Podere La Gualda Vecchia

Gualda is a hamlet of Monteverdi Marittimo (PI), not far from Sassetta (LI) and Castagneto Carducci / Bolgheri. The house is located on a hillock at about 300 metres above sea level. From the parterre, the view sweeps across the Val di Cornia, the metalliferous hills and the peaks of the Island of Elba. The property counts 9 hectares of land, most of which is composed of a wonderful forest of oaks, holm oaks, cork trees, heather, strawberry trees, mastic trees, brooms, etc. The Emotional Garden of Feather Paths, between Beauty and Simplicity, frames the entire farmhouse over an area of 7 thousand square metres and makes a stay at Gualda Vecchia an unforgettable experience.
In ten minutes by car, one has access to all services such as grocery stores, restaurants, post office, newstands, petrol stations.
Just a few kilometers away are crystal-clear beaches, (both sandy and rocky), some of the most beautiful villages in Italy, natural spas, excellent wine cellars, oil mills, archaeological sites, natural parks and many other wonders.
