Immersed in the luxurious greenery of the Archipelago Toscano National Park and yet just a few steps away from the sea you will find Rio Albano Residenza,on the East coast of the Island of Elba, between Rio Marina and Cavo.
It was built in the late 19th Century and belonged to the Mining Authority who used it as a home for the iron ore miners. It has recently been refurbished and transformed into fully equipped holiday apartments in relaxing surroundings.
An oasis of peace and tranquillity, far from the noise of the lively beaches. At Rio Albano you can choose between 11 elegant apartments, 5 with a private garden, and all with a wonderful sea view and air-conditioning. The pretty garden surrounding the property offers extra relaxation areas for guests and the nearby fine white sandy beaches gently slope down to the crystal clear sea.
The residence promises a relaxing stay in comfortable, peaceful apartments overlooking the sea, far from the stress of the city.
The beautiful beach at Cala Seregola is a delightful 600 metre walk from the property.
Rio Albano stands in a dominating position approximately 20 metres above sea level offering guests not just a breath-taking view with an array of colours, the blue sea, the green scrub, the red fertile land and the glare of the rich mineral sands, but also benefits the senses: your hearing will sharpen, relaxed by the refracting waves, your sense of smell will rejoice in the perfumes of the salty air and myrtle and juniper berries, your sense of touch will exalt caressing the sea surface and scouring the sands for ancient mineral traces. Your taste buds will celebrate the gastronomic specialities of the island. You can even cook a wonderful “polpo all'elbana”, after catching the octopus in the waters under the residence.
The position of Rio Albano, half way along the panoramic road between Rio Marina and the small town of Cavo, means that guests can enjoy many trips either by car, foot, motorbike, bicycle or by train
