Additional Location Information

Villa Emilia is located on a privileged spot right in front of the beach in one of the most beautiful parts of the Italian coast, in Tuscany near Castagneto Carducci. The area offers many attractions: miles of beautiful beaches, the famous Tuscany hills and landscapes, Etruscan settlements and monuments, fine wines and food.

Siena, Firenze, Pisa, Volterra, San Gimignano and many other beautiful spots are all in the range of a one hour drive. The roads and paths near Castagneto are very peaceful and ideal for bicycling and trekking.

The two large villas on the beach were built built in 1927 by Gaddo Della Gherardesca and named after his two daughters, Emilia and Margherita. The Gherardesca is one of the oldest families in Italy; one of their ancestors is the famous Conte Ugolino, which Dante mentioned in his poem.

Villa Emilia has been completely renovated during the last 15 years and divided in luxury apartments, some of which are used by the owners while others are available for rent.
Villa Margherita is still owned by a descendant of the Gherardesca family.
