Elba is synonymous with Bonaparte. His residence comes slowly into view as you sail to the island onboard a luxury yacht charter. To this day, the villa affords a wonderful view of the bay and the town of Portoferraio.
Expanses of white sand, crystal-clear waters, and impressive granite cliffs: Elba welcomes those who choose a charter cruise in the Tuscan Riviera with many inlets affording hours of wonderful relaxation.
A top-rated attraction is Cala Frati, a white-shingle beach surrounded by boulders and sea stacks that can be accessed only by boat. The charming Spiaggia di Fetovaia, Cala della Cotaccia, and Acquarilli are also worth visiting. The former lays at the end of a popular trekking trail, while the second boasts attractive waters that will not disappoint snorkelers.
The island’s towns cling to steep hills looking out across beautiful panoramas. The same ones that bewitched even Napoleone Bonaparte, who had his home, Villa dei Mulini, built here, boasting imperial furnishings and luxurious private quarters in the baroque style. Elba is also home to the National Museum of Napoleonic Residences and Portoferraio’s Archaeological Museum, offering an introduction to the history of this unique island before continuing on your Tuscany luxury charter.
