all types of accommodation

The course participants have the opportunity to live in our Residence Villa Teresa, seat of the school. It is located within walking distance from the beaches and the center of the village of Porto Azzurro.

Most students choose Residence Villa Teresa because of the beautiful park and inviting swimming pool where you can sunbathe, read in peace, do homework and relax with friends or other students.

Among the language schools, ours is surely the only one that offers so many different types of holiday apartments for students in their own school: the course participants can live in independent apartments (one, two, three-room apartments), alone, with a companion or with friends and family. On request, accommodation in a shared apartment with other students is also possible.

ABC ELBA school also offers free accommodation service of various types of accommodation (rooms in 3-, 4-star hotels, apartments, camping…), which are constantly checked by our staff and located near the school, in Porto Azzurro and in the municipality of Capoliveri.

Apartments in the Residence Villa Teresa

Villa Teresa, built at the end of the 19th century, is located near Porto Azzurro in a green parkland with centuries-old trees. The complex has a 7×14m swimming pool and a private car park with an automatic gate inside the residence, just a few meters from the apartment. The villa retains its original charm and is equipped with the precious antique furniture of its time. The one-room apartments in the main house all have a private entrance, living room with kitchenette and private bathroom. The main house also has a shared terrace and garden.

In addition to the main house, there are also some smaller, new villas with modern facilities. The new small villas, however, all have a private forecourt.


Why do our students choose the Residence Villa Teresa?

Our residence guarantees the high quality of the apartments with all the comforts for a pleasant stay on the island of Elba and enables our students who have got to know each other at school to enjoy their vacation and to carry out the various activities together, around the pool or in the large park of the villa.

Language stay

Accommodation in a beautiful old villa. Close to the beach (Barbarossa) and right by the language school. I came with a small dog. That was not a problem and we had an ideal apartment on the ground floor. Beautiful garden and pool. Very nice landlord and teacher at school. I was completely satisfied and felt very comfortable.

Super language stay

Great place to stay at Villa Teresa. Functionally furnished apartment. Good location 10 minutes to the beach, 10 minutes to the city. Good opportunities for shopping.

The language school was very good with great teachers. Lessons in the park were phenomenal. The pool is also very nice. Again any time.

Language stay at Villa Teresa

I really liked it at Villa Teresa. The villa is beautifully situated in a park with shady old trees. The whole area is well maintained and the pool is ideal when there is not enough time to walk to the sea and swim there. There are also many nice seating areas with tables in the park. The location of the villa is ideal, because it only takes about 10 minutes on foot to get to the very pretty town of Porto Azzurro. If you want to take more time, you can take a detour along the sea and enjoy the wonderful view. The Barbarossa beach is also just under 10 minutes away on foot.

I really liked the family atmosphere. Everyone who works in and around the villa is very friendly and helpful and I was always very happy to meet the more than 80-year-old couple in the evening when the sun was no longer hot, who is still helping to maintain the park and whole area. I wish you all the best furthermore and THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

I happily recommend a stay at Villa Teresa – with a language course attendance, in which the lessons take place in the park. Wonderful!

Language course/beach vacation

Villa Teresa is beautifully situated in the middle of a park with many trees. The whole area is well maintained, the parking spaces are within the facility and are available free of charge. The apartments are very clean and functional and are located near the swimming pool. Each apartment has a terrace or a seating area where you can have breakfast or relax, for example. The beautiful Barbarossa beach and the center of Porto Azzuro can be easily reached on foot in a few minutes. Villa Teresa is a very pleasant place to live and relax. Due to the proximity to the sea, the city but also the possibility to discover the island with or without a car, Villa Teresa is an ideal starting point. The landlords are very friendly and are happy to answer any questions.

We combined the stay with a language course at Villa Teresa. The teachers were very competent, committed, warm and helpful. We also really enjoyed that the teachers went on excursions and visits with us students.

Overall, everything was right for us, we had a good time in Villa Teresa and will for sure come back!
