Guestbook comments from the manager

Fantastic place, close enough to Florence for the trip in the city to never be an inconvenience, but far enough away that you get the country-side experience. Lots of amenities (billiard/snooker table, small private soccer court, nice pool). Everything was clean and well organized when we got there.

Loved the house and location.

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of 9 friends visiting Tuscany. We found Villa Merlaia to be a great location and a roomy and charming house. We had a wonderful time enjoying the terrace and the pool. The location up on the hill is several degrees cooler than Firenze. Best of all getting in to Florence was easy — as soon as you get used to the winding mountain road that leads to it! Bus or car transportation both worked well, especially if you are willing to walk a ways into the center. Andrea the landlord was SO nice! We only wished there were more restaurants nearby.
