An escapist dream – villas like this are hard to find. There is so much space for everyone inside and out, whether it’s on the shady terraces, the sunlit lawns spreading across the hillside, or the cool and comfortable lounges, each with their own fireplace. A very obvious highlight at Muricciaglia is the main terrace. Set on a balcony and sheltered by a sloping roof, this amply furnished area is an incredible place to enjoy each other’s company surrounded by some of the greatest views Tuscany has to offer. Well hidden from the outside world, Muricciaglia is a magnificent, and thoroughly private retreat.
Inside, you’ll find bright yet tasteful designs - neatly arranged, yet full of character and subtle detail. With high ceilings and terracotta floors, the bedrooms and lounges are relaxing cool places to retire after a day in the sun. However, they’re also easily heated by the open fireplaces. Throughout each houses, the style is classic and striking, with distinctive works of art adorning the walls. For a mid-to-large group of people who want nothing more than to leave the busy world behind, this is a superb destination.
