There is a place on the Elba Island where time has stopped, where convulsed tourism, which usually has a negative effect, is completely forgotten, a place where nature has been sighted, and only few human intervention are required: an island within the island, there we find Tenuta Il Gabbiano.
It's a beautiful site, to enjoy with your senses, where the color of red earth, contrasting with the green foliage of the pines and the delicate blue of the sea characteristic of the island, giving extraordinary glimpses of a breathtaking nature. The property is surrounded by 12 kilometers of coastline, bathed by a sea of light color, almost urea; a succession of beaches, coves, bays are home to the largest colony of herring gulls.
At the heart of the estate there is the beautiful nineteenth century villa which has preserved its original charm: small interventions have transformed it into a small and friendly hotel, lovingly restored, with its decor of antique furniture. In the large terrace in front of the villa you can have dinner outdoors under the domes of ancient pines.
Surround the villa, we find the old agricultural farms, which were also subject of a recovery that allowed them to become 40 comfortable apartments of various sizes.
Complete the tourist offer of Tenuta Il Gabbiano fifteen villas, immersed in the pine forest and in the quiet of nature, most of which were the subject of careful and accurate restoration.
This structure that we show here is part of these large villas surrounded by greenery.
