Arpaderba B&B - Etruscan Coast south Livorno in Tuscanyosta degli Etruschi a Sud di LivornoThe Arpaderba B&B is situated in a unique and outstanding location overlooking the Calafuria Natural Rerserve on the Etruscan Coast south Livorno in Tuscany.
The owners had been searching for a long time for an accommodation in Tuscany where, on the one side they wanted to create a Bed & Breakfast and on the other their home. When they visited for the first time this unique and enchanting place with a ruin on the top, from where one can enjoy breathtaking panoramic views over the whole coast, the islands and the Tuscan landscape, they knew that this was the place they were searching for. After nearly three long years of painstaking restoration works, today guests will find a friendly family atmosphere.

Arpaderba B&B - View from the terrace of the houseThe owner-couple lives together with their two kids in one part of the house, whereas  in the other part are available 6 charming rooms with bathroom, of which one can be suitable also for wheelchair-users.
