l’hotel Aurora est situé à l’ouest d’Elbe, dans un endroit tranquille, face à la Corse, donc emplacement idéal si vous ne voulez pas être dans la foule. Notre chambre n’était pas très grande, mais avec la climatisation, beaucoup de rangement et propre. Nous avions une terrasse et nous pouvions faire sécher notre linge. Le petit déjeuner est très bon, en terrasse face à la mer, avec des produits salés, ce qui n’est pas toujours le cas lors des petits déjeuners en Italie. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié les tartes et gâteaux maison. Il y a par ailleurs un parking privatif quelques mètres plus loin. Enfin, et avant tout, l’accueil de Giorgio est extraordinaire et nous nous sommes sentis comme des amis ou des membres de la famille. par ailleurs nous avons beaucoup apprécié le fait d’avoir des coupons de réduction sur une dizaine de restaurants partenaires dans l’île.
to the Elba Island
The Hotel Aurora in Chiessi on the west coast of Elba island was in April 1960 opened by Ettore Piacentini, one of the first who saw the future of tourism for the small town of Chiessi, in that time was just rennovated the road for cars. The hotel looks back on a 50-year history. It was always managed by the Piacentini family. The Hotel Aurora was renovated several times, most recently in 1999/2000, which changed the hotel as you see it today. Today, the hotel offers comfortable rooms, ideal for couples or families looking to spend their holidays on the island of Elba, in a corner of paradise away from the echoes of mass tourism!
Noteworthy are the beautiful pictures in the main room near the hall, with refined elegance by artist Mimma Cuffaro Ferruzzi, daughter of the famous sculptor and architect from Sicily Paolo Ferruzzi, whose aim was to give a rustic and elegant touch to the ambience.
It is located directly on the sea and is divided into four buildings, the central body consists of the reception, the main room, the bar with terrace overlooking the sea, where guests can enjoy breakfast while watching the sea!
All the rooms are fully air-conditioned if necessary and the whole structure overlooks the sea in front. The island of Corsica with the high mountains is usually clearly visible in spring and autumn. With a little luck you can watch dolphins in the small bay.
Above is a terrace where you can admire the bay and the enchanting sunsets sipping an aperitif!
Opposite is the first of the three dependencies that emerged from one of the first wine cellars of the village in the 900 BC. Right next to the central building is the second annex directly below the third, which is surrounded by the garden, and if you go down some stairs, you can already take a dip in the transparent water.
The rooms of Hotel Aurora
The Hotel Aurora offers 16 rooms spread over three branches. All rooms at the hotel are simply furnished and have a private bathroom with a shower. Some of them are wider, they have the option to add the third and fourth bed.
Lovely family run hotel. Great quiet location. Excellent location for watching the sun set over Corsica.
Would stay again.
My wife and I are currently travelling around Tuscany from our home in Melbourne. We have have found our stay at Aurora to be an extremely positive experience. The room is spotlessly clean with a cleaner visiting our room every day, and a great view out to sea. The breakfast is also excellent and comprehensive, stocked with local produce and home made goodies and always delivered with a friendly service by George and his team. I give this hotel my strongest recommendation. Well done to all the staff at Hotel Aurora.
Excellent seaside hotel. Great service, wonderful breakfast. Quiet and peaceful in May.
Little gem on a wonderful island. The location of the hotel is right in-front of a beautiful beach in a quiet village, you have to the beach by foot, rooms are clean, staff are amazing, breakfast is decent and internet is fast.
Nella dolcezza della natura, tra i suoi suoni amici…
par di essere in famiglia;
curatezza in tutto, nella semplicità gusti i sapori, i profumi…
e gli sguardi amici sono contorno nella naturalezza del tutto.
