Stumbled across La Ripa by chance on trip advisor and am so glad we did. The "apartment" we stayed in was as big as a house and very well equipped including dishwasher, washing machine & clothes airer; stove/oven, 2 toilets - even had our very own wood fired pizza oven/BBQ on our own verandah overlooking beautifully manicured gardens with vineyards in the distance. We didn't swim in the pool ourselves but it looked very inviting and, as there are oly 4 apartments at La Ripa you pretty much get it to yourself. Duccio was an amazing host who could not do enough for us (even booking us on a Chianti wine tasting tour at 10 o'clock at night for the next day) and was always willing to share his local knowledge- his tips were priceless. We had a car so La Ripa was in the perfect location for a Tuscan adventure with close proximity to San Gimignano, Sienna and Florence.
We highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a base in Tuscany and will definitely stay there again ourselves, hopefully in the not too distant future.

And a shining blue pearl: our swimming pool. ... more less
