We spent 5 glorious days in the "eagle's nest" overlooking Castello. A very steep driveway from Castello's main piazza leads to the cozy house which had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, and the panoramic view was amazing! The owner, Mr. Sergio, was absolutely lovely; he was very responsive to questions, provided thorough instructions about the house, and even arranged a special evening of aperitifs and dinner at a wonderful restaurant on my birthday. Our time in Giglio was simply magical thanks to Mr. Sergio!
The apartment is located on a beautiful beach, with just a short walk to the Porto. It is well equipped, with a personal touch from the friendly owners. We spent most of the time on the spaceous balconies with a great view over the sea. The outdoor area also has a large dinner table and grill, a perfect place for family meals. The master bedroom opens up beautifully to the view, and we fell asleep and woke up to the sound of waves. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms (in addition to outdoor shower) it was a perfect location for seaside holiday with kids. The kids had a great time playing and snorkeling on the beach, and there is a swimmingpool that we also frequently used. The island is quiet, with a lot of unspoilt nature and hiking trails leading up to the mountains and along the coast. The main town, Castello, is a magnificent fortified medieval town, easlily accessible by bus from Porto. It's also easy to get around with the friendly taxi drivers on the island. For anyone looking for a place to stay in Giglio, we can warmly recommend this apartment.
