About this listing

A large terrace overlooking the sea. A house in symbiosis with the colors, the scent and sound of the waves. Almost like a ship, docked on land. And only a few steps from the town of Cavo.

The space

The house is located on the beachfront street that runs South from Cavo and has been the summer home of my family since a time when Elba was largely undiscovered by tourists. They chose this place as their oasis of peace, a shelter from the stress of daily life. It was the perfect balance of natural beauty, accessability and comfort.

The house has a large living room that opens out onto a terrace, a separate kitched equipped with a dishwasher, three large light and airey bedrooms as well as two bathrooms. In addition, on the ground floor there is a garage (2.3 meters wide but PLEASE NOTE THE HEIGHT--1.9 meters!!), another room where beach equipment can be left and a shower that can be used when returning from the beach.

The terrace and the two large windows in the living room make the sea view enjoyable all day long every day of the year. From sunrise to sunset, from the doldrums of summer to the storms of winter, the water’s continuously changing shades of blue and green offer an unforgetable spectacle.

The house has heat and is comforable in periods other than just the summer. It is also equipped with Wi-Fi, but only seasonally, from March 15 to November 15.

Guest access

The entire house is at the disposal of guests.

Interaction with guests

It is a pleasure for me to meet my guests when they arrive, and I am happy to help them during their stay. When I am not on the island there is person whom guests may contact for any help they may need or problems they encounter.

Other things to note

Distance from the sea: 20 meters (30 seconds by foot)
Distance from the center of town: 200 meters (3 minutes by foot)
Distance from the Elba airport: 35 kilometers

Beaches that can be reached on foot:
1) Spiaggia di Cavo (Cavo Beach) – cabanas, beach chairs, bar, restaurant
2) Spiaggia del Frugoso (Frugoso Beach) in front of Topi Island – bar, one should choose between here or Cavo Beach according to where the wind is coming from.
3) Cala delle Alghe (Seaweed Cove) is a charming natural swimming pool that is best in the afternoon and at sunset. Unfortunately there has been considerable erosion and much of the beach has washed away so the cove is only enjoyable if there are not too many people, though one can also use the nearby rocks.

Beaches that can be reached by Car:
1)Cala Seregola (Seregola Cove) at Capo Pero – sand sparkles due to minerals, bar
2) Spiaggia di Topinetti (Topinetti Beach) – Black sand!

We had a great time in Letzias house by the see and can only recommend this lodging. Though we didn't meet Letizia, she gave us good informations by mail and a little booklet in the house, and her girlfriend Alessandra has told us everything else to know. Everything was just as described, a good equipped kitchen, nice rooms and this fabulous bathroom. We often use the terrace with this beautiful view to the see. We will come back surely!!!

Although we met Letizia not personal, it was a fantastic hostess who provided beforehand for everything that is important for a good arrival. We spent wonderful days in Cavo, on Elba and in the house with the most beautiful view of the sea. Even a rainy day we could enjoy that. The heating in the house would also permit a winter holiday. We had everything you need.

We were two weeks on Elba and 11 days in Letizia's house. There, everything was perfect and we lacked nothing. The distance to the sea and the terrace of the house overlooking the sea is unbeatable. From Cavo we have taken several trips to other beautiful places of Elba or remained directly in Cavo. There, too, there are wonderful beaches. The contact with Letizia was always very friendly. We have at all times felt comfortable and would definitely come back in the house by the sea!

We stayed with our children (2&4 years)in Letizias house. There is everything you need and cavo is a short walk away. Perfect is the shower and toilet downstairs so you dont have all the sand in the house:-). Cavo is a little nice village with a few restaurants with very friendly staff. Letizia was there at our arrival and also let us some fruits and water in the fridge. She was during our stay always at our disposal and helped with everything.

We stayed in a wonderful holiday home in cavo. The place was lovely facilities for everything lovely living room dining room and my favourite the wonderful terracotta patio at the front in the sun shine looking over the sea. Our host was great and left us a gift of prosecco and honey as it was our honeymoon! Loved cavo, a lovely seaside town with several restaurants. We walked to the butcher and bakery each morning to get our breakfast. Had a wonderful time. Would definitely stay again.

La famiglia mi ha trasmesso l'amore per le cose belle, i valori della tradizione e i segreti della nostra cucina. Le esperienze professionali in giro per l'Italia mi hanno portato a condividere tutto ciò con una fitta rete di amici e con quanti, sempre più numerosi, hanno voglia di conoscere la mia regione.
I am a journalist and was born in Tuscany, where I have chosen to remain. It is my homeland and I never tire of seeing it in new and different ways. My family passed on to me an appreciation of beautiful things, the value of tradition and the secrets of our cuisine. My professional experience, traveling throughout Italy, has made me want to share all of this with a close network of friends and a growing number of others who want to experience and understand my homeland better.
