About us

A stunningly restored property immersed in nature where fabulous contemporary design and rustic furnishings have been majestically incorporated into a Tuscan Podere steeped in history, overlooking the hills of Monte Nero, close to Volterra and San Gimignano.

A perfect location to escape the stresses of everyday life and treat yourself to a secluded holiday. Podere Ripi maybe rented as your own Tuscan property by the week. It boasts three independent appartments with ensuite bathrooms for each bedroom, ideal for sharing with friends and family. Individual suites may also be booked separately with residents sharing the spacious grounds and biopool.


Podere Ripi dates back to the 18th Century, it was a farmhouse and then left a ruin for many years. It has been lovingly restored and the owners have used great skill incorporating locally crafted stone, creating a gorgeous country home using handfired terracotta tile flooring and preserving many of the existing ancient features including an exterior wood burning oven. The furnishings and interiors are of a very high standard with walk in showers, modern kitchens and induction cookers. Hand sculpted marble sinks and all the modern amenities that one could wish for have been installed whilst retaining its simple Tuscan charm. Every window boasts a panoramic view of the uninterrupted Tuscan countryside with breath taking sunsets all year round.
