From the window you can enjoy a beautiful view of the characteristic Tuscan landscape.

My husband and I spent five wonderful days at La Palazzina at the end of September 2016. We lodged in the Suite Independante which is on two levels. The ground flour houses the kitchen/living area while the upstairs has the bedroom with a very comfortable canopy bed and a large bathroom with soaking tub and separate shower. The photos on VRBO reflect the property accurately. The accommodations are perfect. Our hosts, Eloise and Alessio, run the agriturismo. They grow grapes and make wine, they grow olive trees from which they make olive oil (sadly, we left before tasting it or taking some home with us), raise animals and have a vegetable garden. Yet, despite their very busy lives, they were always available to us when we needed them. We loved lounging by and swimming in the infinity pool where the nearby lavender bushes inebriated us with their perfume. Murlo is away from the tourist crowds but close enough to enjoy the beauty of Tuscany. 30 minutes to Siena, an hour to Chianti, 1.5 hours to Florence, you can take a day trip or stay close to home. We did both. We cooked meals in the Suite, took our plates and glasses of wine outside to take in the beautiful view. We also enjoyed very good meals at Bosco della Spina and at Il Libridinoso very close by. We would definitely return to La Palazzina.
Had a wonderful 9 night stay at Eloise & Alessio's beautiful property. Our apartment, Palazinna was a very good size and typically rustic Italian which was just perfect for us. The pool area was fabulous and the owners were on hand to point us in the right direction for shopping, restaurants etc. Alessio's Prosecco was excellent and very moreish. Not too far from Sienna which is a lovely city and there are beautiful hilltop villages within a short drive. Scenery is just stunning and we didn't want to leave. We will definitely return and would recommend a stay here as it is just so relaxing.
Such a lovely place, and Eloise was extremely helpful and friendly. We rented an apartment and had 4 people staying there. The surrounding area is beautiful and close to many of the villages. Didn't use the pool as the weather wasn't warm enough but we did lounge around it. The beds were very firm but I think that is normal for Italy, everywhere we went they were firm. One thing that was unexpected was the lack of supplies, we had to buy our own dish soap and things like oil, salt and pepper, etc, which I have never had to do with a vacation rental before. Make sure you buy some of Eloise's olive oil, I only purchase one jar and once I got home wished I had more.
A great place to stay in Tuscany
The suite was very comfortable with air con in the bedroom which was a must in the hot evenings. The whole family were a delight and Eloise was always on hand to help out with any advice. The pool area is fabulous but beware of the bugs. A great place to stay for Siena and other Tuscan favourites. I would definitely recommend this accommodation.
