was not enough to welcome you for the first night of your stay.

Stayed here on our visit to Elba and was a great place to stay. Firstly make sure you get the Piombino Ferry to Cavo rather than Rio Marina like we did. Secondly, the lady owner (who was lovely), does;t speak much English. This is something that is quite common on Elba, but which actually made it more appealing to me!...

We booked this 1 bedroom flat for 2 nights, great location, very clean, right above all the bars and restaurants. Free parking on the spot, 15 min drive from the ferry boat. Would stay here again for sure.

Actually I could see from the bed the sunrise! Alessandra was waiting for us after midnight to show us the free parking place. Minuses: 1. kitchen hood! terrifying! all the cooking smoke and smell doesn't get out of room through the kitchen hood, as it is not a pipe or other device attached! So, everything is exhaust in the house:...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review of La vecchia Scuola. We are pleased you enjoyed our location, just a few steps from the sea, and the view from your room. It's important to say that since the first January 2015 the management has changed and all of the services provided are now well indicated on all of our sales...
