  • A Gem in Chianti

    "I just spent two weeks in Tuscany with my husband and another couple, and for the second half of the trip we stayed in the lovely Ovile cottage at Muricciaglia. Our goal for this vacation was to spend most days hiking on trails through the Tuscan countryside, with dinner usually at some restaurant in a nearby village. Muricciaglia was a beautiful and serene home base for hikes in the areas surrounding Radda. Ovile is an ancient stone structure which has been renovated with all of the modern comforts, including an excellent kitchen - if you want to cook and eat in some night to take advantage of the great local produce - and also quite good wifi. The cottage is situated on a hillside above Muricciaglia's olive groves, with a tranquil patio overlooking the partly forested and partly cultivated hills on the other side of a small valley. You don't actually have to get in your car to explore the countryside, because from your doorstep you have access to a system of local trails which are very well-marked and which can take you to the nearby town of Castellina for a morning cappuccino (a 45 minute walk) or even to Radda. The physical beauty of the setting is enhanced by the warmth and graciousness of the owners of Muricciaglia, Mimma and Franco. During the time we were there, in September, Franco could often be found on his tractor, working and overseeing operations and I think preparing for the olive and grape harvests. But he would readily jump down whenever this guest wandered by, to give suggestions for walks and trails. Mimma was also attentive to our interests and needs, and since we'd said we might like to rent bicycles, brought us information on how to do so. And she showed the utmost care and kindness when I had the bad luck to find myself sick in a foreign country. I'd picked up some sort of travellers' bug before I arrived at Muricciaglia, and I panicked when it wasn't gone in a few days. Mimma brought me a selection of teas to help calm my stomach, and then took me to her personal doctor to make sure that everything was OK! I highly recommend Muricciaglia to anyone who is looking for adventures in the Chianti region, or who just wants to enjoy a peaceful stay in a stunning part of the world."

  • Late Summer/early Fall Harvest Trip

    "Santa Virginia and the Morfini family and staff's hospitality was exceptional during our month stay at this amazing property. The pictures are very accurate and don't do the property justice as the views in any weather are breathtaking and spectacular! The warm days at the early part of our stay allowed us the use the pool and grounds like a summer retreat and as the weather turned cooler we were allowed to learn about the vineyard and cantina and feel a part of harvest and making of the amazing wines from this working tenuta. Duccio and Ana were very helpful with all of our questions and concerns and offered great advise regarding places to see and how to navigate the local area. This property is wonderfully located to reach the surrounding hill/wine towns and yet have close access to Siena and Florence for their bounties. I would without reservation recommend this property to anyone wanting a short or long term rental in a gorgeous Italian country style home for a special family getaway."

  • Traumhafte Villa, super Standort

    "Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Woche in der Villa Capella di Pancole. Die Anfahrt führt über eine ca. 4km lange Schotterstrasse zum Haus in das Arceno Gebiet. Die Lage der Villa ist einfach perfekt. Sie liegt ruhig gelegen auf einer Anhöhe, mit einer tollen Rundumsicht auf einem traumhaft schönen Anwesen. Der Pool so wie die Gartenanlage ist einfach wunderschön angelegt und sehr gepflegt. Das Haus hat eine hochwertige Ausstattung die in einem sehr guten Zustand ist. Die Angaben zur Villa in der Homepage wurden übertroffen. Des Weiteren haben die Vermieter alle wichtigen Informationen für das Haus und für die Umgebung in einen grossen verständlichen Ordner zusammengestellt. Sehr hilfreich. Die sehr freundlichen Vermieter Esther und Stefan antworten sehr schnell auf Mail-Fragen und wir erhielten enorm wertvolle Tipps. Auch Beatrice, welche uns vor Ort empfing, war ausserordentlich freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und können die Villa zu 100% weiterempfehlen. Viele liebe Grüsse aus Basel"
