LA CAPRAIA is a medieval village, perched on terraces in the Pratomagno hills at 600 mt. above sea level, overlooking the valley of the Arno River.
The main buildings of the village with its little squares have been sensitively restored, retaining both the original characteristics of the old houses and the warm atmosphere of refined country residences.
The farm LA CAPRAIA surrounds, protects and enhances the village with its olive groves and the evocative, Mediterranean scrub which is to be found along the many exciting walks through the countryside.
The restaurant offers a wide choice of wine and the chance to taste typical local dishes of a high standard in a place full of character and local charm.
In a nutshell, LA CAPRAIA assures you a pleasant and relaxing stay, with a perfect balance between modern comforts and fine, old traditions.

Il Praticino is a holiday farmhouse nestled in the Tuscan hills between the provinces of Florence and Arezzo. It opened for business in 1987 and has always been run according to a different philosophy from most other accommodations in the area. The premises and everything which relates to them have been designed to protect the surrounding environment and to provide guests with a truly genuine experience of living in direct contact with this amazing area. People who choose Il Praticino love to relax, take long walks in the hills, good food (real, traditional meals) and can do without TV.
The farmhouse is ideal for people looking for a little refreshing quiet, true relaxation and the most authentic Tuscan countryside experience.
Bird-watching, photographic hunting, sportfishing, guided mountain hiking, mountain-biking, paragliding, ballooning, hunting, gathering of mushrooms for guests, etc. are just a few examples of activities that guests can enjoy on more than 100 hectares of our land amid chestnut woods, meadows and pastures.
The farmhouse, however, is also ideally located to reach the most important cities of art (Florence, Arezzo, Siena) and the best-known areas of the region (Chianti, Pratomagno, the forests of Casentino) by car in just a few minutes.
