Had a great stay in Tuscany. Though this listing is not in Radda in Chianti as listed, we really enjoyed our time there
This was a lovely place to stay. We were greeted with pasta and sauce upon arrival & given great recommendations from Chef Massimo. There are two different patios to sit on and enjoy your coffee or wine. And we also took a cooking lesson with the owner - much fun. Massimo also greeted us at the local gas station and drove us up to the property when we arrived. And it just so happened that Massimo needed to go to Florence on the day we were driving back to the Florence train station and he went with us - which was a godsend because we would have clearly gotten lost - and Hertz was no where to be found. He got out several times to ask others & helped us locate it. Definitely an amazing experience, greatly recommended!
We dealt with the actual host Mossimo (owner of La Pruneta) more than anything, but Elly seems to coordinate things/arrival. She was easy to understand and responded rather quickly.
The real star of this property is Mossimo and his family, who made us feel like part of their family ourselves. Not only is the property and surrounding area a beautiful place to visit, but the charm of staying on Mossimo's estate is definitely recommended. We even enjoyed a delicious, traditional Italian meal prepared for us.
You will have to drive or arrange private transport of your own, but is worth renting a car to tour the beautiful hills and cities in Radda, Castellina and other wine towns. Would definitely go back!
We had a fantastic stay in Podere La Pruneta and highly recommend it to everyone.
We spent 6 nights staying here. Its in a lovely setting with olive trees and vines and fine views of the surrounding country side. It is peaceful.
Massimo and his family made us very welcome and we had a relaxing time.
The accommodation is very basic, and the room very small - it must get hot in full summer and there are no windows to open . The bed was comfortable and there were may places to sit outside in the sun or in the shade.
Massimo took great pride in showing us the improvements he'd made to the farm and his wine making facilities. He had plenty of suggestions replaces to visit, including wine tasting and local restaurants .
This was the perfect place to unwind after a busy two week trip in Italy! We felt right at home on this beautiful farm. We loved the pets too! Massimo and his family were so gracious. Massimo provided many wonderful tips on where to visit with easy directions. The farm has easy access to trains to Florence or Rome and is an easy drive to the other hill towns as well. We would recommend a stay here. Thank you so much for the wonderful hospitality!!!
