This glamping site is situated on the southeast ridge of Poggio La Forcola, the nearest hill to the sea, at Scarlino in Tuscany Maremma, just in font of Elba Island. The glamping is set among the ancient trees of an olive grove and offers eight suites that are over 50 square metres in size. Each suite is furnished lovingly with great care; all include a hanging portico and an en-suite bathroom.
The property is also in the heart of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Parco Archeominerario delle Colline Metallifere. This location was given its title due to its overwhelming mountains, pristine waterfalls, and combination of desert and forest. Make sure to bring hiking shoes to explore the area!
Three of the lodges overlook the medieval town of Scarlino, with views stretching out over forests and countryside, while the other five overlook the sea and Elba and Corsica. The tents are all named after the Pleiades, the mythological sisters who are also a group of stars in the Taurus constellation and guide those at sea to safety.
". . . But if the desire for dangerous sea voyages takes you, remember that when the Pleiades, escaping the terrible power of Orion, threw themselves into the foggy sea, all the winds blew furiously. And it is no longer the right time to put ships to sea on the dark seas. . . ."
—Hesiod, Works and Days, v. 618-622
