The fame of Lorenza's cooking has spread so far that she's been invited to demonstrate her skills in the US (she runs courses here, too.) So meals in the big, beamed dining room at pretty check-clothed tables are a treat. Irresistible home-grown organic produce, 60 local wines to choose from and a gorgeous Tuscan setting. There are two houses on the family farm, named after the stream running through it. Casabianca, reached via a cypress-flanked drive, is ancient and stone built. A vine-covered pergola shades the entrance; beyond the reception area is a courtyard full of climbing roses. The second house, Poggio Bacoca, is about 600 metres away. Once home to the farmworkers, it's red-brick built and has two sitting rooms and panoramic views. You walk (600m) to Casabianca for those wonderful meals. Bedrooms are homely, pretty and inviting; all have embroidered sheets, appealing colour schemes and matching bathrooms. No televisions: it's not that sort of place. Lorenza and Vittorio hope and believe that their guests will prefer a relaxed chat over a glass of wine.

Guest feedback
"Il Rigo sits on top of a hill, with cypress trees and great Tuscan scenery making a wonderful setting for a perfect B&B. It is a largely arable farm and the management team (Luisa and Matteu) are generous with their time and helpful advice. Light and airy bedroom with comfortable bed and fresh cotton bedlinen. The fabulous views can be enjoyed from all around the house and it has a very special and relaxed atmosphere. Wonderful dinners in the evening and feasts for breakfast. The produce is all of a high quality and beautifully prepared and presented. We hope to return."
