The Residence Gavila's complex offers clean, comfortable, spacious studio apartments (sleeping up to 4 people) and two-room apartments (sleeping up to 5 people), furnished in simple yet convenient style and fully equipped for cooking. Every apartment has a large shaded outdoor space furnished with a table and chairs for open-air eating, or for relaxing in the deckchairs.
The complex enjoys a very peaceful location even though it is near to Porto Azzurro (2 km), Capoliveri (7 km) and the zone's main beaches (Barbarossa and Reale 1.5 km away) and easy accessible from the ports of Rio Marina and Portoferraio. Having Porto Azzurro nearby is a major advantage. the small town has full amenities and is very lively in the evenings, with the harbour and its entertainment venues.
The panorama here is delightful with a fantastic view, in the daytime, of the sea, Porto Azzurro and Capoliveri, turning into a marvel at sunset. All around are woodlands and hills rising to almost 400 metres, with excellent trails for walkers and mountain bikers leading to breath-taking landscapes.
A vehicle is essential for getting to the beaches and towns, but one of the complex's strong points is that it offers the opportunity of a relaxing holiday well away from the bustle of the town.
In fact, peace and calm dominate the entire complex and the apartments offer views of the island's beauty, from the view over the Monte Castello hills to the sea in the Bay of Porto Azzurro.
The complex is very well kept with gardens and outdoor areas. There are no parking problems as there is plenty of space for all. It is important to take care in the final kilometre as the road narrows and the final stretch climbs steeply. The Gavila's Residence complex offers its guests an efficient laundry and ironing and dog-sitter service.
It is a wonderful place to come back to after a day by the sea, when you finally retreat to your little veranda in the green grounds, the quiet .... relaxation, a shower, a drink on the terrace and then, if you like, it is only 5 minutes' drive to vibrant Porto Azzurro.
The complex is suitable for your pets, which are always welcome provided they do not disturb other guests. Porto Azzurro even has a Dog Beach specifically for them, equipped with umbrellas, loungers and showers. The wilder free beach at the Terranera pool is also ideal for dogs.
As well as the usual summer seaside months, we suggest you come and relax at the complex in spring, when Elba's flora will sweeten your start to the day with its fragrance, or in autumn, with beautiful walks amidst the bright colours of the sea and the mountains.
