Casa Scirocco is a comfortable apartment on the ground floor of a renovated 3-apartment villa, on the green Northern coast of Elba island. The beautiful beach of Procchio is a few-minutes-walk away and when you need a break from swimming, sunbathing or strolling, you may rent a sail boat, a water bike or a canoe, or just enjoy a tasty "schiaccina" or a sun-set dinner in one of several seaside places. The beach promenade brings you in a few minutes to the village of Procchio, where you can buy groceries, find a ATM or just taste a wonderful "aperitivo" or an ice cream. Procchio hosts a weekly open air market and a small crafts market in summer evenings.Our place is ideally sited as a starting point for trekking and enjoying the stunning, national-park landscapes of the wooded interior of the island, and our house is perfect also for off-season enjoyment. If you want a little evening entertainment, the lively old harbours of Portoferraio, Marciana Marina or Marina di campo are just 15 minutes away. And if you do decide to come without a car, our house is a few meters from a stop of the extensive bus network of the island.

The house is surrounded by a fenced property of some 5000 square meters, partly wooded, partly olive grove and partly garden.

The Tuscany region

The Isle of Elba is the biggest of the seven islands in the Tuscan archipelago (most of which now enjoys National Park protected status) and only 10 km from Piombino harbour on the mainland. It is renowned for being the greenest island in the Mediterranean, covering an area of 223 sq. km., with spectacular mountains alternating with woodland areas, hills covered with typical Mediterranean vegetation sloping down to crystal clear sea and a few vineyards which produce the famous “Elba Bianco” wine. In short, a paradise not only for nature lovers and sun-bathers, but also for horse riders, mountain bikers and hikers who can explore the mountain trails and even climb the island’s highest peak (Mt. Capanne, 1018 metres). The less energetic can take a cable car to ascend to the summit.

Portoferraio is certainly worth a visit: three renaissance forts round it. It is nice to be there in the evenings, promenading in the old harbour (where mainly yachts and fishing boats are berthed now). It is also possible to visit the residences of Napoleon, during his brief reign of the Island. Marciana Marina and Capoliveri are beautifully restored sea-side villages. The old mountain-top villages of Marciana, Poggio, San Piero and Sant’Ilario are a must, both for their quiet atmosphere and for the breatthaking views.

There are many places to visit on the island, besides the well-known Napoleon Bonaparte sites. There are the remains of an ancient Roman villa and traces left by the Etruscans, Romans and, Normans and Saracen invasions in various parts of the island. Elba is also renowned for its variety of minerals and a visit to the old mines is recommended.

Many visitors like to combine a holiday on the Island with a few days sightseeing in Florence (only about two hours from Piombino), Pisa or Siena

Procchio

There are many things to do for active people: besides walking, hiking and biking, other activities include horse riding, mountain gliding, golfing playing tennis and, of course, swimming, sailing and diving.

The GTE (Grande Traversata Elbana = Great Elban Crossing) is a trail that crosses the Island from Northeast to Southwest. The paths cross nearly pristine stretches and offer breathtaking views. It is possible to walk the GTE in 5 or 6 easy pieces, each a few hours long, easily reached by public transportation.

All kind of beaches can be found on the island. The Gulf of Procchio (where our house is sited) is rather large, with a relatively long beach offering all kind of water sports and eating places. More restaurants and pleasant shops and an evening craft-market can be found in the village.

"Nice property, good location, would go again."

As advertised. Good for four. Nice internal space and external patio and garden. Location good in itself for local village and beach as well as a good base for the rest of the island.
