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.

Very nice base for exploring Tuscany

  • 5 of 5
This was a great location for exploring some of Tuscany - Pisa, Voltera, Sienna were all in driving distance for a day out although Florence and Chiantishire would be a step further than a day trip. Great beaches near by although the pool and area is good.

The 1 bed apartment was great for 2 adults and I would recommend a friend to stay here. The shower was good and hot although the screen was broken. Plenty of towels and we asked for an extra set of sheets. The hairdryer is one of the wall mounted jobs. They provided cleaning materials and washing up liquid.

The hostess is truly charming and brings a warm Italian ambiance to all things.

You need a car unless you just want to make use of the pool, table tennis and barbeques and eat out locally in Guardistallo.

Prima für einen schönen Familienurlaub

  • 5 of 5
Bei der Auswahl der Ferienwohnung haben uns die Beschreibung und die Fotos zur Villa Elena überzeugt.
Und siehe da, vor Ort war dann auch alles so wie dargestellt - die Fotos übertreiben nicht :-)

Es ist eine herrliche alte Villa in herrschaftlichem Stil mit hohen Decken und großen Räumen. Unsere Ferienwohnung bot viel Platz und wir hatten auch einen kleinen Terassenplatz davor.
Der Garten und die Anlagen (Kinderspielplatz, Pool, Boccia-Bahn, Tischkicker...) sind gepflegt und haben uns allen viel Spaß bereitet. Auch zum Meer ist es nicht weit. Auch wenn es etwas weiter ist als Cecina, sind wir immer nach Marina Di Bibbona gefahren, dort ist der Strand viel schöner (keine Steine).

Die Atmosphäre auf der Anlage war sehr angenehm und insbesondere war die Chefin vor Ort ausgesprochen freundlich und hilfsbereit. Sie spricht sogar sehr gut deutsch und englisch.

Zu der Zeit, in der wir da waren, waren einige Festivitäten im Dorf, was teilweise sehr schön anzusehen war. Allerdings war dadurch abends die Luft mit einer entsprechenden Geräuchskulisse erfüllt.

Alles in Allem hatten wir einen rundum schönen Urlaub auch noch unterstützt von 14 Sonnentagen :-)

Toskana mit Herz und Seele für Leib und Seele

  • 5 of 5
Ich versuche mich kurz zu fassen, da keiner gerne lange Bewertungen liest. Aber das ist bei so vielen positiven Aspekten gar nicht so einfach. Meine Freundin und ich verbrachten 1 Woche in Guardistallo (ca. 1500 Einwohner) in der Villa Elena. Wir wohnten in einer Wohnung direkt am Haupthaus. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und liebevoll herrschaftlich eingerichtet. Hohe Decken, super sauberes Bad und ein bequemes Bett waren für mich die Highlights. Außerdem gehörte zu der Wohnung eine große Terasse mit schöner Sicht über die nahegelegenen Hügel und die etruskische Küste. Leider waren viele Tage in unserem Urlaub verregnet. Das soll aber die Unterkunft nicht schmälern, da man auch an solchen Tagen auf der überdachten Terrasse entspannen kann oder im Unterstand gegeneinander ein Kickerturnier bzw. Tischtennis austragen kann.
Wir fanden es auch sehr angenehm einen zentralen Anlaufpunkt zu haben von dem aus man zu Ausflügen nach Lucca (sehr süß; 1 h 15 min Autofahrt), Florenz (beeindruckend, 1 h 30 min), Siena, in die Weinberge des Chiantis oder zum nahegelegenden Strand (z.B. in Cecina oder Vada) fahren konnte. Wer noch nie in der Toskana war und eher aus dem Flachland kommt, muss sich ein wenig an die Serpentinen dort gewöhnen. Die sind nicht ohne.
Weitere Vorzüge des Geländes des Villa Elena waren die schöne Poolterasse, der liebevoll angelegte Garten und für mich als Katzenliebhaber die sehr süßen rumstreunenen Katzen des Hauses. Das leitende Ehepaar ist sehr nett, zuvorkommend und sprachlich sehr begabt. (Italienisch, Englisch und Deutsch fließend).

Meine Freundin und ich danken für ne schöne Woche.

Danke schön für 2 schöne Wochen

  • 5 of 5
Im Juni 2009 haben meine Frau und ich zwei Wochen Urlaub in einer 2-Zimmer Fewo im Herrenhaus verbracht. Wir bestätigen, das die Bilder im Inserat nicht übertreiben. Es sah dort wirklich so aus.
Die ruhig gelegene Anlage wird ausgezeichnet von den Vermietern gepflegt. Wir haben uns dort fast jeden 2. Tag erholt.
Abends hat man einen schönen Blick auf das 10 km entfernte, am Meer gelegene Städtchen Cecina.
Die Wohnung beeindruckte durch die hohen Räume (ca. 5m) und dicken Wände. Durch die im Dorf fast immer wehende Brise bleibt es in den Räumen herrlich kühl, obwohl es in der ersten Woche tagsüber draussen mehr als 30° warm im Schatten wurde.
Die immer freundliche, hilfsbereite Vermieterin gab super Tips für Ausflüge und Restaurants.
Von dem auf einem Hügel gelegenen Ferienort aus sind viele Sehenswürdigkeiten der Toskana gut zu erreichen.
- Fahren Sie doch mal ins nahe gelegene Bolgherie oder nach Voltera. Auf den Wegen dort hin erleben Sie die Toskana, wie sie in den Prospekten und Büchern gezeigt wird.
Das ca. 1400 Einwohner zählende kleine Dorf hat ausreichend Möglichkeiten zum Einkauf und mehrere Restaurants. Unser Favorit (ein Tip von der Viermieterin): Die Mini-Pizza La Fonda mit einem Koch, der herrliche Fischgerichte zaubert.

Fazit: Wir können die Villa nur positiv bewerten. Rollstuhlfahrern und gehbehinderte Menschen werden in unserer Fewo wohl zurecht kommen (Zugänge ohne Stufen), haben aber, wie immer in hügeligen Gegenden, mehr Mühe. Die ca. 200 Meter bis in die Dorfmitte lässt nichtsportliche Menschen schon kräftig atmen.
PS: Im Dorf gibt es leckeren Wein und gutes Olivenöl.

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.
