In Chianti, 6 km from Siena, wonderfully restored farmhouse fully equipped - Restored Barn, from 2 to 3 persons.



Updated: 21-Oct-2016
Three apartments in a lovely farm house, great and well kept garden, pool, views

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

Lovely week in a gorgeous part of Tuscany

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Castelnuovo Berardenga. The tastefully converted barn is perfectly located for visiting Siena, the Chianti region and further south to places like Montepulciano and Montalcino. It was a lovely place to come home to after a day out and about with a nice garden and swimming pool for relaxation and a lovely big kitchen and dining room for self-catering. Our host, Giada, was very friendly and helpful and the only negative was the difficulty we had accessing the WI-FI which meant we couldn't check the weather and places we wanted to visit as much as we would have liked. Apart from that one small point, a great place to stay!

Owner's Response: Dear Patrick, thank you very much for the nice review, I am glad that you found in the Restored Barn the perfect place to relax and visit Siena and its surroundings! As for the wireless Internet, finally the problem was solved and now there is a Wi-Fi line very good (you can see also the videos) throughout the property, and also in the Barn. I hope to hear you for another occasion, kind regards, Giada

Our Tuscan "Home"

  • 5 of 5

We selected Muricce because it seemed like a great location from which to explore Tuscany. It definitely was. We drove to Siena, Sam Gimignano, Monteriggioni, Colle di Val d'Elsa, and Montepulciano. At Giada's suggestion, we took the bus to Firenze. Great advice! But more than the location, our charming "Restored Barn" was a delightful place to come home to at the end of a long hot day of touring. We would take a swim, pour a glass of wine, and have a light supper on our covered patio, with only the sounds of birds. The kitchen was well equipped (even an American style coffee maker), and the bathroom was a decent size. The bedroom had a large, comfortable bed and a rustic wardrobe and dresser. Giada was absolutely helpful. We got lost on our way, and she came to get us! When the restaurant she had reserved for us for our anniversary dinner cancelled, she arranged for us to have a delicious, romantic, catered dinner on our patio. She called to book a winery tour when we were too late to do it online. She provided information on everything from buying groceries to nearby restaurants and wineries. The wifi inside was iffy, but we used our mobile wifi gadget (highly recommended with Waze app for driving in rural Italy). We will certainly recommend Muricce to friends travelling to Italy. We had a memorable week there -- a charming, peaceful getaway within easy driving to the cities and hill towns of Tuscany.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at the location (2 adults and one kid) and enjoyed it very much. Calm place, good location (7km from Siena), very nice and helpful owner. It was certainly not our last stay in the beautiful restored barn.

Welcome retreat

  • 4 of 5

What a welcome and refreshing retreat after 8 days in Rome and Sorrento; the expansive open view from the veranda over the garden and beyond was the perfect spot for morning coffee or pre-dinner glass of wine. The singing of birds in the morning was the best alarm clock and such a welcome addition to our farm experience. The owner's Jack Russel (Jack) and their 3 or 4 cats would come by for visits but never annoy. The bed was very comfortable, the shower had lots of pressure, ample towel hooks and the washing machine and drying rack very appreciated after 8 days on the road. The location is great; we made daily road trips exploring popular nearby sights several were recommended by our host; highlights we would have otherwise overlooked. There is a little grocery store 4 kms away where we bought fresh meat, vegetables, and some staples for the delicious dinners we prepared in the well equipped kitchen. The property was clean. comfortable, well situated and our hosts very friendly and helpful. We used the pool two afternoons for quiet reading and planning our next day's adventure. Rustic charm in the heart of Tuscany.

very nice place for our holidays

  • 5 of 5

Very friendly welcome by the owners of the restored barn. It was nicer than we expected it while booking period. Clean and fully equipped with more than the required minimum. Near by there is a friendly farmer producing oil and wine. Taste it, The olive oil is very fine. Good base for going to Siena and Monteriggioni by car.
