About the property

Podere Casa Muricce is the place for people who love nature, animals, woods and relax.

Carefully restructured according to tradition, Casa Muricce is the typical ancient Tuscany house in stone: all the furnishings, even doors, are original from Tuscany houses of `700/'800. The house is in the middle of 13 private acres that comprises: olive trees, secular oaks and a young vineyard. There are also a fruit garden, orchard and a garden of aromatic plants: all the products and fruits of those are available also for hosts.

Our philosophy is: enjoy the nature, its energy, its colours. The panoramic position allows to even appreciate the light of the wonderful sunset drinking a glass of wine on the edge of the swimming pool or eat a wonderful “fiorentina” steak cocked in the barbecue. It often happens that in the silent of the evening you can see fallow dear or other animals. The hosts are not customers, but friends who share our passions, for this we are use to welcome them preparing a small Tuscany dinner.

The village of Mercatale Valdarno is just 900 meters far; there you can found market, pharmacy, baker, bar, etc. On the hill in front to Casa Muricce, just 2 km road, you have the panoramic medieval tower of the castle of Galatrona, where is possible to rise on top. Within 30/40 kms there are Florence, Arezzo and Siena (the first two comfortably reachable also by train from the station of Montevarchi that is far less than 10 minutes by car). Cortona, Montalcino, Pienza, Montepulciano,and the Val D' Orcia are distant approximately one hour by car.

Wonderful place, very helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

The location of Bucine is very convenient for visiting most attractions in Tuscany, from Siena to Arezzo, from Cortona to San Geminiano. The house is an old building carefully and tastefully renovated with all the modern amenities. Located on top of a hill it has beautiful views over vineyards, orchards and lavender fields to the many hills around. Inside, the apartment is spacious, very clean and nicely furnished with genuine antics. The surrounding space, including the large pool, is nicely landscaped. The owners, Massimiliano and Giulia were extremely friendly and helpful, as were all the members of their extended family. One evening Massimiliano spent several hours on the phone to help us when our rented car had a flat tire. They had many useful suggestions of places to visit and things to do around.

We highly recommend this property and will stay here on any future vacation in Tuscany.
