Experiences at Ripostena
We have carefully selected a number of experiences available in the local area, in addition to those offered right on the premises of Ripostena Country House. Discover Tuscany with the locals, sharing your great passions with them or discovering new adventures. From cooking classes to horseback riding, here is a selection of our favourite activities, including fun activities for children. To make your vacation into a true, authentic Tuscan experience!
Our two cooks, Alessia and Barbara, whom we affectionately call “Le Due Cuochine”, will be happy to contribute a truly special experience to your holiday with one of their cooking classes. Put your apron on and spend an enjoyable afternoon in the kitchen with two experienced cooks, mixing and flavouring as you learn the secrets of traditional Tuscan cuisine. As well as fun cooking and cake-making classes for children, under the name “La Zucca Magica”: the magic pumpkin! Menus, programmes and rates tailored to your needs.
We would be happy to share our passion for wine with you, introducing you to our personal selection of winemakers among the vineyards and wineries of the Chianti and Brunello districts. We can also organise a customised winery tour with our favourite guide. But if you prefer the comforts of home, we can arrange for a personal wine-tasting in your own apartment, or one of the other spaces available at Ripostena Country House.
Horse lovers and nature lovers will love horseback riding in the Montagnola Senese nature park, along the ancient Via Francigena pilgrimage route, or in discovery of the Chianti hills and the Elsa valley. A nearby equestrian centre organises guided excursions that may be customised on the basis of your needs.
Silvio, our favourite cycling guide, puts all his experience at our disposal to organise excursions for all, from families with children to bold, experienced cyclists and people who prefer a slow, meditative pace. He will guide you in discovery of San Gimignano, the age-old draw of the Via Francigena pilgrimage route, the Elsa valley and the most beautiful villages of Tuscany.
Each apartment bears witness to its history and original function, represented in its name, and is furnished simply but with great care.
