For over 4 years we come to what we call... our second home.... This is really Tuscany, this is the italian dream. Ripostena has several big appartments with private terasses and a common swimmingpool. From your terras or swimmingpool you can see San Gimignano and the rest of the landscape for maybe 50 km. The way every guest is treated... More

Our family of 2 adults and 3 children under 14 years stayed at Ripostena June 2011 and to this day we still talk about what an unforgettable time we had there. I've only just signed up to trip adviser hence the delay in writing this review. Location, service, meals, cleanliness, friendliness, were all 100 percent. I would thoroughly recommend this... More

The old farm buildings are beautifully restored into fabulous apartments. The service is excellent. The manager, delightful Martina, speaks perfect English, and her assistant Teresa can manage German and French as well. The... More

We took advantage of the large... More
