La Ripolina
Ranked #4 of 6 Buonconvento B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 26, 2009

The building is a very nice renovated old italian farm, typical for the area. Our appartement was large and we had space enough. The kitchen was very well equiped. The swimming pool was large and necessary to relax and have joy with the children. There were many open areas around the house that you could enjoy the view and to breathe the fresh air of Tosany in the afternoon or early in the morning.Of course be prepared for the mosquitos, not to disturb you.
Near by the house there was the super market and also the village of Buonconvento with nice ice-creams and quiet small restaurants-all in better prices than the bigger cities like Sienna. Sienna was three quarters drive.
But there are smaller and nicer villages and a person could visit a different one every day. They all have a nice center to visit.

Ripolina is situated on a hilltop just outside Buonconvento, with gorgeous views of the
Tuscan countryside including sunflower fields and working farms. We stayed in a large one bedroom in an ancillary building from the main house. Furnishings are comfortable, not plush. There are other rooms in the main house where a good typical buffet breakfast is served in a beautiful dining room. Also several apartments are scattered throughout the property. There is a good sized pool with great views as well.

The setting is wonderful, very quiet, about 1/2 mile off the main road and up a dirt road to the property, the beautiful old family home and farm of the owner/operator, Laura. We drove off leaving our clothing in the armadio and Laura had them in the mail to us the next day. This charming agriturismo/bed and breakfast is a real value and slice of Tuscany!

We had a great time at La Ripolina and found it to be to be a tranquil place- in a beautiful country setting (a misty morning view of the nearby counrtyside is now our desktop wallpaper)- and our host Laura was delightful, undestanding of our modest italian language and most helpful with lots of local information. The room was generous in size, comfortable and pleasant to be in. We strongly recommend this agriturismo that is perfectly positioned for day trips to all of South West Tuscany including the neatrby fabulous frescos in the MonteOliveto Abbazia.
