Life is about experiences, and there is no greater experience than travel. I born in Tuscany and after travelling all over the world I choose to live between Tuscany and Thailand surrounded by beautiful nature and great food. In my free time I like to sailing, cycling, cooking, snowboarding, traveling and exploring new cultures.

During your stay

By many generations my family live in this unique and special part of Italy; for the last 20 years we passionately dedicated time and care to La Selva Giardino del Belvedere and to our guests.

We know the area very well and we will be happy to assist you in organizing extra activities or day trips (complimentary benefit for our guests) and make your time in Tuscany unique & memorable.

On arrival I would like to welcome you and your guests with a short walking tour of the property. During the tour I will show the estate and speak about:
• History of the place
• Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Wines
• Plants and wild animals of the estate
• Useful suggestions to better enjoy your stay
• Nearby interesting places to visit
The tour will be around 30 minutes and will start in front of La Selva main villa.
