4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with on top of a green valley
Tre Acque is a charming in country house, nestled in the hills with a large terrace in front with view over the green valley of 'Tre acque'. The house is surrounded by pine trees and Mediterranean bush, the typical Tuscany canopy. It is a point of departure to reach some of the most beautiful beaches of Elba as Biodola, Scaglieri, Forno, Campo all'Aja, Procchio, Magazzini, Capo Bianco, from 1 km up. From the house with a little longer drive you can reach many other beautiful beaches either natural or equipped with beach clubs, restaurants nearby the sea, as Fetovaia, Capo S.Andrea... where the nature changes and becomes very sunny and dry. It can be amusing to change beach every day. You may ramble on foot trough the many beautiful path, some of them run into roman ruins, sail or kayaking in the Gulf of Procchio and in the various beautiful beaches of the islands. You can also do a day trip with special ferryboat to visit the other wild and interesting islands of the group: Pianosa, Capraia, Montecristo. The cultural life is very alive in the island: concert in the magic village of Campolofeno, litterary and journalism prizes in Marciana and other villages. You can also visit the emperor Napoleon's exile homes in San Martino, close to the house, and in Portoferraio. In summertime every sunday there are feasts in the villages with markets and typical tuscany food.
Portoferraio, Marina di Campo and Porto Azzurro are lovely for snacks, restaurants and shopping.
The closest supermarket with free parking is in the small village of Carpani, 5 minutes drive or 15 minutes walk.
The terrace has a large dining table with benches and barbecue, protected by a roofing. In a corner there is an outdoor shower to refresh coming from the beach.
All the rooms are accessible from the terrace. The house is composed by a main building, which comprehends: an eat in kitchen, living room with radio, tv, DVD player, launderette with washing machine at the ground floor, a master double bedroom, big bathroom with bath tub, a two beds bedroom, one of this is a little shorter( 10 years old child) ; a separate building with a three beds bedroom, a bathroom with shower, a small entrance with a closet; a small separated extension with a double room, that uses the bathroom with shower just nearby.
There are 2 cots and 1 high chair for babies.

Beautiful Island with beautiful beaches
We had a wonderful and very relaxing stay at Elba Island. The place is very quiet and away from everything and that's what we were looking for. Obviously one needs a car as the next village Portoferraio, a nice ancient harbour where you could shop everything, is 8 km away. By car we love to have a trip around the Island to discover beautiful beach, every day different. But the nearest, Biodola, is one of the best in the world: I suggest to wait sunset there, it’s beautiful.
Location da favola
Abbiamo soggiornato presso questa meraviglia ai primi di settembre.
Abbiamo scelto questa casa perché ci sembrava perfetta per passare la nostra vacanza di famiglia (eravamo 7 adulti e 3 bambini)e cosi è stato.
La casa è veramente meravigliosa; si arriva,si parcheggia la macchina,e ci si rilassa all'aria aperta.
Nonostante sia in una zona tranquilla da ogni caos cittadino,in pochi minuti si possono raggiungere spiagge,negozi,ristoranti,tutto quello di qui si puo aver bisogno.
Abbiamo passato veramente un bella vacanza,mangiando all'aria aperta,passeggiando tra gli alberi e rilassandoci lonati dallo stres cittadino.
In conclusione,consiglio vivamente questa location a chi vuole passare le proprie vacanze nell'assoluto relax,in una zona molto tranquilla ma non per questo troppo lontana dalla civiltà.
Charming & relaxed hollidays
We (2 families) spend wonderful 2 weeks on Elba with perfect weather, very nice and different beaches and food. It's a nice and quiet house a bit offside of the turism, which we liked. We found a clean and nearly fully equipped house and friendly "caretakers". The big and terrace is wonderful, the trees around gives you shaddow as much as you like. The only thing we missed, was something against the mosquitos (maybe some more safty guards for the windows could help). I'm pretty shure, we will come back and enjoy again!
Our Tip: if you don't like crowded beaches try out one of the 150 beaches (often a bit hidden) around Elba, which you can find on "beach maps" sold there.
Una affascinante casa colonica all'Elba
La casa si trova in un contesto ambientale suggestivo: è immersa nella macchia mediterranea: quindi tanti profumi e visite inaspettate (è persino arrivato trovarci un rospetto per la gioia dei nostri bambini). Abbiamo trovato la casa pulitissima e dotata di ogni comfort, letti comodi e cucina molto ben attrezzata, anche con la lavastoviglie. Spazi esterni godibilissimi e ampi, con la possibilità di mangiare sempre all'aperto. Casa sempre fresca, anche nei giorni più caldi. La posizione della casa consente di raggiungere comodamente tutte le spiagge di Portoferraio, di Procchio e, con qualche minuto in più di macchina, di Marciana. Ultima cosa, una ricca biblioteca di classici e non solo per leggere nei momenti di relax, che ci ha consentito di percepire la storia di chi, prima di noi, ha abitato questa casa. Insomma una vacanza perfetta.
Proprietaria squisita e molto più che disponibile, il personale che ci ha accolto è stato a dir poco fantastico! Si tratta di un vero e proprio casale toscano, di una bellezza unica, situata in una zona tranquilla e riservata e dotata di ogni comfort! Insomma non potevamo capitare in una casa migliore di questa: superiore a qualunque aspettativa. Le foto non rendono giustizia a questo luogo incantevole e a questa casa meravigliosa!!! Grazie Maria Adele e ai ragazzi che ci hanno accolto!
From the Owner
“The country house "Tre acque" belongs to my family since forty years. When I was younger I spent there there holidays with my aunt and uncle and then with friends, some of them coming to Elba sailing. Once I went back from Elba to Portofino sailing. Then I spent there fantastic holidays with my family and friends with sons and daughters. The house is very quiet, plunged in the mediterranean bush but nearby there are villages with cafes and restaurants and the joyful crowd of summer evenings.”
