Holiday rentals on Elba Island

If the island of Elba is associated in the collective imagination with Napoleonic exile, it has also become a very popular destination for seaside and cultural tourism. Less frequented than Mallorca or Ibiza, it seduces by the beauty of its beaches and its well-preserved wilderness. Want to spend a week tanning on the hot sand? Think of the island of Elba for your next holiday. The island has a large number of accommodations dedicated to tourists, including a wide selection of holiday rentals. These are of all sizes and styles, from the small studio to the large country house built facing the sea. Rentals are spread over the seven main municipalities of the island but it is certainly in Portoferraio and in the seaside resort of Marciana Marina that you will find the most. Practical and user-friendly, the rental also offers a very good price-quality ratio.

Holidays on Elba Island

Location and orientation

Elba, a strategic island since ancient times

Elba takes place in the Tuscan archipelago, between Corsica and the Italian coast. It is separated from the boot by a canal about ten kilometres wide, the Piombino canal, and belongs to the Italian province of Livorno. Several centuries before our era, the island's ideal location on the Tyrrhenian Sea and its mineral-rich soils were already a source of envy. This explains why many Etruscan and Roman remains are still visible today on this 220 km2 island.

A small piece of paradise easily accessible

To come and spend your holidays on the island of Elba, the first step is to go to Piombino, 100 km south of Pisa and 150 km southwest of Florence. From there, you can take one of the many ferries to Portoferraio. During the summer, a company also operates Bastia - Portoferraio routes. Then allow about an hour and a half to reach the island of Elba from the island of Beauty. Arriving by boat is certainly the easiest and most economical option, but the island also has a small airport at Marina di Campo. However, it is only served by local airlines or private aircraft. A well-developed shuttle and bus system allows you to explore the island of Elba without having to take the car.

Destination for outdoor activities

Dream beaches

Elba has nearly 150 km of coastline with very diverse landscapes. There are magnificent small coves with rocks reminiscent of those of the Marseille creeks, maquis, cliffs falling steeply into the sea and several beaches. These expanses of fine sand have contributed greatly to Elba's success with tourists. Marina di Campo is particularly pleasant, with its transparent waters and unobstructed view of the island of Montecristo.

A wide variety of leisure and sports activities

Swimming and sunbathing are not the only two activities available to holidaymakers, far from it. The island is ideal for hiking, climbing, cycling, caving, diving, diving, water sports and trekking. Mont Capanne, the dominant point of the island, is crossed by many paths that allow you to reach the summit on foot, by mountain bike or on horseback. However, you don't need to be a seasoned sportsman to observe this sublime panorama thanks to a cable car to be taken in Marciana.

Elba is the largest island in the Tuscan archipelago. The two nearest islets are Cerboli and Palmaiola, both uninhabited

Top 5 things to do

1. Discover the island's fortifications

Due to its strategic position in the Mediterranean basin, Elba has been the site of several battles and has sparked rivalries between France and Italy. This explains the presence of many forts and towers with imposing appearance. Thus, to protect Portoferraio and to observe the ships approaching in the distance, three Genoese forts and towers were built there. The centre of the town is still partly surrounded by vast walls that contribute to its picturesque character.

2. Walk in Napoleon's footsteps at La Palazzina dei Mulini and Villa Napoleonica

Elba played an important role in the Napoleonic epic since it was there that the emperor was exiled in 1814. Today, we can visit the two pretty villas in which he stayed during these ten months. One of these residences is the "Palais des Moulins", on the heights of Portoferraio. Although the original furniture has been scattered over the years, the Emperor's library is still preserved in its original form.

3. Observe a wild nature

Elba is a real sanctuary for birds and is a delight for bird watchers. Along the coasts, it is not uncommon to see dolphins, small whales, seals and turtles. Its waters, rich in multicoloured fish and octopus, are very popular with divers. As you walk in the mountains, keep your eyes open so you don't miss the wild sheep and goats.

4. Enjoy the entertainment of Portoferraio

Portoferraio concentrates most of the island's activities. Its port is thus bordered by many restaurants, shops and bars, some of which remain open until early morning during the high season. Take the opportunity to taste a schiaccia briaca riese, a pastry made with dried fruit typical of the island, facing the sea.

5. Go on a river trip

Several companies offer one-day boat trips to discover the rest of the Tuscan archipelago or to explore the coast of southern Italy. It is up to you to decide whether you prefer a sailboat or a catamaran and whether you want to sail alone or entrust this mission to a skipper.
