Villa Laconella is located on the south coast of the island of Elba, on the Gulf of Lacona, enclosed in an embrace of Mediterranean scrub where the colours and scents of nature mingle, gifting strong emotions. Its privileged position allows you to reach two of the most beautiful beaches on the island in just a few minutes on foot with a pleasant stroll on a partly-paved and partly-dirt road, accessible from a small gate in the garden: the beach of Lacona which, with its 1200 metres of white sand, is one of the largest beaches on the island and, next to it, the beach of Laconella, also sandy but with a beautiful cove of stones and pebbles on its right. Once past the entrance gate, the naturally shaded drive leads to this house which has been lovingly restored and furnished by three brothers who have personally supervised the internal and external organisation of the areas in order for it to be lived in both inside and outside. Villa Laconella is located on a sloping-down ground and so it has two not communicating floors, a ground floor and a basement floor, both reachable from the external, following the conformation of the terrain on which it is located. The two floors do not communicate with each other, and neither do the three residential units on the upper floor and this is precisely one of the strong points of the house as it offers complete independence to large groups of guests who choose it, though maintaining a natural unity of all spaces, thus making it the ideal solution for groups of large families. The villa is furnished in a modern style, with the prevailing tones of white standing out against the warm colours of the floor and the beige and blue of the details; natural light is the protagonist, entering through the large windows and the French windows. The internal and external areas are equipped with every comfort and it will be surprisingly easy to get used to, and to abandon yourself to, the company of the scents of the garden mingling with the smell of salt and the sound of the sea echoing in the background.
The main access drive continues down the slight slope of the road to the main entrance which is located on the basement floor. The main entrance leads to a large open-plan living area with open kitchen, dining table and sofa. A hallway leads to a bathroom with shower while a door leads to the sleeping area consisting of a bedroom with a bunk bed and a private wardrobe, communicating via a sliding door with a double bedroom, which can also be accessed from the outside via a French window. From the external area, a few steps lead to the ground floor, which can also be reached from a path from the parking area. On this floor are three non-communicating units with three entrances. Entering the first French window on the left, we come to a living area with kitchenette, dining table, TV and sofa; a hallway leads to a double bedroom and a bathroom with shower and to a room with two bunk beds. Entering the French window on the right we come to a living area with kitchenette, table, TV and sofa; a hallway leads to a bathroom with shower and to a double bedroom facing the back of the villa and which, if necessary, through an internal door, communicates with the bedroom with bunk beds, making these two units intercommunicating. The third entrance via a French window is located in the centre and leads to a completely independent unit, composed of a living area with kitchenette, table, TV and sofa; then a bathroom with shower and a double bedroom with French window facing the terrace in front of the entrance. All three entrances have their own terraced areas equipped with awnings or umbrellas, furnished with tables and chairs, and are ideal for breakfast, relaxing with a good book or an apéritif.
The beautiful garden surrounding the property extends over 1000 sq m and is completely fenced and entirely passable. As soon as you pass the main entrance gate you come to the handy parking area where you are immediately immersed in typical Mediterranean scrub. The garden is rich in the classic vegetation of the island of Elba with cork trees, pines and brooms which offer many shaded areas. Among this luxuriant vegetation are local wild brambles, planted in the garden and blending in well with the juniper and rosemary. There are also beds of ornamental plants, as well as various herbs that will give your dishes a Mediterranean flavour. In front of the main entrance of the villa is the tiled outdoor area, with gazebo, table and chairs and equipped with a mobile barbecue and an outdoor stainless steel stove that will welcome the guests to fully enjoy the convivial moments of the table with a background of the sound of the sea nearby. Next to the pool, a flight of stone steps across the garden leads to a small gate leading to the road to the beach of Lacona, just a few hundred metres away and reachable on foot. At the end of the driveway, next to the parking area, is a stone structure with the laundry room, a handy outdoor sink and a shower.Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.
The swimming pool is located in front of the external living area and is reached via a tiled path or up a few stone steps from the ground floor. The pool area is bordered by a beautiful classical style colonnade and elegant statues on one side and a low stone wall on the other. The irregular-shaped pool (a rectangle with a rounded side from which Roman steps lead down into the water), measuring 7 x 6.5 m with a constant depth of 1.4 m, is lined in travertine and equipped with salt purification and internal lighting. Surrounding it is the solarium area with travertine paving and furnished with sunbeds while, adjacent to the solarium, under the shade of a beautiful gazebo, is an external seating area with sofas. Next to the pool area is a changing room and an outdoor hot and cold-water shower. The pool is open from the last Saturday of April until the first Saturday in October.
