This is our third visit to Villa Rigacci and there must be a reason for that ! Frederico and his wife are charming hosts and Frederico is as amusing as he is helpful! Don't expect polish and attentiveness - this is an establishment which oozes laid back, rustic and convivial. The pace is slow. There's time to smell your coffee....

The grounds are lovely especially because the pool is large enough for proper swimming. Breakfast is ample and generous and staff are always on hand to whip up a cappuccino !

Big thanks to Frederico for helping us out with a punctured tyre on a previous visit. It's always a pleasure to chat with him whether it's about the European cup or Brexit ! Will we back again ? Is the pope a catholic !? Absolutely !

Stopped for final Tuscan lunch at the end of a glorious week , so only experienced the outside dining in midday heat ( 36 degrees) . Frankly I was disappointed . Choice was very limited , and my one glass of Chianti not good. My tomato and mozzarella salad and two wrinkled basil leaves could have been more enticing . The welcome and service was good , but I would have been more comfortable not listening to the Italian radio while enjoying my last glimpse of Italian countryside . Too much expectation ? Probably . Property looked interesting and I might consider Rigacci as a good stopping off point from which to explore more of Tuscany next time.

We found Villa Rigacci when browsing in the internet looking for an hotel well located in Tuscany with swimming pool and good environment so we could have a relaxing break after each trip in Tuscany.
It was a great choice. From the booking until the check out, the experience was great.
We were warmly welcomed by Frederico and Kirsten. During our stay they were always available and eager to help us and to make sure we were having the most of our stay.
The rooms are very clean and large enough to accomodate two adults and two kids (minor note to the shower that was not working properly).
The swimming pool is great and well equiped with towels and sun chairs (be prepared for mosquitos). The breakfast is served at the terrace with a great view over the surrounding mountains. Fruit, milk, american coffee, eggs, cereals, iogurts, cakes, croissants and a variety of bread compose the menu. Dinner is also served at the terrace. Service is friendly. The cheff prepares a daily menu that is available for 50€ per adult (half board) or on "a la cart" basis (fairly priced).
Wi-Fi is good across the entire hotel, particularly inside the rooms.
Regarding the location, Villa Rigacci is located 30km south of Firenze, so it is a great location for those visiting Tuscany.

Enjoyed our stay, particularly using the fabulous pool and the nice grounds for our toddlers to run around. No problems with the two-room suite but overall the place has a slightly jaded feel - creaking beds, peeling stucco - that not reflected in pricing. Had a fabulous bottle of Chianti and grilled porcini - but also a sloppy melanzane parmigiana and breakfast buffet carelessly put together - wrinkly apples and rock hard plumbs in the fruit selection, only low fat or sugary yoghurt available. Felt like many guests old friends, which good sign but may also explain why attention to detail slightly missing. Ideally would have given 3.5 stars - is better than average but not 'very good'. Staff all friendly and helpful

We were on a driving holiday and were driving from Portofino to Florence when we stayed one night at Villa Rigacci. Wish we could have stayed longer. There is much countryside to enjoy and outdoor meals to be had - none of which we could enjoy due to rain. The building itself is over 500 years old and well maintained. The host was fabulous as was the food! Would like to go back...
