About the Property
Country Villa, 7 Bedrooms, 7 Baths, (Sleeps 14) - pool and views
If you are looking for a quiet place to stay while you explore the treasures of Tuscany, then you have come to the right place. We are at the end of a long, winding road through the cypress trees, vines, oaks and olives, and when you run out of road, that’s where you’ll find us. Miles from any traffic or noise, and yet just a few minutes from some of the world’s greatest cultural treasures.
We pride ourselves on our eco-friendly values and conservation policy, and we produce our own 100% organic olive oil using traditional methods. We are also very proud of our traditional Tuscan home-cooked food, using tasty local produce and organic ingredients where possible.
Patrignone is a family-owned and run concern, and we very much hope you will enjoy your stay in our Tuscan oasis.
Villa Patrignone is a beautiful old 15th Century (possibly even older) farmhouse villa which has been lovingly and tastefully restored. Patrignone is set on top of its own hill reached by a long, winding private road through 150 acres of forest, olives and vines, with uninterrupted 360 degree views over the Tuscan landscape and valley below.
It is the perfect setting for peaceful walks, sunbathing, cycling and exploring. It has a lovely pool with one of the best vistas in Tuscany, and a peaceful Koi pond surrounded by cypress trees that keep it shaded and cool. It also has the large Terracotta Terrace where you sit out, enjoy a glass of Vernaccia or a meal, and watch the amazing sunset over the towers of San Gimignano and the snow-capped Apennines on the horizon.
Villa Patrignone will comfortably sleep 14 in 7 double suites (2 of the suites can have 2 single beds or 1 double bed). It has a huge kitchen (complete with a large fridge-freezer and dish-washer) and dining room with large dining table that seats 14, a large living room and library. It is filled with beautiful furniture, large comfortable beds, and the old terracotta tiles and chestnut beams are in evidence everywhere. Two of the rooms have beautiful little balconies looking west towards the valley below and the sunset beyond.
Prices shown above are for exclusive use of Villa Patrignone using only 4 of the 7 bedrooms. Additional rooms may be added, but additional guest prices are based on 2 sharing a room. If your guest is in a room of their own, please add 2 guests to obtain the correct price.
You can also rent additional apartments from us if you are planning a larger gathering. There are 5 other apartments/villas here giving you a total capacity of up to 33 people. Drop us a line and we’ll let you know what we have available.

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.

Year Purchased: 1985
About the owner: Simon Zimbler - owner, manager, olive farmer. 'I live and work on our family’s olive oil Agriturismo in the heart of Chianti with my wife Verity and our three children. We moved to Italy in 2007 to take over the business founded over 25 years ago by my Italian mother. I'm a keen cook, I love wine, and I have an extensive knowledge of the restaurants and wineries around here. For 7 months of the year my main job is to help and advise our guests and to make sure they make the most of their time in Tuscany. The rest of my time is devoted to my beloved olives, and to making sure my extra virgin olive oil is the envy of our neighbours. And there’s always time for a swim with the kids in the pool.'
Why the Owner Chose Barberino Val D'elsa FI, Italy:
My mother moved to the UK when she was 14, but always vowed to move back to her native country at some point. She started looking for a suitable 'project' in Tuscany in the early 80's, and finally settled on Patrignone on 1985. And who wouldn't! She picked Patrignone because she wanted somewhere completely isolated, not overlooked by neighbours, and with a private road not used by anyone else. And, of course, she fell in love with Patrignone's amazing sunset views.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Well, it really is very beautiful here. We're surrounded on all sides by cypress trees, vineyards, and our olive groves. We're on top of our own hill so we have the most amazing views as far as the Apennines. So it's very peaceful and quiet here, and yet we are perfectly situated, just 45 mins from Florence, 35 mins from Siena and surrounded by beautiful hill-top Tuscan towns, the nearest of which is Castellina in Chianti, just 10 minutes away, and well-stocked with shops, bars, excellent restaurants, a brilliant butcher and a good supermarket.
