Le Pratola is a large (600 sq metre), luxurious family home with 5 bedroom & bathroom suites and is perfect for families or groups of friends. The villa has two sitting rooms, dining room, designer kitchen, games room, gym and WiFi throughout.

The villa is set around a large central courtyard with a stone brick pizza oven and a barbeque area and there are three terraces for al fresco living. The heated infinity pool is open April to mid-October, is ring-fenced from other areas of the garden and is surrounded by wide open lawns. The two hectares of secluded gardens are filled with vines, olives, cypress trees and local herbs.

Villa Le Pratola has a proud 500 year history both as an important farmhouse and as a look-out for monitoring the advance of the armies of Florence and Siena as they waged war against each other over several centuries. The villa’s thick stone walls, central courtyard structure, strategic hill top position and watch tower represent this history.

Le Pratola was once part of the Rocca di Castagnoli estate which in the eighteenth century was one of the area’s most celebrated wine and olive estates, as noted by the Grand Duke Pietro Leopoldo in 1773. In 1924 Rocca di Castagnoli, together with nearby Brolio castle’s Ricasoli family and a few other successful wineries, created the Consortium of Classic Chianti wine, the official body for Chianti.

Rocca di Castagnoli estate continues to produce wine and it’s most successful wine is a merlot/sangiovese supertuscan wine called ‘Le Pratola’, named after the villa that was once part of the estate and which is now under private ownership for your enjoyment.
