We ran out of adjectives when trying to describe this place. Perfect location and gorgeous views. Beautifully renovated farm house inside and out with ample room for 10+ and 5 star amenities. Everyone we dealt with was knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. We all felt like family by the time we left. An amazing experience. Mille Grazie to the entire Le Pratola team for making our Tuscan villa dreams come true
As an Australian with deep Italian ancestry, my visits to Italy are important; but none have been so intense as the absolute beauty of this amazing Tuscan villa.
Le Pratola is set in the hills, five minutes outside of Gaiole in Chianti. After a winding climb, the villa comes into view and the love affair begins.
The house has three double bedrooms, all with en-suits) in the main house, a triple room and a gym that is easy converted into another triple. Across the courtyard is another self contained double, perfect for the romantics!
The back garden is perfect for sundowners and then the front garden has the table for a sunset dinner. The courtyard is perfect for lunch out in the sun, followed by a dip in the stunning infinity pool or a nap :).
This 300+year old property has been restored from a aging farmhouse to a stunning example of Tuscan craftsmanship and artisanal skill. Nothing has been spared and the experience is as good as it gets.
Margherita is an amazing hostess who will stop at nothing to make sure your holiday is the best it can be. Elena's cooking is amazing and Laura looked after the cleaning every day with a smile.
I've been to Italy many times but nothing compares to the tranquil beauty of Le Pratola.
Le Pratola is an excellent villa. One of the few places I have been were reality beats the photos in the prospect! It has a magnificent placing up on a hill overlooking the skies and the breathtakingly beautiful surroundings. The spot with the infinity pool is just perfect.
The house is restored and decorated in a way that gives harmony and serenity. There are many areas in and outdoors to socialize- it is just to select your place according to the wind and sun. It i so good with all possibilities for activity - pool table, table tennis, soccer, gym, game, music in every room - just to plug in your unit, outdoor fire pizza owen.
The kitchen is fully equiped and works very well for massive Italian cooking :). Le Pratola is well looked after - everything you need is there and it is clean. Extra plus to lovely Laura and Margarita for help and guidance and making us feel so welcome.
We were a family of 9 and that was perfect.
We enjoyed the most perfect stay at Le Pratola. Beautiful house with every amenity you could wish for. We also thoroughly enjoyed our cookery class with Barbara and 2 wonderful dinners prepared for us by Monica.
Could not have wished for more.
Our group pf nine just spent a wonderful week at Le Pratola, near Gaoile in Chianti. The villa is as advertised- beautiful. The surrounding countryside is so enchanting it's sometimes dream-like, whether it's in bright sun, or as the sun goes down over the hills, bathing everything in a magical light. We went on day trips to Florence, Sienna and Montalcino, really enjoying the drives.
The best part, though, are the people involved with the Villa. Best ever in terms of service, kindness and skill.
Marguerite runs a great show. Francesca met us in Gaoile and guided us up the path to the house. Our favorite was Elena, who cooked us breakfast every morning, and did 4 dinners for us, all different, all locally sourced, all delicious, all done with great grace. Monica cooked us a superb birthday celebration dinner, high end restaurant quality.
It's hard to imagine anything better, and we will be back for sure.
