Description
From the heart of Tuscany LARIPOLINA offers its guests a "special" holiday. The farm stretches for 40 hectares, it grows cereals and the grapes from which the red wine of Orcia is produced.

A palette of colors, given by the alternation of the seasons, makes the eye happy and the tranquility of the place rejuvenates the spirit and the mind.

Hospitality is familiar and helpful as the Tuscan people know how to give.

The apartments in the farmhouse are located in the medieval Pieve di Piana and in nearby houses dating back to the past centuries. All homes have TV, wifi and outdoor space. The furnishings consist of original Tuscan furniture from the end of the century.

For guests who wish, we can prepare breakfast with delicious homemade cakes that enrich the delicious buffet of Tuscan products, on request dinner.

For families with small children there is a cot and high chair available.

Swimming pool, mountain biking and bicycle reception service, ping pong, barbeque and children's playground alive the living room.

La Ripolina is located on the cycle path of the Eroica and Via Francigena.

The nearest town is Buonconvento, which is 2, 5 km.

The proximity to Siena and other beautiful cities of art such as Montalcino, Pienza and Montepulciano make Ripolina an excellent starting point for excursions that may include the Abbeys of Monte Oliveto Maggiore and S. Antimo and the countless museums of which it is Rich territory. The famous thermal spas surrounding it make it suitable even for those seeking a stay / well-being
Conventions are available with local restaurants, spa facilities and horse riding, and on request Tuscan cooking courses.

The coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea with the splendid Tuscan sea is about 1 hour drive away.

Breakfast
The breakfast is one of the most beautiful moments of my workday because its the one in which I can meet my guests. I love talking with them while the servant breakfast. I tell them of my land, my story and that of the places where I live and I give them all the information to spend a nice holiday.

Starting the day with a nice breakfast makes you feel better and I've always thought this. First, because our breakfast is eaten in particular places, in the summer on the panoramic terrace and in the other seasons in the rooms of the old cellar where you can still smell the wine. This makes you to feel at home, leave a little sleepy from your room and you begin to feel the smell of freshly brewed coffee, find your buffet table laden and full of good and genuine things, a feast for the eyes and a pleasure for the palate.

Good start to the day.

Cakes and cookies all made by me (Laura) that are a delicious and I always like to experiment with new ones.
Restaurant
The restaurant at La Ripolina has a unique, warm and welcoming atmosphere. It is located in premises that were once used as a cellar and wine store. It is a charming place where you can taste typical Tuscan cuisine recipes.

Our products come from the company's vegetable garden, the wine comes from our cellar, and the flour comes from our fields. All other products used are produced in Tuscany.

Abbiamo trascorso tre giorni presso questa struttura, alloggiando in un ex convento molto suggestivo. Il personale è stato molto gentile e attento alle nostre richieste. La colazione ottima e abbondante. Torneremo in estate per provare anche la bellissima piscina.

The answer from the host:
Grazie signor Zanaboni per le belle parole, accogliere di nuovo gli ospiti che decidono di stare ancora con noi ci fa sempre molto piacere. Dopo due esperienze in stagioni con la piscina non ancora aperta è indispensabile che facciate l'esperienza di giornate di relax intorno alla nostra piscina panoramica. A presto.

Posizione di assoluto relax adatta a chi vuole godersi una vacanza di riposo; la colazione viene servita un pò tardi e questo non aiuta chi invece vuole godere delle prime ore del mattino per far movimento all'aria aperta. Troppe tettoie in eternit. Complessivamente una buona sistemazione.
stayed from 09/02/2016 to 09/05/2016
The answer from the host:
Gentilissimo Signor Reato, la ringrazio per le sue parole su La Ripolina. La Ripolina è una struttura con poche camere e bisogna trovare il giusto tempo per accontentare la maggior parte dei nostri ospiti. Le 8:30, contrariamente alle sue abitudini molto mattiniere, sono un' ora improponibile per certi ospiti che amano riposarsi in vacanza. Sinceramente sarei curiosa di sapere le sue motivazioni relativamente alla votazione che ci ha dato, ma forse se deciderà di farci visita un'altra volta, visto che ci ha definiti una buona sistemazione, sarà lei stesso a spiegarmeli. Le impressioni dei clienti sono sempre importanti. Cordiali saluti, Laura.

La Ripolina si trova in un luogo molto bello vicino a Buonconvento. Posta sulla sommità di una collina la struttura è tenuta molto bene, vi si gode un'ottima accoglienza molto famigliare e attenta: sembra di andare a casa di vecchi amici! La signora, padrona di casa molto cara, ha saputo anche consigliarci itinerari piacevoli e molto interessanti. Oltre a un'ottima colazione fatta in casa che corrisponde alle immagini del sito, vi si può assaporare tutta la dolcezza del paesaggio toscano. Abbiamo soggiornato in un appartamento ampio e ben arredato. Lo consiglio caldamente sia per soggiorni di coppia o con amici, sia per famiglie. Non mancano le possibilità di passeggiate a cavallo o itinerari in bicicletta. Se avrò l'opportunità tornerò sicuramente: è un'ottima base per scoprire una Toscana minore ma splendida e per nulla scontata! Il cielo stellato della notte completa il piacere delle giornate!

Sono tornato dopo 15 giorni sfuggendo per qualche ora alla vita quotidiana che non ti lascia più di tanto pensare. La sera mi sedevo sulla panchina a guardare il cielo, anzi le stelle, tante, troppe per chi come me è abituato a scorgerle appena dalla terrazza del condominio cittadino dove abito. Per godere di questo spettacolo è necessario venire qui, dove lo spazio infinito della valle che c'è di fronte senza luci, strade, case mi ha fatto pensare a quanto ci sia sopra di noi e non lo vediamo. Ma forse è utile avere anche un libro di astronomia che ci conduca alla scoperta del cielo. Per conoscere invece quanto di bello c'è alla Ripolina, chiedete a Mario e a Laura che vi guideranno alla scoperta di questo meraviglioso angolo di Toscana.

Accoglienza cordiale, discreta. struttura splendida in uno splendido contesto. relax assicurato. Unico neo, per le camere non prevede la cena, ma questo offre un pretesto per andare in paese e fare due passi anche lì.
