We have found this place and selected it by luck. Arriving a bit too early, we have been greatly welcomed and had an immediate look at the marvelous sights all around the property. Everything is here to enjoy your relaxing stay, adding tennis and swimming to the great time you spend here. The staff is very friendly and does everything... More

Me and my husband went for a "kids free" weekend to Toscany and stayed 2 nights at Villa Rignana. Except the road to the villa, we enjoyed every moment of our stay! First evening we went out to have dinner at Scuderia (recommended by the staff) and it was fantastic! The second evening we decided to stay with other guests... More

Reading through the other reviews here I wonder if we stayed to at a different villa. Arguably the grounds were splendid and the staff were friendly. A cloud cast over our trip was the owner Alessandra. Her touch is everywhere and unfortunately we found her rude and extremely unhelpful. We found the rooms a little tired as well. When you... More

Rignana, Manager at Villa Rignana, responded to this review

We are confused and concerned as to the nature of this review. Given that the reviewer in question has only written one review we are of the opinion that this is a fake and malicious posting designed to harm our business and insult the manager. Should this be a genuine review we would ask the person to specify what dates... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Villa Rignana in October of 2011. It is a stunning property. The decor, the antiques, the gardens, the views, the breakfasts, the service . . . all that you would expect and want from Tuscany! There were no other guests there during our stay, so all was very peaceful. I must warn... More

The location is everything.The staff is kind and they always give you the best welcome. The room servicing was exemplary: every nbight we came home to a room in immaculate condition. But its abiding asset is its location: in the beating heart of the city. Highly recommended. Thank-you. we definitely return.

Villa Rignana is a cross between renting your own villa in Tuscany and staying at your rich relative's mansion. So many times during our stay I looked up, or out a window, and thought I was looking at a backdrop for a movie filmed in Tuscany. To sit in the lounge chairs on the back lawn, with the Tuscan sun...

Villa Rignana is a "house party" yilla rather than a luxury villa. The main bedrooms are adequately comfortable and probably very appealing if you love four poster beds. The bathrooms - actually there are only showers - function adequately and are quaint. The outdoor terrace is excellent with great views and to be shared with the owner's dogs (she says... More

Dear Guest, We would like to point out that certain areas are available when renting the villa. As b&b guest, you have the privilege of enjoying spaces and facilities which are normally not available in a b&b. The price of a room in fact, is substantially less than the cost of renting the entire villa. Kindest Regards Alessandra More

Finding Rignana was a fluke. I came across the positive review of an ex-colleague of mine on Trip Advisor and decided to trust him. For our honeymoon we had decided to experiment Tuscany by staying in its beautiful launching pad and use our residence as a launching pad to our Tuscan discovery trip. From the moment we reached Greve-on-Chianti (because... More

My wife and I stayed at Villa Rignana along with another couple for about a week. I usually don't like to over hype things so as not to raise expectations and disappoint people but Villa Rignana is one of the BIG reasons why our trip to Tuscany was so unforgettable. Let me preface my review with a few comments. For... More

This was my second visit to Villa Rignana, and by far one of our finest family holidays. As a family holiday destination it is easy, and above all, beautiful. Effectively we had the run of the Villa and full use of the entire grounds. The surrounds are beautiful with magnificent walks and beautiful hiking or running trails. Surrounded in all... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Surrounded by vineyards and nestling in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, Villa Rignana is a true gem, its ideal location and enchanting view is just what you would expect from a Bertolucci movie. The Villa is located between Florence and Siena and near the picturesque villages of Greve-in-Chianti, Panzano and San Gimignano. The villa was a monastery dating from the twelfth century and has been lovingly restored by the owner, Alessandra Bianchini, with artifacts from her many travels and family treasures. She has managed to maintain the original Tuscan atmosphere of the estate, restore and decorated it with unusual details. In every direction the views of olive groves and vineyards on the surrounding hills is quite unforgettable, this is truly an Utopian place. The villa can be rented as a whole accommodating up to 18 guests in 9 double rooms with ensuite bathrooms, drawing rooms with large fireplaces, a library with a wide range of books, gazebos, pergolas, outdoor and indoor dining room. For smaller groups, part of the villa can be rented by arrangement. The garden has a range of aromatic herbs which inebriate the air, rows of lavender accompany the path to the infinity pool, and the view is enchanting in every direction. Villa Rignana is ecologically run and most of the products used in the kitchen come straight from its grounds like extra virgin olive oil, vegetables, geese eggs, fruits berries and game meat. The pets consist of 2 dogs, arab horses, 1 Shetland pony, a range of geese, ducks and chickens, and Caterina the cat. They are all very friendly and love to be patted. The Villa has full time staff so you can enjoy your stay in a truly relaxing Italian way. In the grounds of the Rignana estate there is a superb marble constant flow swimming pool 18 by 8 meters, outdoor Jacuzzi, bocce pitch, ping pong, croquet, badminton court and trampoline. In the villa there also is a gym room with sauna, steam shower, massages and beauty treatments can be arranged. It is ideal for a family gathering, weddings or a party celebration weekend. During wild boar and deer hunts, shooting weekends are arranged including game dinners accompanied by the best Chiantis. ... more   less
