AN EXCELLENT PLACE TO STAY, FANTASTIC HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
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!

  • 5 of 5
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.

DONA LIDIA

  • 5 of 5
Donna Lidia ist ein sehr großzügiges, helles, freundliches im Inselstil eingerichtetes Appartement. Man erreicht die Wohnung über eine von herrlichen Blumen und Pflanzen flankierten Außentreppe. Auf der ersten Ebene befinden sich die Küche (mit Gasherd, Backofen, Kühl-/Gefrierkombination, Wasserkocher und Mikrowelle; die unbezahlbare Waschmaschiene nicht zu vergessen), ein Duschbad, ein Schlafzimmer mit Doppelbett und das geräumige Wohn-/Esszimmer (hier eine Bettcouch). Über eine Treppe erreicht man einen Flur ( von hier aus hat man sogar Meeresblick! ), das zweite Duschbad und ein Schlafzimmer mit zwei Einzelbetten. Das Appartement ist mit viel Liebe gestaltet und sehr geflegt. Für uns als Deutsche war es eine besonder angenhme Überraschung Frotteehandtücher , anstatt der in Italien üblichen glatten Stoffhandtücher vorzufinden.
Tony und Ombreta, die Eigentümer, waren immer sehr hilfsbreit und haben sich immer darum gekümmert, das alles im bester Ordnung war.
Die Wohnung liegt zentral und gut erreichbar in Castello, die Schlafzimmer sind ruhig gelegen. Etwas unterhalb des Wohnzimmers befindet sich eine Pizzaria (die Pizza ist lecker), was manchmal zu hungertreibenden Duftwolken im Wohnzimmer führte und bei voller Belegung an lauen Abenden auch mal etwas lauter werden kann (dann einfach Fenster schließen!)
Wir waren schon das zweite Mal in Dona Lidia und haben auch schon wieder gebucht, für uns ist es "unsere Insel", mit viel Erholung, da kein Sightseeing oder Shopping-Stress, nette kleine Buchten, Schnorchelmöglichkeiten und auch Wandermöglichkeiten.

BEAUTIFUL GIGLIO

  • 5 of 5
Having visited a number of medieval towns over the years, we have long wanted to stay in on of these towns and experience first hand the traditional way of life. Giglio Castello is beautifully positioned with breathtaking views all around the island.
Donna Lidia lies right in the heart of medieval Castello. It has been sympathetically restored and blends naturally in with the surrounding architecture. Inside, the rooms are beautifully appointed, and combine local and typical furnishing along with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay.
The owners were very welcoming and went to great lengths to ensure that we had everything we needed to enjoy our holiday. They are both very passionate about Donna Lidia and their way of life on Isola del Giglio, and having shared this way of life for 2 weeks we can easily see why. Not too surprising then, we would emphatically recommend Donna Lidia and certainly intend to go back again.
Despite the relative size of the island there is a surprising amount to do. The bus service between the 3 villages is superb, allowing easy access to the many shops and restaurants. But we found the best way to explore the island was by the many ancient paths and tracks which take you through stunning orchards, farmland and natural scenery.

CARATTERISTICO APPARTAMENTO MOLTO ACCOGLIENTE

  • 5 of 5
Posizione bellissima all' interno del castello, molto caratteristica.
Parcheggi a pagamento comodi proprio a due passi dall'appartamento.
Appartamento molto spazioso, ideale per 4/6 persone.
Noi eravamo due coppie ed è stato l' ideale, ogni coppia aveva il suo bagno e la sua camera.
La cucina è molto spaziosa ed è attrezzata di tutto ciò che può servire per cucinare.
Il soggiorno principale è molto confortevole e spazioso.
I bagni sono in ottime condizioni, puliti e dotati entrambi di doccia.
Al piano di sotto c'è anche la lavatrice.
La notte si dormiva veramente bene poiché essendo sopra il livello del mare rimane molto più fresco, niente zanzare.
La sera ci si può muovere a piedi e visitare il castello.
Durante il giorno ci muovevamo con la macchina, ma ci sono numerosi autobus per andare al Campese o al Porto.
Il giudizio complessivo dell' appartamento è ottimo, siamo stati tutti molto soddisfatti.

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.
