A 17th-century Tuscan villa set on 800 acres with an outdoor pool, tennis courts and a private airfield
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).
