Overview

About the property

The House of Beppe and Lia is located 800 metrs from the village of Procchio and less than two hundred meters from its beach and from that one of Spartaia: it is on a spit of rock that divides the two gulfs. The white sandy beaches gradually descend into the depths of the water, making them ideal for children and for those who have no experience with the sea. For those who are rather fond of the rocks, at the ends of the two beaches there are comfortable rocks that allow diving but also a smooth entry into the sea. The rocky and sandy bottoms offer a unique opportunity to diving enthusiasts.

The apartment 'consists of two bedrooms, one twin and one double bed, a small bathroom (small, but fully equipped with: toilet, sink, bidet, small bath with shower, window.), A living room with kitchenette (electric oven with four gas burners, refrigerator with freezer, cabinets containers, dishes and utensils) with sofa bed and a spacious terrace overlooking the two gulfs ideal setting for breakfast and meals. It is 'on the first floor of a two-family house and to access it you need to make a dozen steps (it is not suitable for the handicapped). Is not equipped with a dishwasher, and washing machine is not inside the apartment but in a bathroom attached to the apartment below. Parking is under the apartment.

The house was the artist Beppe Lieto and his wife Lia Pottjewyd, Dutch physician of the village of Procchio. Originally (up to 60 years ago) was a barn for donkeys they have slowly expanded and modified. All the furniture were gifts from friends and acquaintances and the set is not always smooth but certainly original. From every window you can see the sea and the garden around the house is the result of the work of Lia loving and patient over the years

Eccezionale

  • 5 of 5

Il fascino di questa casa ci ha veramente emozionato. Ogni giorno scoprivamo qualcosa di suggestivo: i disegni incisi nell’intonaco del soffitto; La vista dalle finestre che , alternandosi agli ottimi quadri esposti alle pareti, tentavano di eguagliarne la bellezza; Il sole che il pomeriggio, attraversando i vetri colorati sulle scale, proiettava immagini astratte sulle mura interne. Per non parlare della luce naturale presente negli ambienti e le albe ed i tramonti visti dal terrazzo.

E’ una casa con il sapore del tempo e piena ancora del carattere dei suoi artefici, l’eccezionale pittore e scultore Beppe Lieto (chiedete alla proprietaria un suo catalogo) e la moglie olandese Lia Pottjewyd, allora medico del paese. La costruirono sopra ad una stalla con soluzioni architettoniche ed arredamento di fortuna ma resi suggestivi come solo gli artisti sanno fare. E’ quindi un ottimo esempio di come una casa fatta in economia possa comunque essere bellissima, accogliente e funzionale.

Le camere sono piccole ma comode e fresche, la sala con angolo cottura è invece ampia ed ottimamente attrezzata, molto piccolo ma ottimamente organizzato il bagno, il terrazzo è più grande di quanto appare in foto (ci abbiamo cenato in dieci). Il posto auto purtroppo non è coperto. La pulizia è impeccabile e tutto l’appartamento è ben curato.

Ottima anche la posizione: il paese è raggiungibile anche a piedi ma alla giusta distanza per evitarne il caos. Le due spiagge di Procchio e di Sparaia sono veramente vicinissime: due minuti di camminata e sei già con i piedi nell’acqua.

La proprietaria Fiamma è gentile e sempre disponibile (vive al piano inferiore) e ci ha fatti sentire subito a casa.

Ultimo, ma non per importanza, l’ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo!

Cosa potevamo chiedere di più?

Ciao Fiamma, ci rivedremo la prossima estate

Map

Car: recommended

To reach the Island of Elba you need to take the ferry from Piombino Marittima, location easily accessible by car, train or bus, where in summer four shipping companies (Toremar, Moby Lines, Blu Navy and Corsica-Sardinia Ferries) have comfortable ships during the summer perform numerous hourly at Portoferraio, Rio Marina and Cavo.

Alternatively, taking the plane from some European cities, you will have the convenience of arriving directly from Elba Airport Marina di Campo.

Through the House of Beppe and Lia is also possible to arrange transfers to and from Pisa / Florence / Rome or inside the 'island itself.

PROCCHIO

A beautiful village in the north of the island, overlooking the beautiful bay where there are the most beautiful beaches of Elba, stretches of golden sand and dramatic cliffs framed by rolling hills and crystal clear sea.

The strategic location makes it a key road junction. From here you can reach in 20 minutes Portoferraio, the island's capital, where is the main port, 10 minutes from the airport of La Pila and 15 minutes Marina di Campo and Marciana Marina. In the summer months a bus every hour reaches the most important places.

The ELBA

  The island is known for its beauty, crystal clear sea, a charming nature and its rich history make it a tourist area and a valuable piece of paradise in the heart of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Despite being the third largest Italian island, its dimensions are far from those of Sicily and Sardinia; However, in its 27 km long and 18 wide, contains so many natural and geological environments that rivals many Italian regions: the charming seabed to the mountains surrounded by woods, beaches and clear sea framed by the Mediterranean , the small villages of hill immersed in a timeless tranquility, Etruscan and Roman archaeological sites, the mining sites, towers, churches, fortresses.
