Selvabella is a farmhouse situated in the heart of Tuscany, half way between Greve and Panzano in Chianti. Just 35 km from Florence and Siena it is a perfect place to enjoy the beauty of Chianti famous for its wines, landscapes and picturesque villages.
The house, nestled among vineyards, olive groves and on the outskirts of a wooded area, is surrounded by a large garden where you can relax away from the bustle of the city. Here you will find a large variety of plants, and enjoy the pleasure of eating the fruits directly from our trees (cherries, jujubes, strawberry tree fruits , plums, etc.), or simply play a match of table tennis or relax with a view of the valley and hill of Panzano in front of a good glass of Chianti.

The rooms "Il Riccio" and "Lo Scricciolo", with a separate entrance from the main house, are located in the old barn (renovated in the 60s) and in the Tower of the house. They keep all the flavor of the original building: the roof with exposed beams, terracotta tiles floors and antique furniture.
In the main house there are the living room and the library with a large amount of books about Tuscany, its cities and museums. Here nature lovers will find plenty of guides to flora and fauna, while those of gastronomy will find, in the wide section dedicated to the subject, the secrets of Tuscan traditional recipes, as well as many other of avant-garde cuisine.
Next to the living room you will find the breakfast room with a view to the valley and the garden. At breakfast we serve natural juices made from fresh fruit, different kinds of artisan bread, pastries and jams, Tuscan cheese and cured meats, Km 0 tomatoes and oil, yoghurt, cereal, coffee, teas, etc.
Moreover, if you love good food and cooking you will have the chance to join us into the kitchen. Our dishes, have the flavor of our roots, Italy and Spain, Tuscany and Galicia and remain faithful to tradition with a wink at the modern fusion cuisine.
Adjacent to the parking , there is a cellar that we converted in our small ceramic laboratory. Here we produce our own pottery that we will be keen to show you.
