Our Agriturismo, Hotel Prategiano, is situated in a peaceful and panoramic location on a large property surrounded by meadows and woods. Here, you will enjoy traditional stunning views over the hills and valleys of Maremma Tuscany. In addition, a short 7 minute walk brings you into the quiet medieval town of Montieri.
Our small 3-star hotel has the warm charm of a rustic Tuscan agriturismo with its terracotta statues, red marble stone walls, swimming pool with terracotta floor tiles, and porphyry stone-work. The spacious upstairs sitting area with a wood-beam ceiling, fireplace and windows framing the far-reaching mountainous view is inviting, and as you sit, the declious smells wafting from the kitchen will keep you waiting by the kitchen door.
The hotel and agritourism has 24 rooms, a bar, a restaurant, a small meeting room, and a large living room area with beautiful views. Internet points and a large TV are available free to our guests. You have a fast WIFI internet connection nearly in all places inside and around the hotel.
Outside, you will find a small garden perfect for a drink while watching the sunset. On clear days, you will have a wonderful view over Maremma Toscana until the towers of San Gimignano at 55 km away. Beneath the hotel terrace is a swimming pool, jacuzzi, and table tennis area, as well as covered and uncovered car parks. The horse stables are about 300m from the hotel.
Hospitality is fundamental at this quaint hotel. Our guests often share similar interests and find socializing and making friends easy. Grandfather Paradisi bought the hotel in 1971 and was one of the first people in Italy to offer country holidays based, above all, on horseback riding. The third and fourth generations of the family have also maintained this sense of hospitality and enthusiasm for horse riding and biking. Here, the Paradisi family will look after you along with a team of international employees.
We would like to create an atmosphere for you which makes you feel good. An atmosphere of happiness and relaxation which allows you to feel both in direct contact with nature and yourself, like a journey from your beginning roots to the future. When it’s time to leave, your suitcase will be so full of emotion that you will have difficulty closing it.
The main aim of our mission is summarized in the name “Rifugio Prategiano”, adopted as a symbol of Giano Bifronte. Refuge, because it is isolated, physically and also ideally, from the stormy interference of modern activities and the temporary fashions, and Prategiano (Prato di Giano) because it summarises the mythical Giano, dio bifronte (God). God of opposing faces (images), one who looks back in time and the other who looks to the future. It was in 1971 that Prof, Orazio Paradisi, born in 1928, firstly became a pedagogue and then director of a formation project, then as the Minister of Work and advisor with his own business activity. He co-involved the entire family, including mother, children and then the nephews Andrea and Emilio to establish Rifugio Prategiano and thats how it is known today: hospitality, yes, but more than a window which looks outwards, but also with a deep look into our inner-selves.
The wonders of nature have planted in our fertile minds something that with the contact of a variety of plants, animals and landscapes, it helps us to measure ourselves with our biological evolution, and in particular the horse our faithful, silent and decent partner. The Prategiano is a stepping stone towards an important experience for adults and formation of life values for youngsters. We give priority to the essence of reality, giving you the effect of nullity to “what is today’s fashion”, to understand the real sense of the things that happen around us.
