Labour of love

In 2006 we fell for a 600 square metre Tuscan farmhouse. We subsequently embarked upon a restoration project which has been a labour of love and not just for us- we were blessed to find an amazing team of craftsmen and professionals who gave themselves totally to Le Pratola – this love, dedication and perfection shines through. Please come and visit and experience this for yourselves- for a while, live the life of your dreams and create memories to last generations. Read about our journey in Italy Magazine here.

Ecological credentials

It is key to us that Le Pratola is as ecologically responsible as possible, therefore solar panels heat water, the underfloor heating is fuelled by wood and the garden irrigation is provided by collected rainfall water.

Water to Le Pratola is derived from it own well & water is softened & sterilised so suitable for consumption.

We encourage guests to recycle as much as possible, to naturally keep the villa cool and to decrease waste. To this extent we provide many of the kitchen, cleaning & laundry products required to avoid duplicate buying.

Please help us with our objectives of respecting the surrounding environment.


Our objective was to to create an oasis of calm and tranquility, a retreat from everyday stresses where everyone can re-energize and spend their precious leisure time doing things they most desire- dedicating themselves to family and friends, expanding their senses by immersing themselves in Tuscan culture and local sports or relaxing by doing as little as possible- maybe some swimming, reading in the shade or playing a game of chess.
