Welcome to our sweet house in the beautiful Island of Elba, built in the perfume of the tuscan woods, overlooking at the Mediterranean sea, it is a quiet poetic way to relax in contact with nature. The house was built by my parents, who met in Elba.
The house of Lamaia is in the perfumed Mediterranean woods, at a distance of 3 km from the main harbor of Portoferraio with its boutiques and museums and the sea village of Procchio over looking the gulf with the beautiful beaches .
It is a nice quiet place out of the tourists and in the freshness of the woods while in summer the island can get crowded, here you are at calm and rest! It has been decorated by my mother and father with their artistic original designers touch! They met in Elba 50 years ago, fell in love and got married and built their summer vacation home for them and their kids.
Today the family grew, and Elba is the meeting point for all of us, in August we meet from all parts of the planet just to enjoy each others company, relax and have fun. Also near by in the woods, my father has built a little wooden house for the kids to play!

Other things to note
Elba is very green, has beautiful beaches very different depending on which side of the island you are, so there is always a new beach to discover. It is part of the Archipel of tuscany, you have great cooking and restaurants, in the charming villages. You also have museums and 2 great villas of Napoleon to visit. At night in the summer you have some fun clubs for drinks and dancing, and a lot of festivals in the villages to discover the recipes and traditions. Elba is also very beautiful in the spring and in the fall, it is full of colores flowers in the spring and in fall it is still very green and has chestnuts and mushrooms. The house is heated so you can come out of the summer season, it will be a very nice experience for relaxing. Some people like to come out of the summertime to go to the nearby thermal station of San Giovanni to do some massages and spa cures. In Elba you can do a lot of sports beside swimming, sailing, windsurfing, trekking, tennis, golf etc...

Please don't smoke in the bedrooms, and be careful if smoking and making a barbecue of the danger of fire in these woods it can burn very easily just because of a cigarette!
