We spent 1 week in Casa del Sole and we had so much fun and relax!
The location is beautiful and despite the caos that you could expect in such a small island in the middle of August, once we arrived there, there were no people, no noises, no crowds, just peace and nature!
The house is perfect for 5 people, well equipped and furnished with the special taste from Annalisa, the landlord.
Annalisa and her family welcomed us as we were friends, and we could enjoy the stunning outside pool and also the veggies coming from their organic garden!
What to say: strongly recommend!
Top in class!
We had wonderful two weeks on Elba, in the house Casa del Sole. Everything was perfect: the Location (a two floor house, perfect for 2 couples, with a nice swimmingpool and a very good installation), the surrounding area, the bays and beaches and of course the Host Family. They are lovely People and helps you with any Problem. The House is in a very quiet area and very well to the rest.
Thank you very much, Renata, Annalisa and Antonio, for the lovely stay - see you next year :-)
What we liked most apart from the ful and peaceful location, the great views and the comfortable apartment, was the very warm welcome by Annalisa and her parents. Their hospitality is heartwarming. They made us feel at home right away upon our arrival and were helpful when needed during our stay, always respecting your privacy.
Nach der langen Reise erwartete uns ein sehr freundlicher Empfang. Wir fühlten uns von Anfang an sehr willkommen. Annalisa und Ihre Familie halfen uns jederzeit bei Bedarf, aber wir hatten auf dem Grundstück unsere absolute Ruhe und waren am Pool immer alleine. Die Unterkunft entspricht den Bildern und das gemütlich eingerichtete Haus ist war sehr, sehr sauber. Auch das Grundstück und Garten sind super gepflegt. Wir durften uns bei Früchten und Gemüse bedienen – einfach herrlich. Und der Blick auf das Meer – atemberaubend. Allein diese Aussicht und die Sonnenuntergänge waren den Urlaub wert. Zu Fuß ist in ca. 15 Minuten in einer ruhigen Bucht am Meer. Wir waren August in der absoluten Hauptsaison auf diesem Anwesen. Auf Elba war sehr viel los. Aber durch die Lage im Westen hatten wir unsere absolute Ruhe und bei Bedarf ist man sehr schnell im Trubel. Viele Buchten und auch nette Dörfer sind mit dem Auto gut erreichbar. Im Dorf gibt es ein kleines Lebensmittelgeschäft, wo man die wichtigsten Lebensmittel bekommt.
Ich war jahrelang als Einkäufer für Ferienwohnungen für große Anbieter tätig. So eine Unterkunft in der angebotenen Qualität ist sehr schwer zu finden.
Wir haben diesen Urlaub sehr genossen und hoffen auf ein Wiedersehen – Vielen Dank Annalisa und Familie!
Here is also my review in English language! I hope guests can see it in a few days.
We are a family with two kids from Austria and we spent our holiday in August 2016 on Elba. After a long trip Annalisa and her family gave us a very warm welcome. From the first day we felt very comfortable and welcome. Annalisa and her family helped us every time if we had any needs. But if we would like to be on our own, we didn`t see the family. All during our holidays we were always alone at the pool. This holiday home looks like the pictures in the Internet. The apartment itself is furnished nicely, and it very, very clean also the garden and the pool are in top condition. Our children (8 and 14 years) and also we enjoyed the pool and garden very much. We were allowed to eat fruits and vegetables from the garden. The view from the house is fantastic – you see over the see and can watch imposing sunsets from the pool or the terrace. We loved that place so we often went very late to the see and stayed nearly the whole day in casa del sole.
Colle d'Orano is a small village on the west-side of Elba. By foot you can go within about 15 minutes to a small but nice beach. Within a few minutes you can reach several nice beaches and villages by car. You live very quiet but if you want good restaurants, action or night life that is all reachable within short time by car. In that village and in casa del sole we haven´t noticed that it was high season. We loved that. Other villages were very crowded. In the village there is also a small and nice supermarket were you ca buy all the things you need.
I was an account Manager in tourism. Such house in that Quality with fantastic view and such a nice pool are very hard to find.
We spent a wonderful week at this place! We hope we see you again!
Thank you Annalisa and Family

We stayed at Casa del Sole with our three children aged 14-10 for a week. After a long drive, Annalisa and her parents welcomed us super warmly and instantly made us feel at home in this utterly charming house. We particularly loved the peace and quiet, ocean views (sunsets!), the short walk down to the lovely beach and the fantastic help-yourself veggie garden. The owners are spectacularly kind and welcoming hosts. The house feels far away from any tourist hustle, but just a short walk to the local shop for necessities. A short drive brought us to various good restaurants and sandy beaches for swimming and boat hire.
In short: we loved it and we want to go back. Thank you Annalisa and family - such generosity and charm is hard to find, and such a memorable pleasure! We hope that those who follow us to Casa del Sole bring back memories equally wonderful as ours. We are fans.
