La Porcilaia at Pretaccione, Castelnuovo Berardenga - Siena and Chianti

2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms 4 guests In Resort with Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

Once the home of travelling priests 1000 years ago, Pretaccione has been sympathetically restored into individually owned holiday homes, preserving its charm with original features. The small collection of cottages and apartments each have their own furnished outdoor space where you can dine al fresco or sit back with a glass of Chianti from the Dievole vineyard below you and enjoy the south facing views of the Tuscan hills and valley beyond.

After a match on the resort's private tennis court, while relaxing in the sun by the pool, you might dream up some day trips to the cultural delights of Siena and Florence or jaunts to the local villages of Lecchi and San Sano within 4 km, where both have a family run restaurant and bar/wine shop. Pretaccione is a walker's paradise. Right on your doorstep is the Dievole Natural Path, 27 km of marked woodland walking and cycling trails that wind their way through this impressive winery estate. All trails lead to the Dievole wine tasting cellar and open terraced restaurant.

We had a wonderful stay at La Porcilaia, the setting was perfect and the house was very clean and comfortable. Being May with cooler evenings we made good use of the fire pit which had a plentiful supply of wood and enjoyed watching the shooting stars overhead. The central location of the house is ideal for visiting the area and the lovely hill top villages around.
Special mention must be made to Annie who helped us when we had a puncture by quickly contacting a local garage for us and arranging a replacement (the car hire company were less than helpful!), it saved our holiday!
Local attractions The new park and ride for Florence is brilliant (Villa Costanza car park). Located just off the A1 it was €5 to park for the day and €3.40 for a return tram ride into Florence. A bargain!
To Tuscany team comments for this review:
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your holiday at La Porcilaia in Pretaccione. It is excellent to hear Annie was of great help in sorting out your car troubles.
