Island of Elba, Hotel Villa Ottone
Lovers of water sports have a wealth of options to choose from.
An Italian Federation instructor gives regular swimming lessons to adults and, free of charge, to children.
And, last but not least, waterskiing, windsurfing and canoeing are all available.
Guests wishing to spend a day on the open sea can hire sailing or motor-boats, with a skipper if required. They may also use the services of specially equipped vessels to view the Island of Elba from the sea, or visit Capraia, Giglio and Pianosa.
There are also four Sailing Centres, which offer one- or two-week courses, in the immediate vicinity of the hotel.
What’s more, the Ottone Bay is home to a Diving Centre, which is able to accompany the Hotel’s guests on dives to discover the extraordinary underwater world on request.
Reception can also arrange for guests to enjoy the thrill of a fishing trip with the professionals.
