Murlo House Rental Photos and Description
Quiet, traditional 2 bedroom house to sleep 4 in historic rural location
This comfortable and attractive house is built into the 13th century walls of the mediaeval hilltop 'castello' of Murlo dating from the year 1000, of Etruscan origins.
Set up like a townhouse, entry is off the picturesque central square opposite the world-famous Etruscan museum. A flight of stairs opens into a large Tuscan-style living room with traditional fireplace and comfortable furnishings. The spacious eat-in kitchen with washer, dishwasher, is on the same floor, as is the main bathroom with bath and shower.
Stairs lead up to the bedrooms. The master bedroom, facing over the hills, has a double bed. The smaller twin-bedded second bedroom is over the square and has a WC/basin en suite.
There is a private furnished patio and small garden with superb views of the Tuscan hills as far as the distant Siena skyline. The village is a pedestrian area; loading and unloading permitted. Typical pizzeria/restaurant across the square.

- I was born and attended school in the North of England, then moved to London where I graduated and started working. After living in Switzerland and the US, I settled in Milan, Italy. For the last 12 years I have lived in Murlo with my husband Camillo where we are both involved in tourism and the organisation and promotion of local events. .
It is many people's dream to live in Tuscany, and this house in the old walls of a picturesque mediaeval hamlet has been my answer. Being next door to our home, it is the perfect solution to put up family, friends and guests and to share the delights of this magical area with them.
- The benefit of being part of a tiny community (15 inhabitants!) in the midst of the magnificent Siena countryside. Alone with Nature but never completely on your own.
