The kind and caring couple who lived underneath Rossella and Tito were great but we saw little of them as they worked away from the house long hours in the hospitality industry. Deep in the country with a tiny private airfield near by which was not in any way a problem , interesting and not noisy. Elba is fantastic for walking and swimming.

                                                                                                      Our experience was that the property is better than the description, and that the photographs are not nearly as good as the real view from our balcony. Once I sat on the balcony and saw the panoramic view from Marina di Campo to Italy, I did not want to go anywhere else except the beach. I was happy to sit on the balcony every day and just enjoy the scenery. The property is in a relatively quiet neighbourhood and sits on a hill with an unobstructed view of the sea. Walk 3 minutes up the hill and 3 minutes across the ridge and you are in Capoliveri, which is one of the most interesting townships on Elba. If you feel the need to get into your car, you can drive 10 minutes and be in Porto Azzuro with its lovely waterfront activity. Our favorite restaurant was only a 15 minute drive away in Lacona. (Capoliveri and Porto Azzuro also had great restaurants!) Within a 5-10 minute drive there are numerous beaches. There are beaches within walking distance, but the return home is uphill, of which I am not a fan. I give a special shoutout to Naregno, which is only ten minutes away and a terrific swimming beach. Yes, the water temperature was OK for swimming in the afternoons, this April anyway. Our very hospitable hostess was Loriano, the owner's daughter. From our first contact to our last night, she graciously answered our every question and handled our requests. We stayed in the biggest unit, and it was clean and modern. The bed was comfortable and there were big wardrobes with hangers and drawers. The WiFi was the best we've ever encountered on holiday, and we had no trouble taking care of our details and schedules, even watching a ball game. Not that we cared, but for the couch potatoes (why are you holidaying on Elba??) I will mention that the TV is small, but has plenty of satellite channels. All in all, staying here really made our holiday special. It's definitely one of the best ever for us. We would certainly consider staying here again if we return to Elba. In fact, the property would be a wonderful place to stay permanently.
