Overview

La Selva is a beautiful and very spacious farmhouse which belongs to the Badia di Morrona wine estate. It is set on top of a hill surrounded by vineyards and enjoys stunning views to the surrounding countryside and to several hilltop villages in the distance.

This is a lovely area for touring and relaxing - trips to Florence could be taken by train from Pontedera if you didn't want to use the car, and you can easily reach Pisa, Volterra, Florence, Lucca, San Gimignano, Siena and the sandy beaches of Tirrenia for enjoyable days out. A good supermarket is just five minutes drive away. Tennis courts are available in Ponsacco and horse riding can be found in the grounds of Badia di Morrona.

A good restaurant which belongs to the estate is just over half mile away and serves delicious typical Tuscan meals. The estate offers wine tasting and you can also visit the impressive winery.

The farmhouse is surrounded by nice garden areas equipped with garden furniture and barbecue and there is a beautiful large salt swimming pool in the garden sized 15m x 7m, depth 1m - 3m. Several gazebos around the pool provide shade during the hot hours. There is also a sauna in the garden in a small wooden house.
