Our Activities

Here is what we offer

testo alternativoPratelli Castle is perched on a hill surrounded by woods and olive groves. Environmental sustainability has characterized the action of man over the centuries, even when no one thought this problem, but it was simply to ensure the regular availability of renewable resources for themselves and their descendants. Thanks to this attitude, steeper slopes were in time sweetened with terraces, where the typical crop of olives, practiced extensively, is in harmony with the surrounding woods. Walking along the paths around the castle you’ll often see a roe deer jumping out elegantly, or perhaps a wild boar to its typical stampede.
This atmosphere of harmony and balance between man and nature live in Pratelli, in its apartments and exterior spaces. The swimming pool has an amazing view of the Arno valley, confirming the validity of choice of those who built the watch tower (see history). The space around is equipped with sun beds for the utmost relaxation. A corner of solarium area is covered by a wifi network with internet access.
Outdoors there is a ping pong table and a little bowling pitch. If you love fishing, in our small lake you can undermine the carp or pikeperch, or just enjoy the wild ducks and herons stationed there.
You can visit the cellar of the farm, where we produce our own wine and extravirgin olive oil Toscano Colline di Firenze IGP organic.
Around Pratelli, you can visit the villages of Figline Valdarno, San Giovanni Valdarno, Montevarchi, Reggello, Loro Ciuffenna, Pian di Sco with their lovely old towns, the shops and markets of the country.
Pratelli Castle, given its proximity to the gate Incisa-Reggello of the A1 motorway and train station Incisa in Val d'Arno, is in a strategic position from which to explore Tuscany. Florence, Arezzo, Siena and Pisa are within short distances, if you avoid the highway, you will enjoy the typical famous landscapes in the world. Before leaving, however, do not forget to ask for some suggestions to the owners of the castle, about things to see, but especially the places less touristic and the original atmosphere, to appreciate the authentic Tuscany.
Another place not to miss is the Chianti area, just 20 km, with its towns and villages, vineyards, wineries and all the initiatives that revolve around wine.
Another area of great interest is the mountains of Casentino, with the typical villages of Poppi, Bibbiena, Stia and Pratovecchio, the traditional manufacturing of wool "Casentino", the important abbey of Vallombrosa, Camaldoli and Chiusi della Verna.
The upper valley of the Arno has grown in recent years an important presence of outlets of major brands of fashion, so as to bear the title of "fashion valley". So if you like shopping, you will find a few kilometers from Pratelli The Mall, Fashion Groove, Fashion Valley and a little far Prada Outlet and Valdichiana Outlet.
If you prefer sports, in addition to trekking in the woods around the castle, in Incisa and Figline you will find tennis courts, and if you practice golf, the green of Circolo Golf Ugolino, the most ancient of Italy, is only 20 km far.
