Loft in Forte Stella, Built by Cosimo de' Medici in the 16th Century

Adults-only holiday home in Portoferraio
A wonderful terrace, part of the ancient walls of the Fortress, belongs to the owner of the house. It is possible to eat there, thus enjoying the most breathtaking view of the Portoferraio gulf, the harbour and Mount Capanne. Forte Stella, built in the 16th Century by Cosimo dè Medici, is connected in a few minutes walk through stairs and small streets to the village of Portoferraio. It is therefore possible to switch in few minutes from the quiet and evocative Fortress ( closed to traffic and open to residents only at night) to the lively village, full of restaurants, pubs and colourful boats.The house is very comfortable and the careful and original restauration realized by the Architect owner of the house has increased the value of the wide area in the living-room, with a dining area seating a total of 8-10 closed to the large open kitchen. The four bedrooms are located on two different levels with one bathroom on each level.Height of the rooms located in the lower floor is 2,20meters,due to the historical and environmental ties in the Fortress.For the same reason it was not possible to open windows in the night area, but circulation of air is guaranteed through a silent but efficient air conditioning system.Two beautiful beaches are located within few meters walk from house.,
Air-conditioned accommodation at this holiday home offers coffee/tea makers and a hairdryer. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and separate dining areas. Bathrooms include a shower. Housekeeping is provided on request.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on-site or nearby; fees may apply.

Tolle Lage, grosse Wohnung
Alles super, sauber, Betten bezogen bei Ankunft.Nur die Duschen sollten ersetzt werden. In der Küche sollten auch einige Dinge erneuert werden. Die Wohnung selber ist wirklich speziell.
