Perks for the Parents

This rustic and romantic Tuscan apartment in a family estate has a shared pool and is well placed for exploring hilltop towns, relaxing in hammocks and enjoying local food. Close to Castellina in Chianti, it is run by owners who know what it’s like to travel with kids, and who help as much as they can. Perks include a welcome pack of fresh fruit, home-baked bread, homemade jam, extra virgin organic olive oil, local cheeses and meats, condiments, fresh ground arabica coffee, tea, sugar and cleaning basics.....all included! A banquet meal is offered at least once a week for all guests: children are welcome or you can tuck them in to bed and come alone. Cookery classes and tour guides/drivers for local attractions and wineries are also on offer. The estate has an honesty bar with a selection of local wines, soft drinks, spirits and mixers as well as a host of guide books, maps, games and childrens/adults books.

Why Kids Love it

Kids love this place as they have so much space and freedom. The owners’ dogs, Charlie and Lola, are great companions to young and old alike and have cured many a dog phobia. There are 10 hens for fresh organic eggs plus a large koi pond with some enormous fish. WiFi is restricted to the honesty bar/ common room allowing kids to play outdoors and create their own adventures. During the summer months, there are usually other families to hang out with (including the owners’) allowing families to make friends. The summer sees a surge in events around the region, including dressing up in armour, watching horse and donkey races, falconry, jousting, medieval style football and much more. The owners can provide cribs, high chairs, tonnes of toys and books, potty and baby bath and of course, there is a swimming pool.

Things to Know

Minimum stay is 4 nights in low season and 5 nights in high. Note that while the shared swimming pool is currently ungated, it is a 50 m walk from the main property. The apartment is on a working olive farm and therefore has some dangerous machinery around. The hosts provide a full guided tour showing you all the safe and off limit areas but young children should be supervised at all times. They provide a laundry service but note that there are no machines in the apartments. The apartment is one of a small collection in the olive grove. The closest restaurant is 5 minutes away and within a half hour radius, there are hundreds of excellent restaurants to choose from, all child friendly.

About the Location

Patrignone is a tranquil haven where the parents can relax and enjoy the atmosphere whilst kids can explore and adventure. It is 40 minutes from both Siena and Florence. The closest town, Castellina in Chianti, is a 10-minute drive away. The property is on the doorstep of many beautiful places to visit including San Gimignano and Panzano. The closest airport is Florence (45 minutes) and it is only 1.2-1.5 hours from Pisa and Bologna. Rome and Milan are around a 3-3.5 hour drive. There is a stunning sculpture garden not too far away and you can be at the beach within an hour and a half.

Accommodation Details

This apartment, La Terrazza, is one of 3 2-bedroom apartments at Podere Patrignone. This apartment is a 1-story ground floor self-contained apartment with 1 double and 1 single bed in 1 large ensuite room and 3 single beds in the other. There is a separate large kitchen and living area plus bathroom with shower. There is a huge garden and a communal terrace, swimming pool and a kids area in the woods with table tennis, trampoline, tree house, basketball hoop and swing.

Style Notes

Tuscan charm. The property is a 15th century traditional Tuscan farmhouse with many original features, character and charm in abundance. This apartment is in, the owners believe, the oldest part of the building and is cool in the summer months. It is spacious and elegantly decorated with some beautiful pieces of antique Florentine furniture and a stunning family-made Tiffany lamp. We love the bucolic feel, the traditional terracotta tiled floor and the fantastic pool.

Verity and Simon loved to Italy with their young kids back in 2007. "Our eldest is not at university, but our other boys are still at elementary and junior schools. We've been hosting families with kids of all ages for over 10 years now, and we know all about what it's like to travel with kids. You'll find us extremely helpful and sympathetic, we promise!"

Tuscany, Italy

Olive groves, vineyards and rolling hills

This region of central Italy is as picture-perfect as you’ve heard: all rolling countryside, cypress trees, hazy views and historic stone villages. For those too young to enjoy wine, olive oil and relaxing, there are water parks, child-friendly heritage sites and theme parks, meadows and woods to play in, and donkeys to befriend. Hire a car and explore the surrounding area, buy fresh pasta to cook at home later, or spend afternoons in vineyards deciding which variety of Chianti you like the best.
