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 green valleys dotted with dark trees), and its proximity to Florence, Siena and Assisi and their artistic treasures.The lower Tuscan countryside is also full of interesting and historic Medieval towns and hamlets. The small unassuming town of Buonconvento (very near La Ripolina) is very friendly, and very Italian.It is a town without a T-shirt store but one with at least two very good restaurants, a small museum, and ample services for visitors.
All in all our stay in La Ripolina with its handsome accomadations and its very ample breakfast, was a very satisfying and quite affordable experience.
- 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
