This was our second stay at Borgo Pretaccione, this time in La Porcilaia Yes, it’s off the beaten track, but that’s the whole idea. We love the remoteness which in turn allows you to switch off and relax.

The villa is very spacious and perfect for couples as the bedrooms are at opposite ends, each with a bathroom.

Extremely well equipped, with the washing machine an added bonus. Excellent WiFi and mobile phone reception will depend on your network.

The pool was open for us but too chilly to swim in, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying the sunshine, as we spent most of the time in our private garden.

Highly recommended.
Local attractions Radda is our favourite town in Tuscany with everything you need. The little store at San Sano attached to the restaurant is close by for little top ups such as bread, wine or deli items.
