Villa La Selva Wine Resort

Villa La Selva is the most authentic Tuscany

An oasis of tranquillity for friends, love and leisure surrounded by vineyards. Originally owned by the Florentine De’ Medici family since the early 1400s, it stands on the ancient remains of a fortified watchtower, defending the entrance to the lush Ambra Valley, between Siena, Arezzo and Florence. Since 1950 the property has belonged to our family, transforming it with passion into a unique wine resort. Here life flows slowly, embracing a simple way of life enriched by beauty, love, nature, emotions, time and well-being. We welcome you to Villa La Selva.



The Villa Medicea

With a careful renovation of this historic property that has now become a splendid wine resort, Villa La Selva is a unique story told by five protagonist structures. The first is the heart of the property, the villa that dates back to the 1400s, Villa Altaserra. The stately residence that was once home to artists and aristocrats, overlooks its Italian-style gardens, its own personal pool and the most beautiful Tuscan views. The 7 rooms of Villa Altaserra will welcome you with their comforts and let you savour the true hospitality of home. Our aim is to share the beauty and quality of life of this place with our guests. The taste of “dolce far niente”.


Contemporary Tuscany

The Winery House is a unique flat located in the centre of the estate. With a mix of Tuscan furnishings and modern design, it offers a cosy and refined space. Positioned between the picturesque Tramonto pool and the historic Villa Altaserra, this enchanting place welcomes nine guests in a homely atmosphere.


Thypical Tuscan house

Once the home of the farming families who lovingly guarded the property, today it is a tale of Tuscan tradition, skilfully restored to preserve intact the signs of the past. The four rooms, characterised by original materials such as wooden beams and terracotta floors, blend harmoniously into a cosy living room with an antique fireplace. The Colonica Oliveto is immersed in its own private garden of olive trees in which to relax and enjoy a slow pace of life.


Two romantic retreats

Stone walls and a touch of romantic privacy mingle in two suites that have every comfort. Overlooking the vineyards and each with its own small private garden, the Selvamaggio Suite and the Merlo Rosso Suite are the two jewels of the estate.

Celebrating love


The location for a magical event.

A wedding or other special event amidst art, culture and vineyards, in a place with an evocative history and surrounded by unspoilt nature. Villa La Selva is the ideal location for a unique and unrepeatable event. Thanks to the great experience gained by the staff, Villa La Selva offers an accurate work planning involving many professionals: caterers, floral designers, interior decorators, audio-video-lighting technicians, photographers, musicians.

The Expression of Territory


Villa La Selva aims to combine the Tuscan culture of wine with an innate passion for pleasure and beautiful things, offering wines of exceptional quality and elegance. Respect for the grapes we grow, simple but rigorously controlled vinification, intervention reduced to a minimum, so as to give the fruit of the earth every chance to express itself in the best possible way.


The land of Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Giotto, Puccini, Piero della Francesca, the history of secret villages and fantastic cities. Unspoilt, untamed nature. In a few words, the Tuscany of wonders, able to amaze and fascinate. Surrounded by these surroundings full of culture, the Wine Resort is immersed in an ocean of silence, peace and greenery. At Villa La Selva you can savour the true hospitality of home, a place where you can detach your mind and enjoy Tuscan ‘good living’.
