“Charm and hospitality”

If you are looking for a quiet and authentic place to stay in the Tuscan countryside, consider Podere Patrignone. Simon and Verity will welcome you with homemade bread, local meats and cheeses, fresh fruit, and olive oil made right there on the property. The rooms are decorated in lovely styles, the pool is private and overlooks vineyards and olive groves, and the roses, rosemary hedges and lavender fragrance the air. Enjoy a vacation that leaves you relaxed and renewed. And don't forget to ask your hosts for tips on what to see. They will give you a whole book with info and ideas.

“Beautiful family friendly Tuscan farm”
Reviewed 9 January 2014 for a stay in August 2013

person found this review helpful

Our stay at Villa Patrignone worked so well for us. We have two boys who were then 9 and 7 and we were slightly concerned they might get bored. However the family who own the farm also have two boys, who were delightful, and two wonderful dogs, who the family generously share with any visitors who are interested. The service was excellent from the owners, Simon and Verity. They were very accessible during our stay to give advice, feed us fantastic food, make us feel extremely welcome. But you could also have total privacy there if you prefer. There are several child friendly spots around the farm which are fun to explore, not to mention the pool itself. Equally the site is so large, those without children could easily keep away from other people's! It was a very practical place to stay with wireless access, a help yourself honesty bar, book swapping, a well-equipped villa and very child friendly grounds. Off site were of course walks / runs, wine tasting, fabulous restaurants, markets, close to Florence and Sienna, an hour from the beach and a good value water park. We were there for the last two weeks of August and the weather was perfectly warm. What I liked best is that somehow it was almost like visiting friends because Simon and Verity are so easy going, we immediately felt at home and relaxed there.

“Heaven-on-a-stick”
Reviewed 26 November 2013 for a stay in August 2013

person found this review helpful

Il Caminetto was lovely, quite a small space but felt spacious due to the long corridor and large bedrooms.It also had a small balcony, which was lovely to sit out in the evenings, and a courtyard outside with a snug sofa which would often be visited by Miao the cat and the two dogs, Charlie and Lola. Il Caminetto was very very old and atmospheric with thick stone walls and wooden beams. Charming decor and helpful mosquito nets over the beds which added to the romantic atmosphere. The children adored their bedroom which was fresh and pretty and with plenty of room to play. Bathrooms were small and basic but had everything you needed and were spotlessly clean - as was the rest of the apartment. The apartment was also extremely well stocked with cooking utensils and crockery and felt very homely - books on the shelves and nice pictures on the walls, a lovely fireplace. It was not the ritz, but extremely well set up and comfortable for the relatively low price we paid for the apartment. We also were welcomed by a freshly baked loaf of bread, home made jam and fresh fruit and tomatoes from the garden - Heaven! The best thing is the farm itself - the views and walks around the grounds were absolutely stunning and we had the privilege of observing wild boar running around the bottom of the olive grows from our safe viewing spot in the covered barbecue area at the top of the hill (just outside our apartment). We were well looked after by the lovely dogs, Charlie and Lola, who made the holiday for our two children. The dogs are extremely well trained and friendly, without being 'jumpy' or too demanding! Verity and Simon, our very friendly hosts, could not have been nicer or more helpful. And their children were great. They made us feel part of the family very quickly and we could not have had a more enthusiastic welcome. We felt as if we had known them for ages after about five minutes. On our first night, we were invited by them to go for pizza at the local pizza place with some of the other guests and their children, which was a great start to the holiday and lots of fun. There were two or three families who came and stayed whilst we were there, which really added to the congenial atmosphere and certainly helped to keep our children occupied. If you were looking for a private retreat with no children, this would not be for you, but if you were looking for a sociable, family friendly environment then I could not recommend Podere Patrignone more. We had delicious food cooked for us one evening by Verity (worthy of a five star restaurant) and that wonderful evening enabled us to get to know the other guests. What's nice about Podere is there is enough space and little nooks and crannies so that you can be quite private, but there is always a chance to socialise with other people around the pool or having a drink on the terrace in the evening. There are not a huge number of rooms or apartments either so it is never crowded. We will definitely come back!

“Dream accomodations in Tuscany!”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We actually stayed in another of their three 2-bedroom apartments, La Terrazza which was recommended to us by friends in the United States. This lovely flat was an amazing space for our family of 5. All of our needs were met! It was extremely clean, quiet within the house (but you could find activity outside if you wanted to), very comfortable with enough space for our kids (ages 12, 15 & 18), with an appropriate sized kitchen and sitting area. On top of that, when the temperature outside reached the 90’s, it was extremely comfortable in our apartment as the stone building was naturally self-cooling. What a delight on a warm day! In addition to this fabulous, terraced -apartment, Verity and Simon, the proprietors, were very friendly and helpful. All of this AND beautiful outdoor surroundings! The grounds were a gardener’s dream. The view of the Tuscany hills extraordinary and the clean pool was a lot of fun. When it was time to leave, we couldn’t think of one suggestion to make our stay better. It was heavenly and we would go back again and again.

“A slice of heaven for our 30th wedding anniversary.”
Reviewed 28 January 2013 for a stay in September 2012

people found this review helpful

If you are looking for a quiet, authentic, rustic Tuscany getaway with great views and gracious hosts, Podere Patrignone will not disappoint you at all. We had never travelled to Tuscany before and were looking for a quaint villa centrally located that we could use as a base to travel to many of the hill towns. We travelled with our friends who were also celebrating their 30th and the four of us shared a two bedroom two bath "apartment" with its own private entry. Simon and Verity, the proprietors, were there when we needed advice and directions, but also respected our privacy. Their dogs, Lola and Charlie, would be waiting to greet us upon our return from day and evening trips. It was like concerned parents waiting for their kids to return. They were special hosts in their own way.
We were there for 6 days and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. Watching the sunsets poolside with a good bottle of Chianti from the honor bar and enjoying the home cooked authentic Italian dinner that Verity prepared are two of the great memories we came home with.
Simon and Verity, thank you. You made our 30th anniversary very special and one we will remember forever.
