Villa Ripoli was originally a lookout guard tower, built about the first half of the 1600 by Ferdinand II of the Medici, used by a small group of soldiers to guard against the arrival of the enemy. Its position is about 2,5 kms from Monterchi, the last piece of the land of the Granduke of Tuscany, close to the Papal State and world famous for its frescoes by Piero della Francesca the Madonna del Parto.In 1894 Francesco Rosadi (the year of construction is sculptered on the ground floor fireplace), the grandfather of the actual owner, extended the tower, giving it the form and the dimension that we can admire today. The 2 hectar garden is looked after with great passion by the owners. There are olive trees, biological peach and plum trees, to which the guests are invited “to help themselve...Villa Ripoli was originally a lookout guard tower, built about the first half of the 1600 by Ferdinand II of the Medici, used by a small group of soldiers to guard against the arrival of the enemy.

The 2 hectar garden is looked after with great passion by the owners. There are olive trees, biological peach and plum trees, to which the guests are invited “to help themselves”. There are roses, lavanda and rosemary which fill the air with delightful, typical Tuscan perfumes, very difficult to forget. ACCOMMODATION: the villa is 250 sqm and before we go inside we would like to admire the original structure from the outside. The form, as well as the material used, are typical of this area. Stone is the dominating material, but also wood plays its part, as does the wrought iron used in the outside furniture. The windows have been modernized, but the style fits in well with that of the villa. Some of the original wooden doors on the inside have been restored maintaining the original style. The most important part of any hospitality structure is obviously the bedrooms. The bedrooms, all with AC, represent the highlight of the Tuscan rustic style. Wood, “cotto”, wrought iron materials. The furnishing are simple, almost severe, but this is part of the Tuscan country house. On the other hand, in the bedrooms we can find the perfect combination between rustic style and modern comforts. On the ground floor there is a spacious well equipped kitchen, a beautiful dining room with antique fireplace and the characteristic reading room. The ground floor has: Kitchen with fridge, microwave oven, stove and burners, American coffee machine, taster, dishwasher Dining room which seats 10 people, divan and armchairs, sat TV, telephone, antique fireplace.
