Overview

About the property

central area with all the services and activities within a radius of 100 meters

In the heart of the Tuscan archipelago, where a splendid sea blends with a distinctly Mediterranean landscape, there is an island that the Emperor of France Napoleon Bonaparte during his exile, called 'seductive and active'. It's called Isola D'Elba.

On this jewel of nature, located in the southeast, in a lovely bay protected from the wind, is the quaint seaside village of Porto Azzurro, where time seems to stand still that distant day when the Spanish admiral D'Alarcon landed in the seventeenth century.

As soon as you arrive in Porto Azzurro we realize to be in the right place: housing characteristics of different color from each other, the lush vegetation surrounding the village from all sides, beaches lapped by crystal clear waters, the marina, small boats with fishing lights The square on the sea, the charming alleys, the pace of life slow and quiet. Scenarios that seem to come from a painting by the Macchiaioli school.

It is here, in the most characteristic and flowery alley "Porto Longone" (that was formerly the village) to fifty meters from the sea and the foot of the Spanish fort that is the Holiday House 'Commander' ... .a small cozy house surrounded by colorful bougainvillea and geraniums.

The house, which has characteristics typical of local buildings, was completely renovated in 2002, without altering the nature of the time of construction. And it is also why offers guests who stays there the pleasure and the suggestion of a time long past: stone structure mixed with bricks, roof tiles and roof tiles from Tuscany, wooden window frames and flooring strips Larch retrieved from a old sailing ship. Looking up at the ceiling, wooden beams and rafters joined old terracotta bricks ... complete the work.

The building, with a total area of ​​about thirty square meters, is well developed: an area that also serves as an entrance overlooking the quaint and colorful alley "Montebello" hosts two convenient fold-away beds. From here access to another large space in which is available a fully equipped kitchenette with stove with four burners of the latest generation with extractor hood, fridge, freezer and double sink with mixer. A closet bridge with six doors and a double bed accompanying the local overlooking via "Solferino" and part of the marina. The rooms are separated by a wooden sliding door practice. In short ... a "open space" really enjoyable.

The bathroom, complete with every service and large window, comes with a large stone shower stall.

Outside a comfortable terrace (not in use) paved in terracotta where there is a small table with chairs where you can have lunch or dinner in a particularly scenic spot.

The property is fully furnished and equipped with all kinds of tools for the kitchen, as well as a flat-screen TV with LED technology.

Small pets are accepted, provided polite and respectful of other people's things.

The house has accommodation for up to three people.

The nearest beach called 'Pianotta' is 50 m from the house. And 'pebbles and though located practically in the country, the water is crystal clear that the laps. And 'suitable for children and people with poor acquaticità because slopes gently toward the deepest area. Bordered by beautiful bays where you can enjoy the clear waters of Elba. Other beaches such as 'Barbarossa' and 'Royal' are at distances from the house ranging from 400 to 600 m.

A boat equipped, a short walk from the house, making a daily accompaniment in the coves and the most beautiful beaches of the island as well as organized trips to fascinating islands of the Tuscan Archipelago as Giglio, Montecristo, Pianosa, Capraia and Giannutri.

Carinissimo appartamento in pieno centro, a pochi passi da incantevoli calette con splendido mare. Tutto come promesso, pulito e in ordine. Ottima vacanza, ringrazio Fabrizio per aver contribuito a renderla tale grazie alla sua incantevole casetta ed alla sua sempre cortese disponibilità.

Spero di avere la possibilità di poterci tornare.

Carinissima...

  • 5 of 5

Carina, comoda e soprattutto caratteristica con il pavimento ed il soffitto legno...sembra di essere veramente in barca !! Molto pratica ed utile anche la parte esterna con spettacolari colori e la suggestiva terrazzina...veramente rilassante.

La casa è stata consegnata in ordine, pulita e completa di ogni accessorio.

Il proprietario è stato molto disponibile e cordiale.

Porto Azzurro è un posto veramente incantevole…un acqua splendida ed un paesino unico…ottima vacanza molto divertente.

Ottima per giovani !!

PAS TERRIBLE

  • 2 of 5

Certes, la location est typique mais beaucoup de choses ne sont pas satisfaisantes.

Elle est située au dessus d'un bar ouvert jusqu'à 4H-5H du matin. Très difficile de dormir dans ces conditions. Il faudrait signaler que la location n'est pas adaptée aux personnes ayant des difficultés : plusieurs marches pour y accéder et pas de parking pour le véhicule que l'on doit garer à 300 m (tout est en pente).

L'intérieur : une catastrophe. La cuisine : cafetière inutilisable (un comble pour l'Italie), pas de micro onde, pas de tire bouchon, ... et j'en passe

Seul point positif : la literie est bonne.

La salle de bain : impossible de poser sa trousse ou autre. Rien n'a été prévu.

La soi disant terrasse que l'on doit partager avec d'autres personnes. Toute petite et elle est encombrée d'un tas d'objets et n'a jamais été entretenue.

C'est bien la première fois que nous sommes autant déçus par une location.

A Pise, nous nous étions arrêtés dans un camping (bungalow). A côté, c'était royal.

Pour conclure, nous ne donnerons pas l'adresse à nos amis.

Owner's Response: …“ hôtes âgées ayant des difficulties”… Je remercie Les hôtes pour leur recension. Je loue ma maison qui se trouve a L’Ile d’Elbe depuis plus de 15 ans. Mes hôtes, entre lesquels beaucoup de Francais, ont apprecié toujours cette jolie demeure située à quelques metres de la mer. Ma maison, est douèe de tous accessoires pour la cuisine compris le "tir - bouchon" et de “cafetiere” et une “console” dans la toilette. L'espace extérieur permet aux hôtes de déjeuner enveloppés des bougainvillées bien colorées dans une complète tranquillitè et sérenité….sans pas de problem. Porto Azzurro est le bourg plus caractéristique de cette L’Ile d’Elbe, plein d'une vie gaieté et de beaucoup de jeunes gens. Malheureusement ce contexte, que les deux hôtes âgées (avec leurs nombreux problémes) n'ont pas agréé ont transformé ainsi leurs vacances en una "terrible catastrophe"… Je regrette cela pour eux cependant je suis heureuse pour ceux qui ont demeuré ici et qui continueront encore à sèjourner avec plaisir dans la maison du "COMMANDANT"...

Dimora veramente suggestiva

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo trascorso una piacevolissima vacanza. Una dimora veramente suggestiva inserita in un tipico contesto mediterraneo. Molto carina ristrutturata con gusto. Una comoda terrazza dove si può pranzare e cenare con tanti fiori colorati. Comodissima, vicino a tutto, facilmente raggiungibile. Abbiamo trovato la casa pulita ed in ordine. Proprietario disponibilissimo e sempre raggiungibile.

Porto Azzurro.....un posto incantenvole. Mare limpidissimo e un borgo marinaro unico !! Ritorneremo presto.....
