Old-world elegance at an idyllic five-star hideaway with a private beach on an island in Tuscany - includes breakfast, dinner on one evening and a treatment discount

Unwind in the pristine natural surroundings of Elba Island, cast adrift from mainland Tuscany, the perfect setting to escape completely from the stresses of daily life. The five-star Hotel Villa Ottone embodies timeless charm and shows off incredible seafront views. With a private beach, gym, wellness centre and outdoor pool, this 19th-century villa is surrounded by lush gardens and transports you back to the glamour of 1930s Italy.

Enjoy long afternoons and exquisite sunsets at the scenic tavern and pool restaurants, or slip away for an aperitif in the villa bar beneath original fresco ceilings. If you're keen to explore, take a stroll through the pretty grounds surrounding the hotel, which extend all the way down to the beach. Then, take advantage of the full beach service with umbrella, sun chairs and towels included. The hotel carries a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.


  • At 10 kilometres from the mainland, Elba is the largest island in the Tuscan Archipelago and home to mountain ranges and an exquisite coastline. After wandering around the beautiful botanical parkland surrounding the hotel, consider hiring a yacht to survey the island in style. Villa Ottone is a 15-minute drive round the coast from Portoferraio, where you can visit one of Napoleon's two villas on the island, where he lived in exile.
