About Alfredo De Flora

Architect, aged 44, based in Genova and who has lived abroad (Spain and UK) for a while. I really love my family Villa that was bought in 1810 by my ancestor Salvatore, a doctor from Florence, who enjoyed the island and who started to produce wine that was transported by sailing boat to Genoa . As an architect, I took care in the last years of the renovation of the whole house, including the garden, with full respect of its history, architecture and materials. I did a conservative refurbishment using traditional local materials and increasing the already high living standrards of the house. I travel a lot for business and Villa Bacci is for me a paradise place where to rest from stress and work and where to relax and enjoy with family or friends in front of unique views of the seaside and countryside.

Alfredo De Flora purchased this villa in 1810

Why Alfredo De Flora chose Province of Livorno

Because it is unique. It is a Tuscan Architectural Heritage Villa, one of the oldest building in Porto Azzurro and it is in a superb location, in the typical Tuscan countryside, just a few minutes away from the best beaches of Elba island. And moreover it has a private vineyard where a great and tasty white wine is produced. All guests have always been very happy about Villa Bacci and this makes me feel well. Very reccomended for families, group of friends and people who likes outdoor life and sports (jogging, cycling, etc). The house is conveniently located by the GTE (Grande Treversata Elbana), a spectacular footpath that crosses the whole island. Is worth trying a part of it, believe me.

What makes this villa unique

Sightseeing, quiteness, unlimited WI Fi connection, charming eniviroment, private vineyard with tasty wine....and much more that you have to discover

Magic place

  • 5 of 5

A unique place very well furnished and with amazing view on the bay. We enjoyed very much our holiday and Villa Bacci was the right place where to stay. Communication with the owner was excellent. Recommended even out of peak time. We will definitely come back.

Perfect place for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

After having spent a family holiday in this property around Easter last year, we decided to come back in early October this year, and we didn´t regret it for a single second. Elba is a wonderful location for a relaxed late summer holiday, and this house is no less than simply ideal. It´s spacious, charming, well-maintained, tastefully decorated, and it offers stunning scenic views over hills, coasts and the pretty little harbour town Porto Azzurro. Communication with Alfredo, the owner, was nice and easy. We thoroughly enjoyed our second stay there, and we definitely look forward to the third one!

La Dolce Vita im schönsten Haus der Welt!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zu zehnt in der Villa Bacci: Zwei Familien mit allen erwachsenen Kindern "Familienferien wie vor 15 Jahren". Wir hatten eine traumhafte Woche was nicht zu letzt an der unglaublichen Unterkunft lag! Das Haus ist wie aus einem romantischen Film entsprungen, atemberaubende Aussicht über das Meer, rote Mondaufgänge, Pinienduft und Vogelgezwitscher inklusive. Die liebevollen Details im Haus zusammen mit der hervorragenden Ausstattung (wundervolle Bäder zum Beispiel) machen die Villa Bacci zu einem zweiten Zuhause für eine grosse Schar Menschen. Wir wären am liebsten für immer geblieben!

Fantastische Villa und Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind im März in Villa Bacci gewesen. Die Insel Elba kennen wir gut, da wir bereits seit 7 Jahren dorthin fahren, jedoch war es nun erstmalig zur Frühjahrszeit. Es war eine sehr schöne Erfahrung, und wir haben Elba anders erlebt, mit tollen Spaziergängen auf den Bergen und in die schönen Dörfer. Villa Bacci liegt an einem wichtigen Spazierweg, die vom Parco Toscano empfohlen werden und dies war eindeutig von Vorteil für uns leidenschaftliche Spaziergänger. Villa Bacci ist ein wahrhaftiges Paradis, sowohl aufgrund seiner Eigenschaften eines historischen, gelungen renoviertes Hauses, die antike Einrichtung und die Lage, sondern auch für den wunderschönen Garten mit Blick auf die Dörfer Portoazzurro und Capoliveri. Zwei von sechs Zimmern sind mit Waermepumpen geheizt, aber wir haben nicht gefroren. Wir hatten Glück mit dem Wetter und konnten sogar im Garten grillen ( kleiner Tipp, kauft das Fleisch beim Metzger Paolo in Porto Azzurro, das ist etwas Besonderes). Wir sind froh, diesen Urlaub kurzfristig organisiert haben zu können weil er unsere Erwartungen sehr übertroffen hat. Unsere Gruppe, die aus 2 Familien bestand, hat sowohl das Haus als auch Elba in der niedrigen Saison sehr zu schätzten gewusst. Sicherlich werden wir nach Elba zurückkehren, vielleicht im Mai, wenn die Tage länger und wärmer werden und das Baden möglich ist Villa Bacci ist ebenfalls sehr zu empfehlen für die Kommunikation auf Englisch mit dem Inhaber, der immer schnell antwortet und für Tipps oder Informationen zur Insel verfügbar ist.

Car: recommended

Villa Bacci sits on top of Monte Castello hill, in the south-east coast of the Isle of Elba, in a typical Tuscan countryside environment, facing the crystal waters of Porto Azzurro and the romantic village of Capoliveri. It is nicely isolated from the village but it only takes 5 minutes to reach the beaches and all the major tourist attractions (restaurants, pubs, boat rentals, etc). Nearby it is possible to practice many outdoor sports as horse riding, bird watching, mountain biking, walking, windsurfing, sailing and snorkelling.

From the garden you can see Porto Azzurro on your left, Capoliveri on your right, southbound (on top of the hill) and when weather is particularly nice you can see the Island of Pianosa (where I strongly reccomend you to go), Giglio and Montecristo.

From the house you can take nice walks in the countryside. If you follow (on walk, I suggest not to use the car) the dirt road from the Villa Bacci main gate (with the Villa Bacci logo on) you can reach in approximately 1h the top of the Monte Castello and Monte della croce top from where you can enjoy fantastic views. The Villa is located by one of the famous Great Elban Paths GTE, that are nice tracks that connect many areas of the island by walk or bike (only MTB) and from where you can reach really nice places and enjoy spectacular views. Do not miss Castello del Volterraio or the Monserrato Monastery
