This four bedroom, three full bathroom rustic house sleeps nine and is located on the westernmost point of Napoleon's Elba in the Tuscan archipelago.* This simple, unadorned hideaway is situated in one of the wildest and more undeveloped areas of the island, in a locale known as Campo Lo Feno -- between the charming medieval village of Marciana and the larger bustling town of Marina di Campo, full of nightlife.
Eat caprese and drink Aleatico (the local wine) al fresco at the granite table with a dramatic view of the Mediterranean, Corsica and the island of Capraia. Dinner is especially beautiful as the sunsets overlooking the Mediterranean are truly breathtaking and are different every evening.
Mediterranean pine, fig trees, rosemary, oleander, and bougainvillea bushes surround and shade the house.
Two picturesque villages, Chiessi and Colle d'Orano (both 5 minutes away by car), have rock cliff beaches and there are many sand and rock beaches all around the island.
Our family has been going to the house every July and/or August since 1975 and truly wish we could visit more often. We've shared our home for many years with friends and through word-of-mouth but now feel that more people should enjoy this exquisite place that has meant everything to us for four generations.
'Able was I ere I saw Elba!'

About the owner: An Italian family that has lived and travelled all over the world.
Why the Owner Chose Marciana: We chose our house in Campo Lo Feno on Elba because it's a beautiful, remote, and untamed part of the island preserved from development and is one of the least crowded parts of the island, even in summer. While private, it is still a short drive to nightlife and great restaurants - the best of both worlds on vacation.
The sea is magnificent; there is great swimming and snorkeling, hiking, biking, and strolling through picturesque towns. There is also a lot of history: from 13th century medieval villages hidden high up in the hills (Poggio, Marciana, more) to Napoleon's two properties (Palazzo Reale in Portoferraio & Villa San Martino).
The Unique Benefits at this House: Complete peace and relaxation, morning coffee while looking out at the vast blue Mediterranean sea, lunch on the side of the house under the pine trees, watching millions of stars at night...
