Description

The space

Podere Casa Muricce is the place for people who love nature, animals, woods. Situated on the top of a hill high 400mt, carefully restructured according to the tradition, Casa Muricce is the typical ancient Tuscany house in stone: all the furnishings, even doors, are original from Tuscany houses of `700/'800. The surrounding land of 13 acres all around comprises: olive trees, secular oaks and a young vineyard. There is another building, but it’s not restructured yet, so you are the only host. Swimming pool is reserved for you.

There is a al fresco table, very panoramic, up to the swimming pool where you can eat, read and play.
Our philosophy is: enjoy the nature, its energy, its colours and its scents. The panoramic position allows to even appreciate the light of the wonderful sunset drinking a glass of wine on the edge of the swimming pool or eat a wonderful “fiorentina” steak cocked in the barbecue. It often happens that in the silent of the evening you can see fallow dear or other animals.
The village of Mercatale Valdarno is just 900 meters far; there you can found market, pharmacy, baker, bar, etc. On the hill in front to Casa Muricce, just 2 km road, you have the panoramic medieval tower of the castle of Galatrona, where is possible to rise on top. Within 30/40 kms there are Florence, Arezzo and Siena (the first two comfortably reachable also by train from the station of Montevarchi that is distant less than 10 minutes). Cortona, Montalcino, Pienza, Montepulciano,and the Val D' Orcia are distant approximately one hour by car.

This place is exactly what we were after. Secluded house with stunning views and lots of indoor and outdoor space. Views from the living and bedroom were absolutely stunning, and the outdoor patio and poolside areas are delightful. For those that like to cook, the kitchen, while old school, is extremely conducive with lots of space. Some in our group found the hot water temperature in the bathrooms a bit low, which the host tried his best to fix. Its extremely well located if one wants to explore Chianti and Arezzo as it sits in the middle, with beautiful drives through both regions to get to several villages, wineries and restaurants. Highly recommended and will come back!

This place was the highlight of our trip, this is one of the most beautiful and relaxing place we've stayed at. All you see around is Tuscan hills, vineries and olive gardens rolling down as far as you can see. The villa inside is superb too, much better than on the photos. Great bathtub, nice big beds, fast internet, beautiful, beautiful swimming pool and of course the scenery is to die for. Massimiliano is a perfect host - his family gave us the best welcome with the best pea pie in the world, arranged a visit to a dentist on a short notice, let us use their garden with all kinds of fruits and spices (we never knew fresh figs were that tasty!), gave all recommendations we needed and respected our privacy in every possible way. Strongly recommended!

Beautiful villa set in a stunning location with views and perfectly situated for touring Tuscany. We were welcomed by Massimiliano & Family. The villa was tastefully furnished and well appointed, very comfortable and clean, a real home from home. The outside pool area was very much enjoyed with lovely views across the valley. We would highly recommend this villa!

We had the most wonderful time staying in this magnificent place. Massimiliano and his whole family made us feel so welcome. They have done an amazing job redecorating and refurnishing the apartment with original and local items, yet so in line with a modern standard. There is a true feeling of tranquility, and the view and scents from the lovely garden were so beautiful and enjoyable. A home away from home. It is difficult to capture the true beauty of this place both in words and pictures, but we would truly recommend it. We hope to come back. We felt that we had everything we needed within the short driving distance to the nearby villages.

What a great place to be! A real jewel on earth, calm and hidden in the hills of Tuscany. We spent a 6 days at Massimo’s countryhouse. Massimo gave us a very warm Welcome and even provided us with a cake to start our vacation with. The house, the pool and the area is wonderful. It is even better than on the photos in the internet. You can see and feel that the house was renovated with lots of personal effort in choosing the right interior equipment. The next grocery store is about 10min to walk to Mercatale Valdarno, really quiet and relaxing. We had the upper floor for us consisting of three spacious bed rooms, two with a double bed for the adults and in one of two beds for the kids. Everything was perfectly clean and fresh. In addition there is one bath room and one shower room (each room including a toilet) In the living room with an open fire place the couch could have been used as a bed but we did not sleep on it. Thanks again to Massimo and his wife, we had a great time and it is definitely not the last time, we have been there. Thomas & Eva

We had a terrific time at this amazing villa. The flat was great and the scenery was amazing. The hosts went out of their way to help and look after us. They made dinner reservations when I asked, helped us take our car to an auto shop, drive us 30 km away to where we could rent a car and even followed up with us after we left. I would love to go back to this villa someday and relive such a great time. I highly recommend this place for those looking to get lost in the countryside of Tuscany.
