Enjoyed our stay but with some disappointments

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at La Ripa for nearly a full month and enjoyed it. It was clean, everything worked well, and it was well located for some of less common places to visit in Tuscany. Monteriggioni was very close and wonderful. Siena, San Gimignano, Colle Val d'Elsa and a few others were also great and easily visited by bus.

There were a couple things that disappointed me though:

We thought we'd have the place to ourselves and we did, sort of. La Ripa is actually more of an apartment in a house which has two other families living in it (the owners and their children/grandchildren). The walls are VERY thin to the other living areas. You are able to hear all of their conversations, all of their music practice, and all of the heavy footed child's play/running. Most of the time there was no disturbance, like when they are in school or away during the day, but at least a couple times a day you had to do your best to ignore the noise. If they were other guests I'd feel better about lodging my complaints to them often, but they were living there with their family and we were the guests. I did not think it was appropriate as a guest to ask someone to change their lifestyle in their own home. Needless to say, it was not a month of peaceful solitude.

There were also only 2 of us and the listing says it can have up to 5 (whether you are 1 person or 5 there is no change in the price at time of booking). Since we had booked a place with two bedrooms and a kitchen for a full month I had invited my friends and family to come visit us for a week if they could. Sure enough I had one friend accept. Out of courtesy, since they'd be having new neighbors, I told the owner I had someone who wanted to visit us for about a week. I was surprised that they wanted more money for us to have a guest stay in the extra room we were already renting. The only extra they did was give us some sheets for the bed we weren't using and a towel. As far as official rules go it was gray area, but as far as right and wrong goes I believe the right thing is: if a couple rents a 2 bedroom place for a month and needs only one of them, make them feel at home and let them have a guest without it being a big deal.

The main reason on we booked this place was to relax for a while in the middle of our backpacking trip around the world. We wanted a place to feel like a home for a little while and at that it almost succeeded. Besides that it is a great base for visiting the surrounding area.

Very nice place to stay and to discover Tuscany! We recommend it!

  • 5 of 5

You spent an excellent stay at this house.

We received a warm welcome and very pleasant contact with the family.

The location is very interesting to discover Tuscany area as Monterrigiano is between Firenze and Sienna.

All accommodations in-house.

Very clean and new place for a family.

The large garden was very nice for our kids who could enjoyed it safely with many equipments.

We highly recommend this place !

Thanks again for everything.

Regards,

Charles & its family

Real Italian experience in historic house

  • 5 of 5

We liked our stay in the house. The house is big, and has many historic features. The location is excellent! Near historic routes. We liked to see the life of a real Italian family (with kids) downstairs. We absolutely loved the Monteriggioni mediavial festival - it was the top highlight of our 2weeks in Toscany.

Thank you Marcellina for being kind and friendly!

Séjour très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Un endroit tranquille, une très belle maison très confortable, des hôtes très accueillants et à l'écoute.

Franchement un endroit à recommander pour les amoureux de calme, de nature, tout en restant près des zones touristiques attrayantes de Toscane.

Merci encore à nos hôtes dont nous garderons un très bon souvenir.
