In the heart of the Chianti hills, pretty much halfway between Florence and Arezzo lies the splendid property of La Selva, an ancient stone farmhouse, now a lovingly restored villa surrounded by olive groves, meadowland and big old oak trees.
The restoration has kept the spirit of the house, respecting the original architecture with the use of handmade special materials, as the owners are convinced that the richness of a place comes from the atmosphere and the climate you breath - that and a very relaxing and comfortable living room, the silence broken only by the wood noises and complete feeling with nature.View on Google Map | map of region ]
The Villa is furnished with antique furniture and has private services for each bedroom. All around there's a wide space kept as a beautiful garden, Giardino del belvedere, with olives tress, swimming pool and amphitheatre. The spot is very secluded, because of both its location and greenery, but at the same time is very near to farms and characteristic Tuscan villages. The villa is ideal for wedding and meetings.
The property is always completely private and can host from 4 to 16 persons in rooms with en-suite bathroom.
The accommodation comprises:
Ground floor: big dining and living room with fireplace, Tv Sat, VCR, DVD/DVX player, wi- internet connection, stereo, CD player, piano and phone, two well furnished kitchens and with dishwashing machine (one with wood-fired oven), a double bedroom, a double bedroom with extra bed, a bathroom with shower and another with bath, another living area with Tv-VCR and fireplace, laundry with washing machine and music room with access to swimming pool.

The open-air private amphitheatre was designed and built in 2002 by the owner Paolo Cioncolini.
Nestled in the heart of the woods and set against the natural backdrop of spectacular oaks and junipers, the amphitheatre hosts professional performances that take place during the warmer months of the year.
These rare private events, presented for a small audience by invitation only, are usually held on weekends and do not interfere with the privacy of the house.
Our guests are invited to attend the performances and will be notified of any events that may take place during their stay.
