Island Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week in this lovely apartment at the far north west of Elba. Sebastiano and Lorenzo very helpful with SMS and emails so everything went smoothly. We loved sitting on the terrace enjoying the fabulous view, watching the swallows. The property has a sturdy, well-built feel.

Here are a couple of points which others might find helpful.

- it is quite remote; there is a (superb!) restaurant on the main road where we ate most nights, and a lovely little bar on the beach at Patresi but the nearest shop is 30 mins on foot, in Zanca. We wanted to avoid the hassle of car hire and depended on the bus network, which might not have been such a clever move. The larger towns are an hour away by bus, and no quicker by car because the roads are scary zig-zags with vertiginous drops into the sea!

- there's no air conditioning, and it was blisteringly hot when we came, unusually so for June, we were told.

- the flat is a little sparse. You expect ot provide your own food, of course, but most places we've stayed have things like salt, pepper, washing-up liquid. Some tourist info would also be good, a few maps, some history of the island etc etc. There is Wifi and satellite, but I haven't seen a TV like that since I was a student! But you don't come to Elba to watch telly.

Owner's Response: Sono molto contento che, sia la casa che la sua posizione tranquilla vi abbiano fatto trascorrere una buona vacanza. Patresi è un piccolo borgo per chi vuole fare una vacanza all'insegna del relax tra l'azzurro del mare e il verde della montagna. Sicuramente avere un mezzo è consigliato ma si può viaggiare molto bene anche con i mezzi pubblici.

Sebastiano fue un buen guia nos indico los lugares para visitar , El apartamento es muy acogedor tiene una vista increible bueno para romance y para personas q le gusta la tranquilidad .

Psd: antes de subir a Mariana en el puerto consigue todos tus alimentos ya q esta lejos el supermercado. Nuestro apartamento no tuvo lavadora.

Owner's Response: Ringrazio Raymond e Mariana per avere scelto la nostra casa. E' stato un piacere conoscerli e parlare con loro. Mi scuso per essermi scordato di dirgli dove è la lavatrice, la casa ha accanto una piccola lavanderia. Spero di ospitarli ancora magari per una vacanza più lunga.

Car: recommended

On Piombino harbour you can find Moby Lines or Toremar sea connections.Comfortable ferry - boats leave Piombino every hour and around 55 minutes after you land on Elba Island.

We advice you to book the place for car and passengers in advance if you travel on summer (from June to September).How to reach Patresi: Starting from the harbour of Portoferraio and following the directions to Procchio, you have to drive till Marciana Marina first. Six kilometres after you are in Marciana Alta from where you continue till Zanca first and Patresi then. In Patresi you turn your right at the Pizzeria Il Faro and 50 mt after, following the direction to the sea, you enter a parking on your left.

The parking is situated along the street.
