“Beautiful place and location, excellent staff and amazing value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2011

My wife and I stayed here recently, what a perfect place. Beautiful location, lovely building, helpful staff, and great value. The best place we stayed in all in all in our visit to Tuscany, made a change not to have to pay through the nose either! Would definitely recommend it!

I loved this villa. Beautiful scenery surrounding the villa. Volterra is an old walled town with lots to explore. Lucca will help you with anything you need, he even found me another place to stay for a night when the distance was too far to drive in one day.
The rooms were clean and roomy. Nothing fancy but just what I needed and wanted.
Be prepared to drive the opitome (sp?)of Italian roads to get to anywhere east!!! I was terrified my first day but quickly adjusted to the Italian style of driving. It was fun and easy once you understood the rules!!!!!
A lot of my fellow guests spent time on the coast and my understanding is that the roads west are much easier to drive!!
The breakfast was amazing!! I felt cared for by the ladies of the villa! The spread was fantastic, fresh bread, bruschetta, made with their own olive oil, local meats and cheeses. The pastries looked amazing. The view from the terrace, where breakfast was served, was spectacular. I could have just hung out there all day!!
I visited Chiani, Montalcino, Montepulciano and Orvieto while staying there (hence the overnight away from the villa).
I highly recommend this villa if you are exploring the western area of Tuscany.

Hotel Residence Villa Rioddi is a nice B&B in an updated Tuscan Villa. The rooms are nice and updated and they offer free parking. There is a nice swimming pool and the expansive back garden. The nightly rate of Euro 95 including breakfast and internet (only in lobby) was a fair price given that the B&B is located outside of the town center. If you are driving, this is a convenient location as when you visit Volterra, you will still need to park in one of the public parking lots outside the city walls. Downside on this B&B is the there is no elevator (as typical with B&Bs) but there are alot of stairs to climb if you have an upper room.

Pool was nice, water cool by our standards, but nice to cool off in. Well maintained property. Breakfast was amazing, the choices were overwhelming....the options unlimited and delicious. I was decadent enough to have tiramisu every morning! The women serving it are so gracious and kind! Room a/c and plenty large for a family with 2 tall teenagers. Cannot walk to town, but with a car is very close by. Quiet at night and wonderful views

In a large house, typical Tuscany style yet fully modernised to the highest standard. We were made extremely welcome, even though the hotel would have closed earlier for the winter without our booking. Large grounds, with large swimming pool, terraces, all with fabulous views of the valley and all immaculately kept. This establishment should definitely have more than 3 stars, speaking as people in the B&B business ourselves.
Only downside for some may be that it is a bit out of town, giving us a 20 minute walk or a slightly awkward drive, for dinner. During the season dinner is probably provided at the Villa
