Great location100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

The lights on the right of the cover picture are the ones of our family house in Forno. The village is located at the end of the Biodola bay on Elba island. This home was built by boat by my grand-mother, a painter who had fallen in love with the place. We manage it for the family. It is located at the limit of the national park, and hence still only accessible by boat or by foot today. It has a private (stone) beach just below the house, and easy access to a small sand beach close to the house.

Very elegant house in a unique position of one of Elba's most beautiful bays. Ideally you bring a boat, SUP or alike with you to make even more out of it. Ideally plan more than a 7-days-stay to fully enjoy this superb place.

The house is just great. We spent already a couple of holidays on Elba but have never been in such a nice place with such a beautiful view. Even the way from the car to the house will not prevent us to come back. You have to go on your own to discover in more detail this place to…

I can just repeat wat the other 5 stars recommendations wrote. Its such a great, quiet place. Yes, you have to walk 5mins, but what you get for it is literally the last house in Forno,, loads of space and your own little private area at the water. If I go back to Elba again I def…

We are a family of 4 (two kids aged 11 and 8) and spent a fantastic week in this beautiful house on Elba. The location of the house is breathtaking. We enjoyed sitting on the terrace just gazing over the bay (usually with a glass of Vermentino), going swimming/snorkeling from the…

The place is wonderful! Of season when we were there it's a bit isolated. But the scenery and nature is extraordinarily! Philippe is very nice!

The view of the sunset from this surprising property was simply gorgeous. On top of that, we saw a meteor shower from the roof and an amazing fireworks display from the balcony. In addition, we were swimming in the sapphire waters daily and renting a pedal boat to have an excus…

I currently live in London with my wife and our 3 children. My grandmother built our family home in Tuscany about 70 years ago. She was a painter, who fell in love with the beautiful light of this place and decided to paint from there for several months per year. My siblings and …
