RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. Casetta Selvella is a stone farmhouse dating from the nineteenth century, surrounded by the green hills of Umbria and situated in a small village a few kilometers from Castiglione del Lago, one of the oldest and most picturesque of the region. Recently renovated in keeping with the original plan it has been provided with all the modern conveniences and accurately finished off in accordance with the dictates of the local architectural tradition, with characteristic wooden-beamed ceilings and handmade terracotta flooring on the ground floor. Casetta Selvella is the ideal place for those looking for a holiday of wellbeing, tranquillity and unspoilt nature. At the same time, its perfect geographical position between Tuscany and Umbria, thanks also to an excellent road system, allows guests to make short trips to the many interesting tourist destinations of great gastronomic, cultural and artistic importance in the vicinity: Montepulciano, Pienza, Cortona, Orvieto, the Val d'Orcia are just a short distance away as are major art cities like Siena and Perugia, not to mention, finally, the famous spas of Chianciano Terme and San Casciano dei Bagni.


The house has two floors. The entrance on the ground floor leads directly to a spacious living area composed of a sitting room, dining area and kitchen, forming a single open space. The floor is completed by a study with single divan bed and a bathroom with shower. The entire ground floor has outside access via French windows which, from the kitchen and sitting room, open on to the porch with a dining area and, from the study, to the pool area. Indoor and outdoor staircases lead up to the first floor with the sleeping area composed of two double bedrooms (one with divisible bed and panoramic balcony) and a bathroom with shower and tub.


The property is completely fenced in and covers an area of 3000 square meters. The inner park, covered largely by a well-kept lawn surrounding the house, contains an olive grove and an attractive vegetable garden for guests who wish to savour the genuine products of the land. The garden all around is enriched by a varied assortment of herbs and colourful flowers with heady scents, such as roses, oleanders, irises, gladiolas, and invites guests to spend their days outdoors and to admire the enchanting spectacle of nature which, with its cycles, fills the surrounding countryside with shimmering colours and tones. The porch, easily accessible from the kitchen, is furnished with table and chairs for outdoor dining. A second portico, adorned with wisteria plants and furnished with armchairs and coffee table, at the side of the sitting room provides a pleasant area to sit and relax looking out over the magnificent view of the peaceful countryside. Finally, in the pool area, a pergola furnished with table and chairs and barbecue, is the ideal spot for delicious alfresco grills.

Swimming Pool

The pool is located in the inner garden of the property and is about 5 m from the house and is on the same level, in a beautiful panoramic position overlooking the surrounding countryside. Rectangular-shaped, it measures 7 x 4 m with a constant depth of 1.5 m. It is lined in PVC with a travertine border and has Roman steps for access into the water. The purification plant is chlorine. Around the pool is a large solarium area with well-kept lawn and furnished with sunbeds and deckchairs. Completing the area is a pergola with table and chairs and a Jacuzzi. The pool is open from the last Saturday of April to the first Saturday in October.
