Hotel Bellavista: hotel at Sant'Andrea » description
The Bellavista Hotel, on the north-west coast of the Island of Elba, is situated at Sant'Andrea, one of the most beautiful and quiet areas of the island and enjoys a beautiful view over the sea.
The hotel, set in an area of outstanding natural beauty of the typical mediterranean countryside, is absolutely ideal for a relaxing and peaceful holiday.
From the garden, or from the balconies, you can admire breathtaking sunsets refracting over the mountains of Corsica in the distance and, on a clear day it is possible to see the islands of Capraia and Gorgona and even the coastline of mainland Tuscany.
Over a small footpath departing directly from the hotel, you can reach the famous cliffs called "Le Marine"; here in its rocky inlets and creeks you can enjoy the sun and the sea in absolute tranquillity. The "Formiche della Zanca" (La Zanca's Ants) can be seen from here: these are three semi-submerged rocks where you can often observe shoals of local mediterranean fishes, crabs and other typical sea fauna of this part of the world.
The Bellavista Hotel also offers its guests the service of a little bar, a television lounge, free private parking and a place for motorcycles and mountain bikes.
The Hotel also offers Bed & Breakfast. Our complete, both sweet and savoury, buffet breakfast, consisting of some organic products, is served in our dining room that overlooks the breathtaking view of the Gulf of Sant'Andrea. Choose from Parma Ham, "Finocchiona" (type of salame enhanced/enriched by fennel), salame, various cheeses, as well as different types of muesli and yoghurts, fresh fruit, honey ... and much more.
From the lounge overlooking the sea, you can admire some unforgettable sunset, you can watch television or you can simply spend your time reading, playing chess or other board games. On the outer terraces, you can just relax in the sun and enjoy the splendid views.
There is a comfortable family atmosphere because the owners themselves are managing the hotel since 1967.
