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

stayed at the villa on recommendation from friends who stayed last year for two weeks. My wife and I were totally taken aback by the villa, grounds and ambience. This is an enchanting piece of classic tuscan countryside. Everyone in the family from our two year old through to our grandmother throughly enjoyed their stay. I cannot thank the hosts... More

I travelled to Tuscany in September 2010 for 10 days with my wife and two daughters aged 9 and 11 and my elderly parents. We could not get into Fattoria di Rignana (highly recommended by many friends) up the road as they were full, so booked at Villa Rignana instead. We were the only people in the villa at the... More

One of my guess pointed out that this review is totally misleading to the true nature of the place and suggested I responded to this: The Villa was recommended to this guest by a lovely guest from South Africa who has been here twice. His reviews give quite the opposite view of Villa Rignana. These guest had asked to rent... More
