We stayed at Rigone in Chianti for a week in June. The location was wonderful, with fantastic views of the surrounding hillsides. Typical Tuscany....... It was a great location for visiting the surrounding towns such as Florence, Pisa and Sienna, etc, and some of the smaller gems suggested by our host, Nada. Nada spoke very good English, which helped greatly, and couldn't have been more helpful to us. Fresh croissants and fresh bread every morning if required...! It was not far from the supermarket in Montaione, and so peaceful surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. We did not have problems with mosquitoes, there were nets on the windows, and in the evening when the light goes, there were Italian fireflies flying around the olive groves. To see these was a wonderful experience.
