Casa La Selva is ideal for those looking for a relaxing break in the heart of Italy. Located on the border of Tuscany and Umbria, overlooking a quiet valley, Casa la Selva is perfect for getting away from it all, and a convenient base for exploring the area.

The house, originally built in the 18th-century, has been sympathetically restored to a high standard, preserving many of the original features. There are traditional terracotta floors, exposed stonework and chestnut-beamed ceilings throughout.

Outside there is a private swimming pool and large established gardens. Casa La Selva is available for private rentals, of one week or more for up to 10 people, throughout the year.

I recommend Casa La Selva as highly as possible! We were a party of 7, two families with college age kids. Everyone enjoyed the stay. Our time in Umbria was absolutely perfect due to this great respite between the hectic pace of Venice and our journey further south to busy Rome. This is the perfect place to simply relax. We...

Driving from England we met up with our friends from the USA and arrived at Casa la Selva. What a delight! The 5km drive along a gravel road paid huge dividends as we felt lost in the middle of beautiful Umbrian countryside, but stayed in the lap of luxury. Almost everything we could have wanted was provided and the added...

Hi Robert, Thanks for your review. We took notice of your comment re the Wi-Fi and have now upgraded to a satellite service which is great. We have used it during our stays this year and are very happy with it. We also now have a wireless speaker if guests want to play their own music.

About the neighbourhood
The region has many celebrations throughout the year and there is always something going on, from gothic parades to mushroom festivals.

We have collected lots of information and suggestions of things to see and do which we have left at La Selva as well as copies of a number of English guide books. If you would like to buy your own, we can recommend the Rough Guide and Lonely Planet series, Cadogan guides (good focus on Umbria) or Dorling Kindersley (beautifully illustrated).
