Beautiful Stone Property w/ Pool & Superb Views in village with Bar/Restaurant

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

One bedroom garden apartment with pool in Tuscan hill village. Sleeps 2-4.

La Taverna is a very special garden apartment. Completely made of stone it seems as though it is carved out of the rock. There are 2 large rooms having golden stone arched walls and beams. Both have glass french doors leading directly to the garden. Ideal as a romantic hideaway. There is room for a child as well, and it's also great for two couples.

Outside the living room is a walled stone courtyard where you will spend a lot of your time - eating and sipping drinks. Leading out from the bedroom is a private lawned area, shaded by hazel trees.

Over the wall from this private garden is a communal pool area with an inviting swimming pool set in lawns. The pool is shared with just three other properties, all English owned, on a south facing hillside with wonderful views across the valley to the hills beyond.

Situated in a small farming community with a bar and restaurant. No cars pass by, only the cows! Experience Italian village life - verdant hills for walking, crystal clear river pool and you can still dine out for €10 including wine & coffee.

Zauberhaftes Ambiente

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten eine Woche in Prota. Die Wohnung ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Wir hatten alles was wir brauchten. Nur die Internetverfügbarkeit läßt noch zu wünschen übrig.

Beautiful place

  • 4 of 5

We had a good stay. The house is beautiful and (not unimportant) nice cool. The garden and swimming pool form a good base.

The bed is beautiful, but the bottom is not so firm.

Very good restaurant just around the corner

Leuk "apart" huis met complete inrichting ineen leuk dorpje.

  • 5 of 5

Mooie rustige omgeving. Huis is eerder geschikt voor 2 personen, dan voor 4 personen.

Mooi zwembad. Wifi is alleen bij de buren beschikbaar. Eigenaar mag wel wat alerter zijn met verstrekken van informatie.

Wer Ruhe, Natur sucht, ist da gut aufgehoben

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben zwei Wochen in La Taverna verbracht. Alles war wie im Online-Inserat beschrieben. Die Wohnung war sauber sowie die Anlage. Der Pool wurde regelmäßig gepflegt! Schöner Ausblick auf die Berge von der Terrasse aus. Von dort aus kann man schöne Ausflüge in der Umgebung - Cinque Terra, Nord -Toskana und die Dörfer und Städtchen drum herum machen und sich dort ganz gut auf Märkten bzw. in kleinen Läden mit regionalen Produkten versorgen. Wir haben die Ruhe in Prota geschätzt, nach der Hektik in den Küstenorten!

Einziger Wermuthstropfen: Die Straße zwischen Crespiano und Prota (die letzten 2 Km) ist sehr eng, teilweise recht steil und kurvenreich! An manchen Stellen passt nur ein Auto!

In Mondi können wir das Restaurant Venalia empfehlen.
