Value
A traditional stone house of 1800, SARNA is the result of a careful and accurate renovation keeping the historical and original features; its unique peculiarity is the location: just few steps from the historical centre of San Quirico d'Orcia and only 100 meters from the Supermarket and the Cafeteria, is the ideal place for an "old-fashioned" holiday, combined with all modern comforts. The venue, surrounded by 5000 square meters of gardens, is divided into 8 apartments, 4 one-room apartments (max 2ad + 1 child) and 4 two-rooms apartments (max 2ad + 2 children). Each apartment has its own kitchenette, telephone, satellite TV, hairdryer, bed linen and bath towels. In addiction, our guests can enjoy the use of our swimming pool with a fully equipped solarium, private outdoor parking, the original wood-fired oven, a complimentary Wi-Fi connection, a common laundry room, a Tuscan fireplace, a gazebo with tables and last but not least, a Fitness Area with a Technogym equipped gym with water-massage shower, an outdoor heated Jacuzzi and a large and well-lit reading room. SARNA is the perfect Tuscan retreat for family and couples surrounded by the hills of Val d'Orcia!

Oh my goodness what a PERFECT place to stay. Location, cleanliness and facilities are all fantastic. I cannot fault Sarna at all. All staff are friendly and helpful. Gaia is an absolute angel. Nothing is too much trouble for her. She has a great knowledge of Tuscany and has prepared several itineraries for us all of which have been brilliant.

The atmosphere is very relaxed and the pool is perfect for an afternoon swim and sunbathe. Great for families or couples of any age

We have fallen in love with Tuscany and one of the reasons was the Sarna Residence. I just wish we had discovered it 20 years ago.

Sarna is simple yet utterly delightful. While you may not get the "wow" view of some other properties in the area, Sarna more than makes up for this with it's lovely landscaping, great pool, and walkable proximity to the town center of San Quirico. The rooms are not lavish but very comfortable and give a true Tuscan farm house feel. The staff is most pleasant and helpful. We loved all of the outdoor seating, where you could enjoy an afternoon snack or bottle of wine. Our daughter delighted in running through the grass and playing lawn games. The kitchenette was a convenient addition to the room space - my only suggestion is that lack of counter space made dishes hard to dry and thus a small side table, additional to the kitchen table, would have helped, and the room could have used some extra lights to improve visibility into the kitchenette cabinet. Otherwise, the price for the amenities is definitely unbeatable!

Third and final stop on our Tuscan adventure (see also Hotel David (Florence) and La Locanda (Radda in Chianti). Lovely building, relaxed and good value. Receptionist very helpful and pleasant. Kitchen facilities are minimal and need updating e.g. with a microwave and electric kettle even if this is at a little cost to the rustic charm which they clearly try to retain. Self catering, other than for basic meals (e.g. pasta and sauce or salad) would prove difficult although there is also a BBQ type area. Easy walk to Coop and into town where there are a limited number of shops and restaurants - we had a couple of good meals there. Plenty of sun beds although these could also do with updating. Nice environment for children with space to play and table tennis as well as the pool. Good base for exploring other parts of the Val d'Orcia. We particularly liked Pienza, Montalcino, Bagno Vignoni and Montepulciano. The mud bath at Bagno is worth a try! No aircon - just a fan. Maybe worth considering providing wifi in due course too as this is not easily available in San Quirico (useful for online check-in at least!).

Gaia, the owner, was so kind and helpful with all our market and hiking questions. Kelley who checked us in gave us the best trail advice from San Quirico d'Orcia to Bagno Vignoni...what a beautiful hike. The pool was the perfect place to relax after a long day of hiking and Sarna Residence is right on the edge of this cute hill town so we could walk in for dinner. Loved the kitchenette for making breakfast early so we could get in a hike to Pienza. Will be back.

My GF and I booked 2 nights for about 160 EUR through booking.com. There are 3 studios upstairs without balconies and slightly larger ones downstairs, which have entrances facing a driveway that isn't in use and thus serves as one common outside area (there are several).

The room description on booking.com didn't make a difference between the 2 types of studios, so it's down to chance which one you end up getting. We got one upstairs and were the only occupants on that level, which was a good thing because we got the feeling things could get a bit noisy.

The building is rustic, but in a very good way, starting with a huge medieval fireplace that greets you as you open the door to the upper floor. The ceiling in our studio was very high and studded with wooden beams, which gave the otherwise fairly dark room a lofty feel. The furniture was dark and heavy, but still nice. The kitchenette was a bit odd as it was more of a kitchen closet, but sufficient. The bathroom was fairly modern and fine. The bed was reasonably comfy and large and not at all noisy, although it looked that way.

What ended up being noisy was the ceiling fan. With 30+ Celsius and no AC we really needed it, but it started rocking back and forth a lot at higher levels - and at lower levels the draft didn't make it all the way to the beds.

In contrast, Gaia, presumably the daughter of the owners, was a big plus. She was exceptionally kind and helpful.

The pool area was nothing special, but fine. The sun/lawn chairs were clean and of good quality. The modern washing machine (5 EUR) was very welcome. The BBQ, however, was exceptional. It was like a huge medieval oven fired with wood, which was available free of charge along with some related supplies. Firing it up made me feel like I'm in the middle of a Game of Thrones episode! On a related note, I recommend visiting the nearby local butchery and buying some Chianina steaks - they are to die for!

So why only 4 stars? Well, for one the grounds are disappointing. A bit of landscaping and flowers etc. would have gone a long way. Not a biggie elsewhere, maybe, but we are talking Tuscany here. And not just Tuscany, but Val d'Orcia, the Tuscany of Tuscany. The biggest problem: Beauty is all around you, but you don't get to see it from Sarna, which is located in a developing area and surrounded by hedges and fences. If you want a view, you need to go elsewhere...

Dear Nadin and Marc, it is a real pleasure receiving your review! We are really happy that you had a short but great stay at Sarna! Yes, it’s true! We don’t have a panoramic view but it is the price to pay for being just 100mt far from the supermarket and only few steps far from the historical centre. However, we decide to preserve the original beauty of the location (farmhouse of 18th century) embellishing the property and the garden with flowers and plants. Unfortunately, after a Summer so hot (we don’t have this temperature since 2003!) not all the flowers still live, and the result is that all the Tuscan landscape shows so dry. But don’t worry, some rain will fix everything! ☺ We are happy that you appreciate your vacation with us! Hope to see you again very soon Gaia

Nice place to stay without children, we got the luck we had the whole place just for the two of us! (June 2011, warm weather, calm period everywhere in Toscany that year). We did not know that we booked a room upstairs, and without asking, we got one downstairs with terrace and the little cat ;-)

We stumbled upon this gem on a road trip through Tuscany, and stayed overnight mid-week. The residence is beautiful, and the room we stayed in was very large, with a complete kitchenette and cooking facilities. There is a pool on the grounds, as well as laundry facilities. The residence is centrally located in San Quirico, where the main part of town is only a short walk away. The lady that tended to us was very friendly and spoke ok English. The only negative I would say is that the pillows were quite uncomfortable. Apart from that, a wonderful place to stay!

We spent a very happy two weeks here at the end of May - our second stay after discovering it last Autumn. The weather was unusually cold for the time of the year but we enjoyed our stay despite it. The place is so well looked after, the owners take a real pride making sure everything is clean and tidy in the apartments and in the lovely grounds.We had a 2 room apartment on ground level and it had everything we could wish for. The property is well placed for walking into San Quirico and the supermarket and restaurants just 10 minutes away. San Quirico itself is also well placed for visiting all the surrounding hill towns, thermal baths and the beautiful scenery all around. We found some lovely walks and even managed part of the pilgrim trail that goes past the building.
Can't wait to return !!

During the summer of 2018 we had the pleasure of staying at the Sarna Residence. Even almost a year later, not a week goes by that I don’t remember this wonderful place and the memories we made while staying there. The absolute best part of Sarna Residence is Gaia. She is the owner/manager, but we did not call her by her name. We called her “Angel” because she was our angel. We had previously stayed at a terrible place in another city and “Angel’s” sunny disposition and welcoming attitude made a world of difference. The rooms have all the necessities and a big dose of the charm of Tuscany. I believe the building was once a farmhouse and a hospital. Such history! I must say I slept on a sofa bed and it was delightful. Probably the most comfortable bed our entire trip. Truly! I think it was memory foam. The kitchenette was great for breakfast and easy dinners. A very nice grocery store is a short walk. The rooms were spotlessly clean! The entire place feels very private and the grounds were quite nice. Angel was so helpful in every way. She had great suggestions about where to eat and what to see. She even helped us in a bit of a medical emergency when someone in our group had a horrible reaction to a mosquito bite. I would love to stay here again and experience Angel’s hospitality in a beautiful Tuscan setting.

SARNA Residence staff are incredibly generous and make the beauty and coziness of this place really exceptional. This is a truly special place.
