The Space

Podere Patrignone is a beautiful old 15th Century estate ('podere') which has been lovingly and tastefully restored. 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.

We are 10 minutes away from San Donato, a similar distance from Castellina in Chianti, 40 minutes from the centre of Florence, 30 minutes from Siena, San Gimignano, Panzano, and Greve and around 90 minutes from Pisa Airport.

It is divided into five self-contained apartments plus 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.

Il Forno is a cosy cottage apartment sited where the old bakery used to be for the farmers and their workers - hence the name. It has been transformed into the loveliest 1-bedroom ground-floor apartment with views over our olive trees and the forests and vineyards beyond.

You have your own out-door space that you can use for your al-fresco breakfast in the sun, and is still complete with its original oiled chestnut beams and terracotta tiles.

There is an open plan kitchen, dining area and living space, and a small but functional bathroom with w/c, shower and basin. It also has its own antique terracotta wood-burning stove for those autumn evenings if it gets a bit chilly.

This cottage apartment is very picture-postcard Tuscan, quite small, but well-proportioned, and is a favourite with our family and friends who come to stay.

Other accommodations

We have 4 other apartments plus Villa Patrignone. Our other properties are advertised here also.

The others can be found on our website: follow the "Links to more information" below or search for "Patrignone" to find our dedicated website.


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.
