B&B Ripa Medici Rooms with a View

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

After 10 days in Rome and Florence, spent 6 days in Orvieto and rented this apartment from Sabrina. Found it on VRBO and glad to see she has great fans on Tripadvisor, too.

The apartment is perfect. Great views and very clean. Orvieto is lovely with great shops and restaurants. For a real local experience come here! My kids took the train to Rome, I worked remotely and my wife read and relaxed. Great break before we had off to Venice and Milan.

All the great reviews are all true. Sabrina is awesome and her apartments is fantastic. If you're just 2 , book her new apartment. She took us on a tour and it is quite nice.

When I come back to Italy. I am just going to come here!

Stayed: July 2014

Our stay at B & B Ripa Medici was the ideal way to end our month-long European trip. Even before we arrived, Sabrina was very helpful with precise directions, very important since we were arriving by car. We felt like royalty in La Casa Bianca, right on the city wall with a breathtaking view of the countryside below. Breakfast was far from the typical "continental" style, consisting instead of several tasty dishes, including eggs, all served by her charming children! Our accommodations were spacious, clean, convenient and quiet. As an added bonus, the Wi-Fi was free (the big hotels where we stayed charged outrageously for it) and fast. If we are ever fortunate to visit Orvieto again, we would not hesitate to stay at Ripa Medici.

We have visited Orvieto for day trips in the past, this was our first time basing ourselves here for a few nights to kick off our vacation. We chose the perfect place! B&B Ripa Medici and Sabrina really started our vacation perfectly and made a lasting impression on us.
Sabrina is delightful to deal with. She showed us our room "Casa Bianca" overlooking the valley below. We were so impressed immediately upon arrival.
Parking is easy, just below the city. Easy to access via elevator and you are in the heart of Orvieto after parking.

For breakfast, you walk to Sabrina's home. It changes daily as everything is fresh from the market. She made the most incredible pastry filled with chocolate, cappuccino, fresh fruit, cheese, fresh bread... you will not be hungry at lunch time!
Sabrina makes you feel so welcome and provides great restaurant recommendations when asked.

Tip: Best time to ask for advice is when checking in or at breakfast. Sabrina really dedicates the time to her guests and I admire her for running a small B&B with a young family.At check in, she walks you through the apartment, the map, suggestions for dinner, lunch, itineraries. At breakfast, she is so interested to hear about your previous day/future plans.

Dinner at Trattoria Del Moro (Suggested by Sabrina) Amazing!
2nd Night: Charlie's (Pizza). great terrace

You won't regret booking this special place. We have been to Italy 9 years in a row, and this honestly is one of the best B&B's we have stayed in.
Thank you Sabrina for a special stay!

Room Tip: I am sure they are all nice, but Casa Bianca was stunning

Sabrina at Ripa Medici is the sweetest lady! The apartment we stayed in had the most amazing view and was decorated beautifully. We arrived during the 750th town festival and she made sure we knew exactly how to enjoy this special event. Her restaurant recommendation was where I enjoyed my best meal in all of Italy. Breakfast in her warm kitchen was delicious and most memorable. We even got to sing happy birthday to her 10 year old daughter. The best value in all of our 2 week trip. You will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: We loved the nearly decorated apartment that was all white!

We stayed in this wonderful B and B for 3 nights and loved every minute. We had a room along the wall of the city with a stunning view. Sharing the common area with the other bedroom occupants is completely not an issue, we were never disturbed by this. Sabrina is a wonderful, charismatic hostess and her family is charming as well. This B and B is in an excellent location, at the quiet edge of a beautiful hilltown (our favorite in the area), one hour by train to Rome. Sabrina was extremely helpful, recommending close restaurants and even booking a haircut for my husband! Her breakfast was home cooked and delicious. You can easily walk to the other side of town (where the funicular takes you down to the train station) or ride on the bus very close to the room. Do not hesitate to stay here, you will have a wonderful experience!

Room Tip: Go to the family owned restaurant on the corner of the B and B street(Sabrina will give you the name...

Staying at B&B Ripa Medici actually ended up being our favorite experience in Orvieto. We had the pleasure of staying in the gorgeous ground-floor apartment. This was, by far, the nicest room my wife and I stayed in all of Italy. It has a beautifully decorated modern interior, but step outside the front door and you find yourself standing on the equally stunning rustic city wall high above the emerald green valley below. It’s an immaculate, bright, white, private, romantic apartment with gorgeous views just outside the front door. The kitchen was well stocked and the bathroom was spacious, clean, and bright. It had everything the average person could need for a comfortable stay.

As if the room wasn't amazing enough, Sabrina and her family had the most wonderful hospitality of anyone we encountered in Italy. She and her husband were an absolute pleasure to talk to. They speak excellent English and conversation was easy. We had a lot of fun talking to Sabrina about life in Italy and comparing it to life back home.

My wife and I arrived at the train station late in the evening. Yet, Sabrina and her husband were kind enough to go out of their way to personally pick us up and drive us to the front door of the apartment. On check out day they let us keep our luggage in their home while we enjoyed Orvieto one last time. They even offered to drive us back to the station as we were leaving to make sure we weren’t late for our train. This was incredibly nice of them considering that they have a family to take care of and very busy lives of their own.

I would not hesitate to stay here again the next time I'm in Orvieto. We hope to see Sabrina and her family again someday!

EDIT: I could not unrate "Swimming Pool" and "Fitness Center" on the TripAdvisor ratings. Neither of these exist at the property.

We stayed in what I believe is Sabrina's newest apartment, right on the Orvieto wall. It was perfectly appointed with stunning views and maximum privacy. Sabrina is most helpful and serves a delightful breakfast. This was definitely a highlight of our honeymoon and I can't recommend it (or Orvieto in general) more highly.

Room Tip: The apartment along the wall is just perfect. Its still only a minute walk to the main address but...
