The surroundings

The small village of Patresi which belongs to the municipality of Marciana is located right in the National Park of the Tuscan Archipelago ( It is surrounded by fragrant Mediterranean Macchia and offers stunning views of the clear sea, the rocky coastline and Corsica. Both beaches are just 500 metres away.


Polveraia is a quiet pebbled beach with crystal-clear water and cliffs. It can be reached on a footpath.
The beach at Patresi Mare has a small mole and is
surrounded by characteristic cliffs and the rocky
coastline. The sunsets here are unforgettable. A sandy beach can be found just a short drive away (2 km) in the small village of St. Andrea.


Apart from the activities at the seaside, Elba offers great opportunities for excursions and bike tours, an invitation to discover its beautiful sights. From Patresi you can walk amongst chestnut groves to the pilgrimage church Santuario della Madonna del Monte and continue to reach the island’s highest mountain Monte Capanne (1.019 metres). From its peak you have a stunning view over the group of islands of the archipelago.
