Isola d’Elba

Villa Poggio alle Dune

Careful renovation work has seen the old manor house of one of the prime agricultural estates on the island of Elba come fully back to life. It takes its name from the protected dune of Lacona that lies below it, separating the sea from the land.

The farmhouse dates back to the end of the 19th century and was built in a position that overlooks the Gulf of Lacona. It houses two-room suites with terraces giving fine views over the sea, while on the ground floor there is a loft on two levels with a garden also overlooking the sea.
The location is in the Tuscan Archipelago National Park, immersed in Europe’s largest marine reserve and Cetacean Sanctuary for the protection of whales.

Swimming pool

Even though the beach is very close by, our guests are free to relax in absolute peace and privacy in our brand new 13 metre by 6 metre infinity pool, which also has a 20-cm deep area for the little ones, a 1.20-metre-deep intermediate area with a whirlpool for 6 people, a cervical waterfall, and a 1.50-metre-deep area for swimming.

The pool is surrounded by a large lawn, partly shaded by maritime pines, where guests can walk barefoot, sunbathe or relax and read a book.


The villa is surrounded by more than 10 hectares of pine forests and Mediterranean scrub alternating with vineyards and crops from the organic farm called Orti di Mare.
They have been lovingly growing organic fruit and vegetables here for over 25 years now., while the agritourism facility just a stone’s throw from the Villa itself has its own food shop, bar and bistro service, as well as a children’s playground.

The centre of Lacona is just a ten-minute walk away and offers a supermarket, pharmacy, pizzerias, bars, restaurants, ice cream parlours, rotisseries, boat rentals, e-bike, car and scooter rentals, and an ATM.


For an even more satisfying and beneficial stay, guests can take advantage of relaxing and rejuvenating activities and treatments, including yoga and meditation sessions, and massages at certain times of the year.

The location is also available for group activities and residential courses given over several days. Ask us for information and we will be happy to customise what we are able to offer to meet your events’ requirement.
