A Real Tuscan Experience
It is easy to enjoy the panoramic views while lounging by the pool, surrounded by the farm's vineyards or grill up local specialities at the BBQ. In addition to outdoor games like ping pong, billiards and other items especially for young children, it is possible to use mountain bikes and explore the trails located on the property.
The farm is situated on approximately 70 hectacres and offers the ideal opportunity to visit the farm activities and animals: chickens, rabbits, goats and pigs including the possibility to buy some of their own products.
Upon request, you can arrange for breakfast which highlights local specialities or even a tasting of the natural wholesome foods that abound in this area including olive oil and wine. The owners have thought of everything, in fact, you will find a convenient laundry area with a washing machine and ironing. Among the many extras, Le Selvole has covered parking.
Green Paradise Near the Coast
The house is surrounded by the family vineyards, fruit trees and a well-cared garden where the swimming pool is located (7 x 12 mt). Here you will find garden furniture, bright blossoms and an area suited to catch those famous Tuscan rays or simply an afternoon nap in the shade. Families with kids will find games to entertain them during the day. Those who prefer to travel with their four legged friend will find lots of space for their pets.
Many Alternatives for your Holiday Experience
Located immediately around the farmhouse are many options such as exploring the great outdoors at Monterufoli with trails for hiking near an old mining establishment and several old bridges spanning the river Ritasso. However, if history captures your attention, go no further than Volterra, an amazing hilltop town featuring a history rich with Etruscans, Romans and Florentine influence. If you are just looking to relax, then you can hop over to Cecina, a popular tourist resort with enticing sandy beaches for getting sun in the day and an nightlife for dancing, music and restaurants is the perfect stop.
With a short drive through the wonderful Tuscan landscape one can plan several day trips. Go beyond the Leaning Tower of Pisa and explore the city built on the same Arno river that crosses Florence. Stop at Pistoia, a small town which is truly worth the visit with its lovely churches, peaceful city streets and shops, as you make your way around. An all time favorite is Cinque Terre, along the coast of Italy, a day trip with the use of the major nearby highways.
More organized activities:
- Tastings: the possibility to participate in tastings of typical Tuscan dishes prepared with genuine products from the company and using only Tuscan products which are locally produced, invoking the traditions of classic Italian recipes.
