Customer Reviews

Overall:
Thie villa was beautiful and very large. The view was spectacular with San Gimignano in the distance. The pool was enormous and well maintained. The management were very helpful (as much as their limited English allowed).
Enjoyed Most:
The pool, the view and the spaciousness were all excellent.
Enjoyed Least:
The cost of using the air-conditioning was high. We were there in a heat wave and the air-conditioning was used extensively during the afternoon and overnight.
Surrounding Area:
Villa Riccardo was very well located being close to San Gimignano, Poggibonsi, Monteriggioni, Siena and other local medieval sites.
Nearby Events or Locales:
You would definitely need a car to get around. Poggibonsi was about 7 kms away which was where the large supermarket was located.
Tips or Restaurants:
Get your groceries stocked up by Saturday evening as not much is open on a Sunday.
Directions:
The directions were good.
Check In Out:
Ask the manager what is included or not - the water in the fridge was free but we didn't realize it until check out. There is limited information about the place however if you are prepared to ask questions, the managers will help. They do have limited English so if you have a translator on your phone or a English-Italian translation book it would be helpful.

Overall:
Magical.
Enjoyed Most:
The children enjoyed the pool. We all enjoyed the location and the view. We enjoyed the spaciousness of the villa and privacy for those that wanted it. We loved eating in the outside area. When we had any issues the management team immediately responded , especially Roberto and Manuela.
Enjoyed Least:
The WiFi was pretty limited. At times we had an issue with the water pressure.
Surrounding Area:
The ease of accessing interesting places in the surrounding area. Food shopping close by, too.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Poggibonsi--had to drive there.
Tips or Restaurants:
We followed suggestions of Manuela and Roberto and they were all excellent.
Check In Out:
We would suggest written information on how to use air conditioning washing machine, dishwasher, etc.

Overall:
we all just loved it and nobody wanted to leave.We had 6 adults and 6 children and the villa was large enough to accommodate us all comfortably and give us space. It was the type of experience that you could not repeat as it was just so special. Roberto and Manuela were most helpful. Roberto helped us when we had a puncture on one of the cars...he also gave some of the adults an excellent tour of the wine cellars and a wine tasting of the wines produced on the Property. The property was very well appointed and well equipped. Everything was really of excellent quality.If we had any issues or queries we just had to ring them and they would come and attend to it.
Enjoyed Most:
The view, space, the kids loved the swimming pool, the outdoor eating area where we could sit around and relax and chat after meals.
Enjoyed Least:
WIFI was erratic
Surrounding Area:
visiting the surrounding towns.. we also managed to see some of Il Palio in Siena. We caught the local train to Florence where we spent the day. excellent restaurants recommended by the managers of the Property.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Poggibonsi . We had to drive there. However the COOP was excellent for shopping with fresh produce and all sorts of interesting food to try.
Tips or Restaurants:
we bought a clothesline and tied it up between 2 trees. good for hanging wet swimming gear out to dry.
Check In Out:
It would be good to have written instructions on how to use air conditioning, oven, tv etc.Take care with use of air conditioning ..it can really run away with you. I did not realise that the daily cleaning of the swimming pool was an extra cost. I just assumed that it was included in the overall rental cost.
