“Holiday in May”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Having spent time reading reviews prior to going, we thought it necessary to write this review for the people who are unsure or would like to know a little more. We flew to Pisa, hired a car & drove to Grosseto. The place was easy to find, please note that the reception isn't signposted from the main road, but is located near to the Casa Livia restaurant, so took us a little longer to work out. The staff were fantastic, telling us virtually everything we needed to know. Little things were missed out, like breakfast...we assumed we had booked breakfast that this would arrive every day, however the first day you get the standard croissants, rolls & coffee, with a sheet you have to fill in, to let them know what you would like after that. We was happy with what we had, so didn't fill the sheet in, and ended up with no brekkie the next day. When asked they would of sorted breakfast out for us that morning. So more lack of communication/confusion on both sides.
We stayed in the Double Deluxe 2 pax apartment, which I have to say, was fantastico. Nice, clean, modern, all ammenities, could have not asked or hoped for more. 2 bedrooms with 2 single beds in each, an upstairs bathroom with shower, as well as a downstairs bathroom with shower. The pool was unheated, which for us brits, meant it was freezing in May, still nice to relax around tho.
We went to the restaurant twice, the staff were very welcoming, & the food, was very nice. Not many choices as you would get from English restaurants but food was very nice all the same. From where we was staying, it was approx a mile along a straight road, but was nice to walk it, & therefore we both could enjoy a bottle of wine.
Bikes are available, but only for use on site. Well, you can go off site, however they recommend you don't for your safety. If you do, you have to sign a disclaimer, as they are responsible otherwise.
Generally, we would say this is a very good place to stay. We would definately stay here again. It caters for all, families, couples, & friends. It is a good base to visit southern Tuscany.

we stayed here on april 2013 while driving from Rome to Pisa, clean and tidy, great room, great sense for privacy and the location is a must see, the only dowsize is that you have to go out the room to get some wifi signal, but it's a great experience overall

We stayed overnight while driving from Florence to Sorrento and after seen the place and tasting the food, we regretted not staying there more time. The rooms are very comfortable, the pool and pool area very nice, it is inside a farm or ranch of about 400 hectares and the restaurant is wonderful.

We spent a great time at Casa Livia. The house was nicely furnished and the manager did everything to help us with whatever we needed. The weather was still warm so our children could enjoy the beautiful pool which was still open. We also appreciated the breakfast service - each morning, we found fresh rolls and croissants on our terrace. We would definitely recommend Fattoria San Lorenzo for a stay at this time of the year.

We have been in San Lorenzo for about the 7th time this year, which says a lot about our passion for this place. The entire complex is well maintained and permanently refurbished. The reception is not only very friendly and customer focussed but also helpful in many respect. Every year we see some not only small changes in the furniture or equipment of the apartment. The kitchen is well equipped and offers sufficient devices even for quite comprehensive cooking. The place is well located in a distance of about 10km from a nice beach. Also, it is a good starting point for city tours to Roma, Sienna, Firenze or Pisa. Besides, Grosseto is a charming small town nearby. The restaurant at the site has a new chef since this season and has reached a very adavanced level - we enjoyed it much! For sure: we will be back next year.

We spent a great week at Fattoria San Lorenzo last summer. The people from reception are very kind and extremely helpful. Not only to give advice on restaurants or places to visit, they did a great job sorting out a doctor's visit one day our daughter was sick and kept checking if we were OK. They also attendeed every request to fix little things (like changing a light bulb or checking on a malfunctioning dishwasher) very quickly and properly. This is great when you're with kids and want a restful holiday.
The apartments are very comfortable, having air conditioning in Italian summers is a plus, beds were good and large (which is not a standard in Southern Europe) and the kitchen is well equipped. Most apartments have a barbecue as well. The whole property is very beautiful, the swimming pool is great, large enough for all the guests and surrounded by green and plenty of shadow when the Tuscan sun gets just too much. Even in high season, you have a fairly quiet stay, as the separate terraces allow for some little privacy, and the guests (families) were nice and proper too, a mix of Italian, French, German and Dutch tourists.
There's a shopping mall 2' away by car, with an excellent supermarket and other facilities (also to get yummy gelati!), a welcome break to do your groceries in a cool place while it's very hot outside. We had dinner at the Fattoria one night and it was great too, but what was really fantastic: the fresh bread service every morning at your door.
The beach is about 10km away. We went one day, but it was very crowdy, so we decided to enjoy the swimming pool the rest of the days. There's a lot to do and lovely towns to visit in the area, like Montepescali (try Osteria Pizzeria Sotto Le logge!). Great to have a car to see all these places, although a more suitable plan for other seasons: summer temperatures are just too high to do much more than chilling by the swimming pool or under the trees shadow.
Only thing to keep in mind: if your apartment is close to the entrance, you may hear the road traffic closeby, which is a pitty if you're looking for a totally quiet, rural vacation. Otherwise, an excellent accommodation to discover the Maremma region.

Room Tip: Almost all apartments have their own terrace, except for a few (the older ones). On the other hand...

My colleague and I stayed in April 2012 in this very nice accommodation. Separate bedrooms and shared living, tv-room and kitchen. Within ten meters in front a lovely swimming pool to cool down when it is hot. We were there for a school exchange and had a quiet stay because it was early in season. Which means that the evenings and night were cold. Mind the extra cost you must pay for that. We didn't have to pay as a compensation for the problems with the air-conditioning. They were not complete season ready. When the appartments are fully booked it can be a bit noisily. Dust from the ceiling can keep you busy cleanig now and then.
The staff was very helpful. We had to work in the city of Grosseto high school and biked everyday ten minutes. In our spare time we biked into the countryside and to the coastal environment and nice villages. You need your own transport, don’t rely on public transport on this spot. I hope to come back next April.

Room Tip: Rooms on the east/ southside in colder periods like April. In hot summer I can imagine you choose...
