“Excellent place to discover the beauty of Tuscany”

Me, my wife and our 2 years old son had definitely our best holiday ever. That was our first Tuscany experience, but will not be the last. Volterra is a small very nice traditional town situated on top of a hill from where you have the best views you can ever imagine. Casa Selci is exactly near one of the gates of the town so the access is very easy. The house is very traditional, with spacious bedrooms all in traditional style - very appropriate for people who are looking to feel the real spirit of Tuscany. I don't recommend it to people who are looking for ultimate luxury as the whole idea is different. The garden in front of the house is absolutely stunning. Everything is completely safe and very appropriate for young children. The pool is also safe for young kids as it's raised so they can't fall in. I'm speechless to describe the view from the garden and the romantic table - this can't be described this have to be seen. The owner, Daniela is absolutely wonderful and welcoming and she did her best to make us all feel homely and welcome. The woman who is taking care for the house and lives in the next door house, Rosana is also very polite and very helpful for everything.
Volterra is one very beautiful place with many restaurants with wonderful food and it's giving you an easy access with car to S.Giminiano, Siena, Pisa, Florence. All those places are very beautiful and worth to visit but our favourite was San Giminiano - not as famous as the rest, but the best in our opinion. I'd recommend to everyone also the little restaurant just down the road from Casa Selci - only 2mins walk. The food there is hard to be described and the whole personnel, especially the Chef are very welcoming.
We all had great time there and I'd recommend this house to everyone who is interested to visit and feel the real spirit of Tuscany.

“Fantastic place in historic atmosphere”

We stayed in Casa Selci for the most of March and found a wonderful place, just 500 meters from the historic center of Volterra. Our host, Daniela, gave us the most warming welcome and always offered her help and guidance if we asked for it. The house lies behind a big wall with a stunning view over the beautiful Tuscany landscape. The garden actually is the biggest in the whole city, and here you can find a peaceful time with the family.
Inside the house was clean with a good, functional kitchen and great beds for all ages.
Volterra is a fascinating city with lots of nice restaurants and museums, especially the Etrurian Museum is a most go. As a base for trips to Siena, San Gimignano, Firenze or Pisa the place is excellent, just you give yourself the time to drive through the roads in the hillside.
