Val di Prulli is located on a property of several houses about 2km from Cavriglia. It's a tiny cottage well restored with good fittings and furniture. The gardens are well maintained and from all areas there are excellent views of the Valdarno.

The pool is a short walk away from the cottage passing the main house. It is a lovely area with fantastic views. To one side is a pergola with table and chairs. Around the pool are umbrellas and sun-beds.
From the small furnished terrace Val di Prulli is entered into a kitchen/dining area. There is a wooden table with a couple of comfortable chairs. The kitchen is fitted with hobs, small oven and fridge. There is no freezer. There is a wall mounted TV in the room.


A sliding door leads into a comfortable size bedroom with double bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers. The beds has a mosquito net. There is a good size bathroom with shower.
The owner lives in the main house near the cottage. They are available for all queries.
Val di Prulli is not far from a small airfield where there is some weekend private plane noise. Also not far away is a road that cannot be seen.

The owners may make occasional use of the swimming pool, but try to ensure their guests have as much privacy as possible.


The air conditioning at Val di Prulli is charged weekly when used.

Pros Fabulous views across the valley and farm. We were very warmly welcomed and got a vegetable box delivered daily from the farm garden which was lovely. We couldn't have been more looked after! We had a fantastic stay. They also make their own Grappa, Vin Santo and Wine as well as honey and you can purchase these from the wee shop on the farm at any time. We were wonderfully looked after and had an extremely relaxing time - the pool is perfect with great views for your sole use.
Cons Nothing - everything was great!
Local attractions Arrezzo - great day trip! Fabulous lunch at Lanzio d'or restaurant in the Grande Plaza. Rada is a beautfiul medieval town with wonderful shops - again good for a half day/day visit.

Pros We really enjoyed our stay at Val di Prulli. Although small, the accommodation had everything we needed and the beautiful, well-tended gardens more than compensated for the lack of inside space. We really appreciated the lovely pool in the high temperatures. The owners were extremely kind and gave us delicious home-made cantuccini, as well as produce from the garden. The location was excellent too for visits to Siena, Florence, Arezzo, San Gimignano and even Venice and Rome.
Cons We cant think of anything we didn't like!
Local attractions The railway station at Montevarchi was very useful. We went to Venice for the day by train, and you could easily get to Florence or Rome too. We had never been to Venice before and it was well worth the train journey to see this beautiful and unique city. We used the Co-op hypermarket in Montevarchi, which is very easy to find.

Pros De mooie omgeving en de rust. Het zwembad was prettig en netjes onderhouden.
De eigenaars waren zeer vriendelijk en maakten zich vrijwel onzichtbaar. Een aantal ochtenden stond er een mandje met verse groenten eitjes klaar. Ook werden we twee keer verrast met vleeswaren en vlees. Het huisje was klein, maar wel prettig en netjes.
Cons Er liep een weg vlak langs waar we vooral bij het zwembad toch wel wat last van hadden. Verder is het huisje toch wel erg klein, maar aangezien wij mooi weer hadden waren we toch voornamelijk buiten.
Local attractions In het dorpje Cavriglia ligt een pizza tentje, waar voornamelijk pizza's werden afgehaald, maar ze hadden ook twee tafeltjes buiten staan. Hier hebben we heerlijke pizza gegeten. Ook is er een soort van cafeetje als je het dorp in rijdt, waar je heerlijk kunt zitten en ze lekker ijs hebben.

Pros The owner's were very gracious hosts. The gave us produce, eggs, brusuitta?, cheese, salami, and grilled pork.
Maybe it was a freak occurrence, but we saw two amazing, huge, long-lasting rainbows to the east of Val di Prulli in the evening within 3 days. The first was after a rain, but the 2nd was on a day when it had not rained. They lasted much longer (40-50 minutes?) than most rainbows we normally see.
Cons There were 3 power outages during our 2-week stay, although it was restored each time by throwing the breaker switch.
Local attractions The train station in Monevarchi was very convenient for trips to Florence and Venice. Lamole outside Greve in Chianti is an excellent restaurant, although you virtually need a GPS to find it. Another good restaurant with a great view is Bar-Ucci in Volpaia north of Radda in Chianti. All the wineries and little towns (Radda, Greve, Panzone) are very nice, but getting there means you are driving on step roads with many switch-backs and hair-pin turns with no guardrails (you'll be in 2nd and 3rd gear most of the time).

Pros The owners of Val di Prilli made our stay there one of our most enjoyable and memorable holidays. They accomodated us in whatever way possible, while giving us privacy to enjoy our time there. We cannot thank or praise them enough ...
The apartment is finished to a high spec and is very comfortable - an ideal place to relax and chill out. The pictures do not do it justice ...
The location is excellent. Close proximity to the A1 makes it a very good base from which to explore the surrounding Tuscan countryside.
All in all, a very authentic taste and experience of tuscany ... we will definitely be returning!

Pros The villa was lovely inside, very high quality decoration and fittings and with all of the facilities that you could possibly need. The gardens and pool were excellent with absolutely gorgeous views! We really enjoyed sitting out on an evening with a glass of wine watching the sunset!
I think that we were most impressed with the hospitality of the owners. They were so kind and helpful, despite us not speaking much Italian and them not speaking much English! The first morning we woke up to some homemade biscotti and a bottle of olive oil that they had produced! Throughout the week their kindness continued and we were very sad to leave!
We hope to return at some point in the future!
Cons There were only two slight criticisms that we could think of. The first is that from the description of the property we thought that it was separate from the main farm house, and had not realised that it was connected to the farm house with it's own private entrance. However, this was not a problem, the owners left us in privacy and once inside the villa you would not have known that it was effectively underneath the house. The second slight criticism is that the bed was not very comfortable, however we have put this down to being used to a memory foam matress at home, and therefore it might not be a problem for others!
Local attractions There is a gorgeous gelateria in Cavriglia (2 mins drive from Val di Prulli)! We visited there most days! We also really enjoyed visiting Arezzo, it was a lot quieter than Florence/Sienna/Pisa with a really beautiful square with some nice restaurants that you could sit out at. It was nice to go somewhere that wasn't too touristy! We also researched parking in Florence and Sienna before we went so that we didn't get stung by parking charges in the centre (30 Euros per day in Florence! Very expensive!) - if you look before you go you can find free car parks and then get a bus (very cheaply) into the centre of the town!
