About Mario Sica
I am a retired Foreign Service official (Ambassador by rank), living in the place with my wife.
Why Mario Sica chose Prata
This property belonged to my family for the last 170 years. The house is documented since 1650, and stands right on the place of the outer walls of the medieval castle were in the XII-XIII century. Since the castle dominated the place, a magnificent view can be enjoyed, encompassing most of the Tuscan archipelago (the Islands of Elba, Giglio, Montecristo, the Argentario promontory) and, when visibility is good, even the French island of Corsica.
What makes this House unique
Splendid views and green valleys (with very few houses) reaching down to sea.

De très belles vacances dans un endroit magnifique
Notre famille a passé de merveilleuses vacances dans un cadre idyllique. La maison est située dans un village perché sur une colline, tranquille. La vue est imprenable sur les collines toscanes et l'ile d'Elbe au loin. Nous avons profité de la terrasse spacieuse, et de toutes les fonctionnalités de la maison (trois salles de bain).
Pour compléter le tableau nos hotes Odette et Mario ont été charmants et serviables. encore un grand merci à eux deux.
Je trouve que l'évaluation de M.me Gaubert, que nous avons été ravis d'accueillir, a bien saisi le caractère particulier de notre maison de Prata, dans ses aspects structurels.
We were of course delighted to receive Séverine Gaubert and her family. I find her review especially descriptive of some of the main features of our house: the view, the spacious terrace, the three bathrooms, the tranquillity of the village.
Two must-see places within 15' drive:
- Massa Marittima, splendid medieval city
- Saint Galgano 13th century roofless Abbey and nearby chapel
