Bed & Breakfast
Casa Al Prato
Casa al Prato is an ancient farm house located in the small village of Lamole, in the heart of the Chianti Classico zone, 30 km south of Florence and about the same distance north of Sienna. The location is ideal for visiting the numerous vineyards of the area and for going on relaxing walks through the surrounding forests. The house has two private gardens, one in front, one behind, and perfect for outdoor meals. Upon request, we can serve breakfast or dinners composed of typical Chianti dishes. On the ground floor, from a little porch, you enter a living room with two beds and which opens onto a garden of mature plants and with an area of about 300 sq m. From the living room, you pass to a small kitchenette and then a passage with a wardrobe and a bathroom with bath and shower
At the end of the passage, you find another double bedroom with private shower. From the living room, a staircase takes you to the first floor from which you may also descend directly to the garden down an old stone staircase. The large first floor living room is truly the heart of the house, with wooden beamed ceilings, stone architraves and a fireplace dating from the 16 C. Opening off it is a large and ancient kitchen with a fireplace and antique furniture. From the living room, you pass into a passage which accesses a double bedroom with private bath and a wooden staircase that ascends to the top floor which occupies a smaller, turret-like part of the house where you find two further double rooms with private shower.
Rosso del Chianti
“Rosso del Chianti“, surrounded by a quiet and extensive garden, offers you a simply wonderful view across the valley to the hills of Chianti. The accommodation comprises double rooms with a generous double-bed, and each with its own bathroom ( shower, bidet, and w.c.). We are also happy to offer you, on request, our typical Chianti breakfast, where the local products, such as Marina’s much-loved ricotta cake, which she bakes the evening before, meet with much enthusiasm – a tasty way to start the day !
Let us tell you a little more about what you can expect from our/your Bed and Breakfast stay….
In a little living-room or “salotto“as we call it, you can browse through various magazines and brochures to gather any necessary information for planning your trips and adventures throughout Chianti. And we, of course, are always close at hand to help you fill in the gaps, and provide you with that special, local“insider- information“. For example …. A tour perhaps, to the destinations of your choice, accompanied by one of the top tourist-guides that we regularly use. A wine-discovery trip,or a guided tour through pretty little “borgo’s“and villages. And then there is a step back through time for those who wish to discover the Chianti of the Middle-Ages with its castle ruins and old churches – Just a few of many popular possibilities.
We must not forget one aspect for which our wonderful Toscana is world-famous – la cucina ! You can take part in a cookery-course, organized by us, which is guaranteed to give you a lot of fun and pleasure, not to mention the culinary knowledge to take home as a souvenir with which to spoil your friends.
We would also be delighted to set up a tasteing-buffet for you in our lovely garden, decked with traditional dishes, and accompanied by our various Chianti wines – an enchanting opportunity for you to reminisce your day and watch the stars come out…..
On that note, we can only say that we hope to have awoken your interest, and that it would be our pleasure to greet you and spoil you a little, here at “Rosso del Chianti“.
