“Such a lovely week in Tuscany!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

We want to recommend Podere dell´Orso, Paola and Mimmo have got so much hospitality and kindness! The rooms are in old fashion romantic style, nice and clean. You get a fantastic breakfast with homebaked cake every morning! We had three wonderful eveningmeals too and Paola is very good at cooking ! It´s peaceful and you sleep very well in kingsize beds, perfect for a bad back! Podere dell ´Orso is situated perfect for daily tours, we were in Firenze 40 minutes, Livorno 20 minutes, Lucca, Volterra, San Gimignano and Pisa. We`ll come back !

Many thanks to Paola and Mimmo for our unforgettable stay in Podere dell'Orso! Really calm and unique place, rooms equipped with all you may need, nice and very kind people all over the region, best food and wine experience, close to all Tuscany sights and sandy beaches, but away from noisy and crowdy places. I highly recommend to all who'd like to run away from city, relax and charge mind for a good ideas. We'd definitely come back in the nearest future!

Room Tip: All rooms are great, but especially one with Tuscany hills view!

Great and warm welcome: we had a possibility to choose a room, because we were the first guests, housewife prepared coffee and apple cake for us. Rooms were very nice, furnished by old typical Tuscany furnitures and had a air-condition. There was lovely silence. Cicadas was heart only during the day. Housewife helped us with our trips and always offered us very good restaurant and beach also. There was lovely nature around the house, lot of vineyards and olive trees, and beautiful villages close to farmhouse. It was close to cities like Livorno, Pisa, Lucca and close to sea. We stayed there 5 nights and it was the greatest holiday. Thanks :-)

It was such a different and fascinating adventure for us, the two couples, to travel to the "very heart" of Toscana... Podere dell'Orso is such a dreamy and ancient place, just like in the romantic films... The owners Paola and her husband, are probably the nicest hotel owners in all Italy, very very lovely people. The hotel has three rooms, which are all decorated very romantically and cozy. The beds, wardrobes, all accessories are so nice... The room we have stayed has the best Tuscan view I guess. The place overall, is a peaceful part of the worls, away from all noise and daily chaos. The only sound you hear is the mocking of the birds in the morning.
Paola is a great hostess, always ready to help. I'm sorry that we had such a short stay and did not have the chance to taste Paola's meals and wine.
We thank them a lot! It was such a great stay...

Room Tip: Ask Paola the room with the best view. That is the one on the right hand side at the end of the corr...

We had a very nice stay, beautiful rooms and we had a delicious dinner.
This is really a place you should not miss. Great hosts with love for food and hospitality.
The location is a little isolated but we loved it

Our winery is near the Podere dell?orso and sometimes it has happened that we book a stay for our guests. The Podere dell'Orso is in Lorenzana, and it has a strategic position among Pisa, Livorno and Lucca, in the countryside.
Paola and his husband are very kind and the place is amazing, in a old Tuscan Casale you have cosy bedrooms, perfectly in-style furnished with fine linen. The breakfasts are huge and genuine, Paola cooks pies and cakes for your sweet awakening and she is a brilliant "chef" for your lunch or dinner, focusing on organic and genuine products from our Land. I can seggest this place for sure!

The setting is typical Tuscan countryside, very quiet and peaceful, there are plenty of tables to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful view. The room (triple plus cot) was cosy and decorated in country style, no aircon so was very warm at night (august).

The food was excellent, evening meal had a choice of 3 starters and mains, plus kids dishes. Definately recommend the wild boar pappardelle. Breakfast consisted of a selection of freshly baked cakes, bread and jam. The apple and lemon cake (still warm from the oven) was to die for.
