Overlooking the Val di Chiana valley, Sabryna sits slightly back from the country road that connects the wine capital of Montepulciano to the healing spas of Chianciano Terme. Both towns are within a five minute drive and two restaurants are within walking distance.
A short 100 yard path leads to the owner's B&B, open May to October, and this offers many advantages! Sabryna's guests are welcome to use the hotel's pool where cocktails and a bar menu are served all day. Reservations may be made for the hotel's breakfast buffet or family style dinners in the restaurant. Numerous Parker guests who have stayed at Sabryna declare the hotel's restaurant as the best meal and value they experienced in all of Tuscany. A second, on-site dining option is the small, trendy bistro and wine bar just down the hill from Sabryna.
After a fun-filled day of sightseeing, being able to walk to two dining venues and not worry about designated drivers is an added bonus. Sabryna offers the services of a hotel with the privacy and spaciousness afforded by home rental.
Very reasonably priced and comfortable, Sabryna spans the entire top floor of a duplex home blessed with an elevator and numerous large windows letting in an abundance of natural light. The bedrooms are air conditioned and each has its own bathroom. Gleaming marble floors lead to stone arched doorways and fireplaces in both the living and dining rooms. From these rooms, doors open to a furnished balcony.
The friendly owners live on the ground floor and along with running the B&B, they produce highly rated Vino Nobile di Montepulciano wines and olive oil. Guests can arrange for an on-site sampling of their wines which are available for purchase and can be shipped back home.
Sabryna may be rented at a reduced rate for 4 guests. At this price, a dividing door is locked and one half of the apartment is available. Guests receive a combined living and dining room, galley kitchen, two bedrooms with two bathrooms (labeled 1 and 2 in the photo gallery) and half of the furnished balcony. It is possible the closed off section may be occupied by other guests who have use of their portion of the balcony; an iron gate divides the balcony space.
Sabryna commands a very central location for appreciating the many alluring sites that southern Tuscany has to offer. Just over half a mile away is the tiny village of San Albino with a restaurant and a good pastry shop. A five minute drive leads to Montepulciano with world class wines, more dining options and a Thursday morning open air market. From Montepulciano, the route SP146, one of the most scenic drives through the valley leads in 15 minutes to Pienza, known for its beauty, pecorino cheese and appearance in the movie, The English Patient. Continuing in this direction are the charming villages of San Quirico d'Orcia and Bagno Vignoni, with an ancient Roman bath.
A train station in Chiusi, 25 minutes away, allows for service into Rome or Florence. Montalcino's Brunello wines, Cortona's antique shops or the shores of Lake Trasimeno are within 40 minute drives; Siena, Perugia or Orvieto: 60; Florence, Assisi or Chianti: 90 and Rome in two hours.
A tourist tax collected by the town of Montepulciano is paid separately on the first seven nights. Children under age 12 are exempt.
