WELCOME TO VILLA CHELUCCI  |  IL CASTELLO DI GUALDO

Tuscany Holiday Rental Villa Chelucci is the perfect place for your vacation in Versilia. A few minutes from the sea, located in a medieval village, a perfect location to relax and enjoy Tuscany.

Along the road from Pieve a Elici leads to Freddana you reach Gualdo. Its name comes from “Waldum” term of German origin meaning “forest privileged”.
The country has preserved its medieval structure and austerity of ancient land. Almost all the houses, valuable evidence of the past, are in stone, with windows and doors of small dimensions; each balcony is softened by lively color of the flowers and along walls open the mouths of ovens. Walking its streets is like stepping back in time, losing the feeling of this. Silence prevails sovereign and old walls are the most vivid testimony of the glorious history of this country.

The history of Gualdo

The territory of Gualdo was the theme of the border between two major factions in the year 1000 fought the foothill areas behind the Lake Massaciuccoli: the Montemagni, Lords of Montemagno and allied with Pisa, and the powerful canons of San Martino di Lucca, owners of a long possession that went from Massarosa to the brook Freddana and obviously allies of Lucca.

This hilly and forested was probably inhabited by scattered farms since the year 1000, but the first official document attesting to the presence, probably because it is made in the country with its own church dates back to the conclusion of the dispute between the Canons and Montemagni the end of the tenth century, the dispute resolved by the direct intervention of the Countess Matilde who even was in place and, after obtaining the support of the pope, he managed to impose a boundary that still divides the town of Massarosa from that of Camaiore.

The importance of this border village, for politicians it can be read in the fact that it had already in 1266 by the Canons, real founders of the area, a type of administration almost equal between the Canons themselves and represented the community Gualdo. The “Constitutum” in 1266 has survived intact and preserved in the Archbishop of Lucca, it is a document very advanced for its time: just think t

hat was the first time we are not talking about the death penalty but every mistake is translated into money, just because life in this area was to be critical and the rest of the money did not have to be a certain common good.

The country was bound, by the ecclesiastical point of view, the Pieve a Elici and this close contact remained for centuries, until Napoleon imposed the cancellation of these constraints. Only then, with

the nineteenth century, the village comes from the domain of the canons in 1871 to become one of the villages of the municipality of Massarosa who was born in that year. The country has maintained its medieval urban layout of the mold with its narrow and steep in the vital components which are promoted, not old buildings, but old lodgings now largely restored and brought closer to current needs but always maintaining the characteristic structures in stone and wood, everything always adorned with flowers that look more like one of the things by the villagers.

Claritas est etiam processus dynamicus, qui sequitur mutationem consuetudium lectorum. Mirum est notare quam littera gothica, quam nunc putamus parum claram.
