La Porcilaia at Pretaccione, Castelnuovo Berardenga - Siena

2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms 4 guests In Resort with Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

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.

 

Facing south West to the open countryside Porcilaia is a large self contained cottage that enjoys a sunny aspect from sun rise to sun set enjoyed from the large private terraces and garden, from here there are great views of the famous rolling hills decorated by the old stone farm houses and small holdings that once worked the fertile land. In this high ceiling and spacious house remain the original terracotta ceilings giving a cool open feeling throughout.

We had a magical week at La Porcilaia, the perfect location for a week in Tuscany. The villa had everything we needed and we enjoyed many Tuscan feasts on the covered patio overlooking the Tuscan countryside. The mosquitoes were a bit troublesome so a good repellent is s must!

OWNER COMMENT: Thank you for your kind review. I am just back from a wonderful two weeks myself and it is always lovely to know that others agree with me and enjoy everything that the area has to offer. My late husband and I found it as a romantic ruin and the rest is history. I am now of a great age and may have to sell one day.......watch this space! AH
