Located on the beautiful sandy bay of Biodola, only 8 km from Portoferraio, the hotel Hermitage enjoys an enviable and exclusive location. Set like a jewel in the green hills and closed on two sides by low cliffs, the hotel is situated directly on one of the most beautiful beaches of the island. Built in the early fifties at the behest of Genoese nobleman Paolo de Ferrari, who, completely enchanted by the beauty of this crystal clear sea and the charm of his nature, decided to build in this part of Tuscan coast, a luxury hotel.
This modern structure of the Hotel Hermitage is surrounded by a lush park, full of the colours and the scents that characterise the Mediterranean macchia. Composed of a collection of cottages overlooking the golden beach of Biodola, the hotel comprises a main building where are located the various departments, numerous lounges and a part of the rooms. The other rooms are embedded in the park and enjoy an independent and quiet position. It is a charming hotel renowned for its high service quality, but especially for its great care in meeting all the needs of its guests. Ideal for families as well as for young couples, offers the best vacation for people seeking relaxation and tranquillity but also dynamic sports activities.
The Hermitage disposes of 117 rooms located in small cottages surrounded by 50 acres of private park. They are divided into classic or (classic ) sea view rooms depending on the size and exposure. There are also Junior Suites and suites offering sea view, which are more spacious, feature elegant furnishings and a Jacuzzi. All accommodations are tastefully furnished in Mediterranean style and equipped with all modern comforts (ADSL connection, telephone, satellite / cable TV, mini-bar, safe, air conditioning).
The modern aesthetic centre of the hotel arises from the agreement with Intégrée, leader in the field of beauty and wellness treatments. Offers a wide range of treatments: massage with aromatherapy, sauna, sun shower, pressure, and exclusive beauty or healing treatments and relaxing massages for the body. Its professional staff is available to study the possibility of wellness programs customized to satisfy the demands of its guests. Ideal place for pleasant moments of relaxation, where guests can physically and spiritually regenerate.
The hotel disposes of three restaurants: the “Hermitage” restaurant that stands out for its refined cuisine based on the traditional Italian dishes and the careful selection of fine Tuscan wines. “Fuoco di Bosco”, grill restaurant and pizzeria in the pool that in July and August proposes nice Saturday night dinners with barbecue and live music. Then there are the “La Ghiotta”, an informal beach restaurant which offers the typical dishes of the island of Elba and the “Peter Pan”, especially created for children (aged 2 to 12 years), with special menus and with particular attention to the entertainment of the young guests. Meals for children 0-2 years are not included in the price of the cot: to pay extra on spot.
