VISITS TO POECYLIA
Because access to the house is a private road, reserved only for owners and guests, you are kindly requested to call in advance to arrange an appointment.
THE POECYLIA IS LOCATED IN THE HEART OF AN OASIS OF NATURE.
FAR FROM THE VILLAGE OF CARLOFORTE ABOUT 8 KM OF ASPHALT ROAD, NOT ILLUMINATED, AND 1.5 KM OF DIRT ROAD, NOT ILLUMINATED, THROUGH A DENSE VEGETATION MEDITERRANEAN
The Poecylia Resort is situated in the most uncontaminated area of the island of San Pietro, From the harbour of Carloforte, take Via Roma and Via Diaz and then follow the “Strada delle Saline”, which then branches off to the right, in the direction of Carloforte Oasis. After roughly 8 km, about a 15 minute drive, you will come across a large yellow stone on the left side of the roadway, with the word “Becco” on it. From here, take the dirt road leading to Poecylia. After about 1.5 km you will meet two white columns marking the boundary of the private property Poecylia is located on. Since the driveway is private, with access allowed only to the owners and guests, we ask that you phone to arrange a visit or appointment. Most of the roads on the island are left in the natural state by the Town of Carloforte, in order to avoid impacting the environment. It is thus preferable to come in a 4×4 vehicle, such as a Fiat Panda or another car suitable for this type of road. There might be difficulties with other vehicles. A car is indispensable. The roads on the island are unlit, including the one leading to Poecylia.

Poecylia is not a hotel that boasts about the technological facilities it offers. On the contrary, it has chosen precisely not to offer them. Poecylia is made up of three building units, all inside private grounds at the disposal of guests only. The bedrooms, as well as some of the common rooms, are in two buildings on the north side, a few hundred metres, or a few minutes’ walk, from the cliffs, sea and courtyard
where breakfast is served, on the south side. Poecylia is an ideal place for meditation and relaxation, for regenerating the mind and soul. It is not the place to choose if you cannot do without technology and the usual modern amenities. The bedrooms and interiors are simple. It was a deliberate choice not to endow them with any kind of stereotypical technological comfort, such as air conditioning, heating or artificial ventilation. All the facilities that characterize the majority of hotels and standard bed and breakfasts do not exist here. The air conditioning is natural. There are no wifi systems, satellite TVs with 3000 channels or minibars in the rooms. In each living area there is a fridge and a pod coffee machine at the disposal of guests who want an early morning coffee. Each bedroom overlooks a terrace, covered by a pergola of bouganvillea, adjoining the garden. From the bedroom interiors there is no view of the sea, which guests can admire, along with a panorama of the bay, from the private terrace of some rooms, from certain areas on the main terrace and many other vantage points.
