Vacation with children

Tuscany is a paradise for a holiday with children

Going on holiday with the children is always an adventure, a precious opportunity for sharing and discovery. At Ripostena Country House, we want to make sure your family holiday in Tuscany is a truly unforgettable and relaxing experience, which is why we offer you everything you could possibly need for even the smallest children. On request, we can supply a folding cot complete with linens, a high chair, colourful plastic children’s dishes, a baby bath and a bottle steriliser. We can also provide a pushchair, subject to availability, with advance booking; and if you wish, we can prepare a toy basket for your children to have fun playing in your apartment.

We offer fun creative workshops for children: paint, recycled materials and plenty of imagination become the magical ingredients for an afternoon of fun under the guidance of our enthusiastic Arianna. Workshops may be held right at Ripostena Country House or at Arianna’s neighbouring farm, nicknamed “Zucca Magica”: the magic pumpkin!

Your children will love playing in our playground, swimming in the pool, running around the gardens and orchards, and exploring the woods around Ripostena Country House. We are entirely fenced-in, so parents need not worry about their children! The bottom of our swimming pool slopes gradually down from a minimum depth of 50 cm to a maximum of 140 cm, making it safe for even the smallest guests. And guests of all ages will enjoy our games room, with table soccer and ping-pong, and our covered bocce court. There are plenty more opportunities for leisure activities surrounded by nature in the area, including hikes of all levels of difficulty, swimming in rivers and streams, hot springs which are also appropriate for children, and adventure parks. The area’s educational farms teach children about farming, animals, and the magical world of honeybees, so they can play at being little farmers for a day.
