In the small Tuscan town of Peccioli, an hour’s drive west of Florence, the Pratello Country Resort is a 17th-century villa set on 800 acres of olive grove. The rustic retreat is home to a swimming pool and tennis courts that overlook the surrounding cypress-studded hills. Each of the 15 rooms is traditionally Tuscan, with dark wood furnishings, antique pieces and intricate mirrors. The Suites come with separate living areas and whirlpool bathtubs. Breakfast (an impressive spread of local salamis and cheeses) is served alfresco in the summer, and light bites are available by the pool throughout the day. In the evening dine on classic Tuscan dishes paired with wines from local vineyards, either in the dining room or on the terrace. The hotel can arrange a tour of the grounds, including a tasting of the organic extra virgin olive oil produced on-site.
In the Area
Peccioli is a cute hilltop town with bags of character. Stroll the charming streets, stop by the Piazza del Popolo to see the Praetorian Palace and the church, named after St. Verano, or hit the market on Tuesday mornings. The town is linked to neighboring municipalities by nature trails that cut through the countryside. Join a tour and tasting in nearby Chianti or head to the Tuscan capital, Florence (around an hour’s drive away), to explore the city’s greatest Renaissance sights: the Medici chapels, the Uffizi Galleries and the Accademia (home to Michelangelo’s David).
How to Get There
All was great except the lack of wifi... We landed at the beautiful grass airstrip and we were escorted to the hotel about 500m away. The rooms, the breakfast and the dinner were excellent. Wish I had stayed more...
Stayed here with family for 5 days and this is a great place to stay. The hotel has traditional feel but felt modern at the same time. The main building is in very good shape and you can that money has been spent to keep to date. Pratello is a good location if you are flying into Pisa. Its only 40 mins from the airport but also very close to Palaia and Peccioli where you can get some very good meals for exceptional value. San Gimignano is also only 40 mins away with some stunning scenery along the way.
The hotel's capacity is around 40 people so it is very intimate and quiet. It felt at time that we had the place to ourselves especially around the pool. The views from the terrace where breakfast and dinner is served are amazing. Breakfast is ok, not the biggest spread you will have seen but the dinner was fantastic, really tasty food. The pool is a few mins away from the main the main building however the pool bar was only open from 12-3. This was a bit strange as getting any drink or food outside of those times was a bit of a hassle. Overall a lovely place with spacious rooms in a great location. Service from the front desk was good and also very helpful.
2 nights here with family. The immediate impressions were wonderful - beautiful buildings and gardens and extremely welcoming and friendly staff. The rest of the stay didn't disappoint. Food was lovely, and lounging around the swimming pool within easy reach of the poolside bar was a delight. Would absolutely recommend and definitely plan to come back
