Vedetta is situated at the top of Poggio La Forcola, 150 metres above sea-level; it is surrounded by 15 hectares of woodland and an extensive olive-grove, owned by the Family and at the disposal of Relais. At the top of our hill guests can enjoy both an incredible view and fresh sea-breezes at every hour of the day. A mere 4 kilometres away from the medieval village of Scarlino, the hillside location dominates the Gulf of Follonica, with its long, sandy beaches and fascinating coves. Nor is that all. Punta Ala is only 20 kms distant and after 40 kms you can reach Piombino where a regular ferry service takes you to visit the Island of Elba, a haven of luxuriant nature and clear, uncontaminated sea.
