Villa Rioddi
Ranked #2 of 25 Hotels in Volterra
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 August 2012

After a thorough accommodation research, we chose this Villa as our headquarters for our Tuscany honeymoon. We stayed 11 nights and everything is as it says on their website. Actually we were so impressed by the high quality services at this family run Villa that every cent spent was worth it!
The hotel is well-located on a hill top with a beautiful view of the valley on one side and of the city of Volterra on the other, while being within a 20-minute walk from the town centre or 5min by car. There’s a spacious garden around the hotel, with an olive orchard and a wonderful pool area, suitable both for a day of sunbathing as well as swimming. Despite the fact that the hotel does not have a restaurant, the buffet breakfast was of very high quality, offering a variety of food, from fresh locally-produced yoghurt, fruit and cereal, to home-made sweets and cakes, to prosciutto and cheese. During the day or in the evening, it’s not a problem to ask for a sandwich or nibbles or to have a pizza delivered to the hotel for you. The room was very nice and spotless. It was cleaned every day to perfection and fresh towels were provided daily. Luca and his mum Mirella are extremely friendly and they don’t know the word ‘NO’! Nothing is impossible for them and some of the 4 star hotels could learn from them. They do everything for the guests and the place is just high standard and you really get the sweet home feeling. In Tuscany we visited, San Gimignano, Florence, Siena, Pisa, Lucca, did the famous Chianti round trip and of course went to Volterra on many occasions too. All the above-mentioned places are within 1 hour and 1.5 hour drive inc. the San Vincenzo beach. Luca gives you all the practical tips of whatever is worth visiting, which also saves you lots of time and trouble such as jumping the queues at the Uffizi and the Academy in Florence. We were very happy with our decision to discover Tuscany from our headquarters and not once did we have the feeling that we should have stayed a couple of nights in other cities. Florence and Siena are so overpriced that it is unbelievable. We can recommend this place to everybody who wants the country-side feel but not to be in the middle of nowhere. We will definitely return and join the returning customers’ club as they have many of them.

This hotel is located on a beautiful spot just outside Volterra. The staff is very friendly, caring and helpful to get the most out of your stay in this region. The rooms are clean and very well air-conditioned and the hotel offers a very good breakfast and very nice swimming pool.

I wento to Italy a couple weeks ago and I had the chance to stay in this wonderfull hotel, the service was amazing, the gentleman that asigned us the room gave us a room downstairs because of my mom's siatica we were so thankfull. The breakfast was wonderful with homemade bread and great attention from a cute old lady that seems to be the owner. The view from the hotel is wonderfull, the pool was a great size and the building is amazingly stunning. I recommend u all to stay in this beautiful hotel.
I hope i can go back some day.

There are so many things to say about this particular place, however.....the rate for each night is fare; the breakfast is freshly cooked everyday by the owners (amazing bread), totally safe, the view is amazing....even if your are not travelling for tourism, you can´t stop enjoying one of the best views fo Toscany; location allows you to travel perfectly to most amazing Tuscan atractions (Pisa, Firenze, Sienna, etc) in less that an hour, as well to amazing Volterra....the gasoline and diesels prices around the hotel are the lowest; free parking, concierge and totally working free Wi-Fi service. The rooms are perfectly well design, with all modern commodities....however, you still fill you are in an amazing Tuscan Classic Villa; is a mix of modern times and history in every step. Also, for those people travelling with persons that requieres special needs (wheel-chairs, siaticas, etc) the hotel allows you to have rooms in the floor level that have everything to take care of the health of your loved ones and their safety. In summary: the best hotel in Tuscany!!!

Room Tip: Contact them by e-mail, let them know all your needs....but make sure you get a room near the pool...

In an area of beautiful locations this was as lovely a setting as any. Our rooms, doubles, booked for single occupancy, were extremely spacious, cool and comfortable. Great swiming pool, very good breakfast, prepared freshly by the Signora, spacious car park and all very clean.

Room Tip: one ground floor room had good wheelchair access.

This hotel as mentioned by previous reviews has a wonderful setting with views of the Tuscan hills. The hotel staff spoke very passable English and put extra effort into information and recommendations for us. Would definitely stay here again if in the area. The only downside is that the driveway into the parking lot is a little tricky, but that pales in comparison to all the positive features. Free wi-fi and it actually worked!

A very well kept inn, in a gorgeous building. Our room was huge, comfortable with a stunning view of the valley below. Future guests can take into account that this hotel is a little far from town and not walkable and also that the hotel is a bit difficult to find. I think the breakfast was adequate but the room it was served in was gorgeous. The reception was professional, business like and provided essential information for a first -time visitor.
The Coop supermarket was recommended to park for free and walk into town. That walk in, was spectacular and seemed unreal it was so beautiful. The coop was a great place to buy food as well.
Volterra is awesome, a hidden treasure that must be visited, especially on a full moon night, like we did.
