Combining good looks with plenty of style and home comforts, Villa Merlo, Tuscany, is an idyllic country escape for a group of family or friends and part of the exclusive Viesca Toscana estate.

This luxury villa in Tuscany is set amid softly undulating hills and ancient forests and meadows, where you can sometimes spot deer and hares darting about the countryside. The lawned garden and outdoor living and dining areas mean you can live an extremely al fresco life here. On one side of the house is an infinity-edged swimming pool, with shaded loungers, where you can while away lazy afternoons, enjoying the scenery.

When you need a little shade, escape inside to the cool of the villa. Local craftspeople have been employed to build much of the furniture, while softly coloured upholstery and furnishings bring an eclectic ‘country manor house’ feel to the property. The living and dining area flow elegantly from the open-plan kitchen which makes for easy gathering for memorable meals and socialising.

Five double bedrooms comfortably accommodate up to ten people, each with an en-suite bathroom or shower room and plenty of light and space. We would recommend arriving early to put your name on the charming attic bedroom for its fabulous views of the estate. During low or mid-season Villa Merlo is available to rent as a minimum of three bedrooms for smaller groups.

You’ll be well looked after throughout your stay here, with staff on hand to take care of anything you need. You’ll also be able to make the most of being guests of the Viesca Toscana estate, which has its own spa, including gym, sauna and beauty rooms as well as a fabulous restaurant and other facilities such as wine tastings, tennis lessons, cooking classes or cycling. So whether you want to venture out and socialise or simply relax in the privacy of Villa Merlo, you can make your Tuscan adventure everything you want.
