Le Stalle - A beautiful hill-top apartment with pool and sunset views
Podere Patrignone is a beautiful 15th Century estate ('podere') which has been lovingly and tastefully restored. A working organic olive farm with all of it's power, hot water and heat coming from renewable energy, it is a guilt free holiday in heaven. Patrignone is set on top of it's own hill reached by a long, winding private road that ends at Patrignone. It is set in 150 acres of forest, olives and vines, with uninterrupted 360 degree views over the Tuscan hills and valley below.
It's the perfect setting for peaceful walks, sunbathing, cycling and exploring. It has a lovely pool with one of the best vistas in Tuscany. Wake up to the mists rising through the trees and the beautiful views of surrounding vineyards, or catch an amazing sunset over the towers of San Gimignano and the snow-capped Apennines on the horizon.
It is divided into five self-contained apartments and the Villa, all beautifully furnished in a traditional style. The main Villa can be rented as a whole (7 en-suite doubles) or you may rent individual rooms for short stays on a B&B basis.
This apartment, Le Stalle, has a covered entrance that leads to a very light spacious kitchen/dining/sitting area with a large arched window. The ceilings are beamed with cypress and chestnut and the floors are paved with terracotta. It has two magnificent bedrooms with double beds (King size, one can be made up as a twin), walk-in wardrobes, and bathrooms en suite. One bedroom also has a daybed suitable for a child as well as a large sculpted arched window, giving the room a feeling of peacefulness and space. It is very cool in the summer and has its own outdoor sitting area. As with all our similar apartments, you have your own private patio dining area for al fresco dining, with stunning views over the Tuscan valleys below, or you are free to use the large Terracotta Terrace. The pool with its amazing panoramic views is a short walk away (but far enough away so that you will never be disturbed).
We have two other 2-bedroom apartments similar to this one. So if you find that this apartment is not available for the dates you wanted, be sure to check out Il Caminetto and La Terrazza.

Patrignone is right in the middle of Chianti, at the epicentre of Tuscany's cultural treasures, just 10 minutes from the beautiful hill-top town of Castellina in Chianti, with its full compliment of restaurants, cafés and shops (and a small supermarket). Siena is just 35 minutes away, and Florence 40 minutes in the other direction, San Gimignano is 30 mins away, with Volterra the next village along. You really couldn't pick a more central location. There's no doubt that you'll need a car to get the most of Chianti's nooks and crannies, but if you feel like venturing further afield, within a 1.5-hour drive you'll find white sandy beaches, typically beautiful seaside resorts, dozens of hot springs, and the majesty of the snow-covered Apennines, clearly visible from Patrignone's terracotta terrace. And if you're into cycling, tennis, golf, ballooning or fishing, these activities and more can easily be organised. Just let us know what your interests are, and we'll give you some options.
Dinner at Patrignone
A four-course evening meal can be prepared and served, either in the Frantoio Dining Room or out on the Terracotta Terrace, weather permitting, for 40€/head including wine. Please make your requirements known at least 7 days prior to arrival, though ad-hoc arrangements can be made later, and we will always try to accommodate your wishes, if we can.
The Terracotta Terrace, pool & Koi pond
There is a large terracotta terrace with breathtaking sunset views across the valley towards the sparkling towers of San Gimignano the snowy peaks of Abetone. Guests often have their sunset drinks here, or take their evening meals here under the stars. The natural stone-tiled pool area is a tactful 50 metres from the house, and offers amazing sunset vistas, as well as the opportunity to watch the cheeky swallows having an evening dip in the pool. There are plenty of deck-chairs and sun-loungers, as well as umbrellas, the natural shade produced by trees surrounding the pool, and a shower. NB There is no pool supervision, so NO children under the age of 14 may use the pool unsupervised. The Koi pond is a peaceful landscaped area made up of a stone built circular pond, with a seating area. It is very quiet and is shaded by large trees. It is NOT a safe area for young children to roam unsupervised.
