Welcome to the Borgo Agrituristico “Le Selve”, a place that evokes an atmosphere of times passed, blessed by a refreshing air that awakens the senses and by picturesque views that fill the heart with joy...
Into Marche’s interior, just before the Monti Sibillini National Park, “Le Selve” is a part of the Piane Vecchie hamlet, situated at a height of 550 meters, a few kilometers outside Comunanza in the direction of Montemonaco.
Le Selve is the perfect location for a relaxing stay: it is immersed in the green of the Aso high valley’s woodlands. The surroundings can be at the same time restful and stimulating, providing opportunities to relax and enjoy nature or to enjoy exercising outdoors.
There are footpaths nearby, sheltered by the shady trees, that are perfect for walks, horse and mountain-bike riding; excursions to the fabled Monte Sibilla, to Monte Vettore with the picturesque Lago di Pilato and the stunning planes of Castelluccio di Norcia. You can find mushrooms, chestnuts, hazelnuts and fruits in the woods; go fishing along the creeks and kayaking in the neighboring Lago di Gerosa; wine and food tasting to experience the gastronomic specialities of the Ascoli Piceno region; guided arts tours of the small towns that stud the territory rich in history and tradition.
The beautifully restored ‘borgo’ of le Selve dates back to the 16th Century and is composed of several different conjoined buildings. There is a succession of gardens, terraces, arches and tree-lined spaces that culminate in the panoramic swimming pool, set high at the edge of the woods from where it is possible to have a wonderful view of the Sibillini mountains and surrounding scenery.
On the nearby hill that dominates the entire valley, arises a small church dedicated to Saint Sebastian that hails from the 15th Century. It has some well preserved frescos typical of the Crivelli School, portraying the martyr and the Madonna with the Child.
The hospitality that we offer includes lodging in the rooms or apartments and dining in the atmospheric restaurant based in the old cellars on the ground floor of the main building.
The cuisine offered is simple and genuine, based on the delicious traditional meals of the mountain gastronomy, matched with excellent wines that this region produces.
