Ortano is a small, authentic village, situated right on the edge of a magnificent beach, close to Rio Marina, a charming town on the Island of Elba, just off the coast of Tuscany. Rio Marina is set on the edge of a little creek. It is surrounded by hills, whose red, the colour of the earth, contrasts with the deep blue of the sky and the greenery of a wild and, as yet, unspoiled nature. It is also a pleasant, family sea-side resort, with a lovely little fishing port. Ortano is ideally situated to enjoy the beauty of the beaches of theIsland of Elba and as a starting point for exploring the East coast of this Italian island, at the same time as enjoying the peace and quiet of a little Tuscan village.
