“I'll always go back.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

One year ago today, I was woken up by the bells at Sant'Anna in Camprena, the most wonderful place in Tuscany. My husband and I spent our birthdays here, having discovered the monastery in our favorite movie, The English Patient. Every aspect of our stay far exceeded any of our expectations: the bells, the daily breakfast set up, adorable room, authentic Tuscan cuisine, tour of the grounds, and most of all our host Ornella. She even set up a surprise birthday Prosecco and olive plate for us on our last night (Solo Prosecco?), and we spent the whole night so happily looking at the stars and the countryside we forgot to eat. In honor of Ornella, we plan to spend tonight outside with a bottle of Prosecco and our pictures from Sant' Anna.

We got married in Sant'Anna, and every single one of our guests wants to come back. No wonder : breathtaking landscapes, insipiring simplicity, a concentrate of Tuscany's beauty, and on top of that the warmness of Ornella and Stefano's team... What can we say about Sant'Anna that would not be too much "over the top" ? Believe us, my husband and I have travelled for work all around the world, and there is no such place like Sant'Anna.
If you are looking for a place that is sober, simple, right in the heart of Tuscany and yet amazingly beautiful, that's it.

Room Tip: Of course, the "English patient" room is just magnificient (for those who do not mind shar...

We stayed 3 nights at the monastery this month and loved every minute of it. Ornella is a wonderful host and her staff are very friendly. If you have the opportunity to have dinner there, do it! The best gnocchi we've ever had were made by Ornella's mother.

Our room, #34, was simple and clean. We weren't aware there wasn't full room service (fixing bed, taking dirty dishes, etc.) but it wasn't a problem since we were there for only 3 nights. Pienza is a great little town and in a perfect spot for visiting other towns. Look forward to going back some day!

Room Tip: We arrived on a Sunday and weren't aware we couldn't eat there that night so it was back in...

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 .
