A splendid and very welcoming country hotel set above the small town of Ferentillo in the Valnerina. Our first impressions were: secure parking (remote-controlled gates), friendly and obliging staff, splendid views from the terrace, and well-equipped kitchenette in the apartment. The apartment consisted of large living room/kitchenette, bedroom and bathroom. There is a lovely swimming pool.
Breakfast was provided and was of good quality (and quantity). For our other meals we self-catered; the kitchenette came into its own.
The staff were all friendly and obliging, attending immediately to any small request we made. As we were mainly self-catering, we did not need room service every day but towels and bedlinen were changed when we requested. The swimming pool was opened and cleaned for us (perhaps earlier than Italians themselves would have used it!) and it was lovely.
The hotel is well situated for a quiet and relaxing holiday - and for a little bit of exploration. We visited the local abbey (with great murals). We went over to Spoleto in the next valley. And, most memorably, had a wonderful day going all the way up the Valnerina valley - to Monteleone, Norcia (the birthplace of St Benedict) and the Piano Grande in the Monti Sibillini.
Or, we just sat on the terrace with a bottle of wine and a book and enjoyed the view - and the peace and quiet.

Don't expect much from the room itself. It is very, very basic. But it was clean as can be and very comfortable. The hotel was very charming. Great, helpful, friendly staff. Adorable hotel! Fantastic cafe that looks RIGHT AT the gorgeous Duomo. I mean, you will NEVER get a better location in Orvieto. In fact, there is a TV commercial right now for a pharmaceutical product about a woman going to Italy. We are QUITE certain parts of it were filmed right from the windows of this hotel. So.. you can sit at this Hotel Virgilio cafe and have a glass of wine after a long day. And a cafe just down the way has live music... Just loud enough to enjoy, but not too loud. Continental breakfast in the lower level was lovely. Bottom line, I can't get this place put of my system. Not because of the room, but because it is a charming, Italian, lovely little place in an amazing location of one of my favorite towns in the entire world. I will be back to Orvieto, and I will not stay anywhere except this hotel.

Orvieto is a beautiful place to spend time and staying at Ripa Medici B&B was a great experience. We had a lovely warm welcome from Sabrina and stayed in an apartment with our own bedroom and en suite bathroom plus shared living/dining room and kitchen which worked perfectly for us. The whole place is traditional Italian, very stylish and extremely comfortable. Everything we could have needed was provided and the breakfasts lived up to all the previous reviews - they were absolutely gorgeous and different every day. This is one of the best places we have stayed in (and we have travelled a fair bit). We would definitely recommend Sabrina's B&B and stay there again ourselves.

Before we arrived we called to let the owner Alberto know when our train was scheduled to arrive at the station. He kindly picked us up and took us to Podere Sette Piagge. As soon as you arrive you are struck by the beautiful setting. The room had 2 single beds and a smaller roll away bed for my son. It was very clean and sufficient. We didn't need AC but you had a choice to use it for 10euros a day. Breakfast was healthy, simple and very good. it was served in the beautiful terrace area outside. My boys loved the swimming pool and spent most of their time swimming. The owner kindly let them feed his sheep and trout and pick fruit from the orchard. they loved it! It's about 20 mins on a very steep uphill walk to get to town but we enjoyed the hike. A car may have been helpful, but Alberto kindly gave us a ride to the station etc. Orvieto is beautiful. Thank you for a lovely stay. Many families were there with children. Definitely a great family environment.

If you want an escape this is the place. Its a bed and breakfast with only 5 rooms but each are different and unique in there own way. They all have there own personal/private terrace or balcony. Its right below the town and a walkway leads right up to it with great restaurants. You feel special here not just like any hotel. Very peaceful too.
