All of the recently restored apartments have heating, fireplace, television, independent entrance and a private space outdoors. The furniture consists of original Tuscan pieces dating to the late 19th century. In the farmhouse Ripoli, dating back to the 16th century, there are B/B rooms with private bathroom.

Other Things to Note
Near the Ripolina there is everything: a close riding center, spa, places of art and culture. But above all we offer ourselves and our hospitality.
The Ripolina is a place of rest and tranquility then we ask our guests to respect above all the rest of the others do not bother taking behaviors. But we like to share moments with guests and some evenings we organize dinners together. Pets are welcome, we also have a dog, Cleo. You can smoke to 'open, throwing cigarette butts in the containers and in the apartments.
Great host, fantastic house, picturesque landscapes, delicious breakfasts. What more could you want?
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at La Ripolona. Laura was kind enough to collect us from the train station upon arrival and lent us bikes to ride into town. The property is stunning and the rooms were perfect, tidy and comfortable. Laura is an exceptional host and I will definitely return in the future. I highly recommend La Ripolona to anyone considering a stay here.
Laura welcomed us very friendly and gave us very good tips for the best spots which we should visit. Our room was very nice (tuscany stile!) and clean - only the flush of the toilet was very loud, but no problem. The breakfast (just for us 2) was great with delicious ham and cheese, fresh fruits, home-made cake, coffee, warm milk, eggs, etc etc. Really lovely! La Ripolina itself is a great place a bit in the middle of nowhere. If you search a quite place you´re absolutely right there. Unfortunately we had not the best wheter so that we could only enjoy one time the nice pool. In 10 days Italy we couldn´t relax so much as we did there! Thanks Laura!
Amazing place with a running views. We were in Italy for a week and this was our best experience. Laura was extremely friendly and the stay really gave you a feel of the Italian Tuscan hills. I would highly recommend it.
We arrived wet anx cold and were warmly welcomed by Laura znd Mario, such a beautiful amazing spot, truly worth staying a few days here, gorgeous pool too, we only had one night sadly. Thd breakfast is amazing too, thanks so much.
Siamo stati al casale di Laura solo una notte, un posto splendido, un casale tenuto benissimo e una ospitalità impeccabile! La colazione è molto abbondante e ricca, torneremo sicuramente. Consigliatissimo!
One of my favorite Air BnB places thus far. Laura was an exceptionally gracious host who put a considerable amount of effort in to preparing a gorgeous breakfast complete with a delicious homemade apple cake (my favorite!). She was a pleasure to talk to and of course the property was stunning... In the midst of the beautiful Tuscan scenery. A place I will never forget! I hope to return in the future!!
