Splendid 18th century mansion with typical Sienese architecture. It is situated next to the historical village of Basciano. The house position is ideal because one reaches the Chianti region in a few minutes or can enjoy the culture and convenience of the city of Siena (6 km away).
In the property there are three independent holiday units (Villa, Guest House and Restored Barn ), recently renovated and fully equipped. Each unit has its own entrance and its private terrace with garden furniture. The pool is reserved exclusively for the guests of the three units.
It is possible also the rent of the whole ensemble (with the three units Villa, Guest House and Restored Barn) for groups of 8-14 persons, in this case the swimming pool is private and also the garden.
The mansion is surrounded by a garden with oak-trees, linden-trees, cypresses and a terrace full of many Mediterranean plants, where one can relax and have a pleasant stay outside. The swimming-pool is 6m x12 m and is situated on a terrace with pergola. From the terrace there is an excellent view of the hills including, woods and fields. The estate is situated at an altitude of 350 m above sea level. The climate is usually full of sunshine with a light breeze

My spouse, 14 year old daughter and me spent three weeks at Villa Murrice in April 2009 as part of a sabbatical leave. Our first contact with the owners was very positive. We wired funds from overseas in advance of our stay without any difficulty and the final accounting at the end of our stay was fair and accurate. The electricity and gas meters were in good working order and the readings taken by the owners were fair. One of the villa's strongest point is its location: about 10 minutes by car from Siena or from the main road to Florence, yet located on a quiet road in the lovely Tuscan hills. The house has a lot of charm and the grounds are lovely. We rented the larger apartment; it was spacious and extremely clean. The owners speak many languages including fluent French and English. They were discrete yet willing to help and provide useful information on the area whenever we asked. We cannot comment on the use of the pool: it was closed as we were too early in the season. The villa is well placed to visit many interesting villages. We particularly enjoyed San Gimignano, Radda in Chianti, both close by, and Montepulciano. In summary, we enjoyed our stay at the villa very much and recommend it for short and for long stays.

We enjoyed a truly relaxing week at Muriccie following a busy few days in Venice and Florence - it was just what we needed. Property is full of character and fine for a family of six. Very well equipped - pool, dishwasher, washing machine, BBQ, Internet Wi-fi, AC in bedrooms - all were well tested during our stay. Property is very comfortable with nice views across rolling hills and the village of Baciano. Only a short drive from Siena, excellent location to visit others towns around. We will definitely go back.
Emergency cancelled our Stay. Giada was friendly. We will reschedule at Villa Muricce.
We stayed for 2 weeks with our 2 adult sons and their partners, in the truly Tuscan atmosphere of this wonderful, very clean villa. In a very quiet location with all equipment one could ever think to need, including the clean swimming pool, we got to relax and enjoy the environment. Great access to Siena with a busstop at only 200 meters. A special note about the owners: they were very friendly and helpful; they even arranged a cosy and instructive cooking class in the house with a wonderful professional cook; we enjoyed a real italian pasta pesto, a rabbit dish and semifreddo. We hope to succeed in preparing it as good in our own home...
This is our favourite rental of our 4 trips to Italy. The villa is immaculately kept and very well equipped. The kitchen has everything possible to cook with and lots of dishes - also dishwasher, clothes washer, oven and cooktop. The 3 bedrooms were all spacious and comfortable. The private courtyard was my favourite spot and smelled heavenly in the evening from the jasmine that grew all along the wall. Our hosts Giada and Marie-Eve were wonderful. They were so helpful to us, including suggesting a great restaurant for a special dinner out and organizing a taxi to take us there. The highlight of our week was a cooking class put on in our kitchen. Piera (the chef) with Giada as interpreter taught our family of 4 to make some traditional tuscan dishes. It was so much fun and the food was fantastic. I would highly recommend booking this extra. The villa is set in a beautiful property with lovely gardens and a private swimming pool. It is an easy drive into Siena and well located to get to all the popular hill towns. We hope to get the chance to stay here again.
Ciao, Our stay was excellent and Giada and Maria Eva could not have been more inviting and hospitable. The quiet of the country was much more enjoyable than the very noisy Siena proper. It was excellent! We had a rental car which is a must living in the country side and parking next to our apt. We stayed for 3-weeks and took many day trips that were very enjoyable.
The property location allows a pleasant vacation in the countryside, and is a good point of reference for visiting Siena (5 miles), Florence (35 miles by the highway, which is 8 miles away), Castellina in Chianti (10 miles), Quercegrossa at 2 miles (shops, bars, post office, chemist’s, restaurant, pizzeria).
Mountains, sea and lakes are 50 miles away. Thermal baths, riding-school, tennis court, mountain-bikes (to rent) in the surroundings (10-20 minutes by auto). Beautiful walks in the countryside
