“Tailor-made” hospitality

If you have a trip in mind that you would like to make, places you would like to visit, or a particular dish you would like to taste, let us know – we’ll do all we can to make the experience possible for you.

100% Family Friendly

Apartment facilities

Children

Children are most welcome at Rigone in Chianti. At no additional cost, we can provide you with: bed with linen, high chair, cutlery and crockery, safety devices. Please ask at time of booking.

Wi-Fi

Agriturismo Rigone offers an internet connection to all guests. You can surf with your laptop or smartphone, from your apartment and also from the poolside. Please remember however that Montaione does not yet have fibre broadband and that the quality of the connection will never be like the one you have at home!

Heating

Each apartment has independent central heating so you can decide how and when to turn it on. You won’t be charged any additional cost for heating, but we ask that you behave as if you were at home. We’re doing our best to protect the wonderful environment that surrounds us, so please help us by not leaving the heating on when you go out or when you have the doors and windows open.

And when it’s hot ….?

In Mediterranean countries we know how to protect ourselves from the heat: close the shutters when the sun is out and open the windows at night when the air is cool. The thick walls dating from the 1700s will do the rest, keeping you cool throughout the day. And for added comfort, you’ll find either a ceiling or a table fan in each apartment.

Mosquito screens

All windows have a mosquito screen. We treat the large park with natural products, but you’ll certainly come across a mosquito or two.

Bedroom, bathroom and kitchen linen

On arrival you will be provided with a set of towels (face and bidet) and one shower towel per person. You’ll find bed linen and kitchen towels in the apartment. (Beds will be made up, or course!) If you’ve decided to spend a longer holiday with us, we’ll provide you with a complete weekly change. We think this frequency is right, as this is what we do in our family.

If you would like your sheets and towels changing more often, we’ll ask you for an additional fee (please ask at reception).

If travelling by air, we thought you could do with a large pool towel – please ask for one at reception, it’s free of charge!

… a few extra words:

We would like to inform you that all our linen is treated with professional washing and sanitising systems, and it is delivered to us every week in sealed packages.

To offer you the best in hygiene, the bedspreads and shower curtains are changed at the end of each stay.

Cleaning during your stay

You’ll find the apartment clean on arrival and there will be no further cleaning. If you would like extra cleaning during your stay, please ask at reception. We’ll ask you for an additional fee.

Dishwasher

Each apartment has a dishwasher, an essential item giving you and your family more time to spend together and to enjoy your holiday to the full.

Large fridge with freezer

We don’t want you to spend your holiday at the supermarket, but relaxing! That’s why we’ve equipped all out apartments with large refrigerators suitable for families.

The swimming pool

Our large, panoramic infinity pool is our jewel in the crown. After a good swim, you can sit in the jacuzzi corner and enjoy a relaxing whirlpool. The beach entry allows you to gently enter the water and reach the deepest part gradually. For a scenic effect, we’ve built our fantastic waterfall. The little ones have a children’s area, where they can play in the water in complete safety. The terracotta solarium with sunbeds and umbrellas offers enough space for relaxation.
