Are you in need of privacy and relax, yet do not want to miss the opportunity of living for a short period in the heart and art of Tuscany? Rigone in Chianti won't disappoint you. Not only was the apartment (better say..house?) where we stayed (2 adults + 3 children) for one week spacious, comfortable, nicely decorated and refurbished, but also the location - within short distance from the most famous attractions in Tuscany such as Certaldo, Siena, S. Giminiano and Volterra - is strategic and, even so, far from crowded holiday resorts and structures. Nice and clean swimming pool, large olive tree fields or vineyards where to take long walks in the late afternoon, good wine and extra virgin olive oil produced on the spot .... but, what's more, the kindness of the owners who do love children and make every effort to cope with your needs. No problems to find supermarkets, shops and other services (I had to take the car to a mechanic unfortunately) in Montaione. I therefore kindly recommend it if you are planning a holiday in Tuscany!

Since then, work has continued with the same enthusiasm through 5 generations. We produce Chianti wine, extra virgin olive oil, grappa and honey. The family decided to transform the old rural complex, dating back to the 18th century, into what is now Rigone: a small, well kept structure able to satisfy even most demanding guests. The Agriturismo consist in three original buildings, which have been left intact in their external appearance, but adapted for their new functions.
