Fattoria Pratale0.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Fattoria Pratale was a great place to exclusively accommodate our ~75 guests for our wedding nearby and to have our BBQ rehearsal dinner. The location is amazing in the heart of the Chianti Classico area surrounded by vineyards and forests. The apartments are large, great for groups, and clean, although they were more on the basic side, but at the same time rustic and charming. The pools were also a highlight for our guests. The outside patio had a beautiful sunset view for our BBQ/wedding rehearsal! The manager Elena was very helpful during our stay. The only slight inconvenience was the check-in process for some guests, as the front desk was not always staffed, but otherwise it was a great choice!
Please ignore all the negative comments. I can only concur they stayed somewhere different to us. We booked 12 apartments at Pratale I for my daughter's wedding in September - some guests staying one week and some staying two weeks. We had the most amazing time ever. I don't understand anyone saying the accommodation is in need of refurbishment. We stayed the first night in Pratale II and both accommodations were extremely clean, well kept and everything needed for self-contained apartments was there. Remember, these are self-catering apartments, and they are in Tuscany, therefore, they are not going to be what everyone expects at home, but nonetheless, are in true wonderful Tuscan style, which is exactly what you want if you go to Tuscany surely. Every single guest was more than happy with no complaints whatsoever. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff and the endless effort they put into making sure every guest is happy and looked after. Eva lives on site and is on call 24/7 and cannot do enough for you, a lovely girl who works extremely hard. As for Elena, who we dealt from first booking, there are no words to describe how lovely and helpful she is. Again, she went over and above to help, answering emails without delay before we arrived and once there, in constant contact to ensure that all was well. We cannot thank them enough for all their hard work and making our daughter's wedding week a dream come true. We had 35 guests in all and each and every one of them said they had the best week of their lives, and that was not only down to the wedding, but to the wonderful Pratale. The position is indeed second to none, the views spectacular, the grounds pristine and the pools an absolute delight. It was of course helped by the beautiful weather we had, wall to wall sunshine the first week, and although cloudier the second week, we only had one day of rain. The position is perfect, ideally situated between Florence and Siena, with beautiful Sambuca within walking distance, albeit it down the track(!) and Tavernelle about 10 minutes away by road, which has a supermarket. If you go don't miss out on going to San Gimignano, the most beautiful little town you are likely to see anywhere, a sheer delight. I truly cannot say enough about Pratale, so much so that three couples have agreed to go back next year. Pratale and beautiful Tuscany will be in our hearts forever and is a place we will visit year after year, so if you have any doubts about booking, put them aside, you will never know what you have missed if you don't go, and cannot understand anyone being disappointed. See you next year Elena and Eva!!
We have stayed in Fattoria Pratale for 5 days. The accomodation was excellent, the room was in very good condition, very hospitable staff. A bit hard to find espesially if you are arriving at night. Definitely recommend it for holidays!
We have stayed in both Pratale 1 and Pratale 2 over the years and the position is second to none. Unfortunately that is the best bit. The property we stayed in last time is in dire need of refurbishment. The kitchen is dreadful and the bathroom is only just adequate. It is a shame as it could be wonderful. We found it uncomfortable, dark and dismal inside. The outside space was good and the staff although minimal were helpful. I would stay there any time if it was to be refurbished, but until then I think I will give it a miss.
Fabulous vacation stay. Loved the view, the grounds, the pool. Rooms were great. Kitchen was a bit limited in terms of equipment. We loved meeting other travellers. Location was not far off the main road. Central between Florence and Sienna.
We booked for a week but switched locations after 2 days. We were assigned "the" room on the ground floor - beware! I'm sorry to say but I can only concur with all the previous comments about a noisy room. The door to the adjacent appartment must be in cardboard. We literally could smell their cooking and hear every single word they spoke. And obviously they must have heard us too. That made us feel very uncomfortable. To worsten it - the owners know it and deliberately lie about it. The rest of the room: Sofabed was thin and not comfortable at all - for 2 kids 8/11. Lack of curtains to keep the light out. Noisy fridge. very very basic utensils in the kitchen. We are regular visitors to the region - and Pratale has made it #1 to our list of 'to be avoided' places. The swimming pools are awesome and the garden is very well kept. Do not expect privacy, every thing is very much shared. Conclusion: This region has much better places to offer where you would not be treated as a walking wallet. Price/Quality is off and the place has lost the good vibe that it used to have, years ago.
Lovely setting. Do not ever forget mosquito stuff if you go in summer. Overall very good. Proprietor of the place extremely unhelpful. To the point where we had to buy own bin bags and toilet paper. But grounds and pool divine
Fattoria Pratale is an excellent location surrounded by beautiful landscape, perfect hub for trips to Firenze, Lucca, Siena or other point of interests in Tuscany. We had a very nice flat with our own kitchen.
Just to experience Tuscany on a farm is absolute bliss. The accommodation is perfect, away from the noise and crowd. We were able to visit Montereggioni, Colle Val d'Elsa, Badia di Pasignano, and Greve.
We stayed in this wonderful place for 4 days and it was absolutely amazing. The apartment has a small kitchen that is more than adequate. There is a supermarket about 10 minutes away by car and Siena and Firenze are also an easy drive from there. There are plenty of places to visit in the surrounding area and lots of places to walk. The place is managed by Eva and she is a delight to deal with.
