About elena valle
I am Elena Valle and the country house Il Luogo has belonged to my family by 4 generations. Here I have also been spending my holidays since I was born...The house has been continuously restored and improved to make it more beautiful and comfortable for us and for our guests. I have used all family furniture that makes the apartments warm and cosy.. The house is also called 'Casa Ida' . Ida was the name of the first owner'swife. On the terace on the 1st floor there is a memorial tablet written by her husband to remember how she loved this place with its cypresses and how often she invited here relatives and guests
Why elena valle chose Scansano
The 2 apartments are on the ground floor and on the first floor of our country house 'Il Luogo', inside a property of 20 hectares. The house has belonged to my family for generations and here my grandfather and my father spent a long time. And now here I spend some time with my family and often organize feasts and meet friends and relatives. The house has been restored to be more and more comfortable.It is in a fine position with a view on the typical Tuscan country with small towns, olive groves and pastures. The house is in the country but also close to the small town of Scansano, easily reachable on foot (2 Km), well-known for its wine, 'Morellino di Scansano'. The apartment is the ideal place to treat oneself to a holiday that can include walks, excursions, trips, cultural and wine-gastronomical visits, relax, thermal baths and sea. From here you can reach in 20 minutes by car the famous Thermal Baths of Saturnia, open all year with sulphurous waters of 37° degrees, the sea of the Parco Naturale della Maremma, the Argentario Promontory and the beaches of Osa and Giannella. From Porto S. Stefamo there are daily boat trip to the Giglio island. Other recommended visits are:the historical and archaeological sites of Ghiaccio Forte , Pitigliano, Sorano. And then Sovana and Tarquinia with their necropolis. And also Siena, Florence and Rome.
What makes this House unique
The full name of the house is Il Luogo Casa Ida. Ida was the first owner’s wife and my father’s grand-aunt, who lived here a few years and who loved this place and this house really a lot and on the wall of the terrace on the 1st floor there is a memorial tablet the husband wrote in her memory. At an altitude of 500 meters, the house has been often restored (last renovation 2013) to become more and more comfortable. It is in a beautiful south-western position, in the sun, with a beautiful view on the typical Tuscan country with small towns, olive groves and pastures. The house is in the country but also close to the town of Scansano, easily reachable on foot (less than 2 Km), well-known for its wine, the 'Morellino di Scansano'. The house is the ideal place for all, couples, families, friends, to treat oneself to a holiday that can include relax, thermal baths, the sea, walks, excursions, trips, cultural and wine-gastronomical visits.

Podere bellissimo, accogliente e confortevole.
Abbiamo soggiornato con amici per capodanno. Posto incantevole immerso nel verde. Camere accoglienti. La casa è completa di tutto. La Sigra Elena splendida nell'accoglienza e nel suggerire indicazioni preziose su luoghi del posto. Ci ha coccolato, preoccupandosi per noi per il freddo, ovvio nel periodo, controllando personalmente le due stufe a pellet presenti. Soggiorno ottimo
Grazie Signor Andrea per la Sua recensione! Sono felice che siate stati bene durante la vostra vacanza. Spero proprio che tornerete in futuro, magari in primavera per conoscere meglio anche i dintorni o in estate quando potrete usufruire anche della piscina.
Grazie, a presto!
Sistemazione perfetta, ospitalità ottima
L'appartamento - nel quale abbiamo soggiornato in quattro - conserva intatte le caratteristiche di una casa rustica toscana "vissuta", con la sua tipica atmosfera; è spazioso, confortevole e attrezzato di tutto il necessario, nonché dotato di un ampio terrazzo panoramico. La posizione, che assicura massima tranquillità, è eccellente, sia dal punto di vista paesaggistico che per i collegamenti con il mare, le località d'arte, i borghi storici e i siti archeologici dei dintorni (nonché le vicine terme di Saturnia!) La piscina panoramica è un "plus" del già godibilissimo terreno circostante. Di solito ci spostiamo, utilizzando la casa come punto d'appoggio, ma qui per la prima volta durante la vacanza abbiamo rinunciato qualche giorno a muoverci per godere il posto, anzi "Il Luogo", che da solo merita un soggiorno. La proprietaria è estremamente disponibile, gentile e premurosa, come del resto anche i suoi collaboratori. Consigliatissimo, soprattutto a chi cerca pace, bellezza e vero relax!
Grazie della bellissima descrizione della vostra vacanza. Sono felice che siate stati bene nel mio Podere Il Luogo e abbiate potuto conoscere meglio questa parte di Maremma.
Spero che torniate presto per un'altra vacanza!! Grazie di avermi scelto per il vostro soggiorno
