          Just to clear up any confusion, this accommodation is in Cavo, not Rio Marina (the postal address can appear a bit confusing). There are ferry services to/from Piombino and Portoferraio, plus a limited bus service to/from Portoferraio via Rio Marina, Porto Azzurro and Capoliveri, so...More

          We booked this 1 bedroom flat for 2 nights, great location, very clean, right above all the bars and restaurants. Free parking on the spot, 15 min drive from the ferry boat. Would stay here again for sure.
