Villa Oriel has great views over the bay, is close to some very good restaurants, and is surrounded by national park. You’ll love it because of the outdoors space, the BBQ, the fully equipped kitchen, the comfy beds, spectacular pools and the lovely island of Elba. Villa Oriel is almost 400sm with a further 700sm of terracing and 2 swimming pools. It is great for families with kids, big groups, and furry friends (pets). Without doubt Villa Oriel is among the best houses available on the Island.
Villa Oriel was built for entertaining, the two pools being the focal point of the vast terrace with views over the bay to Portoferraio.
The BBQ dinning area seats 14 comfortably and is shaded by 3 giant pine trees. It sports a wood fired grill and an indispensable pizza oven. Its not often you get to cook and enjoy views of a stunningly perfect 13th century Pisan chapel and the redoubtable fortress of Volterraio. Set in mature gardens and surrounded on two sides by a protected forest the villa is secluded from the summer turmoil and becomes an island of peace within the island.
The main house has 4 double bedrooms all ensuite. Two further ensuite bedrooms are located in a detached cottage in the garden. The cottage bedrooms are not available for out of season rentals. All the bedrooms sleep 2 adults comfortably, while bedroom 1 also has a sofa bed.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a 6 burner stove, extra large oven and conventional fan oven / microwave combo. It also has separate grill and deep fryer. The specialist equipment includes a food processor, juicer and waffle maker in addition to a 4 slot toaster and separate Sandwich toaster. For the more adventurous out of season guests our slow cooker and Dutch oven may be of interest as well.
With 3 fridges and a freezer, dishwasher and washer dryer the house can cover most of your needs.
The gardens contain rosemary, sage, various types of thyme, bay trees and oregano. I hope the chillies come good in 2017.

Villa Oriel is hosted by Felice & Roberta. They do not live on site, but a 15 minute drive away. Felice is aptly named and one of the best amateur chefs I have ever encountered. They will help you with recommendations, reservations and anything else you made need. Felice is your man for wood for the BBQ, extra linens and spectacular dinners. He will do all the shopping and clean up afterwards. Well worth the fee you arrange with him!

Wood for the BBQ needs to be ordered at least a week prior to your arrival if required and paid for on arrival. Any stored cut wood on site is under going seasoning. If you use it, it will not work too well, and we will charge its replacement cost.
Villa Oriel is not a summer rental property, its our home. Its full of family memories, please respect that when you stay.

I spend most of my time in Kenya based at The Beach House. I am English, though will soon be Irish thanks to Brexit. I hardly ever go back, instead I spend the balance of my year in Italy where we have another family house the Villa Oriel.
I spent many years owning and operating nightclubs and restaurants in the UK and Europe, but now prefer a quieter time.
Life at The Beach House is very laid back, we like to think of it as 5 star beachcomber though within easy striking distance of downtown Malinda. Life on Mayungu Beach is years behind the time it's the last unspoilt beach between Malinda and Watamu and is utterly serene. A great place to write your novel.
Our other property is the Villa Oriel on the Island of Elba in the Tuscan archipelago. This is our family home stuffed with family treasures.
I hope you like them.
