Agriturismo La Selva
Ranked #43 of 89 Specialty Lodging in Arezzo
Reviewed June 9, 2009

We stayed here with a group of friends in April. The weather turned very cold and wet. The group decided not to turn on the heating as it was an unknown extra expense. Rumours of high charges for heating influenced this decision. The room we had was very cold and damp without any heating. The sun came out on the day we left and we were able to appreciate that we would have enjoyed our stay much more if the weather had been kind to us. We used the services of the local cook one evening and the meal was excellent. Quite a large quantity of food, prepared from fresh produce. We ate at the local restaurant on two occasions. One of these nights was dreadful, with some ordered meals not even turning up. The other night was much better. Not everyone of our group had a car, so we had to travel with others to shop for food. This property is in farmland and public transport cannot be used to access it.

Apologies, we did not know how to respond to you until now.
So sorry you did not enjoy your stay as much as you could have and were unlucky with the weather. April is a tricky month sometimes. All our agents as well as our website mention heating as an extra. However, we are sensitive to this problem and have since changed the heating system from very expensive diesel to wood/pellet heating for Terrazza and Libreria. As we have so many acres of oak woods we now give heating free of charge for Terrazza and Libreria as well as wood for the fireplaces. That's nice for all - even ourselves in the main villa La Selva! Nowadays our visitors are much more followed up with on grounds personel. Since your stay we also have renovated and made the Villa Terrazza more comfortable all round, added more outdoor furniture and extras.

Sorry you had a bad experience with a restaurant but unfortunately that is out of our control since we are not restaurant owners. Glad you enjoyed the inhouse cook. :-)
