About Fabrizio Finocchietti

Hello everyone I'm Fabrizio , I am Italian and I come from Roma . My passions are traveling and photography. I have visited many countries ( Tanzania , Tunisia , Costa Rica , Turkey , the United States, and almost all of Europe ) until four years ago I arrived in Mexico, and I decided to stay . So with a bit of savings I started building my condo " Selva Madre " . And now after many adventures are finally ready to welcome you !

Fabrizio Finocchietti purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Fabrizio Finocchietti chose La Veleta

When I arrived in Tulum 4 years ago I was enchanted by the beauty and tranquility of the Veleta, so I decided to invest my savings here and build my house . The idea was to merge the Italian style with the warmth of tropical style. From this was born Selvamadre , a condominium nestled in nature with large external and internal spaces, and finished with materials typical of the Yucatan Peninsula .

What makes this apartment unique

The penthouse has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms , large living room with large terrace of 35 sqm overlooking the pool . Fully equipped kitchen . Private solarium of 95 square meters with Palapa , outdoor shower , table for 6 people , where you can enjoy romantic sunsets . Thanks to the tranquility of the area from our terraces you can spot toucans , hummingbirds and many other species of birds

Salve Madre

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property was fantastico. The penthouse is most accomodating and large. The home is cozy, inviting and not hard to relax in. I'll be hoping to use this property again. No doubt one of the finer condo I've rented in Mexico (Quntana Roo).

The groundskeeper was very responsive and took care of any issues and needs as they arose. The owner was not but an email way, which is reassuring. Don't hesitate to rent this home. Birds and wildlife abundant. Hasta luego.

Owner's Response: Hi David! thank you for the beautiful words. I'm glad that the stay was to your liking and that you all had a good time. I regret not having known you personally but unfortunately work often does not allow me to be in Tulum. Fortunately I have my secret weapon Santos who can help my guests for whatever their needs. Hope to see you back here in Tulum and remember that you are always welcome! Fabrizio

Awesome condo in Tulum

  • 5 of 5

We are just winding down our 3 week stay in Tulum and must say that our penthouse accommodation at Selva Madre exceeded our expectations. Not only is the unit large and well designed, but also has fabulous outdoor living space with a very large patio and, a rooftop retreat for another level of relaxation and privacy. Then there is the beautiful pool, which I think separates this property from other condo options in Tulum. It is large enough that my wife can swim lengths each morning, and great for just lounging around if you want to have a quiet day away from the beach. With only 9 units in the complex, this place is quiet and has a nice homey feel to it.

Location wise, you are on the southern edge of town, but an easy few minutes drive into the middle of the action. The beach isn't far but it I would estimate it at a 10-15 minute drive depending on which end of the beach you are travelling to (north end was our preference as it is more accessible and uncrowded). Having a car (as we did) is ideal, but there were others staying here who used a combination of bikes and taxis to get around and they seemed fine with it. Taxis are plentiful, even on the beach, so if you choose that option I don't think you will be terribly inconvenienced. I drove a lot while I was here (including back and forth to the airport a few times) and was pleasantly surprised at how patient and considerate the drivers of other vehicles were overall (although some craziness on the road from town to the beach road at times for some reason). Police are ever present but were mostly directing traffic so no problem in that regard. If you find you want/need a car, there are rental offices in town on the road leading to the beach.

Finally a word about our host, Fabrizio, and the property superintendant, Santos. Fabrizio was always quick to respond to my inquiries from the time I made the booking in October and throughout our stay. We had few issues but when we did, he was quick to respond and act (even when he was visiting his family back in Rome!). Santos, who is virtually always on site, is a kind and pleasant man who will do anything he can to assist (including helping carry up the groceries). His English is limited, but we found a way to communicate so no problem.

To close, many thanks to Fabrizio and Santos for making my family's stay here in Tulum so memorable. We will be back!

Nice accomodation in Tulum

  • 4 of 5

The place is very nice, with a great terrace on the top. The complex itself is very quiet, not far away from the main street in Tulum. You will need a car though to get there, as the streets are not really walkable, especially at night.

Fabrizio is super quick in answering questions by email. Thank you!

Great Tulum Option

  • 5 of 5

Our party was very pleased with the always quick communication from the property owner. The property is modern, clean, and had a great swimming pool. The A/C worked well and kept the unit cool during some hot, humid days. We also enjoyed the rooftop patio. The property is located at the end of town which was fine by us. Plenty of room for parking our rental car. Great price and value!

excellent accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 wonderful nights in Fabrizio's penthouse.

Make no mistake, you are on the edge of the jungle when you stay here, and it's beautiful. Make sure you have a rental car though, as it makes getting around much easier. We preferred to sleep in the jungle and spend our days at the beach.

I highly recommend staying in any unit in this building.

Also, make sure you eat at Los aguachiles just on the main road from the building. It's really something special.

We will definitely return.
