“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

We stayed one week and we had really great time - gorgious and unique place, a real dream if you want some time off. In the middle of Tuscany hills, great food, extremely high quality services, nice people. I would recommend this place to any friend looking for "unplugging".

When you think of Tuscany, this is what comes to mind. Rigone in Chianti's villas are in the middle of a vineyard, with a lovely 360 degree view of the Montaione hills all around. We stayed here with our 3-year-old, using it as a "home base" from which to take day trips to Florence, Pisa, and Siena. We ended up relaxing by the pool for two days. There's a big horizon pool with a little playground next to it that our son could play in, then get in and out of the pool. When we woke up, the first thing we saw was the church steeple in the old town up on a hill. The villa had two baths with showers, full kitchen, flat screen tv. We'd like to go back when our son is a little older and bicycle around the whole area. The owners speak perfect English, and helped us with directions; we can't thank them enough!

Room Tip: We stayed upstairs in the villa named Vulci, which is closest to the parking area.

It was a great pleasure to have you here . Thank you very much for those kind words . My son Nanni is only a few months older than your Connor, so it was not difficult for me to imagine the needs you might have , and it was a pleasure to have satisfied them ! We are so happy that you were satisfied and that you have appreciated our agriturismo and our hospitality . It is nice to have people full of enthusiasm and joy , able to appreciate even the smallest detail of our simple but sincere hospitality. Hope to see you again !

We have visited Rigone for the second time now. Its beautifully situated in the Tuscan countryside. The children love the pool and the space around the appartments. Montaione is a very small, typical Italian town with a perfect bar for ice and a coffee in the afternoon or evening. It has some small lovely restaurants as well. We really like the restaurant at the gasstation. It was recommended by Nadia and we really enjoyed it. The property is centrally located to visit Pisa, Florence, Siena, Volterra etc. Even a trip to the sea can be made in one day return. Nadia is around to help you with questions and suggestions to make a trip or advice a restaurant. It all very pleasant and charming.

It is the first time we are staying in Rigone in Chianti.
Everything was perfect. Friendly owners couldn`t be more helpful. Very professional and nice attitude.
Great location. We highly recommend this place. It is extremely comfortable, large, clean and charming.
We had such a good experience that we hope to return again in near future.

We just got back from one week in Rigone in Chianti, and we wish it could have been two. We stayed in the Populonia villa, which was spacious and well equipped as well as spotlessly clean. Montaione is perfectly situated for day trips into Lucca, Pisa, Volterra and many other beautiful destinations. The view over the vineyards and olive groves into the countryside is like something out of a fairytale!

We spent a week at Rigone in Chianti and simply loved it!

Before our arrival, Nada was extremely helpful and responsive in recommending local attractions, booking our train tickets and more. We were delighted to finally meet her after all the emails back and forth.

As we were traveling a long ways to get to the villa, Nada made sure that there was food in our suite upon our arrival including a bottle of red and white wine, and olive oil made on the farm. Fresh croissants were delivered every morning. When it rained (sadly), Nada brought an umbrella to our door, and discussed options for things to do in wetter weather.

The setting is so lovely and unfortunately we couldn't use the beautiful pool (it was early October), but we made the best of it enjoying our coffee poolside in the mornings. It was very relaxing just to be there!

We took Nada up on her offer for a cooking class, and it was such a treat to have dinner in her and Luigi's home to see how the Tuscans live in Montaione. Dinner was delicious!

The Populonia suite we called home for the week was lovely and very accommodating for two couples. We were sorry to leave. ;)

The main issue we had was the Internet signal was very weak and unpredictable. So if you plan to conduct "business as usual" during your stay, this will be challenging. This is likely not something that can be easily addressed given the location, so just keep it in mind.

All in all - a perfect retreat for your Tuscan getaway!

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!
