The space

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.

This intimate apartment is so beautifully decorated and wonderfully located in the heart of Poggio. Poggio is a romantic fairytale town with the most stunning views of Elba and Mount Capanne. It is not easily walkable to other towns or the incredible beaches Elba has to offer (unless you are a keen hiker). But enjoyed ourselves driving around by car. The town offers a bus service too. The best food I ate on my holiday were from the two restaurants in town too! Thanks Elena! I would stay again :)

Elena was very helpful before we arrived, the apartment was nice - the setting was even better, Poggio is a lovely village! The only problem was the beds - there was only bedding for one bed and the second bed (the sofa bed) was very poor quality.

We had a great time in Poggio at Alena's place! The apartment is nice and cozy with a good kitchen to cook a small meal. Poggio is amazing. It's like a village from a fairytale by night and the vibe is really easy going. If you don't have a car we suggest to rent a scooter like we did. Cruising the Island with Poggio as base is perfect. Be aware of the cats of Poggio, they are bewitched we believe. Ciao, Joris and Anna

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.

L'appartamento di Elena è piccolo ma confortevole, arredato con gusto e dotato di tutto il necessario. La location è incredibile, immerso nelle viuzze di Poggio a due passi da una vista stupenda. Ci siamo trovati molto bene. Unica nota negativa, l'assenza di lenzuola, gli ospiti devono portarsi le proprie quindi organizzatevi prima!

Le studio d'Elena est très simple mais très bien situé dans ce très beau village qu'est Poggio et permet de profiter des beautés de l'île d'Elbe. Nous avons passé un très bon séjour et très bien mangé dans les deux très bons restaurants de Poggio !

Il mio motto è "feel free". Ciò descrive la mia attitudine anche verso gli ospiti. E' per questo che non vi sono regole particolari nell'appartamento, eccetto il normale rispetto per lo stato dei luoghi che ho appena finito di restaurare con molta cura. Mi piace tanto viaggiare e non prediligo le stanze di albergo: preferisco immergermi nella realtà locale ed autentica dei luoghi. La volontà è quella di offrire la possibilità, a chi come me ama sfuggire all'asetticità di un hotel, di vivere come a casa in una delle zone più "cool" della città, con la vista di un panorama monumentale che vi toglierà il respiro, senza però rinunciare ad ogni tipo di confort.
