A wonderful summer in the 16th century fortress on the Tuscan island of Capraia.

More than a decade of accurate restorations have brought back to life Fort St. George, National Monument of Architectural and Artistic Merit, after centuries of neglect. Now you can rent the whole fort during the summer to spend some truly extraordinary holidays.

Forte San Giorgio - Capraia

From the parking lot, you can climb the original stone steps or take the elevator up to an open space known as Piazzetta. This is the epicentre of the fortress from which you could directly access three of the distinct sections of the property: the wing of St. Anthony, the dining wing and the central wing. The ground floor houses the St. Anthony’s Hall, a bright and beautifully furnished living area, with frescoes, polished plaster walls and hardwood floors, and three en-suite bedrooms with bathrooms. On the first floor is an apartment, the Mistral, which includes three very spacious bedrooms with modern finishes, a large sitting room, a guest bathroom and a private terrace that offers stunning views of the city and harbour.

The many outdoor areas of Fort St. George are composed on different levels and are connected by a series of walkways, paths, ramparts, small bridges and flights of stairs. The main dining wing is flanked by two outdoor dining areas. The first, facing west, is for breakfast, while the second, facing east, is for long convivial dinners under the stars.

The Tramontana Terrace shows the first of the two pools, offering bar service and great views of the lighthouse and harbour. During the day, it is a place full of light in which to relax, while in the evening it is the perfect place for an aperitif while the sun melts behind the hills of the island. The pride of the place is given to the stainless steel and glass infinity pool, which has a hot tub area.

Access to the sea of Fort St. George is along a private path 200 meters long and 130 steps long.

Needless to talk about the magnificence of the place, the call to history and the magic of the views that you can savor from the terraces and ramparts. An unforgettable experience in the Mediterranean, a short walk from Corsica, awaits those who will be able to take this beautiful residence first.
