The perfect base for you to explore Tuscany

 

Patrignone is deep in the Tuscan hills, far away from any noise or light pollution. But despite its peaceful setting, 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 restaurants, cafés and shops (and a good 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 town along. You really couldn't pick a more central location.

There's no doubt that you'll need a car while you’re staying with us, both to get here in the first place, and to get the most of Chianti's tiny but beautiful hill-top towns. And if you feel like venturing further afield, within a 1.5-hour drive you'll find white sandy beaches, typically beautiful Italian 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, walking, nature-watching, or ballooning, these activities and more can be easily organised. Just let us know what your interests are, and we'll give you some options.

The key attractions of San Gimignano, Radda, Volterra, Monetriggioni, and Colle Val D'Elsa are all within easy reach, along with dozens of top-quality vineyards and hundreds of fabulous restaurants. We are just 10 minutes from the beautiful hill-top town of Castellina in Chianti, with its full compliment of restaurants, cafes and shops (and a small supermarket).

There is 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 11/2 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.

If you want to find us on Google Earth (or other mapping tool), use these coordinates:

But don't use these co-ords in your SatNav when trying to get here as it will confuse your SatNav and take you to the wrong place. You'll find those coordinates here: Getting Here

We all had an absolutely wonderful time at Patrignone, and loved everything about our stay. We feel very lucky to have discovered such a special place, and will definitely be back.
