INSEL LEBEN

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.

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.

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.

In summer you will enjoy returning from a hot beach to a cool evening breeze at the Castello!
