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
We stayed here one night while travelling through Tuscany with our three children, but could easily have stayed here much longer. It is a wonderful place with much history, beautiful gardens with a magnificent view, extremely spacious and clean rooms and a wonderful restaurant!
We hope to return.
We found this place random, and it s stunning, amazing view, great food, kindly staff, everything it s perfect :)
The yard it s very big, they have a tennis court, swimming pool, the birds don t stop singing in the trees. It s very joyfull
The main villa and the grounds are lovely and very well maintained. Staff is very friendly, too. Unfortunately, the rooms (at least the ones in the annex) are a bit out of date: you hear every footstep of the people above you, the bathrooms are quite old and not comfortable, and in spring, everything was quite cold. The food also was a tad disappointing, they try to create quite inventive and elaborate dishes (like a version of Bottura‘s parmigiano dish), but the result doesn’t live up to the ambition. Overall a decent place to stay if you want to visit the area, but not a lot more than that.
Staying in this elegantly proportioned and beautifully decorated villa in the quite countryside will refresh you completely. The check-in is easy, the staff are wonderful and helpful, the food is delicious and professionally served on the terrace (if it's warm!), the ambience is relaxed, and the house and gardens are lovely to wander around. There are bikes for customer use, a pool (and a pool table!), and there is even a runway on the villa estate a couple of km if you feel like dropping in!
Such a great place to get married... If you like the romantic atmosphere from Tuscany, you will fall in Love with this Resort. A great Wedding Location 😘 invite your family and guests for a perfect Weekend in Italy.
