B&B BOCCADALMA


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 wi-fi 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.
