At Hotel Prategiano, one will experience the natural beauty of this special part of Tuscany. With refreshing mountain air in your hair and warm southern sun on your face, you can set out to explore picturesque hilltowns, old crumbling farms, ancient monasteries, medieval villages, primeval forests and blossoming fields. A clear, sparkling river is never far away, and from the next hill you are bound to see the ocean and the coast of Maremma Tuscany. Participate in a wine tasting, or dine in a typical Tuscan restaurant; every day is a new paradise.
In the heart of the Alta Maremma, the guests of Hotel Prategiano quickly become friends and share together the tranquil atmosphere. Often, our guests choose to join the traditional midday picnic offered by the hotel. This full course meal will wake the Italian love for life and a certain southern lightness of being, while bringing international friends together.
In Maremma Toscana there are equal opportunitites to relax in the sun as there are ways to enjoy an active holiday in Tuscany:
Sunbathing by the swimming pool terrace: Enjoy the fantastic view from the hotel garden or relax by the pool; both locations feature sunbeds for your comfort. Temperatures in Montieri are comfortable even during the summer months, and the hot water of the heated mini-pool allows for a soak outside even during the cool months.
Picnic excursions: Nearly everyday, horseback riders, bikers, cyclists and hikers meet for an outside picnic. These lunches feature a full-course hot meal in beautiful Tuscan places.
Italian kitchen with Tuscan and Maremman specialties: The hotel restaurant features a daily dinner menu with two options for first and second courses (one option is always vegetarian). A salad buffet and dessert are always included. There is also the option of dining “a la carte”. The “fruits” of the woods such as wild boar, mushrooms and chestnuts are typical of local meals.
Cultural excursions: Siena and Massa Marittima can be easily reached by public bus. Additional excursions are easier with a private car: Follonica, Florence, Volterra, San Gimigniano, Castiglione della Pescaia.
Mountain bike and Cycling tours: The ups and downs that surround the agriturismo thrill both lovers of road bikes and mountain bikes. Along every route you will find small medieval villages, miles of quiet asphalt roads, wide dirt roads and 500 km of well-signed single trails.
Horse riding for experienced and beginner riders: For over 40 years, Hotel Prategiano has been providing horseback rides that cater to all levels of riders from experts (with all-day rides), to beginners (with one hour walking trails). On horseback you will experience nature in a special way and have lots of fun, too!
Trekking and Walking: Our hotel in Tuscany lies in the middle of an extended, well-indicated network of trails throughout the countryside. On these paths you will discover a natural and peaceful region of Tuscany Italy far away from streets and cities.
Walk to medieval Montieri: The small village of Montieri is situated one km from the hotel. This quaint town became famous thanks to its coppe and silver mines in the Middle Ages. Now you can enjoy the quiet atmosphere of a time passed.
