Approximately 450 hectares of forest, fruit orchards, Mediterranean maquis and cultivated fields cover the slopes down to the sea, where guests can enjoy private beaches. The coastline covers 12 km, where small beaches and bays alternate with steeply rocks. The holiday village offers a variety of accommodation: the ancient master villa, tastefully adapted to a small hotel; apartments that are placed in the farm houses 'Fattorias', some houses amongst the pines forests as well as the three detached villas facing the sea which are offered here: Villa Ape, Villa Agave and Villa Eucalipto. In 2006 they have been fully restored. All houses are furnished very tastefully. Due to the nice interior and the functional equipment the villas are very comfortable. Each villa has it 's private pool with stunning sea views.

The restaurant with ample terrace offers both typical Italian food and international dishes made with passion and professionalism. Furthermore there is another restaurant approx. 6 km distant, a simple building located in the area where the wood opens to the beach.

    About Elba Island

    Capoliveri: The pretty island village is about 9 km from the house. Shops of all kinds, bank, post office, pharmacy, bars and restaurants are located there. The old fishing village, the small harbour and the picturesquely painted houses are all in the centre of the village. Capoliveri has a pretty beach promenade and romantic lanes - favourite spots to meet and go for an evening stroll.

    The island: The island of Elba is a sports lover's paradise - it is just the right place for all those who wish to spend an active holiday enjoying what both nature and water have to offer. Just 10 km from the mainland and with an area of 224 square kilometers, it is the largest island of the Tuscan archipelago and Italy's third largest island. A large part of Elba and the Tuscan islands (Pianosa, Capraia, Montecristo, Giglio and Giannutri) is under the conservation protection of the Tuscan archipelago. The climate is always mild at an average temperature of around 16°C. The average winter temperature is 10°C, 14°C in spring, 23°C in summer and 17°C in autumn. There are more than 70 beaches on the coastline, some of which are quiet spots, while others are more frequently visited.

    Connections: Good connections from Elba to the Tuscan coast in Piombino. The ferry from Piombino to Portoferraio (Elba's capital) takes about 50 min. The timetable depends on the season (the ferry leaves almost every hour during high season). Piombino is about two hours from Florence (motorway), which means that day trips to Florence or the Tuscan hinterland are also possible if you stay here. Elba can be reached by aeroplane; in midsummer Marina di Campo is a destination from Milan, Rome and Pisa in Italy, Bern in Switzerland, Munich in Germany and Vienna in Austria.

    Sport: The island is blessed with many different beaches: rocky, pebble and sandy. During the summer sun umbrellas and sunloungers can be rented on the beaches by the day. The water is clear and refreshing, it is considered the cleanest in the Mediterranean. All kinds of water sports are offered on the island. Monte Capanne is 1.018 m high and Elba's highest mountain. From its peak, hikers enjoy a splendid view of the mainland, Corsica, Capraia, Pianosa and Monte Cristo. The forests and mountain routes attract trekkers and mountain bikers. Trekking guides can be hired to ensure that you experience the most breathtaking views on hikes on marked pathways in experienced company. Riding stables organise guided rides in the hills.

    Excursions: The ancient hill villages, such as Poggio, Marciana and Capoliveri, as well as the beautiful town Portoferraio with its Medicean Renaissance fortress and Napoleon's residence are worthwhile destinations for excursions. Take a walk to see sanctuaries, archaeological sites and memorial churches. After a one-hour ferry crossing and a few kilometres only on the mainland, you will reach the Etruscan towns of Populonia (very close to Piombino), Pisa and Lucca.

    History: Elba was inhabited by the Greeks in 10 BC. Over the centuries, it was conquered by Etruscans, Romans, Normans and Saracens. In 1802 it was annexed by France and in 1814 Napoleon Bonaparte was exiled to Elba following the Treaty of Fontainebleau. Napoleon never sensed his exile as a banishment, and he left several traces, among them two residences which can be visited today.

    Ruhe und Entspannung
    Left on Jul 23, 2014 for a stay in Jul 2014
    Wir verbrachten 1 Woche im erweiterten Familienkreis (8 Erwachsene) in der Villa Ape. Das ehemalige Wohnhaus der Eigentümer des Weingutes liegt völlig abseits der übrigen Anlage mit wunderschönem Blick auf Monte Christo. Die Einrichtung ist vollständig und zweckmässig, es hat neben den 6 Schlafzimmern noch 4 weitere Notschlafstellen. Die Möblierung des Hauses und der Aussenanlage ist stilgerecht. Die Liegenschaft ist gut unterhalten und sauber. Die hohen Räume vermitteln ein einzigartiges Raumgefühl. Wir haben uns ausgesprochen wohl gefühlt. Die übrigen Orte der Insel sind nur mit etwas Aufwand zu erreichen; die letzten 10 km führen über eine Strasse ohne Hartbelag. Gleiches gilt für die Zufahrten der Strände der Anlage.
