Welcome! - the sand garden

 If you are looking for a place to relax, a true oasis of peace very near the beach, IL GIARDINO DI SABBIA (the Garden of Sand) is the place for you!

The apartments IL GIARDINO DI SABBIA enjoy a unique position. They are situated in a big park, about six thousand  square meters wide, close to Lacona beach, that is one of the most beautiful beaches of Elba island. You can reach the beach walking few meters along a path which runs between fragrant flowers and small bushes.

IL  GIARDINO DI SABBIA belongs to the National Park of the Tuscan Archipelago and preserves the typical vegetation of the dunes of Lacona, including the beautiful and precious Sand Lily (Pancratium maritimum). In spring and summer, when the flowers are in full bloom , you could see a spontaneous and natural garden lying on the sand close to the beach.

The History

The History - the sand garden

The building was created at the beginning of the 60's by Antonio Burelli, who was known as Tonino, and by his partner Edith. They were among those who first started to believe in the tourist potentiality of Elba. For years they have hosted tourists from various parts of Europe with passion, hospitality and with the intention of preserving the ecosystem of the dunes of Lacona. Today this tradition is carried on by Tony’s brother Gino and their family.
