Buon Riposo lies in the heart of the Val dOrcia, now the most sought-after and the most photographed site in Tuscany (The English Patient landscapes and the Under the Tuscan Suns cover picture just to name the most popular).
This valley was renowned since the end of the first millennium for being an important stage on the Via Francigena, the great medieval road from France to Rome that led pilgrims to the heart of Christianity. More than 20 castles and rest houses (ospedali) crowned the valley bordering the road. One of them, named Buonriposo (good rest), has become a vacation house for lovers of Val dOrcia.
Rooms with beamed ceilings are well sized and opened to the most exciting views of clay hills, backed wheat fields, and gorse thickets, clay hillocks, and cypress trees. The decor of the house is very attractive. With the use of natural fabrics, antiques and whimsical pieces and touches, the owners have created beautiful and tasteful surroundings both pleasing to the eye and comfortable.
