Fattoria delle Ripalte
La Fattoria is situated on the Tenuta delle Ripalte, a promontory on Elba’s south-eastern extremity with beaches, inlets and bays cut into the impervious cliffs.
In the middle of the Tenuta stands a beautiful eighteenth century villa once home to the aristocratic Tobler- Theodoli-Quintavalle family surrounded by a large number of farmhouses that have been converted into ideal buildings for a holiday of complete relaxation, thanks to the very respectful restoration of the house typical of the Tuscan Maremma region.
It is a splendid sight, where the reddish colour of the earth (the result of centuries of mining), standing in contrast with the green foliage of the pine trees and the azure sea, creates unbelievable views.
The whole estate is a natural oasis, set in the Tuscan Archipelago National Park where you are likely to come across red partridge, pheasant, hare and wild goat.
