La Saracina is a serene, beautiful oasis a short drive from Pienza, Montepulciano, and Montefollonico. We give it our very highest and most enthusiastic recommendation.

The rustic and tasteful decor, magnificent setting, and spacious room all contributed to a most pleasurable 6 night stay. The sumptuous and delicious breakfasts are unmatched and absolutely not to be missed.

Gabriella's charm, warmth and helpful suggestions made our stay a delight. We suggest you put away your guidebooks and accept her restaurant recommendations. All of our meals were terrific. Gabriella will gladly make the reservations.

La Saracina was a highlight of our three week visit to Italy and we most definitely shall stay there again next year and hopefully many years into the future.

I feel lucky I had the opportunity to stay at La Saracina, my only wish is that we could have stayed longer. It is such a nice little hotel perched on the country side with sheep grazing on the hillside, we could actually hear them while having breakfast. Gabriella is one of the two sisters who owns the hotel, and was such a gracious hostess during our one night stay. She made sure we were well taken care of, and she makes the most incredible organic breakfast. She even brought us a tray of snacks and two glasses of wine to our room upon arrival, which was very enjoyable after a long day of driving. Gabriella was, without a doubt, the nicest person we met in all of Italy.

There were so many nice touches around the estate. The little garden, the grape vines, the olive trees, the pool with lounge chairs, we enjoyed just walking around the property and gazing at the magnificent views of Montipullciano and the surrounding countryside. It is so beautiful and everything was in bloom at the time.

The room was incredible, I would highly suggest reserving one of the suites, they are huge and ornately decorated, everything seemed to be in the right place. It's the small things which make it so impressive, the old wooden dresser, the bedding, candles scattered throughout, a wooden fireplace ready to be lit, old exposed wooden beams, and a nice little outdoor patio with a table and chairs. It is all very eccentric. We started a fire at night and it greatly enhanced the cozy and warm ambiance.

I can't say enough about Gabriella and the property itself. We live in Texas, and to find such a gem, outside of little Pienza (just a short 10 min drive away), is the reason we felt very lucky to experience it. We stay at many bed and breakfast type places in the hill country of Texas, but La Saracina was completely on another level. We truly hope to find our way back one day so we can stay longer.

In short, I travel all around the world for work and pleasure, and have never found a place quite like this. The air is crisp and refreshing, the smell of flowers are entrancing, and the service is so welcoming that we felt like a part of their family. I would give it 10 stars if I could. I highly recommend that you don't pass it up, and that you too can experience this enchanting place as well.

Such a charming guesthouse in the heart of Tuscany. The host, Gabriella, will welcome you and take you through every corner of the property. Everything was so nice and tasteful: room furniture, cute spots in the garden and of course highlight of our stay is the breakfast: beautiful room (verriere -glass walls) with views on the garden, such an elegant buffet with homemade everything: bread, cakes, croissant..
Also, Gabriella gave us great recommendations when it comes to places to visit and restaurants.

My husband and I keep going back to La Saracina. It is so charming and peaceful and Gabriella and Simonetta make sure your stay is pleasant. Anything you want or need is taken care of. On our visits Simonetta and Gabriella have made recommendations and reservations at the most excellent nearby restaurants. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. We had a wood burning fireplace and canopy bed. It was gorgeous and relaxing. Grounds are amazing. On our last trip we were amazed by Gabriella's English. She has come a long way since our first visit. Thank you Gabriella for making our visit so exceptional. We look forward to our return

Room Tip: Not many to choose from, but, all are well furnished and comfortable.
