About Fiammetta

My name is Fiammetta (on the left in photo), I am 29 years old and I am trainee lawyer in Genova, Italy.

Since I was a young child I used to spend my summer holidays in our family house in Elba that I love with all my heart. Since 2007 I manage rentings and I try to do all my best to make our guests feel at home at Villa Montecristo and to make them feel as I feel when I go there: relaxed and happy!

My mother, Cristina (on the right in the photo) is the owner of the house: she is a professional paintings restorer and an amateur painter and ceramist. She loves Villa Montecristo as me, and we both really enjoy to go there ofter to make house-keeping works as painting, fixing small things, gardening etc. The Villa is big and ancient, so there's always something to be improved and we never get bored there. For sure we two are the men of the house!

We love cooking (especially at Villa Montecristo, where we have a fully equipped kitchen and lot of time!) and animals, dogs especially, that are always more than welcome!

Fiammetta purchased this villa in 1850

Why Fiammetta chose Campo nell'Elba

Villa Montecristo belongs to my mother's family (the Mellini's, an acient roman nobiliar family) since XVIII century: it is a charming tuscan villa and it is furnished with ancient furniture.

In 1814 Emperor Napoleone Bonaparte spent few nights there, in the double room at the ground floor (that so we call 'Napoleon's room'), and he left two iron camp beds that we converted in two tables in the sitting room. In the whole house you can feel Napoleon, as my great grand father, my grand father were (and my father is) Napoleon's heirlooms collectors.

By the way, even if the house has an ancient history and a glorious past (if only it could speak I am quite sure it would have many things to tell…) it also has a present! The Villa sits about 150 meters from the sea: at just three minutes on foot there is Seccheto’s beach, and Seccheto village (and its shops) is less than five minutes walking; Cavoli’s beach, known as the most beautiful beach on the island, is less than ten minutes on foot, so you can have ready at hand almost everything you need!

The Villa and its garden are big enough for many people, so everyone can find his own quite spot to read a book, to sleep, to work, to have a glass of wine by watching the sunset on the sea in Fetovaia’s bay. But there’s also a terrace area with two long garden tables where we use to have lunch and dinner all together, eating Italian typical meals we cooked in the afternoon with fresh organic food or, why not?, to enjoy a great barbecue!

If you want to lazely soak up sun there are four sunbeds at your disposal in the south garden that are just waiting for you…

Since three years we renovated a garden belt behind the house with a granitic table and a bench for solitary people that want to be alone with theirself to work or to meditate in a peaceful spot: from there we have a wonderful view on the bay and no-one could disturb!

Villa Montecristo a Dream location on Elba

  • 5 out of 5
My 50th birthday was to be a special family ocassion and my husband booked Villa Montecristo on Elba as we had 15 in our party arriving from Australia. On arriving at the villa the first impression was of a beautiful Tuscan garden with olive trees citrus beautiful summer flowering trees and a view from the garden over the sea that you always hope will be there as you imagined it when booking. From the front terrace we could see lazy yachts off the coast and below us the best swimming bay on the island. Even though the main road sweeps around the cliff between the villa and the water it adds to the atmosphere as the passing parade is always good to watch from the privacy of the large terrace. A few minutes walk leads to the beach and clear emerald green and blue waters. The local cafe is great spot for breakfast and coffee and the bakery is superb just up the road. There is an excellent seafood restaurant within minutes from the villa and also a pizzeria. The villa itself is beautiful, full of antiques and interesting artefacts relating to Napoleon and his influence on Elba. The rooms of the villa are large and welcoming. There is plenty of room in the house and gardens to find your own quiet spot. With so many people in the villa we also used the dependance - a separate building with two lovely twin rooms overlooking the water complete with full bathroom and equipped kitchen. The owners of Villamontecristo could not have been more helpful and caring in ensuring our holiday was a success. The housekeeper and caretaker were always a text message away and extremely friendly and helpful. The villa was beautifully clean and all linen supplied professionally laundered. For my birthday dinner celebration the owners found a superb chef who came to the house to prepare a stunning Tuscan feast. The villa kitchen is wonderful to cook in for enthusiasts who love to buy the local produce at the market in Marina di Campo 10 minutes away. If you don't have a car the local bus service runs regularly around the island. I dream of returning to Villa Elba and fully recommend a visit. We stayed for 2 weeks and it started to feel like home.

Erholsame zwei Wochen in einem stilvollen Haus.

  • 5 out of 5
Am Ende der Feriensaison 2014 besuchten wir (10 Erwachsene, 4 Kinder, 2 Hunde) die Villa Montecristo. Was wir antrafen, übertraf unsere Erwartungen deutlich. Die angetroffenen Räumlichkeiten entsprechen in der Tat den Bildern, die man auf der Homepage einsehen kann. Nichts ist verzerrt oder übertrieben dargestellt. Weder das Haupthaus noch das Grundstück noch das Nebengebäude. Alles chic! Da wir uns (schon wegen der Kinder) überwiegend selbst versorgten, waren wir sehr positiv überrascht, dass alle notwendigen "Arbeitsgeräte" in ausreichender Menge und Güte in der Küche zur Verfügung standen...wir haben auch schon andere Erfahrungen gemacht. Wie gesagt Geschirr, Töpfe, Pfannen, Gläser, Herd, Backofen, Spülmaschine, Waschmaschine, großer Kühlschrank u.v.m. --- alles vorhanden --- nebst einem Weber Holzkohlegrill.
Naja, das Haus ist vom Meer durch die Küstenstraße getrennt - da ist ein wenig Vorsicht beim überqueren der Straße geboten. Allerdings erreicht man so den wirklich schönen Strand von Secchetto in 2 Minuten, Cavoli in ca. 5 Minuten und wer etwas länger laufen möchte - Fetovaia in rund 10 Minuten.
A propos wandern...Von Secchetto ausgehend gibt es ein paar sehr schöne Touren über die hinter dem Haus liegenden Berghänge. Auch die Besteigung des Monte Capane ist von hier aus möglich (Aufstieg ca. 4,5 - 5 Stunden).

In Secchtto selbst befinden sich mehrere klein Lädchen für das Notwendigste. Außerdem noch 2-3 Restaurants und eine Bar. Eine Apotheke und eine nette
Eisstation sind ebenso vorhanden. Unsere Großeinkäufe haben wir jeweils in Marina di Campo (ca. 10 Fahrminuten) erledigt.

Zu den Vermietern können wir nur sagen: alles perfekt - wir hatten bereits im Voraus mehrfach Kontakt per E-Mail. Fiametta - herzlichen Dank.

Was uns nicht 100 % gefallen hat:
Da fällt uns spontan rein gar nichts ein. Die Straße ist eben da wo sie ist. Das Haus ist mediterran und die Installationen sind vielleicht nicht so wie wir es gewohnt sind.

Wir können das Haus nicht weiterempfehlen (aus Angst, dass es dann immer ausgebucht ist) *smile*.

Und wer ein wenig Zeit hat -
sollte sich einmal den Bildern im Haupthaus zuwenden und die Familiengeschichte der Vermieter erörtern - mit Unterstützung von Wikipedia (im Haus gibt es W-Lan/WiFi erfährt man da viele Dinge.

Amazing family getaway at Villa Montecristo

  • 5 out of 5
We’ve been at Villa Montechristo during summer 2014 with our big family of sixteen people.
It was probably the best family holiday we have ever had: wonderful location, two minutes along the road to the nearest sandy beautiful beach of Secchetto with blu and emerald water, three minutes to the small tiny village. Just crossing the street, one minutes from the villa, there are a sort of natural granitic swimming pool where children can play safely and they really enjoyed it.
The Villa itself is so charming, decorated with a very good taste and very well equipped, the garden is big and facing the sea. We had many bbq at the sunset and it was great.
Once the weather was cloudy we rented some mountain bikes to discover the island. It was a very nice experience. The island offers many many activities to do.
We have such a good memory of our trip that we will surely come back again next year. The owner is very gentle and helpful. We can’t ask more! Fully recommended to families but also big groups of friends or couples looking for a romantic getaway on the sea.

A perfect family holiday on the sea!

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Montecristo is the ideal place if you want to spend a holiday with family and friends.
The villa is very charming and well equipped.
The position is unique: few steps away to the beautiful beach and few minutes - 2 or 3 - on foot to the beautiful village.
We can't ask more! I warmly recommend it!

Simply a great holiday! Fully reccomended!

  • 5 out of 5
I spent a holiday at Villa Montecristo with my family (five children and one small dog) and it has been the best holiday we've ever had! The owners are very kind and the villa so beautiful and well located: one minute to the sea, three minutes to the typical village nearby with all necessary shops. We had tasty meals under the pergola in the garden and the island itself offers many activities.
The garden has an amazing view to the sea with beautiful sunsets. We appreciated a beautiful spot with a stone table on the land stripe just behind the villa where you can stay to read a book alone watching the spectacular bay view while having a glass of good tuscan wine!
We are a family of cookers and we enjoyed very much the well equipped kitchen and the organic food from the small marked nearby. Our dog Rey was very happy too because he had many spots in the garned and loved jumping in the sea.
We loved Villa Montecristo very much as it is so charming and you can really feel like home there but.. away from home!
We try to come back again next summer for sure.
Jozeph/Josh and the whole family
