May, 2011, 2 weeks


My husband and I were fortunate enough to have recently stayed at Sabrina's apartment/B&B for two weeks in the beautiful hill town of Orvieto. It exceeded our expectations with amazing, quiet views of the Umbrian countryside. The apartment is very beautiful, and the charm and personal attention Sabrina showed us made our time very special.

The apartment is located on an ancient, winding street, and we quickly felt a part of the Orvieto lifestyle as we wandered and got to know the busy, hilltop town with plenty of history, restaurants and shops. My only suggestion is to book more than just one or two nights, as you will not want to leave!

Ripa Medici is a perfect accommodation for couples or families traveling together, with two beautiful bedrooms and baths. The small kitchen made trips to the market and cooking together such a treat! It really works perfectly for a weekly rental that allows you to fully experience the Umbrian lifestyle as well as being well located for day trips to Rome, Siena and Florence, via the train stop in Orvieto. I highly recommend this property for a unique, "real Italy" experience you will never forget!
