Excellent Country Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in La Selvaccia for nine months (September through May) when my husband was transferred to Italy for work. The house is situated on a mountain with views overlooking Pietrasanta and the ocean. There is a gated garden with a nice patio & seating area to enjoy the view. In the winter there were lemons and oranges growing on the trees and in the spring the flowers and foliage were very beautiful. The house itself is tastefully decorated in Tuscan style and parts of it have been renovated. The living room and den area provide enough space for large groups, and the dining room has a large table with a pizza oven and wood-fired grill. The beds were very comfortable and the upstairs are split into two sections. One area has a master bedroom and connecting bath, and the other has a smaller queen bedroom, a kids bedroom with bunk beds, and a large bathroom. The house overall was well suited for large groups when we had guests. Be prepared for a very winding and steep driveway, especially if you are from the US! The owners were wonderful and easy to work with. Lara made us feel at home in Italy and were very responsive whenever we had an issue. Overall, we highly recommend this home for your next stay in Versilia!

Selvaccia is a unique place to spend your holidays

  • 5 of 5

I loved Selvaccia from day one. Its location makes it a unique place, surrounded by incredible nature and an astonishing view on the valley and the sea. Peace and calm, it's heaven on earth. The house is fully equipped and very elegant in all its details.

Super Haus, kann ich nur empfehlen

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine großartigen Aufenthalt. Die Lages des Hauses ist einmalig schön. Die Zufahrt etwas spektakulär, aber mit dem Auto problemlos machbar. Die Aussicht auf Stadt und Meer entschädigt für die Bergfahrt. Sehr schön und alles gepflegt.

Wunderbares Haus in sehr schöner Lage!

  • 4 of 5

Das mit Stil und Gefühl eingerichtete haus bietet gut Platz für 5-6 Personen; der fantastische Blick von der Terrasse lädt zum sitzen und Seele baumeln lassen ein. Die Zufahrt ist anfänglich abenteuerlich, dann jedoch gut zu meistern.

Sehr angenehm, dass man fern vom Trubel der Strandpromenade und der Ortschaft ist! Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit dort!

Have been there with 4 kids and 4 adults, excellent! Highly recommendable. The location at the mountains is a nice contrast to the shore! Looking forward on coming again.
