A symphony of strength and passion

BALLOONING

The experience of a hot-air balloon flight, offered near Villa La Selva, is a truly unique and unforgettable way to admire the beauty of the Chianti region. During this approximately one-hour flight, guests can soar above the breathtaking landscape, observing from above the rolling hills, undulating vineyards and picturesque villages of the region. This aerial adventure offers a different and magical perspective on Chianti, making it a memorable experience that combines excitement, peace and a spectacular view of the heart of Tuscany.

CITY TRIP

We are lucky to be in an area few kilometres away from cities of art and culture that are visited by thousands of tourists every year. Nearby is Siena, whose centre became a Unesco heritage site in 1995. Famous throughout the world for its famous square, Piazza del Campo, where the Palio is held twice a year, which has now become a secular liturgy involving both locals and outsiders who remain enveloped in the magical atmosphere that is created. A city not only of the Palio, however, but also rich in churches, palaces and museums, among which it is worth mentioning the magnificent Duomo and the famous Torre del Mangia.
Florence and Arezzo are a short distance away. The former an international capital for beauty and history, the latter perhaps less famous but rich in precious treasure troves such as the works of Piero della Francesca and Giotto. Known for an important antiques market. At Villa La Selva you will be spoilt for choice: unspoilt nature, wine, history, culture. In a few words, Tuscany and Chianti.

THERMAL BATHS

Rapolano Terme, located just a short distance from us, only 11 km away, is a charming destination renowned for its rejuvenating thermal springs.
