We stayed at Selvella 3 years ago and returned there this October. It was as wonderful as we remembered and we were welcomed by Marina and Guiseppe, Elisa and the dogs -Ida and Lella as though we were family. We were travelling by train so Marina collected us from the station and returned us there at the end of our stay. Our apartment was delightful with a view over the surrounding countryside. We helped pick olives, walked the hills, trips were arranged for us (with transport) and a surprise birthday party. The food was wonderful- all freshly prepared and locally sourced and often meat was roasted over the open fire in the dining room. Guiseppe's chestnuts in red wine were a highlight after dinner many evenings as were his wooden puzzles! La Selvella is an experience of Tuscany not to be missed.
