Great place and great experience. I loved staying in this location and Carla and her son were super friendly. They provided a great breakfast and lots of suggestions of what to see in Tuscany! Ot was the highlight of Italy for me and so close to many places and towns! I can't wait to go back to this beautiful countryside B&B. The nearby town of Monticchiello was also amazing. One suggestion is that if you are an american who decides not to activate your phone in Europe be sure to get very clear directions to Carla's place. At one point we weren't sure we would find it - but I take at least 50% of the responsibility for not getting better direction in advance. The room was large for three of us, very quiet, clean with access to a main kitchen lounge area and a huge backyard and nicely decorated. I can't wait to go back to this magical place! Thanks!
Carla est une hôte extraordinaire! Chaque matin, elle prépare un excellent petit déjeuner maison: biscuits à la confiture, gâteau aux pommes, café, confiture aux prunes de son jardin, yogourt! Miam! La chambre était spacieuse et nous y avons bien dormi! Le soir, il était plaisant de regarder le ciel étoilé dans le jardin! Carla nous a donné plusieurs endroits intéressants à visiter dont le spa thermal naturel bagno san filippo qui était assez près en voiture! Nous y sommes allés à chaque jour! Plusieurs villages fortifiés sont à voir absolument! En voiture, cela se fait très bien! Décidément, la région de val d'orcia, le highlight de notre voyage! Nous y retournerons sans hésitation!

Nous avons passé 2 nuits chez Carla, son fils Giuseppe et son amie, qui nous ont accueillis chaleureusement ! La chambre, le petit-déjeuner (avec pâtisserie "maison"), les conseils pour découvrir la région, l'emplacement ... tout était parfait. Les petits villages de Toscanes sont très chouettes, les bains chauds de San Filippo ont été particulièrement appréciés par notre fils de 13 ans.
Nous remercions bien chaleureusement nos hôtes et recommandons fortement ce B&B reposant et bien placé pour visiter la Toscane.
Nous avons vécu une expérience magique, tant liée à la beauté des lieux qu'à la générosité de Carla, Giuseppe son fils et Nicole son amie. Notre hébergement était d'exception, dans la chambre "Fridda", confortable, cosy et à la décoration soignée. Le lieu était magnifique, au cœur de la campagne Toscane, au pied de Monticchiello, et avec vue imprenable sur l'ensemble. Le calme et le repos de l'ensemble ont offert un ressourcement valant toutes les destinations les plus exotiques du monde. Et cerise sur le gâteau, nos hôtes nous ont réservé un accueil d'une sincérité et amabilité bien supérieures à celles inhérentes à la pratique commerciale de cette activité. Ils ont l'amour de leur région, des produits de leur terroir, ils savent le partager. Nous avons vécu une soirée extraordinaire en partageant un vin local et quelques grignoteries généreusement offerts par nos hôtes, discourant à tout rompre de tout et de rien comme des amis de longue date. Un concept global qui fait chaud au cœur, une histoire qui se raconte au fil du temps, et qui a un goût de "reviens-y" ! :-)
We ***loved*** our stay at Podere Rigopesci!!! Carla, her son Giuseppe, and his sweet girlfriend Nicole were all welcoming and helpful. Between my very limited Italian and their much-better English, my husband and I were able to learn more about nearby hill towns we were planning to visit.
Each morning, we were treated to an authentic Tuscan breakfast, often including fresh fruit from the family garden and homemade pastries. Everything was delicious.
The room we stayed in (with the neat ladder against the wall) was spacious and comfortable with a private bath, a sitting area, and two locking doors to the outside. It adjoins the common breakfast area. The shower had great pressure and was very quick to heat up. The king bed (two twins together with king bedding) was quite comfy, and along with the clean country air, our tired feet (from exploring) and the ultra-quiet environment, we slept hard!!
The grounds were lovely, including a beautiful backyard garden where we sat and drank wine under the stars.
We highly recommend this B&B! Our only "wish" is that air conditioning would be nice - or fans- because it was quite hot and humid during our June stay... But... Not at all a deal-breaker. I'd return to Carla's home-away-from-home in a heartbeat.
This is the coolest place we have ever stayed - EVER! Carla's apartment is very comfortable and she and her family made very entertaining, interesting, caring and wonderful hosts. They have taken extra care to provide a clean, beautiful, modern space for their guests that also maintains a very Tuscan charm. As an added bonus, Carla was very patient with my limited, choppy attempts to speak Italian with her (she speaks some English so we figured it out)! But her son spoke perfect English and was also a very warm and fun person to get to know. I wish we could have spent a lot more time there, and am sincerely hoping we can return some day. We miss her family and the wonderful accommodations already!
The shared kitchen/living room area was so perfect and it was very nice to have a convenient space where we could cook a bit for our daughter, make afternoon coffee or tea, and enjoy meeting the other family staying there. This is also where Carla prepares an absolutely delicious breakfast each morning. She even cuts fresh flowers from the property to keep the room beautiful and vibrant.
But then when we wanted privacy, our room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was also so nice - a nice big tile shower with plenty of warm water and water pressure, which we have learned is definitely not a given, especially traveling in the Italian countryside. The main bed was extra roomy (equivalent to a king size, also rare in Italy!) and very comfortable. And we are picky about beds! She also put an extra child's bed in our room for our daughter and she loved it. We had plenty of blankets, towels, etc.
The property (Carla's family lives in the main house and the apartments are a building just down the hill from the main house with plenty of convenient parking) is absolutely beautiful, with a stunning view of Montichiello up on a hilltop and the surrounding Tuscan countryside. There are many flowers and plants to enjoy in Carla's yard, and they have a really nice patio/pergola area that is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you. Montichiello is a really quaint town with absolutely awesome food and views of the Val d'Orcia, and is perfectly located between Montalcino, Montepulciano and Pienza. We honestly could not have been happier with everything: the hosts, the apartment, the grounds, the location. It was all so so perfect.
