Villa Collina is a fine example of original 1960’s architecture, combining local stonework and glass.

 

Located within the National Park of the Archipelago of Tuscany, Villa Collina is immersed within the lush woods of oak, spruce, lentisco and together with the rich perfumes and colours of the Mediterranean scrub provide an airy and cool spot, even during the hottest months of summer..



Every room boasts marvellous views over the Gulf of Biodola (one of the most spectacular of the island), the southern tip of Corsica, the island of Capraia, as well as Monte Capanne, the highest peak of Elba.

The terrace of Villa Collina, as for all the outdoor areas are comunal and therefore accessible to all our guests who will soon appreciate the exclusivity and tranquility of a place that is capable of immediately renewing the spirit.

 

Artists and art-lovers alike will feel at home here, as my wife and I are both painters.

As far as foreign guests go, I can manage quite well to speak English and French.

At your request, I can put you in contact with various groups who organize hiking trips, kayak excursions, scooter, bike, car, boat rental, daily visits to the sister islands of Pianosa, guided tours to discover the deep sub-marine fauna and flora of Elba etc.

I can also give you directions to the gallery and archive of Portoferraio and the Napoleanic museums.


The rooms all have a private entrance, spectacular sea views, and a large private terrace equipped with table, chairs, deckchairs and umbrella where you can eat, relax and sunbathe.
Each room has satellite TV, heating and air-contitioning, wireless internet, safety-deposit box, fully-equipped private bathroom with hairdryer.


The rooms each have a double bed with the possibility of adding a single bed and/or a cot.

 

Inside, for the express use of our guests, is a kitchen area where each morning from 08.00 onwards you will find a rich breakfast.

You can help yourselves to anything you wish and have the choice to enjoy your breakfast in your room or on your private terrace, overlooking the sea.

Whenever you wish, I will be available to attend to your needs in order to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, and to answer any questions you may have. .

Elba boasts a perfect ecosystem and therefore offers a rich variety of beaches, coves and coasts. Our nearest beach is Biodola with its 600m of fine golden sand, where should you wish, you can find umbrellas, deckchairs, pedalos and acquascooters for rent.

Closeby there is the smaller, more familiar beach of Scaglieri. Another sandy beach which slowly descends into the water. Bars and beach-front cafes offer brunch, aperitivos and a fine restaurant where you can taste the local cuisine.

Further along the coast is the hidden treasure of Forno. A tiny fishing cove of 120m of sand. Surrounded by rocks you will find another fine restaurant with outdoor dining to the backdrop of marvellous sunsets.


There are thousands of other things to see and do on Elba and I can provide you with brochures and maps to help you choose how best to experience the splendor of Elba.
