La Selva 20

Tuscan Villa for 20 with sauna and panoramic pool : Bucine, Arezzo

Villa Selva is a beautiful traditional Tuscan stone building and it sits above the valley of the Ambra river, with views over long rows of olive groves and hazelnut trees. The lay-out of the villa complex recalls that of a small ancient village complete with panoramic views, romantically framed corners and passageways.

Around the villa is a well groomed garden of herbs and flowers, spreading towards the woods and mingling with the natural vegetation covering the landscape. The large swimming pool lets guests enjoy lovely summer days while taking in the splendid scenery. The patio, cool and ventilated, is the ideal place for enjoying a meal or simply sipping a glass of wine at sunset. The sauna, located inside the villa annex, is designed with wooden-beamed ceilings and wide windows, offering another spot for private relaxation or a romantic moment.


The furnishings give Villa Selva the character of a family home. The rooms feature antique "cotto" floors, strong beams supporting the roof, a large fireplace, antique furniture and some contemporary design pieces.

Worth knowing

Many local administrations now charge a “Tourist Tax” for people staying in rented accommodation and these vary from town to town. The charges are generally per person per night with a maximum number of nights, usually around 5 but sometimes 7, beyond which they will not charge. The charges range between 50 cents to 3 euro. Children are sometimes included, sometimes not and these charges should be collected by the property owners.
