Characteristic apartment situated inside the star shaped fort “Forte Stella”, built in 1548 by Cosimo I de' Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany. The fort stands on a promontory overlooking the gulf of Portoferraio and within there is one of Europe's oldest lighthouses (1788).
The apartment, recently renovated, is on the first and last floor of the higher building and it consists of a bedroom with double bed and TV, a spacious living room with sofa-bed, a modern and well equipped kitchen and a bathroom with shower. Each room is air-conditioned. The washing machine is in a little utility room.
The fort is a private property and only the tenants have access to it, thus quietness and privacy are guaranteed.
Tourists with ticket are allowed to enter during scheduled time slots. In a few minutes walk you can reach both the beach Le Viste, sand and pebbles, and the center of Portoferraio, its promenade and its shops and boutiques.
The Palazzina dei Mulini, once the official residence of Napoleon and today National Museum (one of the most popular of the island), is just 200 meters away.
