The Sud Est Residence is fortunate to be a two minutes drive from the splendid village of Porto Azzurro, considered “The sitting-room of Elba”.
Its square, which is located directly by the sea, is one of the most beautiful in Italy and in summer, with its colorful shops, street artists, concerts, craft stalls and local products, it is packed with people who like to stroll in the evening among its characteristic streets and along the harbor.
The ancient “Porto Longone” was founded back in the seventeenth century with the idea of becoming a fortification capable of defending the whole territory, and confirming this is there is the still clearly visible, famous “Forte San Giacomo“, which became, around the end of the 1800s, a prison of international fame.
Among the most beautiful beaches of Porto Azzurro we find those of Barbarossa, Reale and Terra Nera, but even the small “Pianotta” has nothing to be envious of the other three.
In addition to its undoubted charm, one of the things to appreciate most of this seaside village is to see the children playing freely and happily in its square: in fact, in summer, every evening from 8 p.m, the promenade and the square by the port become a pedestrian area, allowing everyone, parents and children, to spend pleasant evenings, in tranquillity and security.
