This is a fabulous property that is very conveniently located. It has all the charm of the Tuscan country side and yet very drivable to the Florence city center. It would be a great place to spend some time during summer and winter alike. The wine in that area is amazing.
2020 has afforded additional Charm to the ground floor Kitchen, refurbished with Carrara Marble cooking Top and side walls; also added Comfort to its West groundfloor bedroom, with a fully refurbished ensuite bathroom featuring wheelchair tailored facilities.
The property is in the most amazing location and the Villa far exceeded our expectations.
My family and I totaled 10 people. Everyone loved the Villa and our host, Caterina. We highly recommend this Villa and Caterina to everyone headed to Tuscany. The Villa is conveniently located 8 Km south of Florence. I do recommend that future guests rent a car.
Caterina is a wonderful host. She is organized, intelligent, interesting, gracious, humble, and funny. She did everything possible to fulfill our every need. Everyone in my party absolutely loved meeting and spending time with her.
The Villa is exactly as depicted on the rental website. It is several hundred years old with more character, charm, and beauty than one could hope for. Plenty of room inside and our for a larger group.
Overall, this was an amazing time and we would rent this Villa again.
If you are considering renting this Villa, do it now before someone else beats you to it. This is an experience you will never forget.
Thank you so much Caterina.
It was just as advertised but even more beautiful. A quiet location that is very close to Florence with beautiful views and
It is exciting to work with Guests who enjoy what you offer them; in 2019 there will be added Charm to the kitchen, which is about to be refurbished in Carrara marble
Our Italians and US family had a wonderful week at Villa Murgiano. Special time for young ones.
The Villa is in a beautiful olive grove and vineyard but close enough to Florence and other points of interest. There are many places to visit, shop, and have rewarding, and memorable meals!
The pool provided a welcome break from the Tuscan summer temps and an endless source of fun for all!
We were warmly welcomed by the owner and staff. The Villa is spacious and super comfortable. The views are awesome.
It is without any reservations that we recommend Villa Murgiano for family reunions or just a quiet place to recharge one’s batteries!
This villa completely exceeded our expectations in every way: impeccably decorated, sparkling clean, rich in history and very comfortable-all at once! We were traveling around Italy in a family group with little ones as well as elderly relatives and the home had something for everyone. Katia thought of every single detail (crips sheets, white towels, every kitchen item a cook could require, gorgeous pool, multiple seating options both outdoor and indoor, pool towels, charming little coasters everywhere, beautiful wines and olive oils & many other special accents). If you are looking for a villa that will give you a special Tuscan experience and all the comforts of home-this is for you. The estate had a luxurious feel & we truly felt like we were on vacation. We were able to cruise in Firenze in under 25 minutes & also explore the nearby Tuscan villages in under an hour as well, we loved exploring & then returning to the Villa in the evening. Katia herself was a total gem of a lady, so warm and welcoming & had the most wonderful presence. We loved talking with her & she responded to our WhatsApp questions quickly. She made us feel that her home was our home during our stay, and for people who travel as much as we do, that was a unique and memorable touch. Thank you Katia for all!
Villa MURGIANO is very close to Florence, so that you can spend mornings exploring the City's museums and churches, then take a break for lunch at one of many trattorias. On your return enjoy life at the Villa, both indoors & outdoors, or lounge by the large, immaculate, infinity edge, private Swimming Pool.
If you prefer not to drive on any of the narrow Italian lanes, your options are walking to Mezzomonte (900 mt) to catch the public service bus into Florence (via Pozzolatico: www.capautolinee.it orari/impruneta); booking your private car with driver (ask owner), or riding in city cabs.
A car is recommended. Hiring two or three medium size vehicles for a group is probably the best option: Villa MURGIANO has a wide car-park, with shaded roofing for three cars. and you will enjoy increased flexibility, to make the best out of your short holiday, and explore as many places as you like. Greve, in the heart of Chianti (20 km from rental), has wine tasting sites and a pedestrian piazza with restaurants. Panzano (8 km further south), has a castle with nearby Il Vescovino Restaurant and a special Tuscan Steak House (www.dariocecchini.com). Badia di Passignano (20 km from rental) is an interesting Abbey with Cantinetta di Passignano - delicious fresh fish cuisine in the Tuscan countryside, etc etc - (www.chianti.com itineraries).
Villa MRGIANO's estate produces its own Chianti, IGT Red & White wines, aromatic and natural vinegars, and its uniquely special cold pressed olive oil - marketed in 1 Lt, 1/2 Lt, 1/4 Lt cans or larger packs.
Does it sound appealing? So does a Tuscan/Mediterranean meal prepared on site with local ingredients and sipping estate wines - a truly mouthwatering experience.
One recommended option is booking (ask owner) a Chef who comes to the Villa and prepares a 5 meal course for you - you may even consider choose to have one on arrival day: tasting the menu of your choice in one of the outdoor lounging areas, enjoying attractive views over the Tuscan countryside. The Chef's help will lay the table for you in one or another of the outdoor seating areas, to best suit your liking
