Il Grande prato (the big meadow) awaits you at the top of the pristine countryside of Toscana's 'Chiantishirè.
Nestled in the Valdelsa, it is perfectly situated for day-trips of discovery to nearby San Gimignano, Volterra, Pisa, Florence and Siena.
The heart of the Il Grande prato is the 200 yr-old farmhouse where guests of all ages can relax, sleep, eat and take part in workshops, retreats or enjoy games, billiards or books!
Swimming pool, tennis courts and exercise room are on-site, nearby excursions from adventure camps to horseback rides to museum tours can be planned on request.
You are welcome in the warm family atmosphere from the moment you arrive. Out of our country-style kitchen, authentic Tuscan meals prepared by our Nonna are served 'family-stylè accompanied by olive oil and wines from the area.
With a pinch of creativity and a dash of good humour, you'll find at Il Grande prato our three main ingredients are mixed in: R&R, conviviality and of course, a smile!
Whatever the occasion, from a silent get-away to a large family reunion, a writer's retreat or a yoga camp, to wedding receptions, in our 20+ years, Il Grande prato has served as the beautiful setting where you can watch a gorgeous Tuscan sunset over the rolling green hills.
