Pretaccione
Reviewed 24 January 2009

My husband and I spent a glorious 2 weeks in the La Porcilaia section of the Pretaccione farmhouse in August 2007. We'd return in a heartbeat.
The seperate unit (it was the former farm's pigsty!) is surrounded by lavendar, and other lovely plants, has a rose-covered covered patio - perfect for outdoor eating and resting - and lies a few steps from the pool which was much appreciated in the hot weather.
The apartment itself is beautifully and comfortably furnished, has a knock out bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen overlooking vineyards. Everything we needed for a comfortable stay seemed to have been provided, including lots of local travel information and personal recommendations from the owners for restaurants in the area (which all turned out to be true!).
Pretaccione is secluded without feeling distant, a short drive to the local village which has an excellent restaurant and about a 15 minute drive to Gaiole where all necessary provisions for that lazy meal on the patio can be purchased. In addition, it is about an hour from Siena and a couple of hours from Florence.
One could not ask for more. We recommend Pretaccione without reservation.

Reviewed 5 January 2009

We stayed at Annabel and Christopher Henfrey's house in the early days of Pretaccione and it was just what we wanted. It was modern living in an old building where everything worked and it was comfortable without being fussy.
As it was easy to use the kitchen and keep it clean, maintenance time was minimal and time for exploring the countryside and the towns, holiday time, was maximized.

Stayed: December 2006, travelled with family
