This four bedroom, three full bathroom rustic house sleeps nine and is located on the westernmost point of Elba. This simple, unadorned hideaway is situated in one of the wildest and more undeveloped areas of the island, in a locale known as Campo Lo Feno -- between the charming medieval village of Marciana and the larger bustling town of Marina di Campo, full of nightlife.
Eat caprese and drink the local wine "Aleatico" al fresco at the granite table with a dramatic view of the Mediterranean, Corsica and the island of Capraia. Dinner is especially beautiful as the sunsets are truly breathtaking and are different every evening.
Mediterranean pine, rosemary, and oleander surround and shade the house. Because there is no Wi-Fi service or cell phone reception at the house (though it can be had at local establishments a few minutes away in Chiessi), the Pink House is truly a place for those who wish to unplug, unwind, and reconnect to a simpler and less stressful way of life.
The house has two bedrooms upstairs with air conditioning in each room, and two downstairs. There are very large custom closets with built in dressers in each room. There are three bathrooms, one upstairs and two downstairs—one with a washing machine, and the other accessible from outside of the house, great for a shower after being at the beach all day!
The main living room has a wood burning stove, and doubles as the dining room and kitchen. But as the weather is always wonderful in Spring and Summer, most time is spent outside overlooking the sea.
Two picturesque villages, Chiessi and Colle d'Orano (both 5 minutes away by car), have rock cliff beaches and there are many sand and rock beaches all around the island.
About us: Our family has been going to the house every July and/or August since 1975 and truly wish we could visit more often. We've shared our home for many years with friends and through word-of-mouth but now feel that more people should enjoy this exquisite place that has meant everything to us for four generations.
