I am happy to open the doors of my house to Airbnb friends from all over the world. I love this place deeply and I expect the best possible care and respect, As I try to do the same with my guests.
I usually take my shoes off inside home and wear slippers or just socks. Both for hygiene and comfort. I would really appreciate if my guests could do the same, especially upstairs. Thank you

Sono lieta di mettere a disposizione degli amici di Airbnb il mio appartamento a cui sono molto legata affettivamente. Mi aspetto rispetto e cura dell'ambiente cosi come anch'io dalla mia parte cerco di fare con i miei ospiti.
Io preferisco non usare le scarpe in casa sia per igiene che per comfort, gradirei molto se i miei ospiti potessero fare lo stesso. Specialmente sul soppalco. Grazie

This is a beautiful place with a wonderful location! Very clean and nice inside. It was quiet at night and it felt secluded away from traffic and noise during the day as well, but still within a 5-10 minute walk of lots of great bars and restaurants in the old town area (barBene was our favorite). One thing to be careful of: the entrance to the apartment area is the gate for Forte Stella, not exactly where the map shows in the airbnb app. The upstairs area was charming, but the bed was pretty uncomfortable - kind of a broken down old pullout type. Aside from that we couldn't have asked for more! Highly recommended!

A nice apartment, with a stunning view! As others already have said, it's quite a walk up to the apartment. I didn't sleep as well as expected because of the sleeping sofa. I missed a normal bed/ comfortable matras, which you should expect with the privé. Guiseppe welcomed us and he is so lovely!

1. No „welcome"- the person welcoming us was Mr Giuseppe, who did not understand English at all, but most importantly had no time to show us around an apartment and disclose particulars of an offer. All he did was to leave us the keys. It was not possible to use the gas stove, because gas cylinder was not unscrewed. Also there was lack of basic kitchen equipment for instance: a kettle to boil water. Mr Giuseppe did not explain us anything. 2. Double bed on the mezzanine on which we were supposed to sleep, was standing on the books, with one leg hanging in the air, which therefore threatened our safety while sleeping. Evidence can be attached upon request to this message in form of photos, that we took to prove our arguments. 3. Our communication with Alessandro consisted of us asking to fix above mentioned problems to be resolved and Alessandro replying that „none of that is a problem”. Overall, he had not solved any mentioned problems whatsoever. During our one night stay, he did not show up, neither on the day we arrived nor the following day, which consequently resulted in us leaving this apartment. 4. Offer did not have air conditioning and we were aware of it, but providing us with only one grimy windmill was ineffective at room with temperature well about 40 degrees 5.We waited until 11.00 a.m. the following day (Tuesday) but despite Alessandro’s undertaking, Mr Giuseppe did not show up to explain the basic rules for using the apartment nor to try and resolve some of difficulties 6. Generally present dirt. Bathroom - electrical installation of bathroom’s lighting was out of protection box. There were multiple moths in all the lamp. In the washbasin, bathtub and canteen there were torn metal parts. The toilet was covered in dirt. On the floor, there was a lot of glued hair, which proved nothing but lack of preparations for guests arrival. Mostly everything seemed dirty from glass to silverware. 7. Wardrobes were absolutely not cleared and contained many old items inside for example old shoes, which caused a very stinky smell. There was no way we would put our things in there, so we kept them in our suitcases.

The apartment is very nice and has the most fantastic views over the sea, Portoferraio and parts of Elba. Fort Stella is close to everything, only a few minutes walk from beaches, shopping, restaurants etc. Our stay was very pleasent and booking, communication, handling over the keys etc. went smooth.

We had a wonderful time. The people and the town were great. Great restaurants and always something to do in the old part of town. A very unique and nice rental property. Well stocked kitchen and washing machine was a bonus. It is at the very top of a cliff so you need to be prepared to walk up cobble stone streets and stairs. Our Fitbit got a good workout.
