The Laconella campsite, on the Punta Contessa promontory on the right of the Lacona beach, is in the centre of the southern part of the Island of Elba.
How to reach Laconella Campsite
: Portoferraio receives almost all the ferries arriving from the mainland. Once landed, take the road out of the city in the direction of Porto Azzurro. This is a dual carriageway which crosses several roundabouts. At the last roundabout (at the end of the dual carriageway), take the road for Porto Azzurro, and after about 1 km (at the first set of traffic lights) you mau choose between the following two routes:
From Cavo and Rio Marina
- Lacona via Colle Reciso: this is the shortest route, but could prove difficult for large vehicles as it is quite steep. It is suitable only for motorcycles, cars, campers or medium-sized caravans (approx. 5 mt).
If you choose this route, at the traffic lights turn right in the direction of Lacona-Colle Reciso. Continue along this road (at the beginning it climbs up to the top of the pass and then descends to the sea) until the end of the descent, where the town of Lacona begins. In front of you there is a mini-market and a bank; here turn right and follow this minor road to the end, towards Marina di Campo. After 300 metres, in fact, there is a signpost indicating 'Campeggio Laconella'.
- Lacona via the provincial road toward Porto Azzurro: at the traffic lights, go straight on towards Porto Azzurro. After a few kilometres, you will come to the signpost on the right pointing towards Lacona. Take this road as far as Lacona. From Lacona, continue along the provincial road leading out of the town, then after 300 mt turn left into the road leading to 'Campeggio Laconella'.
: some ferries land at Cavo and Rio Marina. From here, take the provincial road towards Porto Azzurro and than toward Portoferraio. Turn left at the junction in the direction of Lacona. From Lacona, continue along the provincial road leading out of the town, then after 300 mt turn left into the road leading to 'Campeggio Laconella'.
