About the property

Restored and independent two bedrooms house - 4 beds

Buon Riposo is shrouded in the magnificent scenery of the harmonious Tuscany countryside - in Florence area near Montaione and San Gimignano.

Our farmhouse, a farm estate covering an area of approximately 100 hectares, blends into the harmonious scenery of the Tuscan countryside, where green hills slope down towards the horizon and woods alternate with vineyards and olive groves.

Buon Riposo weekly rentals: guests can find comfort and amenities in skilfully renovated self-contained apartment.

The apartment has its own entrance and outside area equipped with a table, umbrella and garden chairs; inside they feature a fireplace. A free internet connection, a barbecue for outdoor dining and a handy swimming pool (15x8 metres) placed on a terrace overlooking the countryside complete Buon Riposo's relaxing atmosphere.

Farm holidays in Tuscany - check availability and real-time booking - special offer and last minute.

Free internet connection ( wifi in all the property) with own notebook.

CLIMATE: Buon Riposo is the ideal place to spend a holiday in Tuscany in every period of the year. Thanks to a height of 150 meters above sea-level, the climate is not so hot even during summer holidays, thanks to the winds which come from sea. However, it is possible to have a bath in the swimming-pool of the vacation home, which is placed in the olive-grove and vineyard near the house.

SELF CATERING : Our farmhouse was made in order to satisfy all the needs of our guests and to make their holiday in Tuscany more pleasant. In the apartment there is an equipped kitchen with all the outfit you need in order to cook the typical dishes of the cuisine of Tuscany : kettle, coffee machine, fridge, freezer and electric oven.

Near the house there is a laundry with slot- washing machines, while in the garden there are some barbecues that all the guests can use in order to eat peacefully in the open.

In the apartment there are tables with flat-iron.

The apartment has its own external area equipped with table and chairs where you can relax yourself and enjoy the beautiful sunsets over the countryside of Tuscany and the view on the Chianti hills in privacy.

At your arrival you will find in the apartment as a present two bottles of wine of our vineyard.

About Cristiana Genovesi

Our names are Cristiana and Sergio and we we have three little boys: Vittorio 13, Ludovico 10 and Francesco 8. In the winter we live in Pisa and when we are not in our property Piero, Franco and Sara, living near the property, takes good care of the house and the park. Some years ago we decided to renovate the whole property and to dedicate ourselves to offer to guests the opportunity to taste the best of our region, Tuscany. We are very proud to offer our guests the possibility to live in our beloved house in Chianti’s Area and we have written a lot of suggestions with things to see, (typical plates and food, osterie and restaurants of the area, etc), which we will give you at your arrival together with the house keys! We will be very happy to welcome you at Buon Riposo! Thank you!

Cristiana Genovesi purchased this apartment in 1990

Guestbook comments from the manager

Slenders Marielle 2005-03-13, In August we visited Buon Riposo. Just one week and we were sorry to have to leave. The environment and the apartment was really beautiful and relaxing. Thank you for a great stay. My parents will visit you in 2005!

Dave Craig 2005-02-20,

Fantastic place had two brilliant weeks in August 2003 staying in il Gilcine apartment. The apartment was very clean on our arrival with some complimentary wine from its own vine yard. Swimming pool was a blessing as the temp was 47 one day. Owner spoke quite good English and can fully recommend this place. We hope to return some day.

Jo Tunnicliffe 2005-02-07,

My husband and myself stayed buon riposo August 2004, with our 2 young children my parents and nephew aged 10. The holiday was enjoyed by all and we are hoping to return again in the future. Both the grounds and apartments are relaxing and as for the wine and olive oil produced on site. Well we certainly found a taste for it. Thank you to Buon Riposo.

Great location , beautiful property, kind and helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

The property is very comfortable and we'll set up. Clean accommodation, beautiful pool and outside areas. Great place to stay and relax. The only suggestion we would have is that the home away page suggested that property has washing machine, but in fact the whole complex had laundry room and each washing required 3euroes. This is not a problem but is better to know it in advance.

I would recommend this accommodation without hesitation

Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days at Buon Riposo, and stayed in the L'Edera apartment. We had a wonderful holiday, our children loved the swimming pool, playground and chess area and we found the apartment and the surrounds absolutely beautiful and relaxing. It was also a perfect base for exploring the surrounding towns.
