Casa Zaccardi at Pretaccione, Castelnuovo Berardenga - Siena and Chianti

4 bedrooms 4 bathrooms 8 guests In Resort with Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

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.

Prachtig gelegen,. heel groot, comfortabel en ruim ingericht landhuis, van alle gemakken voorzien.
Zijn heel goed geinformeerd en geadviseerd met name rijdens de corona-crisis.
Hebben het daarom aangedurfd de eerste week na de lock-downs om als eerste toerist toch naar casa Zaccardi af te reizen. Hebben er geen moment spijt van gehad en kijken er met veel plezier op terug!
Local attractions San Sigmigano, restaurant Vecchio Mura. Weinig sfeer nog door ontbrekende toeristen. We hopen dat de toeristen zo snel mogelijk naar Toscane terugkomen.
