Wine, Art and Beauty at Villa Le Prata all year round
Summer was very intense at Villa Le Prata and the autumn/winter season is no exception. It officially opens with the grape harvest and with a program of special experiences and activities that I will now tell you about. The uniqueness of a destination also lies in knowing how to renew itself continuously, offering always different experiences to its guests.
The atmosphere of Villa Le Prata is "Home away from home". Every moment is special and intimate at the same time, that intimacy that makes you feel at ease, thanks to the care and attention that the hosts reserve for every moment of the day.
And the house is truly special with its pieces of art scattered throughout the property, from the rooms to the common areas and the park, each corner is made unique by the works of different artists. These days, for example, the glass installations by Carlo Balestrieri are on display, both inside and in the park of the villa.
Then on October 15 with a dinner reserved for a few guests, the exhibition of Giuliano Grittini's Pop Art will open and the artist's works already present in some rooms and in the entrance, will flood many common areas of the villa. To be booked.
The feeling of being at home can be experienced in many situations. Like entering the beautiful kitchen, preparing dinner with the chef over an aperitif, or having dinner at the table with the hosts and together with other guests, if desired, are truly special and unique moments.
Or opt for an intimate dinner in the library, or in the cellar, or in the very romantic winter garden overlooking the park of the villa. These moments are to be booked and reserve a taste experience to share.
And the wine, the excellent Brunello di Villa le Prata, never fails to accompany these unique moments or with a tasting dedicated to the different vintages. It is also possible to buy it directly at the villa or by ordering it on the website.
The mild climate of this area allows you to spend many hours outdoors in autumn, and this still allows a lunch in the vineyard and a few baths in the heated whirlpool overlooking the rows of vines and enjoying the colors of breathtaking sunsets.
One of the special activities that will also last throughout the winter is the bicycle rides up and down the wonderful hills of the Val d'Orcia with Giulio, the guide of the house,
to warm your heart on your return with a grilled dinner cooked by the owners. The lit fireplace and the cooked delicacies offer unique moments and the desire to repeat this experience soon, with another ride on one of the many paths in the woods or on the road, in the midst of unspoiled nature, rows of cypresses, vineyards, among all shades of green that seem to be inside a painting.
Truffle hunting is another of the exclusive experiences that can be lived here. Accompanied by trained dogs, we go in search of the precious tuber in the woods.
The thrill of finding the truffle with the hound wagging its tail and waiting for its prize is priceless. Just as the tasting is priceless, washed down with excellent wines.
But Villa Le Prata in addition to being a place of escape and vacation also offers the possibility of organizing business retreats, meetings of small groups that in a quiet and inspiring environment, can share and discuss. The location is ideal for organizing small business meetings and team activities in a wonderful natural setting, with the right spaces and tools.
In short, a season full of opportunities opens to organize weekends, business meetings or off-season holidays of flavor, carrying out activities that help the spirit.
