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.

La Selva is a haven of beauty and tranquility from where the only sounds you will hear are those of the birds or the cicadas hailing the arrival of a Summer 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.

All this washed down with glasses of wonderful local wine… Enjoy! 

La Selva is close to famous tourist destinations such as Spoleto, Montefalco, Assisi, Perugia and Todi as well as many beautiful villages that each offer their own individual character. There are supermarkets, farmer’s markets, butchers and bakeries very close (a few minutes drive) by as well as wonderful, authentic Umbrian restaurants. Throughout the year, there are also many music festivals, local events and traditional pageants including the seasonal festivities surrounding the wine and olive harvest-times.

This area is also well-known for its’ scenics walks and cycling routes.
