“Another magical stay in Orvieto!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

This was our third multi-night stay in Orvieto and our second with Sabrina at her wonderful B&B. It would have been our third but we were tardy in booking... It was, once again, a magical stay. The views from the bedrooms are spectacular, the rooms spotless and very quiet at night! Breakfast is now served with Sabrina at her home. It is such a treat to share our experiences with her, her children and the other B&B guests. Sabrina is a powerhouse of energy and is always amenable to help with taxis, reservations and suggestions. We have never been steered wrong with her suggestions for restaurants or sites to see in and around Orvieto. Our only issue is that we need more time to sample the vast gastronomic delights available in the small family-owned trattoria and osteria found throughout the village. Orvieto is always going to be on our agenda for Italy and Sabrina's Ripa Medici B&B will always ne our first choice for a restful place to stay, away from the larger cities of Italy. Thanks Sabrina!!

Room Tip: Always email Sabrina directly. She is prompt to reply and will help with information as required.

My friend and I spent a couple of days with Sabrina at the apartment. What a beautiful location and a charming apartment which looks out over the Umbrian countryside and really well situated in Orvieto. A chance to have the real experience of living in a walled town. Sabrina is charming, warm and an excellent host. We highly recommend Ripa Medici to anyone wanting an exquisite stay in Orvieto.

My husband and I spent a relaxing week in Orvieto in July with our two preschool aged children. Upon our arrival in Orvieto we were unexpectedly greeted by our hostess, Sabrina, as we were exiting the train station and she drove us all up to the town and the apartment. As this act of kindness would suggest, she is a warm and welcoming hostess. During our stay, Sabrina gave us many helpful tips for local restaurants, shopping and day tripping during our stay. She and her husband and children live in the building across the street and she was extremely responsive to any of our inquiries.

The apartment was as described - well maintained, meticulously clean and conveniently located in the heart of Orvieto. It is within walking distance to all of the major sites in the city. As others have noted, the views of the countryside from the apartment are amazing.

The entire apartment consists of two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a living room with dining area and sofa bed and well equipped kitchen. We rented only part of the apartment - one bedroom w/ ensuite bathroom, living room and kitchen. We used the kitchen on a regular basis for light meals and it is well equipped. The apartment was cleaned daily. The second bedroom, which is accessed through same entrance to apt but completely self-contained, was rented to other guests during our stay as a traditional B&b experience. Since we had use of the kitchen, we never took breakfast at Sabrina's home which is located in the building across the street. For families with older children, such as teenagers, it may be recommended to rent the entire apartment (ie both bedrooms) for a more comfortable stay.

We found Orvieto to be a wonderful destination if you are traveling with young children. It is a nice break from the busy and frenetic streets of Rome and is very safe with a number of pedestrian-only areas.

We hope to be able to return again to this gem of a city and would definitely stay at the B&b Ripa Medici again.

All the other reviewers are spot on: this is a fantastic place to stay in Orvieto. The peaceful accommodation is very well-located, looking out on the lovely Umbrian landscape and is only a short stroll from the town centre and, of course, the Duomo. The rooms are beautifully decorated and tastefully furnished. It is very well-equipped (including air con.) But, most of all, the host, Sabrina, is one of the most welcoming, helpful, engaging and responsive people we have ever encountered. She is a true ambassador for Italy and the tourist trade; she should receive an award for services to tourism!

Supported by her friendly husband Federico, Sabrina makes it possible for you to immerse yourself in her family life in Orvieto and to mingle with the cosmopolitan group of people who come to stay at her upmarket B and B. As so many other reviewers have repeated, breakfast at Ripa Medici is an amazing experience. The range of products on offer is excellent; and, if there is something you don`t see, but would like, Sabrina will attend to it! Pride of place on the breakfast table has to go to the cakes. Every day, Sabrina bakes one or more cakes (as well as bread), and they are all superb. She truly is the Queen of Tarts!

I think that, essentially, what you get when you stay at Ripa Medici - apart from lovely clean accommodation (Thanks, Katia) - is a very `personalized` experience of spending time in Orvieto. Sabrina and her husband can and do help with restaurant recommendations, shopping advice, visits to sites, etc. So, in many ways, the experience is the opposite of what it can often be when you stay in many efficient but soulless hotels.

We stayed at Ripa Medici for one week - and it was one of the best vacation experiences we have ever had.

My husband and I stayed at Sabrina's lovely apartment for 6 nights--the view is stunning and the apartment is charming --spacious, comfortable, clean, and very nicely furnished. It was a very short walk down to the little town and conveniently located in terms of shops, restaurants, and the magnificent Duomo. Sabrina was a charming and attentive hostess and made us a delicious breakfast the last morning when we moved to stay in the en-suite B and B. We definitely hope to return next year --we had a wonderful stay and Orvieto was a highlight in our visit to Italy. I would highly recommend Ripa Medici to friends and family!

Stayed here just last week. We were actually booked in another B&B and when we arrived in Orvieto, found out that we had been bumped! (according to the owner an email had been sent, an email I yet to receive; you could imagine my annoyance after a long day of travel). In any event, I was told a lady by the name of Sabrina would come pick us up and we had now been placed in the B&B Ripa Medici....was not happy.

Turned out to be a great experience! The room was perfect and the hostess was warm, funny and could cook a mean egg! The breakfast was one of the best I had in my time in Italy. Sabrina kept us laughing and the view from room was stunning.

Grazie mille per tutto Sabrina!

It's truly possible to feel at home away from home in this lovely apartment. My wife and I stayed in Sabrina's apartment for 2 weeks in November, 2012 and returned for another 3 weeks in May, 2013. I think that amounts to a tremendous vote of confidence in the apartment and in a warm attentive hostess who has now become our friend. The view is everything it's reputed to be and the location is perfect for exploring Orvieto, which is now "our town" in Italy. Sabrina also rents the two rooms as a B&B but we rented the full apartment so we could make full use of the kitchenette and invite guests to join us. If you drive to Orvieto, Sabrina provides free parking less than 5 minutes away, which is a significant plus considering the parking situation in most of Italy's Hill Towns. In our case, we took the train from Rome and reached Orvieto in about an hour and a quarter. The funicolare which takes you up to the town is just a few steps from the train station. From there, a shuttle bus takes you to the center of town, about 2 blocks from RipaMedici. Orvieto is the perfect place for a relaxing vacation in a town rich in history and culture and RipaMedici is the perfect place to stay in Orvieto.
