Where you’ll be

Portoferraio, Toscana, Italy

The island of Elba Elba lies in the Tyrrhenian Sea at about 45min from the Tuscan coast by ferry, located about 110km west of Pisa and 160km west of Florence.
The villa is located in San Giovanni, a few kilometres away from the island’s capital Portoferraio, where mainland ferries land.
 A 100m rural road connects the villa to the main road, which leads to Porto Azzurro (12km), Capoliveri (14km), Marina di Campo (14km), Marciana Marina (16km).
The island’s La Pila airport is also only 10km away. Flights from/to Pisa, Florence, Milan Linate, Bologna e Swizzerland/Lugano operated by Silver Air.

Sports: for sport lovers, the house is walking distance from: a rental boat and inflatable motorboats company, an active diving centre, a sailing school, a stadium with running tracks, three tennis courts, two Padel courts, a fitness trail within San Giovanni’s thermal area, and, a little 4km further away, the Elba nine-hole golf club.

Restaurants: the house is walking distance from two traditional “trattorie” (Italian-style small restaurants) located in San Giovanni. In one of these it is possible to order freshly prepared meals.

Grocery&co: Elba’s supermarkets are open seven days a week. The closest to the house is in Carpani, which is at a three-minute drive from the house, while a smaller shop is only one minute away.

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.
