Marrucola
Reviewed 13 August 2015

Went to San Miniato to attend a wedding but it's not convenient to stay at the Marrucola unless you rent a car as it is remote and difficult to find. Google Maps placed it about 2km away from its true location but thankfully I managed to wheel my suitcase up and down 2km of road with no pavement in the searing heat and felt an air of euphoria as I finally got to the place and had a dip in the pool which had a lot of people in but it was fine. Was riddled with mosquito bites on the first night and the air con had no remote to keep the coolness down so I had to get up through the night to take cold showers in order to try to sleep. Was knackered the next day and in the end I stayed somewhere else for the rest of my trip, not because I hated this place so much but because of it's inconvenient location. Would be fine if you're there to get involved in their wine tours, which I didn't ask about. There is only one taxi driver in the whole of San Miniato so ask the hotel to call him well in advance if you need him. Reception only works about 8 hours per day here so if you have any questions you might have to wait for someone to come out of the kitchen but there's no guarantee this person will speak English. Awful wifi here. Nice view of the Tuscan countryside. Breakfast is very limited but there was a kind of lemon cake that I think was homemade and was delicious.

Room Tip: I chose the suite but I wouldn't bother with it again. No real benefit.

Hello,
We're disappointed when read the comments that have no sense .
I reply immediately explaining that your complaints are false
How can you say that the Marrucola is not in a good position? ? is exactly 700 mt from the village and still enjoys lighting of the highway .
The air conditioning works perfectly , the next time before you say it's broken and write a review try to ask at staff
The reception is 9-13 15-19 but there is always someone , since my family lives here.
In San Miniato there is only one taxi but we are available for our guests ( just ask )
For the wine tour (again you have asked nothing ! )

Breakfast is simple and genuine

we Appreciate the criticism that help us improve but this is without reasons , probably the holiday on a farm is not for you !

We were here last year for a perfect 24 hours. The Room was huge & airy, the pool was perfect, the setting was gorgeous but the best of it was Ezio & his family & staff. They were so welcoming we felt very much at home. We had walked over 35km so were exhausted on arrival. Ezio's cheerful & generous hospitality quickly had us feeling relaxed & happy. The food was excellent. I'm allergic to milk & eggs. That didnt cause any problem at all. We had a delicious meal with great local wines. We couldnt recommend this place enough. Gillian.

We had a fantastic stay at Marrucola. The host Ezio was very nice and made sure that everybody was entertained. The appartments were spacious and clean and the beds were very comfortable! The dinner at Marrucola was also amazing! 5-courses of Italian deliciousness. In the evening after dinner, Ezio entertained us all with some karaoke and I have to say: this man can sing! Amazing. The other guests were also not to shy to do some karaoke, so that made for a very enjoyable and entertaining evening. Thanks for everything!

We stayed at marrucola for 6 nights in august. The location was perfect as its at a walking distance from a small willage and stunning nature. The other guests (all ages) and the people working there were very friendly. Dinner and lunch were always a lot of fun. Food was inexpensive and very good. It was prepared in italian style with antipasti, primo, secondi and something sweet. Some nights the owner sang opera for us (hes amazing at it). We were free to have a look at the farm by our selves and taste the grapes. The owner also took us on a wine tour were we got to taste his wine and he explained the provess of making wine. I would recommend this wineyard to anyone, especially couples, families and friends travellibg in small groups. It was the highlight of our vecation in italy!!

We have spend a day off in this B&B just around the pool. the view is astonishing, pool clean and we also had lunch buffet that was good and enough. th eplace is very relaxing and I would suggest to people travelling in this part of Tuscany for a relaxing day. The price is very good 10 euros for the swimming pool and 10 for lunch. you do need to reserve before... don't forget.
