The Experience

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 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. Luisa and Matthias hope and believe that their guests will prefer a relaxed chat over a glass of wine.

Il Rigo was everything we could have hoped for: we were so happy to have booked 6 nights at Il Rigo. Our room was airy, clean and comfortable, instantly relaxing. In a charming blend of old-meets-new, classic details such as traditional ceilings and antique furniture and well kitted out bathrooms. Extra touches included freshly cut flowers and tea making facilities in the lounge. Food and drinks are locally sourced. All the food is of high quality and flavoursome, with fine dining touches in the presentation. For dinner, the lasagne with zucchini flowers and almonds was particularly tasty.

Sandra & Michael, Ornes, France

Lovely place to stay. Stayed for 3 nights in the stunning Tuscan countryside. Il Rigo was a perfect base. Great advice for hikes from the farmhouse, we loved the walk to Bagno Vignoni. All 3 dinners were delicious and the suggestions for wine pairings perfect.

Alison, Newport

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.
