“Perfect Tuscan experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

My husband and I stayed at Sant'Anna last month. Oh my... words just can't describe this beautiful place. To stay in such an old monastery was marvellous. We had a comfortable room outside the main building, which was beautifully private - felt like a villa with the view over we had. Breakfast was great. Sitting in the immaculate garden drinking their wine and watching the sunset is one of my favourite memories of Italy. And the dinners are an absolute must! Exploring the countryside (based on Ornella's recommendations) made it a perfect Tuscan experience. We stayed 3 nights - we could have stayed a lot longer.

We stayed 2 nights at the monestary, and it was fantastic from start to finish. Ornella gave us such a wonderfully enthusiastic, helpful, and warm welcome, from the start and all during our stay. We were there off-season so we benefited by feeling that we were almost alone most of the times, enjoying the beautiful garden, the stunning view, wine at sunset (which Ornella brought us), walks around the quiet grounds, and listening to the church bell ring us awake in the morning. We were some of the other rooms, some with amazing century-old frescos, the old kitchen, and the bedroom upstairs in the main building used in The English Patient movie, etc. We had 2 days of sun, 1 of rain, and it was beautiful in all weather. Breakfast was delicious and filling, and served at long tables. Our stay here was one of highlights of our 3-week trip to Italy. We will, without question, return again some day. Mille grazie, Ornella!!

Room Tip: We stayed in Apartment A which was wonderful (but I assume that the apartments are bigger than the r...

It was our best experience in Tuscany. A lovely place, marvellous sigthseeing, warm reception, all you can expect of a cosy place in the middle of the Tuscan fields. Ornella was a wonderful host and made as feel at home, given us excellent advice about where to go in the neighborhood. A must go place - fabulous.

At the end of July, by the way a very good season to see the Val d’Orcia, we spent 4 nights at this delightful Agriturismo.
Ornella and Stefano are very good hosts. The breakfast with homemade jams , joghurts and very nice croissants is a good start for the day.
The dinners are absolutely amazing.
We got fanstastic suggestions where to spend the days.
So we went to the most beautiful and interesting villages around Pienza.
Pienza itself is worth to spend there almost a day.
We highly recommend Sant’Anna in Camprena. It is a fabulous historical building with a lovely garden, stunning view and relaxing atmosphere.
We will come again .

We drove from Marbella to Italy - 2 days on a Grimaldi ferry (Barcelona- Civitavecchia) and everyone needs solace! And what solace. I feel privileged to have had such an experience. We painted there - for 7 days - in the extraordinary gardens and in a huge studio/barn with beautiful beams and stunning ambience. The rooms are contemplative and I couldn't wait to wake every morning to tread the stone floor worn wonky in places by years of monks' feet. A perfect paradise in lots of ways and memories/emotions that will never be surpassed. Please save it for the appreciative! and many thanks to Ornella and Stefano who caretake this piece of heaven with immaculate skill and outstanding pleasance.

Room Tip: Every room is sparse, stunning and beautiful

Having travelled many parts of the world, Sant Anna quickly became one of my favourite places. The place is magical; the fact that you have no wi-fi, tv, or telephone just adds to the charm. Ornella and Stefano are amazing hosts who care about their guests comfort and the meals were the best throughout pur entire three-week stay in Italy! We'll definitely will be back!

We concur with all the positive Tripadvisor reviews about Agriturismo Sant'Anna. The serene, no-frills ambience appeals to anyone looking for a getaway respite. Who would miss electronics at this place amidst the captivating beauty of the Val d'Orcia area in Tuscany? It offers refreshment in nature, history, art, hospitality - and supremely good cuisine.

Ornella manages every aspect of the B&B and takes care of guests' requests with efficiency and good humor. Ask her anything about this region and she will share her extensive knowledge directing you to the best destinations. We liked meandering around the interior of this former monastery with its venerable old church, Sadoma frescoed refectory, vaulted ceilinged corridors and dininghalls - all giving us a tangible sense of far past times. Even the bedrooms were reminiscent of monks' quarters, although ours was comfortably modernized with a small ensuite bath. The tantalizing aromas wafting from the updated original kitchen hint at the delicious dinners prepared by Ornella and her mother. They are reasonably priced including wine and amicably served on long tables, the pretty settings well spaced for privacy. A typical Italian breakfast is presented likewise, accompanied with exceptional cappuccino.

The outside courtyard is full of lemon trees and bougainvillea - perfect for reading, painting the lush scenery or just relaxing. Paths in the surrounding natural landscape beckon walkers to go out into the countryside. It was poppy season while we were there in May and it was such a delight to see the fields ablaze with them.

Locally we explored the charming quiet village of Castelmuzio and only five minutes' drive away picturesque Pienza; made day trips to Cortona, Castiglione del Lago, Montepulciano and off-the-beaten-track Montechiello; revisited Sant'Antimo abbey (again memorable for the devotional chanting in luminous light) and toured the renown gardens of La Foce - all very pleasurable experiences.

We were always happy, though, to head back to the warm hospitality of Sant'Anna's and an interlude of leisure - looking forward to what the home cooked meal would be and watching the lovely sunset descend behind the looming hills....

Highly recommended. -

Elaine and Joe
