Villa Padulella

Elba island, Tuscany, Italy
Sleeps 8+2 / 4 bedrooms/ 4 bathrooms

A few steps along the stone walkway that crosses the green lawn will take you from the portico to the large platform/solarium overlooking the sea; from here, a private passage will accompany you to the splendid 150 metres of white beach that form the Golfo della Padulella, bordered by the imposing cliffs that plunge into the endless blue that characterizes this formidable strip of the island of Elba, within an biological protected area. In this authentic paradise of incomparable beauty, in the centre of a Mediterranean-inspired garden with a beautiful sea-water swimming pool and a wonderful gazebo equipped for outdoor cooking and relaxation, Villa Padulella finds its natural collocation. The exterior is clad with granite stone, cleverly alternating with delicate plastering and juniper and chestnut wood, an authentic work of art, the result of the successful combination between home automation technology and skilful craftsmanship. The doors and windows in pickled oak and the custom-made furniture set in the walls have the sense of solid wood that has been salvaged and treated; the lamps and the exquisite bed headboards, made from bleached driftwood make every room unique, evoking splendid motifs of aquatic inspiration; the beautiful glazed majolica tiles in brilliant orange, yellow and purple are a cascade of energy for the bedrooms floors and the original bathrooms, personalized by cylinder-shaped showers accessed through an open porthole. Hub of the house is the bright living room, all in white, which is made to duet harmoniously, by the continuity of the natural terracotta flooring, both inside and outside, and the lively play of large glass doors and windows, with the pergola that expands out to the garden and pool, the perfect spot to just laze about and watch the sea while comfortably ensconced in a cosy armchair. It will be wonderful to return to this dream villa after a day spent exploring the enchanting little coastal corners of this beautiful island, the stunning beaches of Cavoli, Sansone, Fetovaia, Cala dei Frati and Sant'Andrea, or the fabulous paths which wind up to the peaks of Monte Capanne (also accessible by cable car), the ascent of which will be rewarded by stunning views across the whole island and which stretch to the coast of Tuscany and to Corsica. The villa is located in a residential area just three minutes from the centre of Portoferraio, where the the main bus terminus is and where you will find all services, shops and supermarkets. At the centre of the beach is a restaurant and bar open during the summer.
