About Giuseppe Di Palma

I am a mathematician with a passion for nature and cinema.

I am married and have two children of school age.

Giuseppe Di Palma purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Giuseppe Di Palma chose Riparbella

For a long time I was looking for a typical Tuscan stone farmhouse. In Riparbella the old houses have a name that identifies them. When I saw 'La Ciliegiola' I fell in love with.

I want to leave the house for my children, so I did not divide it into studios, and I left the original two large apartments.

In the meantime, it will be a pleasure for us to share the beauty of the house and the places around with guests who love nature and the good things of the past.

What makes this cottage unique

To get to La Ciliegiola you pass by a 300 meters long dirt road in the woods. The house is built of stone and from there you can not see other houses around. It's surrounded by a park around which there is a forest: peace is absolute.

I've already seen the passing of deers hares and porcupines in front of the house! From Ciliegiola you can also see the sea.

The house has been chosen by the young director Luca Dal Canto as location for a short film dedicated to the painter Amedeo Modigliani titled 'Due giorni d'estate' You can see the trailer on YouTube.

wunderschöner Toskanaurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten 2 tolle Wochen in Riparbella. Das Haus ist liebevoll restauriert und man hat in der Alleinlage absolut seine Ruhe. Wir waren mit 11 Personen dort und der Platz war ausreichend. Die Vermieter sind sehr herzlich und haben uns toll empfangen und bekocht. Wir haben ein paar gute Ausflugstips bekommen. Das Grundstück, das man ganz für sich alleine hat ist riesig und wir durften uns im Gemüsegarten bedienen.

Das Haus ist gut ausgestattet und geplegt, die Möbel liebevoll im toskanischen Stil zusammengestellt. Einziges Manko ist die holperige und steile Zufahrtsstrasse, die man nicht mit einem tiefer gelegten Auto befahren sollte.

Zum Strand benötigt man etwa 15 Minuten, wir haben uns aber auch verschiedene Strände in der Region angesehen. Im Ort kann man alle Dinge für den Alltag bekommen und auch gut essen gehen. Ein naheliegendes Ausflugsziel ist Volterra, aber auch Siena und Florenz und natürlich Pisa sind gut erreichbar.

Car: recommended

The house, called 'The Ciliegiola', is completely independent, located in a quiet location, surrounded by 15. 000 m² of enclosed land, with olive and fruit trees.

Riparbella is a small village located in the hills of the Etruscan coast, where you can find all major services such as bank, pharmacy, grocery stores, and several restaurants.

The beaches of Cecina are a 10 minute drive. With a few more minutes you reach the famous white beaches of Vada, the Gulf of Baratti and the archaeological Etruscan Populonia.

For children we recommend the 'Park suspended' Riparbella and the water park 'Water Village' Cecina and the playground 'Cavallino Matto' Donoratico.

A few kilometers the medieval villages of Casale Marittimo, Montescudaio, Guardistallo, Campiglia Marittima and little more distant the famous Pisa and Volterra.

Riparbella is located 10 kilometers from the highway, directly connected to the A12 motorway.

Pisa airport is 45 minutes away by car.
