The breakfast was lovely, Gaetano is a good host and very polite. Nice central location and also less than 5 mn walk to the beach The room was big and with a nice balcony The facilities are great. And near by there is a restaurant not expensive with the best pizzas in Italy. Gracie Mille Gaetano.

Wonderful experience
I stayed here while on vacation with my two children. The B&B is very charming and we loved our room. However, the best part was the people at Al Vecchio Pioppo. They went above and beyond the level of service I expected. I highly recommend you stay at Al Vecchio Pioppo on your next visit to Italy.

Weekend a Praia
B&B comodo, pulito e dotato di tutti i confort. Posizionato in zona centrale, a due minuti a piedi dal lungo mare. Ma il valore aggiunto è la gentilezza e la disponibilità di Gaetano, il proprietario. Sicuramente ci ritorneremo. Consigliatissimo. Saveriuzza 😁

Freundliche Gastgeber; nur für Zwischenstop
Habe Zimmer für 70 € gebucht. Das Zimmer ist klein, heiss (unter dem Dach), ohne richtiges Fenster und hat kein eigenes Bad. Konnte in unteres Zimmer wechseln für 100 €. Dieses ist grösser, heller und hat ein eigenes Bad. Alles ist sauber die Besitzer sind sehr zuvorkommend und nett. Das Frühstück ist etwas mickrig; typisch italienisch. In der Umgebung gibt es nicht viel zu sehen. Der nahe Strand hat Kieselsteine und ist nicht schön.

Fint B&B
Supertrevligt B&B med trevligt värdpar. Vi var bara i Praia a Mare två nätter. Första kvällen visade värden, som kan hyggligt bra engelska, oss till en trevlig kvällsöppen pizzeria. Dagen därpå tog han med oss ut i sin båt till Dinos Island, mot en lagom kostnad. Väl värt ett besök. Jag skulle rekommendera att ni ringer honom i förväg och bokar en båttur. Vi var i Praia i mitten av september och vädret var fortfarande riktigt härligt, runt 30 grader varmt. En av tjejerna i sällskapet har nu planerat in nästa resa till samma B&B och då tar hon med man och barn i stället.
