Villa Shanti has a marvelous garden with palm trees, lemon trees, orange trees and satsuma trees. We are planning to install a jacuzzi soon (the project will be completed by April 2018) and have hammocks in our garden that invite you to relax. Since we are located close to the mountains, it's never unbearably hot. Pleasant temperatures and mild winds make up the climatic conditions in Marciana.

We have three apartments with separate entrances that are each furnished with a small kitchen with a microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge. Each apartment is additionally equipped with a small living room with a TV.

Apartment Pomonte (max. 4 persons) is roughly 40 square meters big and consists of a kitchen, a bathroom, a living room which sleeps two, and a double room that can be accessed via a staircase.

Apartment Scirocco (max. 6 persons) is roughly 60 square meters big and consists of a double room with a small terrace and bathroom, a living room with a kitchen and another bed. A second double room can be accessed via a staircase.

Apartment Mistral (max. 8 persons) is roughly 90 square meters big and consists of three double bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room with a big kitchen that sleeps two people, a big terrace and a separate entrance.

All three apartments come with a terrace, access to the garden, a separate barbecue spot and hammocks to relax in the garden.

There are two yoga shalas indoors and outdoors. The style of the Villa Shanti is Asian while the garden and the terraces have a Mediterranean flair. We have our own garden where we grow fruits and vegetables.

Location

Villa Shanti is located between Marciana Marina and Maricana Alta at the coastal road called Costarella. It's only 3 km to the sea and 1,5 km to Monte Cabane, the cable railway atop the highest mountain of the island.

Directly behind the villa, you can find a natural reserve with Fonte Napoleone, a spring with crystal clear mountain water of amazing, continuously controlled quality.

Elba is home to the most beautiful beaches in all of Italy, both rocky beaches and sandy beaches. We will take our yoga practice to the beach and enjoy the clear water, more beautiful than in the Caribbean, mild temperatures that allow for swimming until November, and romantic as well as secluded beaches.

Surrounding the villa, mountain sheep and hogs roam free and you can marvel at fields of orchids in the month May.

Food

We offer freshly made, vegetarian Italian food.

You can drink different teas and fresh water from the Napoleon spring throughout the day.

The daily breakfast will be served with fruits, cereal, bread, and handmade jams.

In the evening, we will have a barbecue or cook vegetarian meals.
