Villa Ripertoli is our beautiful farmhouse in the heart of Chianti, mid-way between Florence & Siena, in its own secluded 40-acre-estate, with magnificent views of the Tuscan countryside. It is a family home, superbly furnished with every conceivable facility, where we spend several weeks every year. It sleeps up to 17 comfortably, in a main house and 2 close-by cottages, all air-conditioned. The main house can be rented on its own, and either or both cottages added later if required. There are 8 double bedrooms, each with its own ensuite bathroom, a lovely large heated swimming pool with an electric safety cover, and over an acre of well-irrigated garden. Marisa has been our housekeeper for 30 years, helped by her family who also maintain the garden and pool. An outstanding local cook is...Villa Ripertoli is our beautiful farmhouse in the heart of Chianti, mid-way between Florence & Siena, in its own secluded 40-acre-estate, with magnificent views of the Tuscan countryside.

The charming towns of Greve-in-Chianti and Panzano are both within a 10-minute drive. We take great pleasure in ensuring that Ripertoli's comfort and facilities are at the highest level, and are rewarded by our many 5-star reviews. Ripertoli has 600 olive trees, from which we produce our own extra-virgin olive oil every year. Every guest is provided with a free unlimited supply of Ripertoli olive oil during their stay, and the opportunity to purchase more to take home. Almost all our guests do - it's the best olive oil in the world !More

Interaction with guests
Marisa will welcome you, give you the keys, show you round, and make sure you are happy and comfortable at Ripertoli. She will not disturb you, but is always available to help/cook/clean/baby-sit if that's what you'd like; she lives 10 minutes from Ripertoli. I live in England but am always available by email, text & phone; I can fix most things remotely provided you let me know about them.

About the neighborhood
Ripertoli is a private 40-acre estate, entered via a vineyard just off the SP (Strada Provinciale) 118, by the milestone showing 7 Km to Panzano. It's secluded, on a hillside, with the nearest visible neighbour half a mile away. The views are of olive groves, small vineyards, plenty of woods, and distant mountain tops. It will have looked pretty similar 1,000 years ago ! But the nearby town of Greve is very civilised, with 3 banks and 6 butchers, There are many local excellent local restaurants, and 250 Chianti estates which mostly welcome visitors provided you buy a few bottles before you leave. Florence is a 40-minute drive away, Siena a little further but less than an hour. Arezzo, San Gimignano and Volterra are all worth a visit. Best of all is just driving around the Chianti count...
How to get there
Most European guests use Pisa airport, which is one hour's drive away from Ripertoli, but Bologna is not much further away, and there are some flights into the small airport at Florence. Intercontinental guests often arrive at Rome or Milan, both of which are about three hour's drive away. We provide detailed advice on how to get there on our own website, which FlipKey and Trip Advisor make it difficult for us to reference, but if you put Ripertoli into your usual search engine you will find it immediately ! As hands-on owners we are always happy to provide personal advice to genuine potential clients, as our reviews attest.
