RESIDENCE

TENUTA LA SELVA

CROCE DI LUCIGNANO

Sd

Magica Toscana ...

The harmonious landscape of the hills decked with cypresses, the chirping of the crickets,

the delights of the table or the pungent aromas of the flora make Tuscany a unique place to

delight your five senses.

It is said that this is a foretaste of paradise.

The roots of our European civilisation are to be found in this magnificent region, which is

why the names of towns like Firenze (Florence), Sienna, San Gimignano or Grosseto sound

so sweet to our ears.

The homeland of the Etruscans is a pleasant area to holiday, not only in Summer, for Spring

and Autumn are also particularly good times to go exploring; during these seasons, the

local characteristics are more perceptible.

If you sharpen your senses, you will come upon charming details which can be appreciated

only first-hand.

Do not put it off any longer, it may be time to realise your dream.

Welcome to Tuscany!

5. Activities

Tuscany is probably the best-known and most-visited region of Italy. Florence and its monuments

are certainly the main attraction of this region so rich in history and culture, which is famous even for

its food and wines.

When speaking of Tuscany, one must mention the Chianti hills, the splendid landscapes of the "Crete

senesi" (Sienna Peaks) and of Val d'Orcia, Mugello, Casentino and Maremma.

Tuscany is an area rich in folklore, from Florentine Football to the

Palio di Sienna (horse race), from the Gioco del Ponte to the Giostra

del Saracino (jousting), this area offers several occasions to delve

into the past.

A trip to Tuscany is a good opportunity to sample its famous tasty

dishes while washing them down with Chianti or Brunello di

Montalcino.

The "sagre" or festivals and village fêtes, organised mainly during the high season, will give you a

chance to discover the vast and wide range of local products.

The property is located near the main motorways so there is a broad choice of destinations for trips :

20 min fromArezzo (Saracino)

20 min fromMontepulciano (Vino Nobile di Montepulciano)

20 min fromPienza

30 min fromCortona

40 min fromSiena (Palio)

45 min fromFlorence

45 min fromPerugia

45 min fromMontalcino (Brunello di Montalcino)

50 min fromOrvieto

1 hour fromMonteriggioni

1¼hours fromSan Gimignano

1½hours fromRome

1 hour and 40 min fromthe Tyrrhenian Sea / Grosseto

Culture :

One of the facets of Tuscany which strikes the attentive visitor most

is the astonishing alliance and breath-taking harmony that exists

between the architecture and the landscape.

How many places that you have visited on your travels always seem

to have been there, as if their absolutely perfect integration with

creation made us imagine that they must have been created at the

same time as Tuscany itself? This magic environment, with its deep

colours, emphasised by the unique Tuscan light, cannot fail to

charm you.

The wines and foods discovered !

Sport and relaxation

In Tuscany, you will have the chance to set out in search of the true treasures of the land. There are

the exceptional Tuscan wines, the cold meats or truffle collecting and visits to presses where

incomparable "extra vergine" olive oil is cold pressed.

Tuscany offers a great choice of activities such as golf (a 9-hole

course just 10 minutes from the prop-erty), or the thermal baths for

relaxation and well-being (Terme di Rapolano just 20 minutes

away)

Activities on the estate

Nothing quite like a bicycle for exploring the territory around the

estate as well as the neighbouring villages. You can do that with the

bikes (adult and children) available on the estate.

On your return, you might like to freshen up and relax by the

recently-renovated pool (10 x 5 m).

The terrace around the swimming-pool has been extended to take all the residents of the estate

without crowding them.

The sportier among you will also be able to enjoy the freshness of

the bowling green laid out in a shady corner of the park.

Come the evening, you will be able to cook excellent pizze in the

wood-burning oven or have barbecues with friends, all washed

down with the wine produced on the estate.

These convivial moments will undoubtedly leave an indelible mark on the people lucky enough to

share them with you!

Shopping

Whether it is clothing, jewels made by Aretino goldsmiths, refined hand-made papers or ceramic

and alabaster objects created by the skilful hand of a Sienna craftsmen and Volterra you are after,

shopping-lovers will be spoilt for choice in the historical centres of the nearby towns.

You will also find a shopping centre near the estate for your

purchases. Indeed, less than 10 minutes by car from the

estate, "Valdichiana Outlet Village" all year round offers its

visitors a huge range of prestigious brands through more

than 130 shops, at discounts of 30% to 70% off the market
