Resort le Picchiaie An exclusive holiday surrounded by the scent of the seaand the fragrances of the herbs and plants of the Elba island

The Resort le Picchiaie Hotel & Spa at the Elba Island (Tuscany) is unique for its history, tradition and amazing position on a green hill from which guests can enjoy a breathtaking view on the Gulf of Portoferraio; an ancient manor house converted into a hotel by Prince Alessandro Comneno d’Otranto in the 60s. The property is set in a beautiful park and stands out in its splendid architecture from any other building on the island. The Resort has been completely renovated in the past five years by the new owner, who with wise and respectful interventions has brought it back to its former glory. It has 58 rooms and suites, a spa with a wellness center, 2 tennis courts, 2 swimming pools and a stunning 20 acres park as well as a highly reputed restaurant. The 4 stars hotel offers an exclusive holiday surrounded by the scent of the sea and the fragrances of the herbs and plants of the Elba Island, where guests may relax and sunbath lying by the swimming pools while caressed by a pleasant breeze softening the summer heat. It caters to all guests who like to stay in an exclusive location, close to the main attractions but in absolute tranquility and away from the city, though beautiful towns are only a short drive away: Capoliveri, Porto Azzurro and Portoferraio with their historical attractions and landscapes are in fact only 15 minutes from the Resort, while panoramic paths which start right from the hotel offer all kinds of excursions. Because of the strategic position of the Resort, guests may reach some of the most beautiful beaches of the island; in particular, the closest and nicest are the famous Capoliveri seven beaches, Lacona beaches and Golfo Stella beaches. The Elba Island , the most important island in the Tuscan archipelago, can be easily reached by ferries that leave every hour from the port of Piombino: it is the third[1]largest Italian island after Sardinia and Sicily and boasts an extremely varied territory of extraordinary beauty. Its inland offers forests, lakes, and countless natural beauties along with landscapes as well as tourist attractions such as iron mines which are still visited, and endless excursions on foot, by bicycle or off-road vehicles. Mount Capanne at 1019 ASL, is one of the main examples of the variety in the area, which from sea level reaches up to mountain heights in few minutes and offers a spectacular 360-degree panorama that embraces Italy, Corsica and the entire Tuscan archipelago. Over 200 beaches along the perimeter of the island offer every possible variety to satisfy those who prefer sand, rock, stones or iron powder, some of which are accessible only by sea, and still offer the feeling of being in a private paradise.
