The Villa itself is spacious and beautifully updated. It is fully equipped for fun and comfort for all ages. It has a solid sense of history, but has been tastefully and generously updated, especially the spacious bathrooms and bedrooms. The Villa is very well maintained and sparkling. The grounds have beautifully tended flowers and plantings everywhere. The view from the windows and patio is expansive. I would recommend this Villa to all, not only because it is so comfortable, but because the owners live close enough to help when needed. From the first minute we arrived, their pride and concern for our comfort was evident. They went above and beyond in helping us in many ways. They provided maps and detailed lists of restaurants, shops, hikes, schedules for train and taxi. The location is close enough to the charming "Old Town" area of Prato, that we were able to walk to shops, gelato, and restaurants. The easy train trip into Florence made that city and its activities just a few minutes away. We can't imagine a more perfect place for a holiday.

La Grande Quercia it can be found on the dominating hill side of Prato. Prato and its province are situated in the heart of Tuscany, nearby the most famous art cities of the world: Florence (Km. 18), Lucca (Km. 50), Pisa (Km. 82), and Siena (Km. 79). This area is the ideal destinations for tourism. These cities can offer a mixture of art, culture, nature and the history of textiles, a story which is still present and modern days and around which it has developed the richness, the sense of the welcoming and comfort between different cultures and ethnics in the city of Prato. The province is made up of seven municipals: Cantagallo, Carmignano, Montemurlo, Poggio a Caiano, Prato, Vaiano and Vernio. It is a very variable territory able to offer high levels of historical and cultural attractions starting from the Etruscan period passing through the Middle Ages until present day. In spite of its recessed position the house is near to the main basic services such as: train station, highway, commercial centers, cinema, and theatre.
