The space
The ground floor of Casale opens onto a large garden surrounded by an olive grove and protected to the south by a hillside of pines. It is an open space furnished with low sofas and tables set amongst the trees, with a beautiful view of the bay and the city of Portoferraio.
The "beach"/teak wood platform (50sqm) with umbrellas, beach chairs and a jacuzzi for 5/6 people is located at the foot of the centuries-old pinewood. It is a fantastic place to finish the day.
The garden is connected to the Casale by bright and large windows.

Inside, the living room is organized with a table for 8/10 people and some sofas placed next to the bookcase and tv / hi fi corner. All books (architecture, design...) are available to all guests.
On the ground floor there is also a guest bathroom.
Through the living room, you can reach the kitchenwith an equipped island and a large common table for 8/10 persons: the convivial use combines with the virtues of a perfectly equipped professional environment. The kitchen overlooks a patio with barbecue and ready for outdoor meals. From here you can access the organic garden at guests disposal.

The first floor has 4 double rooms: 2 double and 2 with option (double or twin beds). All rooms are equipped with bathroom with shower and air conditioning. The two rooms facing the north open onto the bay; the other two are equipped with independent terraces overlooking the woods.

Each room comes with linen linen embroidered and Egyptian cotton bath linen.

Other things to note
The Casale is something more than a vacation spot: spaces, furnishings, services reflect personal experiences and the sensitivity of the owners. For this reason, guests are kindly requested to treat them with care and respect.
This includes a sensible usage of water and electricity resources, also bearing in mind the typical island ecosystem.

Guests are also kindly invited to not touch the art pieces on the shelves and on the walls. We thank you in advance and much appreciate your understanding and collaboration, so we can make sure we let the next guest after you fully enjoy this special place, just as you will!!

Small parties can be organized only to the guests of the house.

It is allowed to smoke only in the outside spaces of the Casale( garden, patio, terrasse,spa area) but it is absolutely forbidden to smoke and throw bugs into the woods.

Children can access the spa area only if accompanied by an adult.

Guests can stay at Casale with their pets, subject to express prior permission from the owner.

There are 14 steps to go up to the first floor (bedrooms) and 17 to go up to the spa area.

The villa is about 100m away from a road that connects various villages, so some traffic noise can sometimes be heard in the background, although not too bothersome. nightime is however very quiet.

I was born and bred in Lyon, France, where I lived until I was 22 years old. I then moved to Italy, where I have lived on and off for 40 years, and Thailand, my other chosen homeland for now over 30 winters.  After having spent a long period in the Northern Italian city of Bologna, I had the lucky opportunity to buy this beautiful country villa on the Elba Island with two other friends, and I ended up making it my home. We restructured it and decorated it to reflect my biggest passions and interests: the East of the World, travelling, art and interior design. I would now love to share this place and its unique vibe with travellers looking for a soothing and rejuvenating staying close to nature and to the beautiful Elba sea.
