Surrounded by oak and chestnut woods, vineyards, olive groves, and meadows where the estate’s horses graze, “La Selvaccia” is situated in the absolute peace and tranquillity of the Tuscan countryside, the perfect place to rediscover intimacy, a taste for life close to nature, and warm hospitality.
The main house and adjacent annexe, both in stone, have been renovated with great love by the owners, fully respecting the characteristics of a Tuscan farmhouse, preserving the original materials such as the terracotta floors and wood for the beautiful, wood-beamed ceilings, typical of Tuscany.
The barn adjacent to the main house is reserved exclusively for guests and has a large sunlit bedroom on the first floor. The terrace offers a splendid panoramic view of the surrounding countryside as far as Chianti and Pratomagno hills.
The rooms on the ground floor include a comfortable living room with a double sofa bed for two extra guests, a cosy dining room with a fine stone fireplace, a practical kitchen equipped with all electrical appliances, and a bathroom with shower. This floor leads directly to a well-tended garden as well as a vegetable garden where excellent produce is cultivated and available for our guests.
We have a special service for riding enthusiasts. We can stable our guests’ horses in our well-equipped stables, ready for rides that are a true journey back in time to churches, castles, and other examples of the local artistic and cultural heritage.
Restful days can be spent in the silence of the surroundings, or walking along the many footpaths that lead across country to the local hillside towns, a true journey back in time among churches, castles, and the artistic and cultural heritage of the area. One can visit the local wine producing farms, whose quality wines have achieved much sought-after recognition at wine fairs, or take a trip to the finest Tuscan historical cities and their surroundings: Siena and Arezzo about 30 km away; Florence, about an hour by car, but if preferred the train is very convenient.
The area is part of the Province of Arezzo’s Strade del Vino e dell’Olio (Wine and Oil Routes), which pass through a suggestive hillside landscape dotted with many noteworthy farmhouses. But excellent oil and wine are not all one can discover: there is also the gastronomy, the people, the hospitality, the traditions and the nature, all of which emphasise the excellent quality of life in this area.
Activities and attractions
The area offers a rich programme of possibilities for tourists and residents: local festivals and gastronomic events in the Valdambra and neighbouring areas, guided excursions in protected areas such as the Arno and Balse nature reserves, concerts, exhibitions, local produce markets and wine-tasting.
