Why Family Sforzini chose Guardistallo

Virgilio Marchionneschi decided to built a house suitable for the changed needs of his family and farming enterprise. With this in mind, on the 22.02.1878 he purchased the old cemetery land next to the church and rectory.

He immediately started building a beautiful mansion to use as a home, with every comfort for his family and guests.

In the basement there were ample rooms for the needs of the farm: the olive press, a big cellar, grain stores and several store-rooms for the preparation and storage of the various products, which came from the numerous farms belonging to the property.

He also set up a precious archive of documents, books and religious objects in a small chapel consecrated to Cardinal Pacelli, future pope.

The mansion was called “Villa Elena”, probably in honour of Queen Elena of Savoia.

Virgilio lived there with his wife and they were blessed with the birth of three children: Giulio, Fabio and Elena.

When he died, in 1920, his son Fabio inherited the villa, while Giulio inherited a similar villa situated in the Commune of Montescudaio.

On the death of Fabio Marchionneschi in 1938, following various successions “Villa Elena” passed to Elena Marchionneschi.

Her son, Piero Sforzini transformed the villa into a tourist structure in 1961 and nowadays the Hotel-Residence “Villa Elena” is patronized by a range of international clientele.

Family Tuscan experience

  • 4 of 5
We stayed for 2 weeks in a Type B apartment (2 bedrooms). We stayed in the main house rather than one of the annexes and it was the right decision as the high ceilings in our particular apartment which was on the first floor, helped us cope with the heat. Not all the apartments have high ceilings such as this one, so worth enquiring first.

The pool is lovely, clean and there is a separate pool for younger children. The hosts really made us feel welcome. The surrounding garden is pretty with lots of tables, chairs and barbecues. There are swings and boules for the kids to entertain themselves.

In terms of evening entertainment, there was always something going on either in Guadistallo itself, which is a charming small town, or within the grounds of the villa such as wine tasting, a communcal barbecue and on one evening a concert provided by the local police band with the music from 'La Traviata'.

Kitchen is well equipped although potential guests should note there is no oven in the properties, which would have been beneficial. There is also one coin operated washing machine on site at 5 Euros for one wash, so be prepared not to do alot of washing!

Villa is in an excellent location for trips out to cities such as Pisa and Volterra. We went to Elba from Piombino as foot passengers on the ferry for the day, which was a great trip. San Gimignano and Siena are about 1 - 2 hours away if you wish to travel further afield. But there is no direct motorway, so prepare for windy roads on route.

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed this holiday and the villa, although basic, was clean and comfortable.

Would recommend to other families.

There is internet avallability. The swimming pool and garden are large, clean and very impressive.
The family,who owens the place, showed a lot of hospitality.
We can very much recommend this place to others.

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 micro climate (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.
