“Magical Wedding/Stay in Beautiful Toscana with Family & Friends.”
Reviewed 8 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

people found this review helpful

It is hard to put into words what a special experience our wedding was at La Selva. We spent a full week at the villa with our family and friends. Our additional wedding guests stayed at nearby villas or the (excellent, beautiful) Fontebussi hotel recommended by Francesco. Our week was filled with delicious dinners prepared at La Selva by Maria and on one evening, Francesco's beautiful mother, Anna.

Our magical experience was echoed by our friends and family (we are still talking about it a month later!!!). Not only are Francesco and his family very kind and a pleasure to spend time with, they are professional and extremely knowledgeable about the history of the surrounding area and how to plan a wedding!

Our wedding day went by seamlessly and Francesco provided excellent recommendations for catering (everyone talked about how delicious the food was), flowers (oh my how we could go on about the flowers), a great DJ and more. We had the wedding of our dreams and thank Francesco and his family for making it all possible.

Aside from our wedding, La Selva is a beautiful, and we'll it again--a magical place to stay. Each morning we would walk up to the small town of Montegonzi, and enjoy the beautiful, picturesque views along the way. The surrounding area is a perfect location; a couple times we took the train into Florence--only 27 minutes, we went wine tasting, frequented the markets....we could go on and on....

Simply put, we give La Selva our highest recommendation and look forward to returning again with my family and friends.

“Unforgettable week with friends and a perfect wedding to top it off!”
Reviewed 27 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

My wife and I found this property on airbnb. After spending some time speaking with Francesco we decided to book the venue for our wedding. Pulling up to the property after months of planning was incredible. It was more beautiful then we could have imagined. Francesco was so helpful the entire time, from wedding planning, to grocery shopping before our arrival, recommendations for day trips and so much more, we could not have done this without him. The week we spent with friends on the property was unforgettable, so many beautiful days by the pool leading into amazing nights. The property is so magnificent and you truly are secluded from the outside world! Our wedding day went off without a hitch thanks to Francesco's help. I can not thank him enough for this fantastic vacation and wedding!

“An out of this world experience”
Reviewed 22 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Wow, just wow. When you pull up to the house it takes your breath away. Francesco was there waiting for us, ready to show us around and scan passports. He was so gracious, willing to answer all our questions at dinner and correct our broken phrases. When you walked inside, the smells of Maria's delicious cooking make your stomach growl. Our host was even willing to travel back down to Montevarchi with my grandfather to show him the best way to the train station. His parents joined us for dinner, and we had a lovely spread before us. Pesto, potatoes, salad, roasted pork, it just kept coming! We went out to admire the stars, the view of the mountainside was amazing. I really love the layout of the house, and his father has sprinkled his artwork around giving it a personal touch. I would suggest this to any large family trip or destination wedding.

“Fulfilled all our dreams”
Reviewed 4 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

85 people descended on La Selva on 25.08.2016 for the marriage of my daughter Kat and her Fiancé Steve.
Kat had planned it with Francesco but never visited La Selva.
From the moment 9 of us arrived like the Von Trapp family, children and. Pool full of inflatables!!!, we knew it would be special.
An amazing family welcome, a delicious meal cooked by Maria, who tidied our clutter daily, but above all the spirituality of La Selva.
Because of this kat and Steves wedding was memorable. It's ambience embraced the relaxed, fun wedding they both wanted. All guests agreed. Perfection, so thank you Francesco. Paolo and family for facilitating everyone's dreams.
Everyone involved surpassed our expectations.
All we hear now is when is the reunion

“Amazing Tuscan Experience”
Reviewed 3 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We were married at La Selva on August 6th, 2016. We thank our host Francesco from the bottom of our hearts for an incredible week for ourselves and our families. He and his family and staff went above and beyond as a host and everything was perfect.

La Selva is the most beautiful place to be for a week of authentic Tuscan lifestyle and relaxation. The grounds are huge, private, beautiful and inspiring. The villa is like your home you wish you could come back to all the time.

Our week at La Selva, our wedding, and the pizza / pool party on the final day were all incredible. You really feel part of the place and welcomed into being there.

All this was made possible by Francesco, his beautiful villa in the Tuscan countryside, and his great care and attention to detail and generosity of spirit.

A big thank you and we hope to return to La Selva one day soon!

We went to "La Selva" to get married end june 2016. We got a warm-hearted welcome by Francesco and his family und were overwhelmed of the place. The 2 houses, the garden, the pool... wonderful. Francesco although organized all the wedding-paperworks weeks before with the registry office, and later the absolute fantastic catering too. Thank you very much Francesco, for this wonderful week at your unique place...

We stayed at La Selva with our families for a week and had a pizza and open mic night on the Friday and our wedding on the Saturday.

Words are not enough, what a special location, loved by every one of our guests and what a great guy Francesco is. He was a great help throughout the planning and we are proud to call him a great friend after.

Don't hesitate to book, I hope we will return in the future but for now we have fantastic memories.
