La Capannina is an independent cottage located at the far end of the hamlet Pretaccione in the heart of the Chianti. It has a large private garden with several terraces and private covered parking.
From the car park there are a few steps up to the house, where there is a covered terrace furnished with an iron table and cushioned chairs. From here there are views of the surrounding fields, vineyards and forests, typical of Tuscany.
Going through a large glass door into the villa is the spacious kitchen. It is furnished with a wooden table with six chairs. Along two walls is the kitchen unit which has plenty of work space and is equipped with gas hobs, oven, fridge with small freezer and dishwasher. The room, like the rest of the villa is paved with large terracotta tiles and has the traditional Tuscan ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta tiles.
Passing under an arch there is a the huge living area. This characteristic room is open over two floors with a mezzanine floor on one side and a large supporting column in the centre of the room. In a corner is a large, terracotta brick fireplace. The room is furnished with two double sofas and an armchair. Steps lead up to a small landing from where there is access through a glass door to a sunny, furnished terrace facing the pool area and the rest of the hamlet. Further steps lead up to the mezzanine floor which has a couple of armchairs.
From the landing there is access to a small hall, which also has a door to the terrace facing the pool area. At the far end of hall is a bathroom with shower. Up five steps from the hall is a double bedroom which can be set up as a twin on request. The bedroom has a high ceiling and is furnished with a large wardrobe and a chest of drawers.

Exiting a second door from the bedroom there is a small corridor, off which is a bathroom with shower. To the other side of the corridor is a double bedroom, that cannot be made into a twin. In the room is a large 3 door wardrobe.


It is about 200 metres to the swimming pool and tennis court.
If you require a twin bedroom please request it when booking.

Children are welcome however there are plenty of stairs inside and outside of the villa

Location: Pretaccione

Podere Pretaccione, 1000 year old, was once the home of itinerant priests. Located in the heart of the Chianti Classico wine region, Pretaccione provides a restful, rural setting just 20 minutes from historic Siena. The main building has been carefully restored into eight spacious apartments, each comfortably furnished in keeping with the terracotta floors, stone archways and beamed ceilings. A large swimming pool and tennis court with garden furniture are set on a lawned terrace just below the farmhouse.  The ancient stone patios provide expansive views of the Arbie River as it winds through the valley toward Siena.
The houses all have private gardens with terraces furnished with tables and chairs for al fresco eating. The pretty village of San Sano, 4km away, boasts an excellent country style restaurant and a small grocery store with a bar.
Pretaccione is on the property of the Dievole Winery and spa, a short drive or a healthy walk up a country road. Visitors are always welcome for wine tastings and special dinners at the winery.

Pros It's isolation and peacefulness. It was a good spacious villa
Cons Long way from booking in at Rada and the villa, so we arrived in the dark. Glasses and kitchenware not really adequate for 4 adults
Local attractions The Trattoria in San Sano was excellent

Pros The owner was most upset last season with the disruption to guests with the noise in the nearby field. This was out of their control and they apologise for the inconvenience.

To Tuscany recently visited Pretaccione and spoke with the winery owner of the fields around the hamlet. He has confirmed that there will be no further noise disruption. A vineyard has now been planted and the baby plants have begun to grow.

Pros Lage war sehr schön ruhig , naturnah , das hat uns gut gefallen

Sehr sauber, kaum Tiere im Haus

Die Küche ausreichend eingerichtet

Super viel Stauraum, das war toll, die Kleidung hatte so genug Platz

Die Handtuchhalter, die man warm machen könnte, wären prima, denn bei uns war es schon etw kalt abends, und die Handtücher wären sonst nicht getrocknet
Das war sehr angenehm
Cons die Straße dahin ist mehr als renovierungsbedürtig Es geht leider kein Handy, wir mussten bis zum Marterl gehen oder fahren , bis wir telefonieren konnten Das Wohnzimmer war etw ungemütlich , Insektengiften fest installiert an allen Fenster fänden wir sehr gut, denn lüften geht so einfacher , unsere Vorgänger hatten dankenswerterweise einen Insektenvorhang ins Schlafzimmer Fenster installiert , über das wir sehr dankbar waren. Es war mühsam geklebt. Wenn dort ein Festanstellungen angebracht werden würde , wäre das prima ! Der TV hatte keinen deutschen Sender, oder wir hätten ihn nicht gefunden , Nachrichten hätten wir gerne gesehen
Local attractions Siena ist eine wunderschöne Stadt Man hat dort viele Möglichkeiten zum Essen gehen Radda hat uns gut gefallen In Ama haben wir an einem Abend gegessen, das war sehr gut Haben dann auch Öl u Wein dort gekauft

Pros Lorsque l'on vit en appartement, on apprécie énormément cette villa pleine de charme et d'une architecture originale et très belle. Elle est très bien exposée et offre tout le confort nécessaire de tous les points de vue. Entièrement équipée et très agréable à habiter. A recommander.
Cons La seule chose qui a été quelque peu difficile à supporter mais qui n'a duré que deux jours heureusement, était le labourage des champs avoisinants avec un tracteur qui grinçait tellement que nous avons décidé de ne pas rester sur place. Il est important de prévenir la clientèle des travaux agricoles qui sont tout à fait normaux dans ce coin mais qui ont été une vraie nuisance et souffrance auditive, et ce dès 8 heures du matin.

Pros Die Grösse und Architektur des Hauses in ruhiger Lage. Grosse Terrasse mit schönem Blick durchs Tal. Bettwäsche und Handtücher in gutem Zustand. Freundliche Betreuung, auch telefonisch, durch PPM.
Cons Die Sauberkeit in einer der Duschen und im gesamten Treppenhaus ließ zu Wünschen übrig. Die Kaffeemaschine war sehr primitiv und die Küchenausstattung war spärlich. Am Pool gab es definitiv zu wenige Sonnenschirme (schmutzig) und Liegen (unbequem aus Metall), so dass manche Gäste nicht am Pool liegen konnten, obwohl sie es gerne getan hätten. Der Pool wurde nicht einmal gesäubert und weist unappetitliche Verschmutzungen am Beckenrand auf. Rasen und Rosen um La Cap. waren im schlechten Zustand. Das Haus ist sehr schlecht durchlüftet, weshalb im ganzen Haus dafür Trocknungsbehälter verteilt sind. WLAN hätte 20 Euro extra gekostet - und das bei stolzen 1.530 € die Woche (in den Appartements gratis). Absolut mangelhaftes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis!
Local attractions Siena, Radda, Colle di Val´delsa, San Gimignano, Montalcino, Pienza.

The owner was sorry to hear that you were unhappy. They would have been happy to arrange extra cleaning had it been reported to them. They were also unaware of any problems with the pool. The property management team were informed as soon as it was reported. The umbrellas at the pool were checked and found to be discoloured by the sun.

Pros The house was just what we wanted for a relaxing holiday. The pool and tennis court were great. We had taken 2 tennis rackets and were able to borrow 2 more. We spent time relaxing around the house and garden and exploring the surrounding area including Siena, Florence, Pisa, Luca and Chianti Classico wine producing area. Could not have asked for a better holiday. The instruction/information book and the visitors book in the kitchen were brilliant. These were full of great ideas, places to eat, places to visit, how to get there and where to park, where to shop.......
Cons Would have liked to have had tennis rackets supplied and the kitchen could have done with a few more plates.
Local attractions Siena was an excellent place to explore and less than 30 minutes drive away and the Chianti area is beautiful.
