Exteriors

As well as converting their own lovely home, which they share with their adult son Duccio and a small family of two friendly dogs, the owners Margie and Alex decided also to put a good deal of their artistry and creativity into the creation of very comfortable and attractive apartments where charme and efficiency are combined.

Swimming Pool

In the gardens of La Ripa, rustic wooden steps lead down to the kidney shaped pool.
Beatiful in itself, it is made even more so by its gorgeous setting, nestling on a grassy slope with vines and umbrella pines above and a necklace of mature woods below.
Situated at the side of the pool there is an extensive lovely paved area ideal for relaxing and sunbathing. The farmhouse offers sunbeds with umbrellas for their guests to enjoy while using the pool.
