The Perfect Home Base for exploring Tuscany
We appreciated the tranquillity, the warm hospitality and the beauty of the house, grounds and surroundings. Perched on a hill, this farmhouse has been lovingly renovated and decorated - and the result is like a dream. We were in apartment "I Ghiri". Upstairs is really spacious, downstairs is cosy. Every apartment has its own private patio as an outdoor living space but we were invited to roam the grounds freely: the woods, vineyard, olive tree orchard, garden, daisy lawn etc. Parents should be aware that the pool is not fenced off. If your kids are like ours and can amuse themselves with lizards, butterflies, fireflies (after dark), daisies, poppies, pebbles and water, they will enjoy La Ripa! The dogs were docile. Our hosts were never too busy for a friendly chat and were on hand if we needed anything at all. An unpaved white road (quite steep in places!) takes you down through the fields to Ulignano village where there is a bakery and a tiny food shop.
