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.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The villa was perfect for us, located on the top of cliff and it was very quiet. The location is outstanding! From the huge terrace you have a breathtaking view over the sea and the island Montecristo. From sunrise to sunset, we enjoyed the wonderful atmosphere and at night, we could see the sky full of stars. The outdoor area was well equipped with a shower, which worked very well and a barbecue grill. The whirlpool was fantastic, relaxing at sunset and watching the sailing boats passing by. The pool was very clean. There was enough space to eat outside or to relax in the comfortable couches. Inside, the kitchen was well equipped. The rooms are large enough and stylish furnished. At the walls, you will find wonderful pictures of Jaques Mayol, the legendary apnea diver and father of the owner Jean-Jaques Mayol. We have been very impressed. The WLAN worked well throughout the house. There is a small cove under the cliffs, reachable by a small trail. It is like a private place to go to swim or snorkeling with the fishes. Absolutely fantastic! The Owner, Jean-Jaques, gave us a warm welcome. He is extremely friendly and helpful. He lives near to the house and offers different courses in Yoga, free diving, and snorkeling. If you like to go to another place or beach, you will find the next public beach in Innamorata, ca. 15 min to walk. Or you can make a see sight tour and walk to the mines, Calamita Miniere di Capoliveri. The region is a wonderful place to make mountain bike tours. We highly recommend this beautiful house to all seeking an extraordinary holiday! Thank you Jean-Jaques for the unforgettable time in your house AND we will come back in October.
