I travelled with my wife and 20 year old daughter and stayed 2 nights in Le Prata. As well as being an interesting household visually with art everywhere, you get the sense of a home about Le Prata. In the midst of their own Brunello vineyard, the house has an olde worlde grandeur about it . Marialuce and her daughter, Benedetta are extremely kind people and were very accomodating. They greeted us every time we returned from Montalcino (3km away) with the offer of fresh coffee or Brunell wine.
I would recommend this house as a great location to use as your base to explore the interesting and nearby towns of Montepulciano, San Quirico, Pienza and Castellione D'Orcia and especially Bagno Vignone (Roman bath town - spectacular).
