Bucine farmhouse description
Wine-making is the unbroken thread that runs through countless generations, as far back as 1245; an enterprising friar called Giovanni Carpini was sent by Papa Innocent IV
to the Emperor of Cathay bearing a gift of rare Tuscan rootstock.
Today's descendants, Sergio and Riccardo Carpini, after brilliant careers as fabric makers to all the top fashion designers in the world, are putting Villa La Selva through a monumental restoration of the vineyards, the villas and the winery.
Wi-Fi internet connection available.
The outdoors of the property are actually the top for the lovers of Tuscan landscape: from the well-kept gardens the eye stretches out to the sweet hills covered by vineyards and olive groves.

SITES AND ACTIVITIES
La Selva is situated in one of the most beautiful parts of Italy
and is placed in the southern part of Tuscany.
We are very near the provinces of Umbria and Lazio.
The scenery is typical of the pictures painted by the Renaissance artists. It has sweet hills and sweeping valleys, marked by noble cypress trees and adorned with vineyards, olive groves, and large forests of oaks, giving shade from the heat of the summer, the woods have trails and road for walks, mountain biking and horseback riding.
Our 370 Acres of fenced land is inhabited by wild animals:
Deer, wild goats, porcupines, wild boar, hedge hogs, fox, hares, squirrels
The climate is mild, except in July and August when the sun is very strong and hot.
Within a 15/30 minute drive, you can visit the art towns like Siena, Monte San Savino, Lucignano and Sinalunga.
In the direction of Chianti there is a constellation of little medieval villages and castles, full of history and each with there own personal story through the centuries.
In the direction of Siena there is the "Crete di Siena" a very special landscape that changes colour every month delighting artists from all over the world.
Within 30/45 minutes drive you can visit places like Cortona, Assisi, Perugia, Arezzo, Volterra, San Gimignano, Montepulciano, Chiusi, Pienza, Montalcino, to name a few. Some are famous for their wines.
Many have an Etruscan background. These villages are always on very scenic and unbeaten roads.
The landscape continually changes, making one hold their breath in wonder at what beholds around every corner.
Then of course there is Florence, 45 minutes away.
The home of the Renaissance, with fantastic churches and huge museums full of glorious history and artistic wealth.
We can advise and give information on the various cities of art and museums, providing road maps.
It is impossible to see everything and you may plan your stay, or just play it by ear.
Some people just like to relax and sun themselves around the pool - our pools are in very scenic positions.
