Good view, clean, wifi easy to connect, kitchen had everything needed. Called to say we had arrived, greeted and shown around 5 minutes later. Town quiet in low season, take food with you if you don't want to eat out, shops only open in the morning ( in winter).
The air, atmosphere, beauty, view, service and tranquility
Nice atmosphere. Lovely location. The garden and the building are beautiful. Great views over the city.
The showers were a bit unhandy, hard to keep your clothes dry while showering. The bed linen is a bit minimal, the pillow provided is really tiny. I still slept great however.
La vecchia scuola was exactly what I was looking for, and I didn't even know it at first. It is very reasonably priced, in a GREAT location and is very comfortable to stay in. I would highly recommend staying here while visiting the lovely Cavo, which I also fell in love with.
The view and location
A bit overpriced
Great location bang in centre of a lovely Elba town
location was fantastic. cavo is a beautiful little village. the view from the room was gorgeous. alessanda was great! would definately stay again.
feels unfair to write anything here. if i could offer a small suggestion - a microwave would have made it perfect :)
It has a great view and the area very calm its like a small village so if you are looking to be away from all the noise and looking for relaxation.underneath it theres a good restaurant its a very small town so u only have 3 or 4 options of restaurants.. the owner was nice .the house is clean and very calm.
We took the three bedroom appartment the bed and the sofa bed were not so comfortable and it said that has a terrace thats not true only a big windows
nice sea view
If you want to escape from everything for a while, this is a good place to do it--especially in off-season! Cavo is pretty and tiny. In season, there's a ferry that arrives right in front of La Vecchia Scuola. There's a great pizza place right under the room, a pasticceria out the back and beaches right out the front door.
Although advertising full internet, there was no internet at all. We were told that the repeater wasn't working. Travel to the rest of the island was made somewhat difficult by the location of Cavo.
Excellent view of the sea and port. Nicely restored building with good, basic appartments.
