“Beautiful location, happy place.”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

This agriturismo is on the simple side - it has four suites nicely furnished but with nothing extra to requirements (and fortunately no fake frescoes or plastic, as are all too common in Tuscany). Ours had a good bed, high ceilings and whitewashed walls, two rooms, a kitchen and a nice little bathroom. No A/C, but a fan which was more than adequate since everything cools off at night. It was very natural and restful, with a fig tree outside from which we picked figs every morning. The view is the best on the island - nothing but forest leading out to the sea, and a gorgeous sunset - and the area is far enough from any village to be completely silent, with unbelievable stars at night. The benefit of staying in the area, which is the least touristy corner of Elba, is that it is being reinvented as an ecotourism zone, and there are many walking trails and incredible views all around.
The host, Alessandro, is lovely, and was very helpful. You need to bring an Italian phrasebook if you're non-Italian speaking, but we got by OK despite not really having much Italian. He runs a small 'slow food' restaurant elsewhere on the property, where we had a phenomenal dinner using local ingredients, with local wine. A friendly wild boar visits the restaurant for a bread roll each night.
Stay here if you want a romantic, quiet getaway, as simple as possible but still functional and really beautiful. Don't come if you are looking for all-inclusive, luxurious, resort-type accommodation. It's good for people with kids - our suite could have accommodated three kids as well as us, on the futon and camp bed provided in the other room. Other important info is that it's self-catering - there's no breakfast provided, but you have a kitchen.
You need a car, or at least a bike, if you plan to stay here - it's really away from it all, though only about a kilometre from the small town of Cavo, where there's a ferry port and enough shops that you don't need to go farther afield if you don't want to. You can get to the sea by walking down the hill a hundred metres or so from your front door, but the nicest nearby beach is a short drive away at Nisporto. Cavo's four beaches are also very nice, and snorkelling there can be arranged through Alessandro.
Can't recommend it highly enough.
