Description from the owner
Once the residence of the Marchionneschi family, the ancient villa is located in a peaceful spot a stone’s throw from Guardistallo, a medieval hillside village in the heart of the Etruscan Coast, 7 miles from sandy beaches and shady pinewoods. Recently restored, it retains its original character as a sober, elegant private residence. Villa Elena is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday in a family atmosphere, marked by unspoilt nature, sport, culture, traditional local events, and fine cuisine.

Additional Location Information
The Etruscan Coast
The Etruscan Coast is in the centre of Tuscany, between Versilia to the north and the Maremma region to the south. An area stretching for 50 miles from Livorno to Piombino, characterized by spectacular rocks and wide sandy beaches facing the Isle of Elba. Not far inland are the gently rolling Tuscan hills covered by vineyards and olive groves, a string of medieval towns and villages, and the magnificent Etruscan city of Volterra. The area is best known for olive oil and wine (two fine wines, Sassicaia and Ornellai, are produced in Bolgheri), but there is a wide range of fine local produce. The unique microclimate (mild winters and dry, breezy summers) make the Etruscan Coast the ideal place for a holiday immersed in nature with endless opportunities for relaxation, sport, culture and fine cuisine.
Originally known as Gualdistallo, this medieval hillside village, whose first human settlement dates back to 4-5,000 years BC, flourished under the Longobards, and later under the Gherardesca counts. The remains of the castle can still be admired today. In the village there are shops selling local produce, cafés, restaurants, a pharmacy and a bank. Guardistallo is an ideal base for day-trips to the most important tourist destinations in Tuscany: Florence 75 miles, Siena 50, Lucca 50, Pisa 35, San Gimignano 30, Volterra 20, Massa Marittima 45, Bolgheri 9, Casale Marittimo 1.5, spa towns (Casciana, Venturina), national parks, and the Isle of Elba. Pisa Airport (served by Ryanair) is 35 miles away.
