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.

“Absolutely perfect place and people for our reunion...”
Reviewed 9 May 2016 for a stay in March 2016

What a incredible and memorable stay at La Selva..
Francesco went completely out of his way to make sure that we had all that we needed and to guide us around the local area.
With guests coming in from all over the world , Francesco gave us impeccable directions and advise for getting there and was always on hand to help us with anything we needed.
The house is set in beautiful grounds with a lovely walk through country lanes to the next village on the hill..
Maria the chef cooked for us some the of the best food we had in Italy... and the big log fire in the living room was the perfect spot for everyone to congregate and share..
I cannot speak highly enough of our chance to stay at La Selva .. lots of tears when we left..
Thank you Francesco and Maria and the family for your heartfelt hospitality..

“La Salva is the best place for wedding, private events and vacation!”
Reviewed 23 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

How can we sum up a year of collaboration, working on a 3-day event with zero mistake and 100% of pure fun and love for 70 guests?
Our event was complicated, it was 3 days of parties in the villa, amazing food and wine, music and friends.
Francesco helped us to find a hotel nearby for our guests (our guests loved it). In the first day we had a ‘Welcome dinner’, fine Italian cuisine. The next day we had our religious ceremony and then a big dinner with the best food ever. the catering Francesco offered was well trained, very kind and professional. The Chef fixed the menu to our guests needs and made a super amazing dinner. Our guests, with no exceptions, didn’t stop talking about the food 3 weeks later. We asked for flowers and Francesco arrange an amazing and talented women that set the tables and decorations and it was beautiful.
The Villa was very comfortable for our family, there are a lot of rooms and bathrooms, the pool was great, it’s big and have amazing view.
Maria was kind and helped us a lot with the laundry and cleaning of the villa, the entire area is breathtaking and the magical spots in the garden gave us a peaceful time.
The day after we had a pool and pizza party, again, the Chef made incredible pizzas with all kind of topping and lot of other food. our guests were amazed.
Francesco gave us the best feeling during the stay and helped us with any problem we had. He came to our parties dressed as an Italian model and party with us till the end. he managed to be the best host, the best wedding planner and the best friend in the sam
e time and he did it with style!

This place is perfect for wedding and Francesco deliver a top class service of managing the event and accuracy in the smallest details as we never seen before. any request, small as big, was answered. Along with his family they created an incredible Italian and Tuscanian experience.

If you are looking to get married in Italy, this is your place. see our photos and you will know :)

“Could not have been better!”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in June 2015

It's not just location, location, location (which is incredible and central/convenient to just about everything), it's also villa, villa, villa, meaning La Selva is a lovely, peaceful, roomy, comfortable, rustic/historic place where our family of 13 could sleep comfortably, roam around and even find privacy. Never to be forgotten is the lovely, green acreage, the swimming pool (always in use), the amphitheater, and, totally unexpected but relished fireflies (we were there in late June) that sparkled in the the trees near to our regular outside dinners. But there's also Francesco, Francesco, Francesco and his family, all of whom made us feel like part of their family and assisted in making our every wish and need come true. Equally incredible was the steady flow of important, thorough and interesting information that he began sending our way from our very first contact. (You have to experience it to truly appreciate it.) The combination of all of this (location, villa and Francesco) made our family vacation truly incredible, and gave us all fond memories that we will relish for the rest of our lives.

“Our new favorite place on earth....”
Reviewed 25 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is our new happy place. La Selva. My husband and I were married here at the end of May, 2015. We fell in love with it immediately and that love only grew throughout the week. We had impromptu dinners here with our wedding party and friends, played music, sat by the pool and had too many conversations to count with the ones we loved. By the time our wedding day came around, we'd already gotten our money's worth and then some. Because you can't put a price tag on a place like this. Just show up and things start to happen. The memories we shared here will last us a life time. And we are already dreaming of coming back and bringing all of our friends with us. :) Ooh and Francesco? What a gem. He's one of the kindest, most considerate men we've ever met. He was there for us, anytime. You will love this place. I promise. Just say yes. :)
