Le Ripe an elegant Italian vacation home with stunning panoramic views of the Tuscan countryside and a 20 minute walk to charming town with restaurants, shops, services.
This spacious sand colored two story dwelling is a majestic fortress standing proudly against the rolling hills of Tuscany and the vast expanse of blue sky above - harkening back to the days of Rome's triumph and the agrarian society it once represented. The lawns, pergolas, patios, and separate annex, combined with the warmth of the interiors, make La Ripe an unforgettable destination.
The house is reached via a rustic dirt road and offers breathtaking, panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. Once inside, guests will be embraced by the warmth of the soft lighting, the many alcoves, nooks and crannies, and the comfortable furnishings. The driveway leads to the large foyer - entry on the ground floor leads directly into the kitchen with a cozy sitting area with fireplace and laundry area. The space unfolds into a dining area, study, and large living room with fireplace and desk area. There are four bedrooms in the main house. The entire house is air-conditioned. Directly down a hill, within full view of the villa, is a two story annex with four bedrooms. It has a cozy living area with a fireplace and a small kitchen - French doors lead to a dining space with dramatic views. The annex only has air-conditioning in the bedrooms. Both houses have a flat screen TV in many of the bedrooms and living areas.
La Ripe is only 20 minutes from a charming hill town for restaurants, shopping and a luxurious thermal spa. It is ideally positioned for touring Tuscany & Umbria, with good access to Florence and Rome.
We offer pricing sleeping 10 persons in the main villa. Please inquirer.
