In the charming little town of Sansepolcro, birthplace of the unparalleled Renaissance painter Piero della Frencesca, Relais Oroscopo is located in quiet surroundings on a modern housing estate 1 km outside the historic centre.
The hotel occupies an old 19th century farm which has undergone restoration and conversion, so that today it has 10 bedrooms of which no two are alike. They are all furnished with respect for the original features and simplicity, but are in no way lacking in modern comfort. They all have en suite bathroom with hair dryer, telephone and TV.
The bedrooms in group A all have double bed and are spacious enough for an extra bed (extra cost):
The bedrooms in group B have double bed or two single beds:
The bedrooms in group C have a so called "French bed", which in size can be compared to a small double bed. The Italians jokingly call it a bed for couples in love, but being 140 cm wide, it should be able to accommodate less passionate couples as well…
The hotel is widely praised in all the leading Italian hotel guides (and several foreign ones), and so is the restaurant. Traditional Tuscan dishes are served here, but not without a good injection of the refinement of modern cuisine. You will not leave the table thirsty either; the wine list is comprehensive and has a good selection of some of Italy's finest wines. If you look hard there are good buys to be made and rare bottles to be tried.
The price includes breakfast.
