Costa dei Gabbiani, also called the coast of the herring gulls, is a green, unspoilt plateau at the south-eastern end of the island of Elba. The holiday village is located in the heart of this plateau. 450 hectares of forest cover the slopes reaching down towards the sea, where private beaches are at the disposal of the guests of Costa dei Gabbiani. This part of the coastline is 12 km long, and small beaches and bays alternate with steep cliffs. The holiday village offers a vast variety of accomodations: an old mansion, which has been transformed into a neat, small hotel, several apartments, that are located in the so-called "fattorias", and different vacation villas, which are spread throughout the stone pine forests. A beautiful 19th century mansion has been restored and equipped with furniture of this era, and is now functioning as a small hotel. Surrounded by parkland, it stands out in the peaceful expanse of fields against the backdrop of the sea. A large terrace in front of the hotel enables guests to dine al fresco. A small supermarket and a restaurant in the village provide for the welfare of the guests. A wide range of sports activities are offered: 3 tennis courts, 1 pool, horse riding, mountain bike rental, table tennis, diving courses, sailing, windsurfing and a training course for golf. A baby club hosts the children (from June until mid September), while parents enjoy their activities or relax.
