My family and I stayed at Al Vecchio Pioppo for two nights in September 2011. The B and B is very central, right on the main street of Praia a Mare, and steps from the beautiful beach. There is plenty of free street parking right outside the B and B. There are plenty of shops, bars, and gelaterie (ice cream shops) steps from the B and B. Gaetano recommended the best gelateria in town and he was right!
Our hosts Gaetano and Antonella were extremely friendly, hospitable, and welcoming. Gaetano is a terrific tour guide and took his own time to give us a tour of Praia and the main attractions. He also gave great recommendations for local seafood restaurants and we were happy that he did so.
The B and B has all the modern amenities, including air conditioning in all the rooms. It was spotlessly clean, tidy and comfortable. The rooms are spacious with large open sitting/breakfast areas.
Lunch and dinner can be arranged, and we had a fabulous dinner prepared by Antonella. We had dinner with the family and enjoyed the food and engaging conversation - the highlight of our stay. It was unfortunate that we could not stay longer but next time we will be sure to visit them again.
The combination of the town of Praia a Mare and the hospitality of Gaetano and Antonella made our visit quite enjoyable and memorable. Thank you Gaetano and Antonella for a fantastic stay. We’ll be back!
