Can't say enough nice things about La Saracina. Every room is different and HUGE!, We were treated like kings. While out by the pool one day, the owners came out and asked if we were hungry. Soon, out came a cart, filled with a gorgeous salad, sweet melon and wine perfectly chilled in ice. The morning breakfasts were set out... More

This is the second time I have stayed here and nothing seems to have changed in the intervening years. This is a beautiful, quiet, and well kept property. The setting is magic - surrounded by undulating Tuscan hills. The sheep wearing bells give a distant tinkle and the views spectacular. The grounds are rustic but very well maintained. The smell...

La Saracina is a beautiful and intimate setting, encompassing the character and genuine feel of the ‘traditional Tuscan experience’. With sweeping views across the Val d'Orcia and to the township of Pienza, it is a stunning facility. Gabriella and Simonetta are two wonderful hosts, making you feel ever so comfortable and cultivating the experience one has in the Tuscan hills.... More

What a treat to stay at this place. It is a little bit of heaven! Set way back off the road on a cyprus tree lined drive, it is so peaceful you can hear the birds singing. It has a beautiful view of Pienza from the lovely grounds by the pool. The 2 sisters that ran the place while I... More

We stayed at La Saracina during the summer, and arrived dismayed to find no air conditioning. Of course, no A/C is typical in Tuscany, so be sure to ask specifically. In addition, the fan in our room was too high up and generated no cool air and squeaked obnoxiously. I've never been so overheated in my life. It was kind... More

We have just revisited La Saracina and it was even more wonderful than my memory. Gabriella and Simonetta are the most gorgeous and warm hosts. Our room was very spacious and beautifully appointed with so much creativity coupled with first class comforts. They advised us well on places of interest and restaurants to visit together it's handling bookings and reservations.... More

We stayed at La Saracina many times. And rule out any negative ratings ever given. It is truly magical. The location is a total bliss. The owner Simonetta is as elegant as she knows her way around. She advised us the best restaurants and locations to visit. A person would be mad or just negative to write something bad about... More

We spent 8 nights at La Saracina in May of 2012. Although Simonetta and Gabriella were gracious hosts, our room lacked in creature comforts. No TV for the entire stay (was told the "dish had been acting up"), no heat or hot water the first morning we awoke, no sitting area or anything other than the bed. Noise was a... More

We came to La Saracina on the advice of a friend. When he spoke of this place in particular, his face became animated as he described Simonetta and Gabriella and the incredible experiences he has had at this wonderful little gem. We had never even really discussed what La Saracina looked like because I trusted him so completely after listening... More
