Elba Island, Napolean, the true Italian feel, Portoferraio town (the island's capital), great views and a majestic hotel - what more could we ask for having travelled all the way from Australia to this small island off the Ligurian coast of Italy. And the Villa Ombrosia in such a wonderful setting with gorgeous views over the sea, beach and little... More

Elba Island - where Napolean was exiled - is a place where the Italians love to vacation. There are few English speaking locals and you got the feeling they were not happy with Americans showing up on their island. The hotel was nice - rooms were comfortable and clean. What took away from the experience was the treatment at breakfast... More

We spent 6 nights at Villa Omrosa. We had half board included and that was a nice experience. (We were 2 persons and paid approx. 100 euro per person per night). You could choose between lunch and dinner and always with three different proposals. The staff was very helpful and if you didn't want to finish a bottle of wine... More

Almost all the rooms at the Villa Ombrosa enjoy superb views (most from their own balconies) across the bay north of Portoferraio. It is very well situated for easy access into the port and the old town. The rooms are very small but immaculately clean and well fitted out. The food was not special but was absolutely adequate to our... More

This is a great place to stay. It's just outside the main town and within easy walking distance of the ferry port. Has its own beach, terrace, rooms with balconies & a view of a little island with a lighthouse on it, if you're at the front. Romantic or what? Good to get to Napoleon's town house and the bus...

We were going to stay 2 nights here but extended our stay an extra night because we enjoyed the hotel so much. We had a triple room which was two single beds in a double room and another single in a smaller room, both rooms had tvs and balconys. The decor was simple and some people might think out of... More

We hadn't pre booked a quadruple room with two balconies offering fantastic sea views, but that's where they put us - the best room in the house and a great start! (Mind you, 2 people = fine, but you'd never fit 4 people in here!) Tons of wardrobe/drawer space. Bathroom is great, shower excellent. There is a handy small fridge... More

Simple but good breakfast on the Terrace - what a view. Friendly atmosphere. This is a hidden gem. Well run, clean and friendly with a wonderful family atmosphere and great staff - nothing is a problem. Book directly with the hotel! Beach across the road with free sun beds on the pebbly beach. 10 min walk to the centre of... More
