The Apartment is situated in the historical part of Poggio, in between the old streets and chestnut trees, on a hill that overlooks the sea next to Marciana Marina (5 km). From there one can easily get to the clean waters of S. Andrea (10 km – photo) or go snorkelling in Pomonte to explore the shipwrecked Elviscot. One can also enjoy a ride in a sailing boat, the boats leave daily from the Port of Marciana, in the evening one can have an aperitivo or browse the various shop fronts and market stalls in the multicoloured centre of Marciana Marina.
Poggio is also very well known for one of the most famous restaurants on the island called “ Publius “. Its an old restaurant that hosts a wonderful tradition of mixing the recipes of the neighbouring mountains with those of the sea.
Here one can live a different kind of experience on the island of Elba, where one breathes the fresh air of the mountains whilst looking at the sea. There's fresh mineral water that flows naturally from the mountains which can be drunk at Napolean's fountain, after which one can depart on a trekking adventure to the nearest mountains, Capanne and Perone. One can also head off into the woods to look for wild mushrooms and chestnuts, or simply relax in the historical centre waiting for the sun to set.
The Apartment has been recently refurbished with all the best materials. It is ideal for a couple but can also accommodate two couples. The sofa turns into a double bed and there is another double bed upstairs.
It won't take much before you start feeling that this is your second home.
Elena was Fantastic informative and polite. The apartment is essentially one room, but compact with kitchen, sofa tv and dining area. It has absolutely everything a young couple would need, but for an elderly couple make sure you are nimble enough to manage the ladder to the bed bunk. The location is by far the best thing about the apartment. Poggio is on the top of a mountain with stunning views -it is the blissfull Italian town everyone imagines, without the tourists(though we went at a quiet time). You will need your own transport and beware nearly everyone is Italian, a phrase book is essential and this is not the place for you if you like a buzzing atmosphere and mingling with other tourists. But for hikes, exploring coves beaches and local true good food and wine, it is perfect.
