Fantastic August holidays

  • 5 of 5

Summer holidays with my family. We love nature and sea so we decided for Elba and then for this property and place. Due to the fact that it is in full Natural Park and there are really few structures/bulidings we were told by the Owner it was the only part of the Island where quietness could be found, also in August. Well he was absolutely right. We found a lovely natural and quiet place with magnific sea and nature. No car passage, just few nighbours, lonely beaches u could reach just on foot or by boat. My family really loved to explore them. We warmly suggest La Cala beach in the morning, overall with south wind (it seems a lake, wonderful snorkeling), Ripa Barata in the afternoon (sunshine in front). Many suggestive good spots where we could fish (me and my older son are fan of fishing). We also had beautiful walkings through the paths starting from the house (it is a path crossover). The house, Casa Sant’Anna, is perfect for such kind of paceful holiday. It has lot of external private areas, we had every meal outdoor and overall we always had the sea in front of us: from bedroom’s windows (opening shutters in the morning and find the sea was great) from the terrace and everywhere we moved. Inside the house is good featured, well equipped (overall kitchen) and we found it perfectly cleaned. Nothing to complain, everything working. Suggestion: make drinkable water at free Fonte Napoleone (between Marciana and Poggio) it is a really good and healty water. Finally we had a great family holiday: my sons enjoyed freedom, my wife was tanned and I fished enough. Everybody satisfied.

Sea and silence, wonderful outdoor living

  • 5 of 5

Wondering how I could better describe this property and its location, my testimony maybe add value but nothing new to previous Reviews. I just can say that everything I read was true and me and my family had fantastic summer holidays. Anyone looking for a peaceful and still uncorrupted natural spot would be delighted by this place, by its calmness and silence. We really much enjoyed to follow the ancient paths crossing the area and discover lonely beaches, savage coast bites or just the campaign and woods around.

Every day was full of discoveries: me, my wife, our 2 sons and overall our dog (they all 3 could wander in the area alone with no danger) really appreciated the variety of places and landscapes. In 2 weeks stay we used our car just for shopping and for a couple of dinners.

Despite the beautiful place such high pleasure would not have been not be possible without an equally high level accomodation. Casa Sant’Anna is a perfect compromise between comfort and ease: a good and fully equipped kitchen (we appreciated new staffs, coffee machine and toaster for our breakfasts) a beautiful seaview terrace with a large stone barbecue table, benches and sun-beds. Even if the internal dining area was comfortable and attractive we had all our meals outdoor, no one was left (magnific weather helped on this), looking at the sea and sunshines on it, just in front. We had barbecue with real scented wood, kindly supplied by the Owner (for free). House’s features and furnitures are not de luxe but really good anyway and overall comfortable.

What we much appreciated were “cotto” floors and the enchanting sea view from bedroom’s windows. My family final liking (dog included) was the highest I could hope and this is what really let me happy. We will definitely come back to this magnificent place.

Highly recommended.

Delighted

  • 5 of 5

We were 5, me my wife and our 3 childs. It was our third time in Elba but we didn’t know this part of the Island. As the Owner said us it is the most natural, still incorrupted place of the Island, quiet and paceful, in August too. We found what we looked for, a paceful and natural place for our family holidays. We loved to walk through the forests surrounding our accomodation and discover small beautiful and lonely beaches as La Cala, Fontine, Ripa Barato. I personally am a fisher as my older child too (he is 15 now) and loved to find uncorrupted sites where we had great fishing. Our childs were free to go everywhere alone (except our too young daughter Caroline) and really appreciated it (we did too!). No car passage, no risks. We stayed in the second house of Andrea (the Owner), named La Scuola (The School) as in the 50’s, when there was no roads (just paths) it was used as elementary schoool for the few childs (5-6 I guess) living there. It is a really nice house, perfectly appointed and fully equipped, absolutely correspondent. The living is comfortable but a bit small for 5 but we always used the beautiful seaview roofed terrace in front to have all our meals on a nice marble table. Overall by night it was agreable and comfortable (just in front means it was easy to cook inside and have meals outside). The seaview is great, a bit covered on the left by an old lower (the place is on a light hillside) and uninhabited house roof but it is great anyway. Seaview also form the kitchen and living window and everywhere you move we had a great lookout over the beautiful sea in front. We also had a nice barbecue where we grilled meat and fish. Also a nice external shower really appreciated when back by our explorations. We parked our car just 2 meters from the entrance, lateral side, really comfortable. Our childs loved to sleep all toghether on the mezzanine under the roof and we loved the nice main double bedroom with comfortable bed. Kitchen is fully equipped also with microwaves, coffee machine and good cooking staffs. During our explorations we had the chance to see lot of wild animals as muflons, wild porks, martens, incredible butterflies, hawks, a woodpaker and an hoopoo just behind the house. Snorkeling was incredible too, everywere but at La Cala was the top. Our childs Our childs were delighted, my wife was satisfied and so I was. Deifinitely recommended to all nature sport and quietness lovers.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Family of 4, wonderful 2 weeks stay in July.

After a quick and pleasant deal with the Owner (Andrea) we booked this property.

Due to excelent reviews our expectation on the house and place was really high.

Well, I must say it was even exceeded (not easy at all).

Everything we read about this property and the place was absolutely true.

Also the advert was absolutely corresponding to what we found.

The house itself was perfect: spacious, perfectly cleaned, fully equipped (we also found, and really appreciated microwaves, american coffee maker, new cookware set, etc...).

It is on 2 floors, living and kitchen on the first, sleeping on the second: what was really unexpected was the magnificent seaview from both bedroom’s windows.

We really loved to wake up in the morning with just birds singing, open the shutters and find a great blue sea in front of us. My wife and my sons were absolutely delighted by this.

As well as having our meals on the large lateral (private) terrace, intensely using the comfortable stone barbecue with real wood (kindly supplied by the Owner with no additional costs!), looking at the sunshien just on the sea in front of us.

Everything about this property and place has already been written by previous reviews, I just can confirm that everything is absolutely corresponding to what we found, even better.

House is fantastic place is magnific (natural, quiet, beautiful).

Other tip: when we arrived we found a bottle of fresh water as well as a bottle of really good white sparkling real Italian wine in the fridge (the Owner told us he owns a small family-run winery in Trevise area). We were told it was a welcome gift and we used it to toast to our beautiful holiday beginning.

Just perfect

Fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5

The listing is 100% accurate and we had a fantastic experience.

The location is charming, quiet, fully natural (in fact it is a Natural Park area).

The house is at the end of a small no exit road in a place called La Conca, beautiful.

We have been woke up by birds every morning of our 2 weeks stay.

The house is comfortable, tastefully decorated and clean.

It has 2 large private terraces. The most useful is the lateral one with half

roof, table and benches (every meal there), stone barbecue, solarium

and a stunning view over the sea (we saw Capraia Island and the sunshine

was in the sea in front).

The beach behind the house is called La Cala and it was really beautiful.

It is a pebble beach (we took some of its stones home as they were better than a decoration)

with a unique underwater, really few people we could also stay with our dog.

Our childs (12 and 8 yo) went to the beach alone every morning, no danger, then we arrived

with the right calmness.

They discovered pleasure of indipendence with no risks

It has been the most natural and educational holidays they had ever.

Thanks to Andrea, kind and helpful Owner that allowed us a such fantastic experience.

Perfect house amazing place

  • 5 of 5

Three times in Elba. The first 2 times we did not find good quality hause accomodations, the average standard in the Island is quiet low. The past summer we found this property and we immediately rented.

We have been absolutely satisfied by the house: good quality, well featured and well appointed, good size.

It is on 2 floors, down living area up night area: really appreciated because we get our childs sleeping and by night we could anyway watch tv or just chat with no worries to disturb them.

We had all our meals outdoor on the table in the lateral terrace most of time cooking barbecue

(real wood offered by the Owner) overall fish but also meat (Pomonte grocery warmly suggested).

Finally the hause is fantastic, completely new and modern kitchen (we used a lot the electric oven

and microwaves grill), fully equipped, new pots, large external terraces see view from every window and terrace.

Well, what about the place: we have been surprised even more than for the hause.

Yes we know it is Natural park and the sea is beautiful, but we didn’t expect such a charming and

natural place. Overall so quiet (no car passage, no roads just birds) and relaxing.

We did not touch the car for 2 weeks, just for shopping.

Early morning I went walking through Sentiero dei Profumi, beautiful.

Then all the family went at La Cala, a magnificent natural quiet beach, still savage for the all day.

It is in the coast under the house, 10 minutes or less.

We could leave our staff there (in the Owner hutte) and find it the day after because it can be reached just by boat or on foot so no people can steal our poor staffs.

Snorkeling is the best because the underwater in La Cala is magnificent (there is a small torrent floading in). I also got fishing (wow) and biking (hard but stunning)

Finally the house is magnific, the place is too.

Warmly suggested to people looking for relaxing, comfortable, sportish holidays.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Elba Island Airport at 20 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Portoferraio at 25 Kilometres Nearest Train : Piombino at 25 Kilometres Nearest Beach : at 300 Metres Car: recommended

On the coast between Marciana Marina and S. Andrea, 100m over the front sea (magnificent lookout), mountains and forests behind, in a peaceful and bucolic context. Under the villa (10 minutes walk) is a well known only on foot (or boat) accessible beach. Many other beautiful beaches can be reached starting from the villa with a nice walking through the typical Mediterranean vegetation.

The location is also the ideal starting point for the superb trekking you can practice trough forests valley and mountains behind the house and for visiting old medieval villages of the area as Marciana, Poggio, St.Pietro and St.Ilario.

Marciana Marina (15 min. by car) is a well known dressy small village, with its enchanting seaport and charming old village part.
