Boutique Hotels are small, charming hotels, with a strong identity, where everything is thought up to provide a special and personalised service. We at Elba.org offer the experience of staying in the only boutique hotel on the island of Elba, the Hotel Ilio (Capo Sant’Andrea). You can book rooms at the Hotel Ilio through our online booking service, and find out about the availability and price of rooms in real time.
The many paths covering the ancient roads on the island have for many years been a meeting point for mountain bikers, so much so that some of the professionals of this exciting sport have used them to contest the World Cup.
The natural setting of Capo Sant'Andrea is spectacular underwater as well. The submarine park of the Tuscan Archipelago hides beautiful treasures and, in between multi-coloured shoals of fish, the wrecks of ancient vessels which sank centuries ago with precious cargoes can be explored.
The many paths running up and down and across the island make Elba a real paradise for trekkers. Comfortable shoes, layered clothing, a backpack for supplies and a map of the paths: this is all you will need to explore these ancient roads.
If Elba is beautiful when seen form land, it is even more so when seen from the sea. The wide-ranging programme of excursions by boat provided by the Boutique Hotel Ilio will allow you to easily reach the most suggestive places on the island and to admire its beautiful from an unusual standpoint.
The island of Elba also has many surprises for free climbers. On the large western promontory, where the highest mountains on Elba are to be found, there are numerous rock faces to be climbed under the supervision of instructors form FASI (the Italian Free Climbing Association).
The thriving nature on Elba also enables bio watching, a new form of ecological tourism to discover the various forms of life which inhabit the evergreen forests in the National Park of the Tuscan Archipelago.
Windsurfers will certainly not get bored on Elba. The weather and sea conditions are often exactly those required for windsurfing in complete safety along the coast, which is exposed to strong winds from the north-west.
