About this listing
For those who love the peace and simple rhythms of country life, Poggio Pratelli is the ideal place. Immersed in the glorious Tuscan landscape, you can rediscover the almost forgotten scents and sounds of nature.
Our bio farm is located at the top of a hill , with a great view on the Arno valley.
Poggio Pratelli is a delightful hideaway in a perfect rural setting, but only 30 minutes drive from Florence. Part of the original farmhouse has been converted for the agri-tourism use. The apartment has been restored preserving the original wood-beamed ceiling and terracotta floor. The apartment is located on the ground floor, and accommodates 4, has two bedrooms, a large kitchen-dining room facing out to the garden, a bathroom and its own covered terrace. In keeping with environmentally friendly standards our heating is an integrated system which utilize both wood and solar panels. From the village of Poggio alla Croce, where you can find a restaurant, you take a dirt road bordered by cypress trees, and you reach Poggio Pratelli after 1,5 km. . In the surrounding it is possible to take beautiful walks. From the house you can walk up to the Monte Citerna, enjoy the view of Florence from one side and Arezzo on the opposite site, is a round walk of 1hca. We are also on the trail along the crest of the Chianti Mountains between Florence and Siena. I always suggest to arrive by car so you can easily visit famous towns such as Arezzo 30km or Siena 60km, and many other villages around, but If you arrive by train I will come to pick you there.
We live on the first floor and we are glad to help you whenever you need.
S.Polo in Chianti - 5km (supermarkets, post office, bars and restaurants), Figline Valdarno - 9 km (train station).
All around the house there is a natural garden, you can find your perfect location, for reading, or painting or laing on hammock. There is a barbecue and a swing.
Interaction with guests
I live on the first floor, and I work in the farm, so you can find me very easily. I'm glad to help my guests for any kind of information about events in the region, or I can book a restaurant, or drink a glass of wine together, also I am glad to introduce you to the extra-virgin olive oil tasting, olso explain you how we grow iris and the story of our bio cream done with the extract of their roots.
Our dirt road, 1,5 km from the village, is sure a particular impression at your first arrival, but it is also the assurance of the silence of our farm. I suggest to choose Poggio Pratelli for those who love the nature. It is the ideal place, immersed in the Tuscan landscape. Some times you can see dear, porcupine, or other wild animals.
To visit the region the best way is to have a car. The public transport from the village runs only twice a day: to Florence, or train station in Figline valdarno (8km) .
Other things to note
Whether you want to get fit in the great outdoors enjoy a holiday out of the ordinary. But at the same time you can easy reach the famous Tuscany towns, Florence, Arezzo and Siena.
We have wifi, but if you want "detox ",you can pu it down.
I wish to my guests to enjoy Poggio Pratelli and feel like at home.

Amo la vita all'aria aperta , le camminate, ma anche visitare le città. Vivo in una fattoria vicino a Firenze. Coltivo con il metodo biologico olivi (olio extravergine biologico),iris ( creme cosmetiche ) e zafferano. Intreccio cesti con rami di ulivo e altri materiali. Parte della casa è dedicata agli ospiti dell'agriturismo. Parlo inglese francese e tedesco. Mi piace viaggiare con la mia famiglia e con gli amici. Il mio motto è natura , bellezza e semplicità.
