About Maremma & Elba
The Romans flourished for centuries in the coastal region of Maremma, leaving behind towering castles, ancient forts and much more. As in most parts of Italy, it won’t take too long to find a good glass of wine or some delectable culinary delights to whet your appetite. Maremma is famous for its vast sunflower fields, which shimmer in the summer sunlight, creating a truly unique photo opportunity.
Off the coast of Maremma lies one of Italy’s largest and most beautiful islands, Elba. Known for harbouring Napoleon during his exile in 1814, here the azure waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea lick at white-sand beaches. If this is what all exile offers, then many more would certainly opt for it. Watersport enthusiasts are spoiled for choice and those who prefer to keep their feet dry can practice their swing with a game of golf or head out on a hike or a bike.
All of our luxury villas in Elba and Maremma incorporate sunny views across the central Italian coastline, with the island of Corsica in the distance. They are also ideally placed for exploring some of Italy’s most fascinating cultural centres. Take a day-trip to Florence to discover Renaissance art awaiting at every turn, or explore the architectural curio that is the leaning Tower of Pisa. Combining country, coast and culture in exquisite balance, this is a journey into history that deserves to be lovingly recorded.
