“Outstanding! Could not have asked for more!”
Reviewed November 1, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This is a fabulous apartment with private garden. The view from the garden over the olive grove is spectacular. Your hosts, Lucia and Rino, couldn't be more gracious and helpful.
The apartment is light, spacious and well equipped. The location is perfect for trips to the surrounding fascinating Etruscan hill towns and gorgeius countryside. All in all, a superb experience for my first ever visit to lovely Italy.

“Perfect Italian experience.”
Reviewed October 7, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is a delightful large family apartment, the lowere level of a private home overlooking olive groves and Tuscan hills. The family are friendly and helpful. The village is not so old (mostly) but interesting and not touristy. The local butcher is as funny as Buster Keaton.

“Fantastic holiday home in a stunning surroundings”
Reviewed May 17, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

I have visited Italy many times, and decided to spend Christmas with my adult daughters in Tuscany. Villa Righino is a fantastic holiday home. It is spotlessly clean, spacious, elegant, well furnished, with two large bedrooms, a bathroom, separate kitchen, dining area and sitting room. Everything is provided - right down to a microwave, a bottle opener (very important!), wine glasses. The free WiFi works perfectly. The property also has a fabulous outside terrace and private garden area with stunning views overlooking the Tuscan countryside. There is so much to do and see, from the nearby hamlet of Murlo (well worth a visit), to Montepulciano, the fabulous Siena and many other amazing places. A car is a must in this area. The hosts, Lucia and Rino are exquisite people, and nothing is too much for them. I certainly hope to return and would highly recommend Villa Righino. Excellent value for money.

This was our second stay in Tuscany but the first one in such a great place! Thanks to Lucia and her family! Accommodation in Villa Righino was an amazing experience. We could even use their garden and eat delicious cucumbers, tomatoes and eggplants. Once time Lucia brought us homemade wine to taste. It was delicious!
Villa Righino is very comfortable place to stay. Bed linen and towels smelled Tuscan`s sun. Lucia took care of every detail – there was even a vase of flowers waiting for us.

House is on ground floor of owners home. Nice, spacious and clean house. The family is very friendly, Lucia is a great host. View is fantastic and it's nice that there is a small pool for the children. Location is very central in Tuscany so that a lot of places can be visited.

“Rolling Tuscan Hillside...Great Views...Wonderful Location!”
Reviewed November 20, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

people found this review helpful

I have stayed twice at the house and had amazing experiences! The first time, I traveled with a friend for 2 weeks in 2007 and then again with my sister for 1 week in December 2013. Vescovado is a small, beautiful village in Tuscany. There a few local coffee shops and fantastic restaurants. It is a short 20 minute drive via car to Siena. It is also easily accessible to some of the best vineyards in Tuscany! The view from the house's backyard is the quintessential rolling Tuscan hillside like you would see on a postcard. There is no better place in the world to sip your morning coffee! The family who runs the property is extremely welcoming and accessible for any logistical questions a traveler may have. This house is an excellent spot to relax with friends or family in a quiet town or can be used as a great base for day trips to other parts of Tuscany. I highly recommend it!
