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
Stayed for 2 nights in an apartment for 6.These are in a building next to the hotel.Everything about the apartments and the hotel was lovely .The pool is a really good size for swimming and jumping in! The hotel Is maybe not so suitable for younger kids.Its definitely a grown up place but the gardens and the staff were fantastic ????❤️????
Had a couple of nights here recently and was extremely happy to have chosen it.
Lovely room, excellent staff, very good restaurant for dinner, breakfast OK but nothing special, lovely gardens/swimming pool/tennis court ...
Altogether homely and suitably upmarket.
We were so overwhelmed by the beautiful house and grounds after visiting last September that we are returning with our daughter in two weeks.. We booked a two bedroomed apartment 'Santa Maria' in the grounds of the estate and had the best of both worlds; with the addition of an balcony, lounge and kitchen. Breakfast was included and served each morning on an outside terrace with breathtaking views over rolling countryside. The food was amazing and prepared freshly each day. My daughter and I are on gluten free diets and there was a selection of dishes at dinner and even home made cake for breakfast! Every area of the estate was clean and well cared for and all of the staff were so welcoming.
