Situated on the top of a hill, amidst the deep green of pine
trees and the silvery green of century-old cork-oaks, the
Relais delle Picchiaie offers a breathtaking panorama that
sweeps over the beautiful town of Portoferraio and its port
before dissolving into the bright blues of the sea.
The isolated location, well above the roads that run 500
metres below and its large multi-hued park full of oleanders,
geraniums and lavender, all make the hotel a peaceful oasis
where the tap-tapping of green woodpeckers and the song of
other birds become pleasant interruptions to the silence.
Its swimming pools, one of which is a Jacuzzi, nestling
among the palm trees and surrounded by green lawns
spotted here and there with flowerbeds of red geraniums,
are an invitation to guests to either relax on the sun beds
under the shade of large umbrellas or enjoy the benefits of
the sunshine, far away from any source of pollution in pure
and fresh air.
The very comfortable bedrooms that offer unforgettable
views from their windows are cared for in every respect, but
they are also full of surprises that are left to the guest to
discover day after day.
Fitness Centre, sightseeing trips, tennis, golf and the Marine
The Fitness Centre that offers Turkish baths, sauna,
showers, sun beds for relaxation and, above all, Ayurveda
massage by qualified Indian personnel, is the appropriate
place for regenerating after months of stress and work in the
Healthy walks along the paths that riddle the woods, cycling,
horse riding, a game of tennis in one of the courts or a
round of golf on the links nearby É there are so many
activities available for those who consider physical exercise
part of a very special holiday.
Then thereŐs the sea of the Tuscan Archipelago National Park
(an area where many of the special blue flags that denote
clean waters have been awarded), the sandy beaches, the
rocky shores and all the relative activities of a holiday by the
The restaurant and its typical Tuscan cuisine
The Restaurant, which follows the famous line of traditional
Tuscan cuisine, offers guests menus containing a selection of
original and unusual dishes prepared expertly by the young
Chef, who can rightly rival some of the most famed and
celebrated names in this field.
The cellar holds only wines produced in Tuscan vineyards,
and the highly qualified and experienced Sommelier will
advise guests so that the wine they choose will enhance the
flavour and fragrance of each dish.
The well-organised Bar inside the Hotel is supervised by a
competent, award-winning Barman, whose numerous
specialities are further distinguishing marks of a holiday that
is Ôspecial, just like youŐ.
Relais delle Picchiaie is bountiful in service, comfort and
attention. The unusual Reception Hall designed by Guido
Ciompi, one of the leading architects in modern hotel styling,
leads the way into the Relais, formerly a large villa erected
during the XIX century and around which the
accommodation area has been built.
Exclusive service and attention to detail are a vocation for
Relais delle Picchiaie. Every single necessity is given
maximum attention by very high standard service: because
every guest is a special guest.
