The attraction of boutique hotels on the Island of Elba
What is a Boutique Hotel? This is the term used to describe hotels with their own charm, often small but with their own recognisable personality. They have an extraordinary mix of beauty and harmony in the natural or artistic environment of their surrounds, and this can also be seen in the smallest details and utilities. This attractive balance, which is based around the concept of hospitality, is difficult to achieve, but the result is these enchanting hotels, where your stay becomes a special moment.
A small jewel on the island of Elba
Small in size, but nonetheless extremely welcoming, the Hotel Ilio is an excellent representation of the concept of Boutique Hotels. Its location is surrounded by the wild and thriving nature of Capo Sant’Andrea, on the north-west coast of one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean and is reflected in the design of the furniture and its architecture, which combine the traditional construction techniques and colours of Elba with modern mastery in the Hotel Ilio, the first boutique hotel on Elba and a model of how a real “hotel de charme” should be.
A location different from any other
Every detail of the Hotel Ilio has been thought up to avoid homologation and uniformity, and the different types of room, twenty in all, some secluded in the greenery of the garden, reflect ten different philosophies Green, Garden, Oleander Forfour, Pomegranate, Sea, Sant'Andrea, Procanico, Procanico Forfour, Tuscany and Bougainvillea - to satisfy all our guests needs and wishes, with solutions suited to all tastes and the same respect of a warm welcome. There is no shortage of common areas, such as the patio, bar and library, all with their own lounge atmosphere and ideal for relaxing in different ways. Other examples of our warm hospitality are the meeting rooms and areas dedicated to art exhibitions, especially photography, often taking the beauty of the sea as the central theme.
Quality and hospitality
All the utilities and services of the Hotel Ilio are direct and open channels of communication between the hotel and its guests. An extremely cordial atmosphere, under the pasisonate management of Maurizio Testa, the owner and strong advocate of a new outlook on tourism, is the result of a long term commitment involving all of the hotel staff. This is a spirit of innovation which also includes the new restaurant, under the guidance of Giancarlo Pollidini, where the menu and typical ingredients of Elban cuisine ar recalled with new vitality.
Beautiful and wild nature
The Hotel Ilio, right on the sea on the Gulf of Sant’Andrea and at the foothills of the Capanne mountains, is the starting point for discovering the beauty of the area, where thriving nature displays beautiful colours and perfumes, to be admired in the spirit of bio-watchers and birdwatchers. The sea beds in the area are rich in life and ideal for snorkelling and diving, or pleasant excursions in kayaks, discovering the beautiful views of the reefs, or relaxing and sunbathing on the nearby beach. The mountains, with paths and itineraries for trekking and mountain biking, are also ideal for those who feel the need to try out the challenges of free climbing.
