We spent two weeks at this lovely apartment. The owners were extremely friendly & helpful. The apartment was clean, spacious and well furnished with a wonderfully equipped kitchen. There is a large terrace and beautiful gardens. The location of the apartment was ideal - Procchio beach, restaurants and amenities are all within a short walk. If you have a car Elba has no shortage of great beaches, particularly if you enjoy snorkelling and the island is easy to navigate.We cannot recommend Il Gelso highly enough and we would love to visit again.
I have been visiting Elba many times for 30+ years and it never ceases to amaze me. This time we traveled from the US and stayed at Il Gelso in Procchio with my family of four and two friends. The house is beautiful, only minutes on foot from one of the most gorgeous beaches on Elba. A car is not needed if the intention is to spend most of the time in Procchio, but of course it could be useful for exploring the Island. Stefano and Paola, the owners, were very kind throughout our stay and always accommodated our needs and gave us plenty of information about the island. The house is set in a lush, green garden with many fruit trees (the wild plums were yummy!) and plenty of space for small kids to play. It is beautifully decorated with antique forniture, has a very practical and bright kitchen and can easily accommodate 7 people. We had a very relaxing stay enjoying our meals on the patio every day. Highly recommended.
