Delightful, relaxing and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was wonderful and we fully intend coming back.

The cottage was lovely, tastefully decorated and well equipped. The veranda and patio provide a lovely view of the morning and evening skies, and cool respite from the heat of the day. The swimming pool was much used and appreciated; the children loved swimming after sunset in a pool with colour-changing lights and visiting bats. They also adored Francesca's dogs who were well behaved and gentle.

Francesca and her husband were delightful, generous and friendly hosts. The extras such as home grown olive oil, wine and vegetables/fruits were an unexpected bonus of the stay. Cooking roast chicken with freshly picked vegetables in the wood-burning stove was a taste experience that should not be missed.

The local area and villages provided opportunities to buy fresh bread, pasta, local produce and gelato. The local pizzeria (L'Angoletto Ristorante Pizzeria Albergois) welcoming and good value. The other restaurant 'Vechhia Quercia' with its outside tables provided a nice venue, but beware the size of the vegetarian antipasta - it will defeat you.

The cottage is driving distance from Rome with easy parking at the Villa Borghese (~18 Euro for day) - we spent a great day sightseeing.

Wholeheartedly recommend this cottage is you are looking for a relaxing time and enjoy the simple things of life - sun, laughter, family, and good food and wine.

Hidden gem and amazing hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 10 days in Selci and had the most wonderful, relax, quiet and fun time.

The house was very comfortable, lovely decorated with everything you need and more.

The bed in the master bedroom was perfect which is not often the case in many rentals. That makes a big difference when you have a husband who's 1.90m! We enjoyed the swimming pool every day as well as the amazing view of the orchard and daily sunsets.

Last but not least, we couldn't be more thankful to our hosts, Francesca and Alberto!

They made us feel at home straight away and we were so fortunate to try their very own olive oil and wine. They also treated us with tomatoes, ham and Prosecco! We really appreciated the fact that they were here if needed but respected very well our privacy. Their dogs were so well behaved as well and shared great moments with our 5 year-old son. We would love to go back one day and highly recommend it.

Heerlijke ontspannen vakantie in Selci

  • 5 of 5

We hebben 2 fantastische weken gehad in Selci. Wij hebben nog niet eerder ons zo gast van de familie gevoeld in een vakantiehuis (zonder dat dit ten koste gaat van de privacy). Het huisje is van alle gemakken voorzien en kijkt uit over de heuvels van Lazio en een prachtige boomgaard met olijf, citroen, perzik en vijgen bomen. Maar het bijzonderste van deze locatie is nog wel de gastvrije eigenaren en hun lieve honden. We werden fantastisch ontvangen met een koelkast vol verse tomaten, courgette en aubergine van eigen moestuin. In de tuin rondom het huisje staat verse basilicum en rozemarijn en maakt een Italiaanse maaltijd compleet. Speciaal was de uitnodiging om samen met de eigenaar een Italiaanse maaltijd te koken. De kinderen (4 en 5) hebben genoten van het spelen met de honden (kind van 4 is altijd bang geweest voor honden maar heeft zich 2 weken vermaakt met het aaien, apporteren en knuffelen van de honden) spelen in de boomgaard en zwemmen. Wij komen zeker terug.

Geweldige plek

  • 5 of 5

We hebben een heerlijke week doorgebracht in dit huisje. Het huis is nog mooier dan op de foto's. De hartelijke eigenaren, die er naast wonen, onthaalden ons vriendelijk, en met een koelkast vol zelfgemaakte wijn, groente en fruit, en ook zelfgemaakte olijfolie. De honden zijn erg lief en aanhankelijk, en kunnen ook prima buiten het huisje gehouden worden door een afscheiding. Het zwembad is ook heel goed van afmeting om wat baantjes te trekken. Vanaf het terras een prachtig uitzicht over de heuvels.
