Torre Campese is located on a rock surrounded by crystalline water, framed by ancient walls with a medieval walkway bridge connecting to the rest of the island.
As the largest circular tower in the Tyrrhenian sea, it was used to sight Moorish pirates, having been built for that purpose in 1600 by Ferdinando de Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany. The tower could host a garrison for the defence of the island. It was the garrison’s job to warn the island population of any impending danger from the sea by letting of large fireworks from the tower heights.
The tower has been privately owned since the early twentieth century, and its owners have worked to ensure that it maintains its past aura. The site overlooks the Campese bay, which boasts to be the most beautiful of the island’s beaches, ending on the opposite side of the bay with a rock stack . With its ample garden, its easy access to the sea via rock and beach and its breathtaking sunsets Torre Campese is an ideal location for relaxing and enjoying the sea, immersed in an atmosphere of peace and tranquility.
