Approaching Portoferraio, the ferry steams along the coastline ranging from Cavo to the harbour, one of the wildest part of the Island.
Passing over Cala Mandriola and Cala dell’Inferno, in between the peaks of Nisporto and Nisportino, you can see a pink villa which dominates the inlet like a fortification.
The Residence La Cota Quinta was built in the Dolce Vita years by some roman movie directors, who found there their private oasis.
The Villa is settled over the still existing walls of an ancient furnace. You can enjoy the beautiful sight of the vast maritime panorama from the balconies and the commonal terraces.
La Cota Quinta is located on one less manipulated coastline of the Elba Island and is framed by uncontaminated greenery of Mediterranean maquis of the National Park of Tuscan archipelago.
