“Just what we needed”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

My wife and I stayed at Il Pratone mid October. Many Thanks to Pietrina, Jasmine, and everyone else that made our stay wonderful! They serve great food, wine, and cheeses. We enjoyed peaceful, relaxing days at the farm and day tripped to some great hill towns and seaside towns with ease with a car. Make sure your back for dinner! Great views and beautiful dogs are some highlights of the farm. We stayed in La Stallina and it was perfect for the two of us. Thanks again and can't wait to come back!

We stayed at „Il Patrone“ at the beginning of June this year. A family with 3 kids and grand parents. We lived in the apartment “Yasmin” and in the suite for two people.
We looked for holiday apartments with no need for cooking and we found “Il Pratone” in Toscany. It was our first experience with “agriturismo”.
To begin with the summary: it was perfect! The country side and the charming family of Pietrina, the owner of “Il Pratone”.
We all enjoyed the swimming pool and especially the silence, our children were fascinated from the animals, notably the small dog “Lucky” and the small baby-pigs. We have done everything, which can be done: from cheese production with Francesco to pizza baking with Pietrina and Yasmin. But the real highlight was and is “the art of cooking” of Pietrina. We started the day with the way up to the restaurant and with a great breakfast and ended in the evening with an amazing dinner and the way home with glowflies. Even the grand parents (nearly 80 years old) had no problems with “the long way home”. Everybody (even the children!) loved the meals and the offered variety.
We loved it to stay at “Il Pratone” and we will come back! Thank you for beautiful holidays!

We stayed 10 days in the appartment Jasmine. We already tried several agriturismo's ,never had any problems with it.

1: We love the animals and the nature, but I never had piglets in my kitchen! The house is at 20 meters distance from he pigs. ans the piglets are walking free everywhere, near the pool, in your garden, in your house.(not funny if there completly covered with mud) Try to sit in your garden, after they put water on the meadows, to create mud for the pigs, it's smells very bad. Why can't they put the pigs further away (they have enough place)

2 : Try to take a shower, and you have to clean the complete bathroom. It's just a hole in the floor, not a real shower, The beds are really bad if you have a back problem

3 : The pool is old and realy dirty, there is a automatic cleaner in the morning, but it can't reach all the places, They never clean the rest. When we where there, the pool was damaged, one side came completely off, They promised to repair it, (when we left, it was still damaged.) Carefull; the foto on there website is misleading, the pool is 6 X 12 meters.

4: Dinner was ok, but basic, not much variation. For that price, I suggest he restaurants in Montegemoli or Pomarance

5. They are friendly and you have a wonderfull view, but they should to made some improvements (exampe ; There was almost no shadow in our garden, and the people from the first floor can see anything you're doingn no privacy), just place a few wooden stick, and plant a grape or something for shadow, made a pergola, it takes one hour work!

6: There are mosquitoes, you can find a protection to cover your bed . But in our room , there was nothing to mount it, not even a hook.

7: They speak almost no English, so the communication is diffucult, (f you don't know any Italian )

Sorry folks,bit I was disappointed,

If you look for a real authentic agriturismo, providing the best product you may expect from Tuscany. This place is owned by a very friendly family, producing cheese (pecorino and ricotta), and vegetables you will be serve at dinner. The flats are located nearby the farm, in a beautiful place overlooking a typical tuscan landscape, far from any road. The restaurant is located in a different building, less traditionnal. But believe me, the food worth to stay here for dinner. Don't expect luxury in the flats, but they are clean and big. The swimming pool aera is also very pleasant.

We didn't have enough time at this charming Farmhouse. What made it so special was the owner--Patriena. We told her we enjoyed cooking and she had us come 1/2 an hour early to dinner so we could help her cook. The meal was amazing!!!! Maialino (roast baby suckling pig), a meal I'll never forget.

The farmhouse itself was rustic. Big beautiful room with a romantically-drapped bed. The view of Tuscany was breath-taking--just picture postcard perfect - just everything you'd imagine Tuscany to be.

Good location-we drove to Pisa, San Gigmignano and Florence.

Room Tip: Arrive early in the day so you can take advantage of the pool and walk around the property. We did...
