Agriturismo Il Rigo

Official star rating:
A long-established agriturismo located in a glorious setting just outside lovely old San Quirico in the Val d’Orica, Il Rigo is a working organic farm run by the ninth generation of the Simonelli family.
Guest accommodation is in two old stone case coloniche (farmhouses) where you can expect comfortable rooms filled with country antiques and pretty bed-linens, with views of the Val d’Ocia to die for.
The farm produces organic stone-ground flour, olive oil, jams, pasta and sourdough bread, all of which – along with other local specialities – can be sampled in the restaurant.
Il Rigo is ideal for a rustic farm holiday, in one of the most beautiful corners of Tuscany.
Il Rigo enjoys an utterly peaceful setting in the gently undulating farmland of the wide-open Val d’Orcia. Approached from the main road (the SS2) via quiet country lanes, there is little traffic noise to disturb the peace.
The nearest town of any size is San Quirico, a very attractive place with lots of good restaurants and cafés and a magnificent church; the 12th-century Collegiata with three beautifully carved portals.
