Ancient Rome had its hands full with Tuscany, which long opposed its domination. In the end, Rome conquered the Etruscan world but Tuscany maintains its identity within Italy: the land of the Renaissance, of music, of the arts, where even Nature submitted itself to harmony over the centuries. Everywhere in the world, Tuscany is as well known as Italy. What is often overlooked is that Tuscany also has a coast of over 500km and an archipelago of seven islands, of which Elba is only the best known. It is in this intrinsically Mediterranean setting that Poggio ai Santi has slowly conquered its unique place as a quality hotel. Positioned somewhere between the Wine Relais and the Boutique Hotel, Poggio ai Santi allows visitors to satisfy their desire for escape, for authenticity, and for discovering one of the richest heritages of humanity.
