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 villa works great for a multi-generational get-together, as it is divided into 3 separate apartments. The grounds of the villa are gorgeous and well-kept and the pool is well-maintained. A car is necessary for any outings, as the villa is quite remote and only accessed by dirt roads. There are no restaurants, shopping or other amenities within walking distance, so a vehicle is necessary to enjoy the wonderful Chianti area. We only have good things to say about the housekeeper/keyholder, who assisted us in many aspects. All in all the villa lived fully up to our expectations and more.

The hosts warm welcome and information they provided on the local area added to the pleasure of our 10 night stay. The facilities within the accomodation are more then adequate, plentiful kitchen utensils, cutlery and china, including a microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. The sitting area is very roomy and the outside patio has stunning views over the Tuscan countryside. The village although small has a great restaurant, an Etruscan museum and the occasional special event. The location is perfect for exploring the many nearby hill towns. If you have a wish to enjoy the Tuscan life style in a wonderful environment then Il Pozzo in Murlo is well worth considering.

Fabio provided us with vegetables and fruit from the garden (including a basket of figs after we spotted some on the tree), recommendations of places to visit and restaurant bookings. The beds were comfortable and the showers hot and powerful. The kitchen had everything we needed including a washing machine, iron etc, huge oven (which would be great if you are there for longer). We didn't use the pool as we had been bitten all over by mosquitos whilst in Florence and we didn't want to risk it in the countryside - however none of us were bitten in the property, nor on our run around the local streets in the morning. Several of the windows had bug screens on so we were able to sleep with our windows open as temperatures outside were still in the 30s during the day. We'd be happy to go in the winter as there is underfloor heating in the bedrooms and bathrooms, and a huge open fireplace on the ground floor. Tuscany was such an amazing place - the podere san giusto is a perfect base to use to spend the day in Florence, San Gimignano, Sienna, Montepulciano, all within an hours reach. It was unfortunate that we had to leave to drive to Milan as a local monestary was opening its doors for the day. There is so much history and amazing sights nearby but not enough time on this trip. I'd highly recommend staying here with such lovely hosts.
