The Tonnara di Bagno, on the splendid island of Elba, is an historic converted Tuna Fishery dating 1840. It is 2 km from the famous harbour town of Marciana Marina and 3 km from the fabulous sandy Procchio beach. Converted into just 3 apartments of which two have same owner, the one offered is the second largest (110 sq meters plus 65 sq m. of terraces and sundecks). The Tonnara sits on a small rocky promontory, just 8 meters above the sea, and is flanked by two beaches, one pebbles, one rocky, renowned for the incredible transparency of the water. The Tonnara is surrounded by a private park which includes an old Fisherman's Chapel. This stunning apartment has just been totally renovated with new kitchen and bathrooms and a brand new private sunbathing terrace facing the east beach. This spectacular property of 3 bedrooms and two baths, full kitchen and large living room, all with spectacular views, is comfortably heated for year round enjoyment.
Tonnara privacy is shere magic: The Tonnara di Bagno assures wonderful privacy in the villa and on the beach. The west beach is never overly crowded, even in the highest seasons and the guests have their own beach accesses and sunning terraces, all literally a few feet from the water, allowing guests to spend their holidays in the truest sense of exclusive privacy - which becomes magic in the late evenings when you will spend looking out on the fantastic view of the Procchio Gulf, alone or entertaining your guests.
Shopping & Dining: Marciana Marina, only 2 km away, is one of the most charming and quietly exclusive harbour and fishing towns in Elba. Its Lungomare walkway is lined with boutiques and charming specialty stores. Fresh fish can be bought directly from the fishermen from the peer at about 11:00 am every morning. If you like to ride a bike the ride into town is quite easy with only one short climb right out of the town (but do look out for cars, the island roads are rather narrow--we recommend you escort small children at all times on the provincial road...once in town you can safely give them the run of the place as most of the town is closed to traffic in summer evenings).
In the apartment you will find information on the local restaurants.
On the Capanna Mountain are two of the most splendid little hill towns in Italy, just 10 minutes from Marciana Marina, Marciana Alta and Poggio.
Private parking and easy access from road: The Tonnara has private parking for up to seven cars; two places (one large one compact car) are reserved for this apartment. Unlike many seaside Elba houses, the Tonnara di Bagno is quite close to where you will leave your car, about 35 ft, only about 20 steps.
