Who says that seaside places are perfect destinations only for the summer period?
Who says that hotels on Elba are all closed in autumn ?
Villa Wanda, a small family-run hotel just 3 km from Porto Azzurro and Capoliveri, is open all year round with very affordable rates starting from € 35 per person !!!!!!
Convenient, easy and quick to reach, the Elba Island is also an ideal destination for a short autumn holiday.
Sports, food and ancient villages will entertain you on the island even better than in summer season; in the low season you can visit Elba without having to collide with the traffic and confusion that characterize the summer season and that you will be happy to leave behind when you decide to treat yourself to a weekend out of season.
There are so many autumn sports to be practiced on the island: from trekking to mountain biking, from diving to snorkeling, to windsurfing, without forgetting free climbing.
Other things that you absolutely cannot miss during your autumn holidays on the Island of Elba are the ancient villages and municipalities of the island, spectacular !!!!!!
From the Napoleonic Villas, which testify to the passage of the French emperor exiled to the Elba island, to the Roman Villa delle Grotte, as well as being an archaeological site of high historical interest.
From the Volterraio Castle, the oldest fortification on the whole island, the only one ever conquered by Turkish pirates, of Etruscan origin, to Monte Capanne, the highest on the island (over 1000 meters), it is possible to admire, on a clear day, all the islands of the Tuscan archipelago.
From Rio nell’Elba, the annexed Hermitage of Santa Caterina and the Orto dei Semplici to Rio Marina and its open-cast mines.
They offer colors and reflections that have nothing to envy to seaside destinations.
From Capoliveri mines, located in the heart of the Monte Calamita, to the many many beaches of Elba: a single holiday is not enough to discover all of them.
Do not forget Welfare! In Portoferraio, just in front of the gulf, there is another of the surprises of the Island of Elba, the Terme di San Giovanni with which the Hotel Villa Wanda has an agreement. Open since 1963, the structure has been able to combine traditional mud treatments and baths (affiliated with the National Health System) with modern services dedicated to beauty and relaxation.
