Make a holiday rental home or villa in Murlo, Italy your home away from home

Like much of Tuscany, the Val di Merse region is renowned for its unspoilt countryside, and the commune of Murlo is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful villages in the region. Located at slight altitude amongst a number of valleys and rivers, holiday rental accommodation in Murlo often provides stunning views of the surrounding Tuscan countryside, and gives visitors the ideal base to discover a charming village that has changed little over the past 700 years.

Things to do in Murlo, Italy

Around the village are a number of important Etruscan sites, many of which can be reached by following winding tracks that have been in place for many centuries. A great place to start is the Antiquarium di Poggio Civitate Archaeological Museum, which is housed in a former Bishop’s palace and displays important finds from the local area.

Nature lovers will find that the region makes for great walking and hiking, with the area around Murlo characterized by dense woodland, winding brooks and rivers and Mediterranean scrubland. A lack of disturbance to the landscape means that a huge array of wildlife can be spotted out in the countryside, including wild boar, deer, foxes, squirrels, badgers and numerous forms of birdlife.

There is also much to be seen in Murlo when it comes to historical buildings. The 12th Century Castello di Murlo has been converted into a number of smaller buildings, which surround the aforementioned Bishops palace and the village cathedral. The main piazza is a great meeting point and also where you will find some of the village’s finest architecture.

The views are stunning and the surrounding area has so much character with endless hilltop towns to discover and explore. We had a brilliant time and would recommend it to anybody looking for a place to unwind. Loredana was very helpful before we arrived and during our stay, and we thoroughly enjoyed an afternoon chatting to her by the pool whilst we were there. Thank you Loredana and we hope to see you again soon.

The property is romantic and has fantastic views. The village is friendly and the restaurants provide good Tuscan food. We enjoyed our stay a lot and would love to go back in due course.
