CAPOBIANCO RESIDENCE

By the sea, off a Marine Reserve

At a cultural bridge between
Greek mythology, Roman ruins and Florentine Fortresses

On the main access to the Tuscan Archipelago National Park

 

Capobianco Residence is a unique apartment hotel that offers all the sea and beach amenities one has come to expect while being next to a true cultural and historical center.

All you need, when you stay with us, is a pair of … flip flops, and a snorkeling mask! Our premises is located directly in front of a Marine Reserve created in 1971 by the European Union as a Site of Community Importance http://ec.europa.eu/environment/nature/natura2000/sites_hab/index_en.htm

The close proximity to the city of Portoferraio’s heart offers a perfect alternative to a day at the beach. This 16th Century impressive citadel exceptionally preserves Etruscans and Romans ruins and spa, an entire fortification system built by the Florentine de Medici family, and Napoleon’s estate and museums. The downtown port area is also filled with wonderful restaurants and shops of all sorts.

Our Marine Reserve View hotel comes with private garden facilities and reserved shaded parking areas, flat-screen TVs with Italian/International cable channels as well as free wireless Internet access.
The CapoBianco Residence has ten apartments, and the property, whose architecture reminds of a panoramic, informal, comfortable and large Tuscan villa surrounded by a Mediterranean garden, lies immediately behind the “Padulella” beach.

There are other similar beaches at close reach, surrounded by high, sheer white cliffs. They all have amazingly white pebbles, whose origin is narrated in Greek mythology, supposedly linked to the Argonauts’s legend, mentioned by Homer and Apollonius of Rhodes.
