Guestbook comments from the owner

Dearest Jade,

I would like to inform our satisfaction for your welcome and your villa was perfect during our stay with the couple Laveson-Hardt in the week 10-17 April 2010.



Everything worked perfectly: heating, hot water and we found the house extremely comfortable.



I hope to return in September with my son Mikael!

Best wishes to you all and especially to your very kind Mother

Villa Murrice in April 2009

  • 5 of 5

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.

Wonderful week in a beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

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.

Excellent stay at a very clean and large Apt.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect location and comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place for a family celebration! Had a fantastic time. The home is beautifully furnished and so spacious and well maintained. We think your location fantastic and spent hours sitting at the table outdoors enjoying the sunsets. Friends, family and amazing food cooked by Piera made our visit so memorable! We would highly recommend.

Slice of Tuscan heaven

  • 5 of 5

The villa was stunning and the grounds were immaculate. Everything you would wish for a perfect Tuscan getaway. It was great to meet Giada who was a perfect host. She made my family and I feel extremely welcome and everything essential was provided for. I recommend this property for all types of travellers, especially families.

Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

Group of four of us from the UK (three adults, one child) stayed for a week in this lovely villa. Everything was clean and tidy and as described, and the owner was very friendly and helpful. The setting of the property was very nice, and the pool was lovely on a (surprisingly hot) day! The villa stayed nice and cool throughout.

The location was excellent, very convenient for Siena and the Chianti region, and central to many wonderful sights such as Monteriggioni and San Gimignano. Plus the nearby village (Quercegrossa) had a couple of very nice restaurants.

Would definitely recommend this property and would very happily stay here again in future.

I hope to welcome you to another occasion, it was a pleasure to meet nice and smiling persons as you!
