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... More

My parents (mid 60s)and I stayed here for our 'week in Tuscany', to chill and relax midway through our 5 weeks in Italy. It was perfectly located and adequate for a relax. It is also ideally located as a base to visit nearby towns of Montalcino (overrated in our minds), Montepulciano(loved it!!!), Pienza (LOVED it more) and even Sant' Antimo.... More

Stayed at La Ripolina for 2 nights in October. The owner, Laura, speaks English and is helpful if you need advice for restaurants or even booking future accommodations for your trip. (She did this for a couple who were also staying there.) La Ripolina has both apartments and b&b accommodations so something for whatever you need. Breakfast was good with... More

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... More

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... More

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

“I'd say Pieve di Paina for the views, if Pieve Focolare is occupied next door, you'd have to share the courtyard. You'll be a 10 min walk from the pool.”
