                              Notes

                                • Clean, sandy beaches are 10 minutes away by bus or car, others may be reached on foot or by boat, and the sea is renowned for its crystal-clear water. At the beaches you can hire sun-beds, umbrellas and pedaloes, while at Giglio Porto there are excellent diving facilities, water taxis to take you to a quiet bay and motor boats for hire if you want to explore the coast on your own. You can also explore the island using the many ancient footpaths which will lead you through beautiful natural scenery and spectacular views. Cars cannot circulate within the walls of Giglio Castello, so it is very safe for children to play. The nearest car-park is 1 minute's walk from the house, while shops, bars restaurants and pizzeria are just around the corner. There are excellent restaurants for all tastes at Castello, Campese and Il Porto, while bars and shops are just down the street. In summer you will enjoy returning from a hot beach to a cool evening breeze at the Castello!

                                  La vacanza perfetta

                                  Enzo M.

                                  L'isola del Giglio è un posto bellissimo e stare al Castello è il modo migliore per godere del suo fascino, con la possibilità di raggiungere in modo agevole e veloce le spiagge. La casa di Ombretta e Tony, che si trova in uno degli angoli più suggestivi del Castello, è stata una vera sorpresa perché è molto più grande e confortevole della tipica casa che uno si aspetta di trovare quando va in vacanza. La casa è arredata con molto buon gusto ed è molto fresca anche nelle giornate più calde. I padroni di casa sono stati perfetti nel farci trovare tutto quello che si può desiderare, anche qualora uno decida di mangiare in casa, cosa che, in verità, noi facevamo solo per la prima colazione. La casa si sviluppa su due piani: al piano principale c'è la cucina, ben attrezzata, con un ampio soggiorno e una camera matrimoniale con un bagno annesso; al piano di sopra c'è un'altra camera con il proprio bagno e un soggiorno con un comodo divano letto utilizzabile anche per due persone. È sicuramente una casa molto consigliabile, ma soprattutto spero di avere presto la possibilità di tornarci io stesso!

                                  Grazie della recensione, Enzo. Siete stati ospiti perfetti e ci auguriamo senz'altro di riavervi presto con noi!

                                  Ombretta e Tony

                                  Ottima settimana al Giglio

                                  Francesco B.

                                  Abbiamo soggiornato in questo appartamento con la mia famiglia. Siamo stati perfettamente. Tutti gli ambienti sono estremamente funzionali e dotati di tutto ciò che necessita. La pulizia è minuziosa e l'accoglienza assolutamente cordiale. Voto 10 e lode; non si può chiedere di più - Grazie Ombretta e Tony. Torneremo presto a trovarvi.

                                  INSEL LEBEN

                                  Also wir waren eine Woche auf der Insel Giglio und haben bei Ombretta & Toni in deren Ferienwohnung gewohnt - es war wunderbar - mittendrin im Insel Leben - die Wohnung von Ombretta & Toni ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet - alles was man jemals benötigen könnte gibt es in der Küche aber auch sonst ist alles vorhanden - wir waren zwei Erwachsene und ein Kind also genügend Platz da es zwei Schlafzimmer gibt - die Whg ist ideal für eine vierköpfige Familie od zwei Paare - beide Schlafzimmer haben ein eigens Bad und die Schlafzimmer sind auf versch. Etagen - das Wohnzimmer mit großem Esstisch ist ebenfalls ideal für vier Personen - Wir kommen gerne wieder...;-)

                                  Besonders zu erwähnen ist die Gastfreundschaft von Ombretta & Toni die beiden sprechen zudem perfektes Englisch und helfen immer gerne wenn nötig - Toll - Viele Grüße, Hatice & Tim & Andreas.

                                  Excellent! everything was perfect! lovely persons!

                                  The house is very beautiful, clean and spacious!! With our two young daughters (2 and 5 years old) we had a great time. The owners are really friendly and helpful, everything was wonderful. Thanks to Tony and Ombretta for everything!!

                                  An excellent place to stay, fantastic holiday

                                  Donna Lidia is within the walled Castello on top of the hill. It is a very old scenic city with places to eat, a bank, shops and walks down to the beaches. The accommodation is very clean, comfortable, spacious and had everything we needed. The owners were incredibly generous and helpful. We caught the train from Rome, then a bus from Orbetello Scalo to the ferry, then another bus to Castello Giglio. It was very easy to travel to the island from Rome and also around the Island even though we did not have a car. The views are spectacular and the beaches had excellent visibility for snorkeling. Our three teenage children, as well as us, had a fantastic time. August is very hot but there was no need for air conditioning because of the cool breeze in the evening, so we slept well. Going back to Rome was like going to a different planet. Isola de Giglio is an island with a lot of history yet also a lively and relaxing place to spend a holiday. Highly recommended and many thanks to our hosts.

                                  Best holiday ever!

                                  Ruth L.

                                  We stayed here for an idyllic 10 days last month. The house is charming, well-equipped ,spacious, spotless and in an ideal location in the heart of the walled town of Castello.

                                  The owners couldn't have been more warm and welcoming. We had intended to stay for 7 days but loved it so much we decided not to return to Rome for the last few days of our holiday as planned and stayed on in Giglio instead.

                                  Giglio is an amazing island with beautiful scenery, great beaches and a relaxed pace of life. If you want to get away from the stresses of everyday life and

                                  recharge your batteries this is the place to go. We'll definitely be back to Giglio and hope to stay at Donna Lidia again.

                                  Isola del Giglio, Grosseto, Italy

                                  Castello is a fortified medieval village situated at 400m altitude on the beautiful Tuscan island of Giglio. It has a unique atmosphere thanks to narrow, granite-paved streets, delightful close-built houses, spectacular natural scenery and breathtaking views of mainland Argentario and nearby islands Giannutri, Monte Cristo and Elba. Clean, sandy beaches are 10 minutes away by bus or car, others may be reached on foot or by boat, and the sea is renowned for its crystal-clear water. At the beaches you can hire sun-beds, umbrellas and pedaloes, while at Campese or Giglio Porto there are excellent diving facilities, water taxis to take you to a quiet bay and motor boats for hire if you want to explore the coast on your own. There are excellent restaurants for all tastes at Castello and by the sea, while bars and shops are just down the street. A holiday on Isola del Giglio is an unforgettable experience and many people return to the island year after year to enjoy its special hospitality. Giglio is beautiful all year round, but particularly so in springtime when the island's abundant wild flowers are in bloom and a walk along one of the island's ancient footpaths provides stunning views. The sea is usually comfortably warm for swimming from June to October, while scuba diving is practised in all seasons. Activities: swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving, canoeing, sailing, boating, walking, nature trails, bird-watching, in-shore fishing, deep-sea fishing... and just lazing on the beach.
