About the property

2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms 1 kichen and sitting room and sofa -bed.Private space

Il Prugnolo is situated in Tuscany, in the Chianti area,between the villages of San Casciano in Val di Pesa and Mercatale in Val di Pesa. This charming zone has always been covered by vineyards and olive-groves producing valued wines and oils.

Little villages, parish churches and castles of great cultural and historical interest, make the most of this countryside.

The holiday house 'Il Prugnolo' is an ex rural building which is constituted by a barn and a farmhouse, dating 1500. Until 1960 or so, it was entrusted to Prince Corsini's peasants. In 2007 it was wholly restructured but it maintains its ancient features: the floors, the ceilings and the Impruneta's brick vaults.

This spot of Chianti is situated on a fascinating hill at 310 meters above sea level. Conti and Guidi family runs the holiday house 'Il Prugnolo' and welcoms its guests at their arrival.

Extremely Pleased with the Accomodations

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 6 nights in the first week of September. We rented the two bedroom apartment. The apartment was cozy but well equipped with everyday needs. They have a very nice lawn and play area outside which our daughter enjoyed a lot.

Sonia is a wonderful host and was very helpful in terms of making our stay comfortable. She went out of the way to pick up my wife and daughter from nearby village when our car needed a jump start and we were waiting for the tow truck. She was always enthusiastic about helping us and also suggested places to visit during the stay. There were also everyday items like oil, salt,milk,even fruit juice etc in the kitchen and a basket of goodies on the kitchen table when we first arrived.

The place is located between two towns of San Casciano and Mercatale and is close to (driving wise) restaurants and grocery shopping. Also the location good for day trips as many Tuscan towns like Florence, Siena, Pisa are within an hour to hour and a half.

The only problems we faced were some communication issues because of the English-Italian conversion. We also had difficulty finding the place initially because the translation from Italian to English did not go perfectly in the directions to the property. The last but not the least was some mosquito trouble.

Overall it was a wonderful stay and Sonia is a great host. We would definitely recommend her place .

Such a dream come true!

  • 5 of 5

I could not say more positive things about staying at Mughetto, Sonia was so gracious and the place was just what I imagined staying in Tuscany. We were close to many cities for day trips, she helped set up a golf game at a nearby course, we found a small wonderful restaurant for dinner less than a km away. Sonia showed us places to go on maps she had for us at the house, we took her advice and had wonderful day trips to Firenze and Siena. Quiet, peaceful, and beautiful just about sums up the location. Would stay here again in a heartbeat, thank you so much Sonia and family!! Grazie, Grazie!!

Well-situated, comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for day trips in Tuscany. Apart from Florence, which is why we chose this location, we also visited Pisa, Lucca (lovely), San Gimignano (a must!) and Siena.

Il Mughetto is a very clean and spacious apartment on the ground floor: two bedrooms, two bathrooms (a big plus for our family of five), kitchen, sitting room and a small private patio, not to mention the huge garden with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. The only minor inconvenience is the wifi, it only works from the bedroom next to the kitchen.

The owners, Sonia and Sauro, are very kind and welcoming. We would not hesitate to return!

Lovely quiet and relaxing hillside apartment

  • 4 of 5

Only viable if you have a car due to it's off the beaten track location. A great CO-OP is a couple of miles away in the nearby town. The apartment has a good kitchen though no oven. Two great bedrooms and two really nice bathrooms with showers. There was one working TV with predominaantly Italian channels. No air conditioning but the apartment stayed comfortable. The wi-fi signal was weak forcing us to find a better signal outside at times. The small above ground swimming pool was clean but too cold for us to brave. A shame because the weather was hot and the view and ambience enchanting. Sonia is charming and helpful and can communicate adequately in English. Overall a very clean and enjoyable place to stay. My one gripe was being charged 3 euros to use the tumble dryer on top of 3 euros to use the washing machine. Very hapy with the value over all though. A heated pool would have made it 5 stars for me.

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

Sonia was a great host! We booked at last minute with her and the communication and process was very easy. She make us felt like we were home.

The apartment itself had everything we needed and was clean.

Location is excellent, 15 minutes from Florence, 30 minutes from Sienne and also perfect for driving around Tuscany. Restaurants near San Casciano gave us the best meals from our entire trip. Good to be away from the crowds of big cities.

Would stay there again!
