Stayed at La Ripolina 29/5-3/6/14,you need to get out of the cities to see Tuscany at its best! Laura and her staff make you very welcome and the facilities are excellent. Make sure you check the location as there are no signs from the nearby village of Buenoconvento!

La ripolina is just what you need, amazing location and attention to details. The owners are very friendly and attentive. Breakfast was beautiful, homemade cakes and fresh fruits with a great view. Rooms are nice and cozy. The place is perfect to visit S iena and Montalcino. Nice restaurants in Buonconvento town. Highly reccomended!

We rented the two apartments on the back of the Abbey for my friends and that was perfect, its location on top of the hill and a 10 minute walk from the main farmhouses meant that we could chat in the courtyard long in to the night without disturbing other guests. I also rented 3 rooms in the main B&B... More

In the heart of southern Tuscany, La Ripolina offers rustic farm stay accommodation in easy driving distance to Siena, Montalcino, Cortona, Montepulciano etc. Buonconvento is 1.5kms away and offers some great restaurants, and its own village charm. The property is surrounded by productive crop farms, and beautiful views across the plane and hills. The quiet star-lit summer nights were a... More

We stayed at La Ripolina B&B six years ago, and again in early June 2012 for seven days. We found it just as lovely as it was then, and Signora Cresti just as friendly, helpful, and gracious as she was before. The reason that we chose La Ripolina and Buonconvento is because of its beautiful location ( rolling hills and... More

My parents (mid 60s)and I stayed here for our 'week in Tuscany', to chill and relax midway through our 5 weeks in Italy. It was perfectly located and adequate for a relax. It is also ideally located as a base to visit nearby towns of Montalcino (overrated in our minds), Montepulciano(loved it!!!), Pienza (LOVED it more) and even Sant' Antimo.... More

Stayed at La Ripolina for 2 nights in October. The owner, Laura, speaks English and is helpful if you need advice for restaurants or even booking future accommodations for your trip. (She did this for a couple who were also staying there.) La Ripolina has both apartments and b&b accommodations so something for whatever you need. Breakfast was good with... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
La Ripolina is situated in the heart of the "Crete Senesi" (Sienese Clay Hills) about 25 km from Siena. It is close to Montalcino, land of the famous Brunello wine, and is surrounded by 100 ha of vineyards and grain cultivations. These charming hills make the countryside unique and ever so beautiful in all seasons. This area is full of history, with its ancient stones and red brick walls, and therefore is a special place for physical and mental relaxation. ... more   less
