"Everything we hoped for and more"
MY wife and I stayed here for a week as part of a mini tour of italy for our honeymoon. We were not disappointed and were sad to leave for a 5* in Rome!!!
It is worth noting that Hotel Prategiano is exactly what it looks like and does exactly what it says on the tin: A rustic, family ran, countryside retreat set in some of the most splendid surroundings. If you are expecting the Ritz then please do not apply, as if you are fussy, you will always be so.
After the long drive from Venice we descended into the hills and after soaking up the epic scenery and beautiful hilltop medieval villages, we would have been disappointed if Hotel Prategiano had been any different.
We were initially booked for 5 half day rides, but we ended up doing the full day 'river ride,' which included a camp fire style barbacue and picnic lunch.
The riding was flexible and was booked by an informal chat in the evening with the guide, Andrea, who was always full of humour and easygoing. If you are not into horse riding, the area is a haven for ramblers/hikers, mountain bikers and quad bike enthusiasts. It is also nice to have the option to chill out by the pool or in the jaccuzzi, which always goes down well after a day in the saddle.
The whole beauty of this location is that you are surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery and medieval, hilltop villages, the nearest being a 10 minute walk into Montieri. Be mindful that whilst most at the hotel speak excellent english, the locals have never really had a need to, so you may need to brush up on a few Italian phrases! The beach at Follonica or Punt Ala is only 40 mins away, Siena the same and Florence and Pisa approximately 1 hour 30 mins.
The food on the whole was very good, comprising of basic rustic dishes and tradtional dishes for the region to roast beef and mash.
The rooms were basic, but clean and cumfortable, and in general keeping of the surroundings. On the whole the staff were always helpful or at hand to fix a drink or snack.
To conclude we enjoyed every minute of our stay at Hotel Prategiano, and look forward to having the opportunity to revisit on our anniversaries for years to come.
"What a find!"
My Girlfriend and I love to horse ride and road bike. The hotel and area in general is superb for both activities, The Hotel is simply amazing, it feels like a large chalet. The staff were funny and welcoming and to be honest it felt like we had made friends rather than been waited on or just another customer. You wanna ride? Ride, you wanna chill? chill, easy. Most notably I have to say the food was incredible.. Everyday we were treated to the most delicious traditional foods from the region. Being British it was so refreshing to be surrounded by other nationalities rather than our own. I actually proposed to my girlfriend on an all day horse ride. The lunch was again more than we had bargained for, the Italians love to eat and be together. Such a memorable experience. If you road bike the roads are infinity better than any in England and you cannot take a bad photo of the views and vistas. Every village is beautiful. After 4 hours riding around the hills the hot tub was more than welcome! I would go back tomorrow and my girlfriend is planning the honeymoon
