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 naturalistic and sporting activities proposed by the Hotel Ilio at Capo Sant'Andrea will enable you to discover the other face of Elba and the Tuscan Archipelago, with surprisingly soft and wild landscapes, always strong and intense, and thriving nature.
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 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 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.
A narrow and winding road descending down towards the sea, a few houses completely immersed in thriving and unspoilt nature. Don't be surprised when you see the chestnut trees at Capo Sant'Andrea so close to the sea, highlighting the perfect balance with the mountains.
A "man-sized" island, Elba has benefitted from the comfort and tools provided by technology and civilisation without compromising its natural heritage, landscape, sea and coastlines, mountains and forests.
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.
