Agriturismo Sant'Anna in Camprena is a wonderful old monastery built in the 1400's. It is perfectly situated to take day trips to Pienza, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Siena, the thermal baths, La Foce and other local sightseeing highlights!
We were given a lovely and large apartment where we were able to 'cook in' on the nights when we didn't go out for dinner or go to the dining room in the monastery. We were there for 7 nights and had dinner in the dining room when it was available (4 nights). Each dinner had 4 courses and jugs of wine for 20 Euros per person...a wonderful value considering the quality of cooking...all done in their own kitchen.
The bells chimed at 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. to announce breakfast and dinner...we would then wend our way through the lemon and lime garden courtyard, complete with a fish pond, and an incredible view of the surrounding countryside, to arrive at the refectory, where we were treated to local recipes using fresh produce and homemade pasta (pici...just excellent!).
Stefano and Ornila (sp?) were superb hosts...friendly, helpful, and delightful.
We plan on returning to Tuscany again one day in the future...we will return to Sant'Anna for sure! The views from the courtyard are breathtaking!
