The Beach Houses
From the farm of Collecchio, a private 8 km dirt road crosses the hills of the Natural Park to reach the beautiful beach of Cala di Forno. Located only 100 meters from this beach, there are two houses completely immersed in nature: “La Casina Rosa” (The pink house) and “L’Antica Dogana” (the Ancient Customs). These two houses have been completely renovated to offer guests every comfort while they are surrounded by nature.
The two houses at Cala di Forno run on an electric generator and are furnished with gas refrigerator. There are however no dishwashers, washing machines or TV. The water comes from the well and can be used for washing and cooking, but is not drinkable.
A vacation at Cala di Forno is truly a unique experience; it allows guests to completely immerse themselves in nature. Wild boars and deer roam freely around the houses and have no fear of humans. The sun sets right in front of the houses, behind the Elba island, creating a panorama of rare beauty.
L’Antica Dogana (The Ancient Customs)
L’Antica Dogana is part of the main house which is divided into five apartments. The apartment offered is completely independent, and can house 8 to 10 people. It includes private outdoor spaces equipped with tables and benches which are covered in shade by a bamboo shed. The house is laid out on two floors; on the first floor there are two bedrooms, a living room with a double sofa bed (190x140cm), and a bathroom with shower. On the ground floor there is a third bedroom, a room with another sofa bed (for 2 people), a large kitchen and a second bathroom with shower. All of the ground floor has windowed doors that access the outdoor spaces.
La Casina Rosa (the Pink house)
