In fact this is exactly what happened. Two weeks stay, mid July, 5 of us (we also used the annex double bedroom dependance, so we had a comfortable 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms accomodation). What we found was a simple but nice, well-equipped (overall the kitchen) and functional house, perfect for our needs. The two external terrace were magnificent, overall the lateral one, repared and completely hidden/private, where we had all our meals always using the large barbecue and real wood. Working on the barbecue (my passion) and watch the sunset in the front sea was unique. Seaview from the whole house was magnificent too, overall from the 3 bedrooms: what a pleasure open the shelters in the morning and see the blue! The few times we decided to stay home we spent our time on the terrace, between sun and shadow, in the quietness, it was really agreable and relaxing. The location is wonderful: extremely quiet, in the green, at the end of a small road and over a stretch of untouched beautiful coast. Access to the sea through a rather steep path but reward was priceless, a lonely pebble beach (small comfortable stones) that could be reached just by boat or on foot. It was named La Cala and we absolutely loved it. Its colours, its variety (both out and underwater), its still wild looking were exceptionals. We also discovered La Fontina, a small hidden bay just below the house with an incredible underwater life. We also rented a motorboat in Sant’Andrea and visited the whole coast. This was our fourth visit to Elba, always in different locations: we can say this was the best, the most genuine and beautiful part of the Island and the best accomodation too. Bakery and small market in La Zanca (5 min by car), fresh fish every morning at Marciana village (small truck of local fishermen), sweet beneficial water at the free fount of Napoleone (between Marciana and Poccio villages). Discover all this was exiting, as well as our whole stay. We will surely come back again in the future. Definiteley suggested. Graff Family Amsterdam, Netherlands
