We attended an evening function at the Villa recently and overall the ambiance and history of the place was amazing. Quite a stroll to the Villa itself from the Car Park but a spectacular setting. The interior seemed quite bare but the lighting effects were...More

Place is beautiful but visit is not so special as you may think Furniture are not from Napoleone premises even if original

We had a guide with us from Tauck, who told us about the house and about Napoleon's "stay" here. If you go on your own, I don't think you will learn much. The house is surprisingly small and simple; painted with pastels and flowery patterns,...More

Historic home needs some cleaning up and some signage. It's a long walk from the car park to the house and a climb once u get there.

One would expect more. Hardly any background information about Napoleon on Elba. Rooms hardly with any furniture. When walking around, one cannot stop wondering " what am I suppose to see here". Don't do it with kids, they'll be bored in no time.

Good to have been there and seen the villa, but nothing overwhelming. I would have expected a little more explanations - in English - on Napoleon and his stay on Elba.

Impressive residence, albeit quite sparse. There are 2 floors with the upper floor being visited by a winding path up hill and some stairs from the terrace. The path up to the house is a 10 minute walk from where the coach parked and the...More
