About the property

Perfect house + perfect setting + perfect country = perfect holiday!

Settled in the heart of the Umbrian hills, surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and sunflower fields, La Selva is a beautifully restored 14th century farmhouse with every comfort and modern amenity.

The main house comprises of master bedroom with walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom, 3 guest double bedrooms, children’s bedroom with 3 single beds (one on a mezzanine) and 2 bathrooms on the top floor; on the ground floor, a large, eat-in country kitchen, a den, additional full bathroom, 2 dining rooms, and an enormous living room that looks out to the exquisite view of hills, valleys and distant mountains.

The converted barn is equipped with double bedroom with ensuite bathroom, full kitchen, a huge family room incorporating a living room area, gym corner with weights and elliptical trainer, table tennis, a large mezzanine with TV/DVD and a full bathroom.

In addition to the oversized infinity pool is a hot-tub in the shade of a giant oak tree from where one can enjoy, year-round, the ever-changing panorama. The paved deck area between the two buildings is naturally shaded by trees so one can enjoy eating 'al fresco' even on the hottest days.

A special barbecue area, equipped with a huge wooden “picnic table” and benches enables guests to enjoy the typical local cooking tradition while watching the sun-set.

La Selva is close to famous tourist destinations such as Spoleto, Montefalco, Assisi, Perugia and Todi as well as many beautiful historical villages that each offer their own individual character. There are supermarkets, farmer’s markets, butchers and bakeries very close by as well as wonderful, authentic Umbrian restaurants.

The house is cleaned once a week. However, the housekeeper can also do additional cleaning, laundry and prepare simple meals. These services must be requested and are charged additionally.

La Selva is a haven of beauty and tranquillity from where the only sounds you will hear are those of the tractors in the fields, dogs barking in the distance or cicadas hailing the arrival of evening. While it offers a view from every point of the house, you enjoy total privacy and the sensation of being alone and at one with the beauty of the natural surroundings.

Lovely farmhouse with a lot of space and beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

The house surpassed our expectations. The house was very spacious for two large families and the poolhouse was perfect for kids to play around when it was too warm to stay in the sun. The furnishings and interior was functional and with very good taste decorated. Also the kitchen was well equipped. We loved the swimmingpool area, pool was large and deep enough, and the jacuzzi was nice.

The surrounding with the garden, all the vegetables and fruit trees were fantastic.

Thomas was very helpful, he prepared to us a fabulous dinner one night and he also arranged visits to a vineyard and olive oil factory which were very interesting.

The only small surprise for us was that the housekeeper(s) was actually staying at the poolhouse during our stay. In a way it was convenient when we needed some help, but maybe it would be good to inform guests about that. They where very unobtrusive, so in that way it did not in anyway disturb us.

We really enjoyed our stay, and I think all of us will recommend your lovely property to our friends who plan a trip to Italy. We certainly would like to come back to your lovely house if we plan a new trip to Italy.

Thank you for letting us stay at your house.

Kind regards,

Owner's Response: Thank you for your helpful review - and I am happy that our home provides as much pleasure to others as to us. Our caretakers no longer live on the property so privacy is 100%. They are, however, close at hand so can be reached for any help at any time. I hope you will visit us again at La Selva. Fiorenza
