“Wonderful B&B with stunning views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2009

There are several things that make this place so special. One is the stunning views of the countryside from the huge windows in every one of the rooms of the apartment. The apartment consists of 2 suites with a shared living/dining area between the two. We rented both rooms so we had the complete apartment to ourselves. The rooms are just gorgeous and light filled. The other thing or person should I say, that makes it special is Sabrina herself, the owner of the apartment. She is such a warm, caring person, and you know you have met someone special the moment you meet her. She is just wonderful. If that were not enough, she also supplies a delicious breakfast along with pastries. My only regret is I only stayed one day. Wish to visit again for a much longer time. Orvieto although small is very quaint, pretty, and the evening passeggiata is huge.

The owner, Sabrina, knows how to make you feel at home. Her hospitality, warmth and resourcefulness were beyond our expectations. Her breakfasts were bountiful, homemade and delicious. The apartment was beautifully decorated, had all the amenities one would hope for and the view was outstanding. Sabrina is the ideal hostess, attending to every detail. She even tracked us down in the rain to offer us her "favorite" umbrella. Definitely 5 stars, and then some. Thank you, Sabrina.

This B&B is just a few steps from the town wall and the two very comfortable rooms offer magnificent views of the Umbrian countryside. Breakfast consisted not only of the usual continental fare but also freshly cooked scrambled eggs. Delicious! Nothing is too much trouble for Sabrina. We got badly lost trying to locate the Ripa Medici by car (satnav just doesn't work in narrow streets) but after locating it on foot Sabrina was only too happy to drive us to where our car was parked then guide us to the free car park (just an elevator ride and a few steps from the B&B). The warmth of the hospitality, in particular, will linger in the memory. The Ripa Medici B&B is a gem.

We stayed there for a night on August 26th. The location was excellent and easy to find. room was spacious enough and the view out the window was a perfect view of the rolling hills well known in central Italy. the breakfast prepared by Sabrina was made mostly from products from her mother's farm, fresh eggs and fruit. we enjoyed our stay there and would recommend without any hesitations.

Wow! The owner was the sweetest, friendliest woman ever! She truly takes pride in providing the absolute best for her guests...and with genuine kindness and sincerity. Her breakfast was the best breakfast of our entire 12-day Italy vacation. Request eggs, cheese, bread and tomatoes, SUPERB!!! The room was very comfortable and the perfect location for an evening stroll along the hillside, or to venture out to a great restaurant for dinner and drinks! You cannot take your car into the hilltop town so the parking is located in a parking garage at the bottom with an elevator to the top. Ripi Medici has signs by the parking garage elevators which allows easy access to the B&B. It's no more than 5 mins TOPS to park your car, take the elevator up and enter the B&B. Perfect place to stay when in Orvieto!!!! The rooms hold spectacular views of the countryside!!! Would return again in a heartbeat and highly recommend to ALL travellers!!!

A great place to stay in orvieto- we would recommend Sabrina's apartments to anyone..she is lovely and always willing to help with any questions we had. We arrived later than we thought we would--and unknowingly left her waiting outside the apartment to greet us..we felt terrible! but she didn't appear too fused about it (if it was me-i would be annoyed!)
she doesn't live on the premises-so make sure you let her know if you are going to be early or late!! The apartment was clean with the view everyone raves about-quite breathtaking, you can't quite believe what you're looking at..the food was great with Sabrina making cakes/tarts from home especially for us. We really enjoyed our stay here and highly recommend Ripa Medici. Would definitely stay again!

Nice reviews led me there. The view out the window is astounding. Not easy to find and driving in Orvieto is a little harrowing. Sabrina is a gracious hostess, cooked breakfast and was upbeat and friendly. Room was clean, quiet, bed could have been better. Out side the bedroom is a living room, other couple was served breakfast there as well, so had to keep b-room door closed at nite for privacy. Note: have to pay in CASH, no credit cards taken, only to reserve, so keep this in mind. Would go back there. Orvieto is nice for a few days but after that the "closed" quality of this charming ancient town might get to you.
