“Absolute perfection!”
Reviewed May 11, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I recommend Casa La Selva as highly as possible! We were a party of 7, two families with college age kids. Everyone enjoyed the stay. Our time in Umbria was absolutely perfect due to this great respite between the hectic pace of Venice and our journey further south to busy Rome. This is the perfect place to simply relax. We read, hiked, took runs, played cards, swam and made some exceptional meals in the well equipped kitchen. The location is also close to Cortina and Assisi and we visited both. There are several areas to dine in the villa and we had our own progressive dinner parties! I'd suggest stocking up on groceries and wine at the COOP in Umbertide (don't forget water, soap and TP, as we did). The pool is beautiful with all the towels and chairs you need to relax in splendor. The sounds of many different kinds of birds was as intoxicating as the exceptionally reasonable wine we enjoyed throughout our stay. Both the owner and the property care takers are friendly and helpful. This is a secluded villa in the hills which means you need to go up a dirt road. It is very passable and I mention this only to let you know that you will be more than rewarded at the end of your journey. We could not have imagined any place more magical.

“Fabulous Holiday!”
Reviewed August 14, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Driving from England we met up with our friends from the USA and arrived at Casa la Selva. What a delight! The 5km drive along a gravel road paid huge dividends as we felt lost in the middle of beautiful Umbrian countryside, but stayed in the lap of luxury. Almost everything we could have wanted was provided and the added bonus of being able to order groceries in advance was icing on the cake (great choice of wine, too!). Our teenagers didn't appreciate the poor wi-fi though! We would have no hesitation in recommending Casa la Selva to others. Thank you!

Hi Robert,
Thanks for your review. We took notice of your comment re the Wi-Fi and have now upgraded to a satellite service which is great. We have used it during our stays this year and are very happy with it.
We also now have a wireless speaker if guests want to play their own music.
