Characteristic stone built house with private pool in Tuscany
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Beautiful house with private pool !

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house and pool with great views in Tuscany . We have been here several times, in different houses that Graziano (the owner) has in agriturismo La Ripa. We have been in both the home that is fixed to his own house and the detached villas below and slightly further away ( la Madonna ). First time in 2006, the last time in 2013 and several times in between !

What makes that we have been multiple times? The great kindness and hospitality of Graziano, several beautiful houses , in terms of decor fine (including dishwasher, washing machine , very nice especially with children ), the fantastic views from the houses, but also from the pools ( at the house a little further down the lawn and at la Madonna these are private pools, wonderful, all of which are held perfectly clean).

On the site there is one small friendly dog and a few cats around, if you do not like cats , it is fine to send them away, but our kids loved it to pet them!

Graziano already been appointed by me as very welcoming; a drink , even a dinner at his home, that all makes you feel very welcome ! And our son got a ride with Graziano in the motor mower and a combine harvesting corn, fantastic for a 5/6/7 year old boy !

Graziano can recommend some nice or beautiful lesser known places to visit , such as a monastery with very well-preserved frescoes and Radicondoli Beach , a bend in the local river where you can swim.

Belforte , which in terms of distance is to walk , there's a nice restaurant (incl delicious wood-fired pizzas) , Radicondoli , 5 to 10 minutes by car , has several wonderful restaurants and two supermarkets, a butcher , a cafe , etc.

Belforte is quite central in Tuscany , which make the most important places like Siena , San Gimignano , Volterra and Florence all easily accessible by car (about an hour ) .

We have been here more often, but definitely come back another year to La Ripa !

From the Etruscan to the Romans to the Renaissance, Tuscany is possibly the greatest repository of art in the world, from extraordinary paintings and sculpture to frescoes and architectural masterpieces.

Tuscany: a row of cypress trees breaking the blue sky on a rolling hilltop. Olive groves and grapevines marching tidily down the side of a slope. Little medieval hill towns gazing down upon a country that has been carefully cultivated. Among the most important monuments to see in Radicondoli we point out here the Collegiata (Collegiate Church), the Pieve di San Simone (Saint Simon Parish), the Convento di San Francesco (Saint Francis Convent) and the Castello di Elci (Elci's Castle). Among the numerous celebrations periodically taking place in Radicondoli we remind here the ancient 'May First Fest' held on May first. The celebrations consists of outdoor walks and a parade of a music band playing and singing all day long.
