“No One Teaches You How To Say Goodbye”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

It was very difficult to say goodbye to such a lovely place. Michele and his wife were the most gracious hosts. Michele had a gift for us each morning when we woke (pepper jelly, vino, figs). Daphne, the family Golden Retriever, greeted us every morning. Beauty was all around us. Even though I had an unfortunate accident prior to arriving and was unable to walk the entire time I was there, Michele had a wheelchair waiting for me and I was surrounded with good friends to help ease my pain and stress. We were able to relax around the pool and Michele gave my husband herbs and vegetables from his garden so that he could cook a wonderful meal for us. Michele cooked two meals for us while we were there and they were both molto buono! The rooms are spacious and clean. This location is excellent and very close to many beautiful Tuscan hill towns. There were six in our group and we all love, love , love this place. As we drove away it was difficult to keep from crying. The ultimate compliment I can pay: It felt like home to me. This Tuscan trip has not been crossed off my bucket list. It has been updated to read I will return to Agristurismo Pratovalle without a wheelchair. Thank you Michele and Carla for being such gracious hosts!

We visited Pratrovalle in August 2013. Although there are some photos online, they do not do the place justice. There is now shaded areas for each apartment, covered in vines, that make the whole vista more romantic. The gardens and pool are very well maintained by the family, who take so much pride in making sure your visit is as special as possible. The owner, Michele would give us gifts in the morning of eggs and fruits grown on the property. Mid week, Michele and his lovely wife hosted a Tuscan evening, which was a highlight of our visit. We enjoyed produce and wines produced on the farm. The apartment was very beautiful, clean and charming. We were thankful for the wifi Internet provided free, but did find the seating a little hard.
A car is a must for visiting Pratrovalle, but many towns and cities are easily accessible. There is a large coop on the main road from Cortona to Arezzo which provides local products.
Would we return again? Yes, we are already planning our next visit, but this time we intend to make it a longer one. Well done Michele for such a beautiful and relaxing holiday.

Tutto e bellissima!! We went to Pratovalle two years ago for a week and this summer we retourned again. The enviroment, the apartment, the swimming-pool, the lovely, friendly owners are unforgettable. In the middle of Toscany, you can do excursions in the old very nice cities, meanwhile you can enjoy the calm, and the beauty of the region. I can suggets it for everybody.

Pratovalle is a lovely agroturismo with splendid view to Cortona and valley of Valdichiana. The building is almost new, all details in the apartments and in the beautiful garden are selected with a lot of taste and love by the owners. Michelle and Carla are really warm and friendly guests. We would like to thank them for their kind wellcome.The dinners they prepared for us were wonderful- complimenti al cuoco ! We will for sure return to this peaceful, friendly place!

The place was great in all respects... location, cleanliness and Michele and his wife/family were exceptionally hospitable. Cortona (15 - 20 minutes away the house) is central to many great destinations, the train station, amazing vistas and lots of great restaurants. Only suggestion, we had 7 people and needed two cars. we had only one car and that was difficult sometimes although Michele was more than happy to drive us and pick us up. Also, there is a Taxi driver that services Cortona and the area and he was terrific, but having two cars instead of one would have been helpful. Other that that, it was a perfect place to stay.

You couldn't ask for a better location or nicer hosts. It really brings "under the tuscan sun" to life. We learned to make pasta, ate like kings after Michele's cooking class, soaked in the beauty of the area, and its central location to most of Tuscany. The weather was magnificent, although a little too cool for the beautiful pool. Their olive oil is reason enough to return (which we hope to do soon).

The vistas from Agriturismo Pratovalle were breathtaking. From the graphic layout of the olive groves, vineyards and crop fields to the view of Cortona, nestled in the near distant mountainside. The Pratovalle facility was perfect for family and friends. The layout of the immaculate suites offered both private and interacting spaces. The property owners could not have been more accommodating. They were so generous with their time - taking us places or seeing to our needs and desires. They were totally dedicated to making this a memorable experience for us all...and they succeeded!
