“Authentic, rustic villa experience, which has pros and cons”
Reviewed June 2, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Ricavoli grew on me so by the time we left I was absolutely in love. When we first arrived, the villa was being opened for the season, and it was musty and a bit dusty. Compared to the other newly-renovated villa we'd rented nearby a few summers ago, Ricavoli felt rough around the edges. But over the week I came to appreciate that Ricavoli is a much more authentic experience, much warmer and richer than the 'Italian McMansion' experience one can have. Firstly, Ricavoli can house and entertain no matter the weather. In the cold spring rain, we gathered by the fire and played ping pong and foosball. In the sun, we sat by the pool or on the patio and looked out at the truly breathtaking view. In those moments, it was so quiet and gorgeous, it was worth every penny. My son played soccer on the lawn and loved picking strawberries on the grounds. Furthermore, the kitchen was ideal for our type of vacation. We'd gather and help and drink cocktails in the spacious kitchen while my husband cooked elaborate meals. It was a great space for socializing and snacking and appreciating the food culture of Tuscany. Loved the caretakers, too. Pros: Cooking kitchen, View, many different spaces for different interests in your party, landscaping, location. Cons: older appliances, need to buy your own dishwasher and laundry soap, toilet paper, broken dishes or glasses here or there, lotsa mosquitos and spiders (the country in the summer, so it goes.)

Dear Madam,

Thank you very much for your time and for the nice and helpful comments on Ricavoli. We really appreciate them. We just would like to remark that unfortunately we had an unusually rainy spring, which has probably caused the musty feeling.
Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you in a future occasion.
Kind regards
Salogi staff
