Agriturismo Il Rigo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 3, 2009

Il rigo is in a fantastic setting about an hour south of Siena, on top of a small hill. We stayed ina converted pigsty which was nicer than it sounds. The owner was very helpful and friendly. The food was not great if you don't like meat.

il Rigo & San Quirico
June 2007
Elaine
Venice, FL

My dream of staying a month Tuscany came true when I stayed in San Quirico and iL Rigo. Lorenza and Vittorio are the kindest, hardest working couple I know. I loved staying at Cassabianca. I had a wonderful view from my bedroom window of the surrounding countryside. All the views from Cassabianca are breath taking. It is just the perfect place to stay and take day trips to the surrounding hill towns.The staff at il Rigo is very friendly. Lorenza takes great care in planning traditional Tuscan menus, all of them delicious. I took cooking classes with Lorenaza and I highly recommend taking a class with her if you want to learn more about preparing traditional Tuscan cuisine. She is an excellent instructor.

I also stayed a few days in the beautiful suite at Lorenza & Vittorio's main residence in San Quirico. I also enjoy their Caffè Enoteca Il Pozzo. I am looking forward to going back to San Quirico and try their new Ristorante degli Archi.

I was lucky enough to visit in June when San Quirico d'Orcia celebrates the Festival of Barbarossa. The festival is very colorful and should not be missed if you are in the area. San Quirico's quartiere dress in exquisitely constructed mediaeval costumes. It was just such a thrill being there and watching the events. I loved exploring this small hill town.

Overall, I highly recommend staying at Il Rigo and/or the suite in San Quirico. It is a trip I will never forget. The best summer vacation I ever had thanks to Lorenza and Vittorio. The perfect hosts.

Il Rigo Agriturismo is located on a breathtaking spot. My girlfriend and I didn't know what to expect first, but the experience was unforgettable. Unfortunately, we only had 1 night to stay there. The staff was friendly, the food great and the room lovely. Alicce (the dog) also contributed for a nice stay. Don't forget to ask to stay at the main house.

This was our first stay in an agritourismo recommended in the Karen Brown guide. What we learned is that what Karen Brown seems to favor isn't quite right for us. (She seems to favor larger, more commercial, upscale places, that are more "American" feeling or "safe" (less culturally challenging), with owners who speak good English.)

On check-in, owner Lorenza was quite aloof and handed us off quickly to her husband Vittorio, who is much more pleasant, but speaks hardly any English, which was fine -- we managed. Our room was not in the main house, but in an out-building about a mile away, which left us feeling somewhat detached from things and having to drive or walk 20 minutes to breakfast and dinner. We ate dinner there two of our four nights and the food was quite average, actually some of the least memorable meals we had the entire trip.

Our room was fine except that the building we were in was very noisy -- thin walls, you could hear folks easily and the common room next to us was very loud.

It is a beautiful location, however, and very well situated for touring from Siena to Northern Umbria.

Note: we just got back from 23 nights in Liguria, Tuscany and Umbria and will write reviews on every place we stayed to help those going, just as this site helped us plan our trip.

My husband and I visited here for a day but should have stayed longer! If you want to see pics of this place, go to Sawdays where I found it in the first place. Its really in the midst of tuscan hills, off a dirt road near the famous via Cassia. It was just an hour or so from Siena, and would be an excellent base to see the nearby towns of Pienza, San Quirico, Montalcino, Bagni St Philippo, etc. Though it had no pool, the room was great and the sunny terrace with the views of the hills was fantastic. The dining room was so authentically preserved, really loved the atmostphere. The shaded parking area was helpful given the Tuscan heat too. Friendly cats roamed happpy too. A nice romantic geataway for a couple but also suitable for families and adventurers alike! Not the place if you want 5* pampering, TV and jacuzzis but visit if you want a truly memorable experience.
