My husband and I stayed at Sylvia's place for 2 lovely nights on Elba. It was spectacular and Sylvia was a wonderful host! The place is an apartment on the third floor (a bit of a climb if you're older or have had knee surgery), each room is sufficient, has a lock and private bathroom. We stayed in the top room with the sea view and so glad we chose it!
The location is about a 15 minute walk from the large ferry port of Portoferrario, its flat and easily manageable. The apartment building is right in the heart of the town, close to restaurants, bars and two beaches with crystal clear waters.
We loved Elba and Sylvia was a big help. When my husband got the beginnings of an ear infection from diving she called her partner who is a doctor in Milan. He recommended ear drops and a local pharmacy, 5 minute walk and 10 euro later and my husband was in much better spirits. The place is beautiful, very clean and excellently decorated. Sylvia takes pride in the home: providing fresh linens daily, lightly yummy candles, closing windows and turning on the AC at night when you're out. She's very thoughtful, kind and respectful. Would recommend this place 100% and look forward to our next stay on Elba!
