Your Italian Reverie

What to Expect

This is your home away from home, and whether you’re with your family or good friends, you have discovered the most idyllic place for your Italian escape.

Snuggled into the Umbrian countryside, time stands still at Selvamica. Wind whispers through the cypress trees, birds warble, and if you’re quiet, maybe you can hear the distant church bells ringing in Orvieto.

But Selvamica is also about modern-day living, with its sparkling pool, three paved terraces to enjoy alfresco dinner with a view, and open fireplaces for cozy chats or a leisurely afternoon reading session.

Our villa sleeps up to 11 people, with 2 bedrooms on the main level and 4 bedrooms on the upper floor, including the apartment. The upper-floor apartment can sleep up to 4 people.

As soon as you arrive, you will be greeted personally by our esteemed concierge, who will give you a tour of the villa and help you settle in. He will be a phone call away during your stay, in case of any emergency.

All guests enjoy an authentic Umbrian welcome basket upon arrival, including homemade crostata, cheese and wine that—in our experience—is best enjoyed on one of the villa’s three terraces, preferably as the sun sets over the vineyards.
