The essence of privacy and refinement
Elegance is the keynote of the interiors and exteriors of a five-star hotel which underwent large-scale renovation during winter 2007.
An exclusive Wellbeing Centre completes the amenities of Elba's only "Hôtel de Charme".
With all the charm of a historic country house, this splendid hotel stands overlooking the sea with a unique view, surrounded by magnificent long-established wooded grounds reaching down to the private beach. This oasis of peace, just 3 kilometres from the Acquabona Golf Club, offers its guests a charming restaurant in the grounds , a swimming-pool, a tennis court and a children's activities centre in verdant surroundings. The facilities on offer are completed by the brand-new Wellbeing Centre and Hair Stylist. The Villa cannot fail to delight with the elegant frescoes of the saloon, the delightful Suites and the rooms with names that evoke a glamorous past: Prestige, delle Colombe, della Contessa and De Luxe. The cottages, with new chromotherapy bathrooms, and the Hotel's Superior rooms, Suites with 50 square metre terraces and panoramic sea view, and Classic rooms, all renovated, offer exceptional comfort.
The atmosphere of enchantment is particularly strong at dusk, when the sun slowly sinks beneath the horizon to the notes of a piano whose music softens the austerity of the old colonnade.
The romantic, exclusive atmosphere helps to make this "Hôtel de Charme" a holiday paradise.
