Il Rigo is a delightful family run Tuscan Agriturismo. Although it’s setting is very rural it is not too remote,we found it convenient for accessing the local area, Pienza, Siena, Asciano etc and easy to find.
The wildlife and flora and fauna abound. We spent a week walking in the local area, the views are tremendous as is the variety of walks available.
We stayed in the main house, Casabianca, the rooms are large and airy and very comfortable with great views. The food was typically Tuscan, a great variety of 4 courses were offered every evening and they were superb.
All the staff were so helpful I didn’t get all their names so it would not be fair to single any of them out but they were all so helpful and there to please.
Thank you Il Rigo we had a great holiday .

We did not stay at Il Rigo, but had dinner with a group and the food was delicious. Il Rigo is a very small restaurant with limited seating, so reservations are a must. The menu is set daily and consists of four courses of Italian homestyle cooking. The wine we had was so good, we bought a bottle to take home. This may have been the best meal among many amazing meals we’ve had in Italy. The grounds around the restaurant are beautiful and the scenery is breathtaking.

We stayed two nights for a wedding in July 22. Overall a great experience and a beautiful venue! Very rustic, breathtaking views and very friendly and attentive staff.

Bbq was great and meat of excellent quality. Only let down on food was breakfast. It was a very limited selection, especially for young children.

Regarding accommodation, rooms were very clean and well appointed. Unfortunately the room did not have A/C. So during the summer this can be a little uncomfortable and the small table fan doesn't quite cut it. Also we were told there were no mosquitos and to leave the window shutters open on a night... Unfortunately one member of our party got bitten very bad over a dozen times.

Overall a great agriturismo in a beautiful setting and great location.

Would definitely recommend for a short stayover or wedding venue.

Perfect place in Tuscany to enjoy the sceneries of Val d'Orcia. This agriturismo is perfectly located within an hour from most of the picturesque towns like Pienza, Siena, Montepulciano, Montalcino and San Querico. You get a hearty breakfast and an option to have a nice 4 course dinner every day. Pienza was our favorite town in the region with great options for cafe, gelato and dinner. We took a cooking class with Lorenza and that was indeed the highlight of our stay there. Overall, a perfect place to stay and explore Val d'Orcia.

Il Rigo is a magical place. It is set in the most beautiful part of the Val d’Orcia, near several charming Tuscan towns including Pienza and Montepulciano. We were lucky to visit in spring and the views all around the property were breathtaking, completely serene and peaceful. The rooms are simple but charmingly done and the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. We had dinner two nights and found the food delicious. Il Rigo is an excellent base for walking and there was a large walking group staying while we were there. There are certainly fancier places to stay in Tuscany but the simple beauty of this family run farmhouse is in a class of its own.

Fantastic location in the Val d’Orcia. We stayed in the main house for three nights, using it as a base to tour the surrounding area. Views here were stunning, and Claudia was such a charming hostess. The meals were pretty good, and a great value for the money.

This was our first stay in an agritourismo recommended in the Karen Brown guide. What we learned is that what Karen Brown seems to favor isn't quite right for us. (She seems to favor larger, more commercial, upscale places, that are more "American" feeling or "safe" (less culturally challenging), with owners who speak good English.)

On check-in, owner Lorenza was quite aloof and handed us off quickly to her husband Vittorio, who is much more pleasant, but speaks hardly any English, which was fine -- we managed. Our room was not in the main house, but in an out-building about a mile away, which left us feeling somewhat detached from things and having to drive or walk 20 minutes to breakfast and dinner. We ate dinner there two of our four nights and the food was quite average, actually some of the least memorable meals we had the entire trip.

Our room was fine except that the building we were in was very noisy -- thin walls, you could hear folks easily and the common room next to us was very loud.

It is a beautiful location, however, and very well situated for touring from Siena to Northern Umbria.

Note: we just got back from 23 nights in Liguria, Tuscany and Umbria and will write reviews on every place we stayed to help those going, just as this site helped us plan our trip.

We stayed at il Rigo based on several recommendations from friends and were very excited to experience Tuscany; beautiful country side, great food, and solitude. The location is fantastic and the villa is beautiful. However, the excitement from all the accolades began to wear off:

When we got to out room we quickly noticed that the bed was quite old and very uncomfortable (antique furniture is great, antique beds are not); this resulted in three nights of terrible sleep. Hotels should continually strive to make their guests comfortable. Noise: the walls are very thin and you can here everything; movement in the hallway, adjacent rooms, in the gravel courtyard, cars pulling up. Very little peace and quiet.

We had three breakfasts and two dinners at il Rigo and the food was very average and over priced, it was not the culinary wonder that was expressed to me. If you stay here, recommend eating elsewhere, there are no shortage to options.

When I initially inquired about room availability, I had asked for information on cooking classes. I received a positive response about the room but nothing on the classes. The second day of our stay Vittorio told us that he coordinated the class for that afternoon (5:30pm, 95 degrees in a non- air conditioned kitchen; not optimal for learning); when I explained that we didn't agree to a class and was merely inquiring he became abrupt. Apparently we offended him and he maintained a negative attitude towards us through the rest of our stay.

The last night of our stay the owner and two of his friends were in the courtyard past mid-night making quite of bit noise. As I mentioned earlier, noise travels very well throughout the villa, so it felt as if three intoxicated Italians were having a party right outside our door. We were departing early in the morning with a long day of travel ahead of us, so we needed rest. I ultimately, had to go down and ask them to be quiet; which they did very politely.

Ultimately, I would not stay here again. Recommend to others to choose one of the many other options in the area; if traveling during the summer get one with a pool.

My husband and I visited here for a day but should have stayed longer! If you want to see pics of this place, go to Sawdays where I found it in the first place. Its really in the midst of tuscan hills, off a dirt road near the famous via Cassia. It was just an hour or so from Siena, and would be an excellent base to see the nearby towns of Pienza, San Quirico, Montalcino, Bagni St Philippo, etc. Though it had no pool, the room was great and the sunny terrace with the views of the hills was fantastic. The dining room was so authentically preserved, really loved the atmostphere. The shaded parking area was helpful given the Tuscan heat too. Friendly cats roamed happpy too. A nice romantic geataway for a couple but also suitable for families and adventurers alike! Not the place if you want 5* pampering, TV and jacuzzis but visit if you want a truly memorable experience.

Dear Jima, July and August are usually hot during the day but in Valdorcia the dry climate usually gives us cool temperature at night, often 10-12° less than during the day ( Day 35°C- night 25°C). Very rarely we have problems without AC. We hope to meet you soon at Il Rigo
