“Beautiful and relaxing.”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 for a stay in August 2013
people found this review helpful

We visited Il Rivo in August 2013. The photos do not give you the full picture of this most beautiful house. The views and atmosphere take you to Tuscan relaxation as soon as you arrive. The house is wonderfully spacious and comfortable, with excellent kitchen equipment. The showers are luxurious and stylish.
We were greeted by the local managers who couldn't have been more helpful even texting me half way through the week to let me know about a local festival. Michelle, the owner, prior to our visit, was lovely, answering all my questions.
We enjoyed sitting outside with a glass of wine under the pergola, enjoying the amazing views of Tuscan villages dotted across the hills, Vellano above us, watching deer, wild boar and young badgers (not guaranteed!) visiting the terraces below.
Vellano has to be seen to be believed, the people are friendly and the local restaurant serves wonderful food. The road to the house is a little narrow, so if you're hiring a car book a smaller vehicle - always better in Italy.
If you want to relax and view Tuscany at its best, yet still be within easy reach of well known sights like Lucca, I can highly recommend Il Rivo.
Thank you, this has been an amazing holiday.
