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 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 Prachtige locatie, rust en stilte. Verzorgd zwembad en alle voorzieningen zijn aanwezig. Schitterende check in en vriendelijke, duidelijke uitleg.
Heerlijk in de natuur vertoeven tussen de vossen, krekels, egels en zwaluwen. Prachtig terras.
Heerlijke vakantie gehad!
Cons Internet oplage was nogal prijzig. Hygiëne in de badkamer was niet volledig in orde. Keuken echter zeer proper. Vochtprobleem in de kleine slaapkamer. Kookgerei (kookpotten) zijn in vervallen staat. Beide parasols op het terras waren stuk. Dit zou voor de prijs van het verblijf wel mogen verbeteren.

Pros Es war soweit alles vorhanden um sich vor Ort wohl zu fühlen. Sehr schöne und gepflegte Anlage und die Lage ist auch nett.
Cons Kurz und knapp: Ein paar mehr TV Sender in der Sprache der Gäste, englisch und Deutsch sowie ein DVD Player (für nasse und kühle Tage). W-Lan hakte sehr oft und man musste sich mehrmals einwählen, könnte aber auch an den vielen Nutzern gelegen haben ;o) Die Gäste sollten auch den Kamin nutzen können/dürfen, zur Gemütlichkeit und bei kühlem Wetter. Eine Übersicht zu den Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in der näheren Umgebung ggf. auch in Siena, Wanderrouten vom Haus aus... Grazie mille!

Pros Prachtig huisje, warm ingericht, met alle comfort en een paar extra's, zoals CD's, DVD's en boeken die aanwezig zijn in 't huisje. Prachtig gelegen ommuurd terras met mooie planten/tafel&stoelen/zetels en een geweldig uitzicht. Lekker koel in de zomer binnen.
Cons Het enige minpuntje is de toegangsweg die in tamelijk slechte staat is.
Local attractions In Radda zijn een aantal kleine restaurantjes, met mooi terras. In de buurt zijn enkele pittoreske dorpjes zoals San Sano. We hebben vanuit onze locatie Siena, Firenze en Arezzo bezocht. In Gaiole kan men de voornaamste aankopen doen in een kleine Coop.

Pros Het huis heeft een fijne en persoonlijke sfeer. De leefruimte heeft prettige afmetingen. Alles is aanwezig. Goede uitrusting in de keuken en zeer goede bedden.
Cons De toplaag van de tennisbaan was beschadigd en heeft onderhoud nodig. Het zou aangenaam zijn wanneer er voor de ligbedden kussens beschikbaar waren.
