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.

Wonderful cottage - great amenities. It was perfect as a base for exploring the Chianti region or just staying put and relaxing.
Local attractions The Dievole and Castello Brolio wineries. For restaurants, we enjoyed the place in San Sano and Il Celliere A Castagnoli. Also Radda was a beautiful town; our favourite of the Chianti towns.

The house, the facilities and the feel of the place meant that it was a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday. We went to Siena, Florence and San Gimignano and they were very accessible from this location.
The drive leading from the main road was terrible. Our poor cheap hire car didn't have the suspension to cope with it, no matter how slowly we went. I know that it would be impossible to fix but it was quite annoying.
Local attractions The restaurant at Lecchi was excellent and we also hired a guy to cook us a meal on one of our last nights, which was well worth it.

Stay: May 2014
It's in a beautiful setting, and the terrace is a fantastic place to enjoy a leisurely meal. The apartment is a great size for two people, and is comfortable throughout - there's nothing we wanted that we didn't have. We did have a nightmare with lost baggage and being unable to collect our hire car, but the Keyholders were fantastic in helping us out - they saved what could have been a disastrous honeymoon!
Only complaint would be that when we were there, there were no tennis balls to go with the tennis racquets!
Local attractions Florence and Sienna are obviously incredible, but our other favourite spots were Castellina, Brolio and a wonderful restaurant in Lecci.
