Resort: 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.

Stay: July 2016
Excellent location and great accomodation - large, clean and fully furnished down to the last detail.
The kids loved the pool, although most of it is quite deep for small children.
Collection of the key could have been better - we wandered around the property looking for the key holder for a fair while.

Overall a very high standard and a lovely quiet spot.
Local attractions Restaurant in san sano excellent - a bit pricey but worth it. We found it easier to go to the large supermarket called Pam on the outskirts of siena near the train station as open all day and the drive was easier.

Four of us have just returned from having the most fantastic stay at La Porcilaia. We were two couples and the villa is very well set out for this. It is exactly as the pictures look. Very remote, peaceful and beautiful location. The kitchen is well equipped with absolutely everything you could possibly want and need. The bedrooms were comfortable and the place had a very warm and homely feel to it. The surrounding area is fabulous. So many interesting places to visit and you are surprisingly close to Siena. A car is an absolute must though. I couldn't recommend this place highly enough and the service we have received from To Tuscany.
Absolutely nothing! It really was fantastic.
Local attractions - Siena - all round wonderful - A butchers/restaurant in Panzano called Dario DOC. Wonderful experience for meat and red wine - La Vialla Fattoria just outside of Arezzo. Book in advance for a wonderful Tuscan lunch. As much food and booze as you can consume. Beautiful. Well worth a tour of the farm too. - Radda is lovely to visit and look round. The little shop sells ice as well which was very hard to find!

Very nice, spacious house, lovely garden with roses, trees, flowers and other plants.
We enjoyed every moment, could have stayed longer! There was a little fox visiting the garden looking for food maybe...
Everything was fine, just a little thing.. The barbeque could be better/newer, but we managed.

De rust en de accommodatie was uitstekend met alles aan boord. Prachtige tuin ook.
De weg ernaar toe was niet best en het lag wel ver van bewoonde wereld.
Local attractions Dorpje Radda was de moeite waard in de buurt en kun je ook lekker eten. Verder was Siena en Florence prachtig.

het fantastisch uitzicht - de volledige uitrusting om zelf te koken - de zeer uitgebreide documentatie (boeken) over Toscane - fantastische tuin
De vochtigheid in een van de slaapkamers
Paraplu aan zwembad in slechte staat
Kussens aan zwembad zouden brandwonden door de metalen stoelen kunnen vermijden
Kapotte lampen kunnen niet vervangen worden door mix van UK en Europese lampvoeten
TV was niet echt functioneel (afstandsbediening ontbreekt, lange kabel naar slaapkamer)
Slechts 3 ligstoelen in tuin
... en vooral uiterst slechte toegangsweg naar het domein

The property management took steps to replace the bulbs once they were informed. Apologies for the confusion with the TV. This has only very recently been installed and is awaiting further equipment to complete its set up. This is not yet included in the villa price.

Tolles, sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Haus. Man merkt allein an der Ausstattung der Küche, den Büchern, CDs und nicht zuletzt der Einrichtung, dass das Haus lange Zeit privat genutzt wurde. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
Local attractions Eis beim Eisweltmeister in San Giminiano sollte man lieber nicht essen, da danach kein anderes Eis mehr schmeckt...
