Where should we stay?!?

We are very much looking forward to going to Elba island in August but are unsure which part to stay in. We will have a car so can travel during the day to different beaches and other parts of the island. However we would like to be based somewhere so that we do not need to drive anywhere in the evening - somewhere with nice restaurants and perhaps a few bars also.

If anyone has any tips on areas and also hotels within the areas we would be really grateful :)

Hi!

As I said they are both nice villages where life goes on also in winter so you find locals together with tourists and this helps to feel at ease and gives a relaxing aurea.

We have a small appartement in PA and we enjoy sitting at a bar in the square looking at the boats coming in and out of the port, children playing, tourists buying and taking photos... then we go to one of the beaches in front, have a bath, then walk home doing our shopping for dinner on our way back.

There are many people alone maybe because one of them has to work while the other enjoys their summer house so don't worry.

Bye :)

Where is the rugby club situated in Elba? If I bring a boys rugby team to the island what do you suggest they do and see. We are here for two days. Will they enjoy the silver mine?

Hi!

It's at San Giovanni, just outside Portoferraio.

I think they should. You can choose which excursion.

If it's summer they'll probably enjoy swimming.

There are also some nice walking excursions on Monte Capanne and you can book a giude.
