ripostenaThe original name of the house is Ripostena, which means a sheltered and protected place and that's the reason why we chose the name “The house in the Woods”. It is an old country house which we personally restored with care and concern and with only slight external structural changes.

The location can be reached by a short dirt road amidst an old oak grove. Ripostena is only 10 km from Siena which can easily be reached in a few minutes, we are in the centre of a system of pathways which are clearly indicated by the CAI group (Italian Alpine Club) and you can therefore enjoy short or long walks and visit monasteries, hermitages and villas.

This is the so-called “Terra di Siena”, the region with its vineyards, yellow marble and famous “terra di siena” colour for oil paints (you can see a few examples in our photos).

The House

Ripostena B&BWe can offer you a double room in our house or a pleasantly independent apartment in the old barn. Here you won't find a sparkling swimming pool but a small lake with multi-coloured water lilies instead. Air conditioning is not provided by choice and it is really not necessary since the night breeze coming from the woods is comfortably cool. We also try to give our contribution to environmental awareness by recycling most of our waste materials with benefit for the garden as well.
