Un endroit unique et inoubliable!

  • 5 of 5

Sensibles aux lieux chargés d'histoire, nous n'avons pas été déçus en louant cet appartement incroyable dans une forteresse construite par les Médicis. L'aménagement intérieur a été pensé par un architecte et le résultat est vraiment unique, avec un mélange audacieux de vieilles pierres et de gaieté moderne (le carrelage est juste magnifique!). Côté pratique, l'appartement met à disposition tout le nécessaire pour cuisiner sur place, la clim est la bienvenue en cas de forte chaleur (ce qui a été notre cas fin juillet). Au niveau du stationnement, notre voiture avait l'autorisation d'entrer dans la zone résidents et nous n'avons eu aucune difficulté à nous garer à proximité de la forteresse. Evidemment, la grimpette est de rigueur pour rentrer chez soi (mais un lieu pareil se mérite!). Le gardien du fort est adorable. La terrasse n'est pas utilisable le matin et le midi (plein soleil) mais super agréable le soir (et le coucher de soleil sur Portoferraio et sur le phare est magnifique). Bref, on a adoré ce côté "village gaulois" : la forteresse abrite d'autres appartements dans son enceinte et on a cette délicieuse impression d'être coupés du monde tout en étant à deux pas des terrasses, des boutiques et de l'animation du centre. Idem pour rayonner dans l'île, tout est vraiment accessible facilement car Portoferraio a une position centrale au niveau voies de communication.

Seul bémol : l'odeur d'humidité de l'appartement (qui nécessiterait peut-être à terme un aménagement pour protéger ce bel appartement).

On recommande chaudement!!!!
