Shared pool of the holiday village 1.2 km distant

Two detached cottages near to the beach

Villette Gemini are two detached cottages in a distance of approx. 40 m from each other, located on the so-called 'coast of the silver gulls'. It is a green and unspoiled plateau (218 m) at the southeast end of the island Elba, 9 km from the romantic village of Capoliveri. Behind Capoliveri an unpaved road of 9 km leads to the holiday village. This access is not suitable for low slung cars.

The holiday village is situated in the centre of this plateau. Approximately 450 hectares of forest, fruit orchards, Mediterranean maquis and cultivated fields cover the slopes down to the sea, where guests can enjoy private beaches. The coastline covers 12 km, where small beaches and bays alternate with steeply rocks. The holiday village offers a variety of accommodation: the ancient master villa, tastefully adapted to a small hotel; apartments that are placed in the farm houses 'Fattorias', as well as small villas, amongst the pines forests, facing the sea.

The two small houses are "twins": the buildings and layouts are identical. The equipment is functional, each house sleeps 4+2 people. The houses have sea views and are located above the Ginepro beach (the largest of the beaches), which can be reached by foot walking through bushes and rocks in only 20 minutes. To reach the centre of the holiday village (1.2 km) you can walk through a wood or you can walk (or go by car) through the fields of the estate. From the holiday village you can reach other beaches by a minibus shuttle.

A small supermarket and the hotel restaurant in the village provide the welfare of the guests. The restaurant with ample terrace offers both typical Italian food and international dishes made with passion and professionalism. Furthermore there is another restaurant approx. 6 km distant, a simple building located in the area where the wood opens to the beach. You can enjoy eating outside there, in the shade of aged cork oaks. The extensive menu includes traditional dishes with an emphasis on fish specialities.

A wide range of sports activities are offered: 3 tennis courts, a large pool, mountain bike rental, table tennis, diving courses, sailing, windsurfing, training course for golf and horse riding. The horseback riding centre of the holiday village has an outdoor riding school, covered ring for beginners, school track in the country, obstacle course, convenient club-house saddlery and large stables. A baby club hosts the children (from June until mid September), while parents enjoy their activities or relax.

About Elba Island

Capoliveri: The pretty island village is about 9 km from the house. Shops of all kinds, bank, post office, pharmacy, bars and restaurants are located there. The old fishing village, the small harbour and the picturesquely painted houses are all in the centre of the village. Capoliveri has a pretty beach promenade and romantic lanes - favourite spots to meet and go for an evening stroll.

The island: The island of Elba is a sports lover's paradise - it is just the right place for all those who wish to spend an active holiday enjoying what both nature and water have to offer. Just 10 km from the mainland and with an area of 224 square kilometers, it is the largest island of the Tuscan archipelago and Italy's third largest island. A large part of Elba and the Tuscan islands (Pianosa, Capraia, Montecristo, Giglio and Giannutri) is under the conservation protection of the Tuscan archipelago. The climate is always mild at an average temperature of around 16°C. The average winter temperature is 10°C, 14°C in spring, 23°C in summer and 17°C in autumn. There are more than 70 beaches on the coastline, some of which are quiet spots, while others are more frequently visited.

Connections: Good connections from Elba to the Tuscan coast in Piombino. The ferry from Piombino to Portoferraio (Elba's capital) takes about 50 min. The timetable depends on the season (the ferry leaves almost every hour during high season). Piombino is about two hours from Florence (motorway), which means that day trips to Florence or the Tuscan hinterland are also possible if you stay here. Elba can be reached by aeroplane; in midsummer Marina di Campo is a destination from Milan, Rome and Pisa in Italy, Bern in Switzerland, Munich in Germany and Vienna in Austria.

Sport: The island is blessed with many different beaches: rocky, pebble and sandy. During the summer sun umbrellas and sunloungers can be rented on the beaches by the day. The water is clear and refreshing, it is considered the cleanest in the Mediterranean. All kinds of water sports are offered on the island. Monte Capanne is 1.018 m high and Elba's highest mountain. From its peak, hikers enjoy a splendid vi
