“Brilliant for off-season peace and quiet.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Fattoria San Lorenzo was brilliant! Exceedingly relaxing couple of nights in an idyllic farm-side location. Helpful, knowledgable staff; beautifully maintained accommodation, pools and surrounds; Kids swam both days (in November!) and scootered around the place – including over to the working farm behind the property. Close-by Conad supermarket is very useful and has everything you need to be self-sufficient – and the ability to have you on private BBQ is a bonus. Needless to say we didn't try the restaurant. But it is true, you do need a car if you stay here!

A couple of suggestions: put anti-scrape pads on the bottom of the dining chairs to stop the noise from some inconsiderate next door neighbours travelling at night – and add a bit more lighting in the living area to make it feel a little less gloom...even when the sun is shining. Aside from these very small gripes, we would thoroughly recommend it as a great family base to explore nearby Maremma NP, Saturnia and Grosseto.

Room Tip: corner rooms would be brighter and perhaps quieter, given you only have neighbours on one side...

We have just come back from Fattoria San Lorenzo and we have got very mixed feelings about this place! The bangalows are very nice, good size accomodation, nice patio, clean, very welcoming. There were no cleaning services though and we had to empty the bins ourselves and take the rubbish away every day. We were supposed to be able to use WIFI services, but that did not work for 5 days (we stayed for 8 nights). Once it eventually started working we were told we had three hours to use and then would get charged if we used any more. One night we had no electricity for the most of the evening and the night, which also meant no hot water.
Bear in mind this place is in the middle of nowhere! There is nowhere to walk ... you MUST drive everywhere. We travelled with a small child and expacted to be able to go for long walks in beautiful surroundings. It has never happened! It took us 10 minutes to walk from our bangalow to the main road with no lights and that was the end of it.
Breakfast ....misunderstanding! It was very disappointing and well overpriced! We ordered breakfast which was supposed to be served on the patio. Once we got up in the first morning we found the basket with rolls, ham and cheese, jam, honey and nutella and two apples in it. There was also coffee and milk. We had to use plates, cups and cutlery from the bagalow and then wash them ourselves. We eventually cancelled it as we eded up going to the supermarket and buying fresh rolls, fruit and veg every morning anyway. It was very kind of them though to let us cancel it!!!! Both the gentleman and the lady at the reception were very helpfull!

There are two restaurants nearby. Fattoria San Lorenzo one was nice. The food was good but very limited choices. The other restaurant (do not remember the name) serves German beer, German food and plays German music ... in Italy .... great!!!

We will not be coming back to Fattoria San Lorenzo for obvious reasons. We will however come back to Tuscany which is beautiful!

Stayed at the Fattoria San Lorenzo in May. The accommodation was in a first floor one bedroom apartment in Le Capanne which is a short drive away from the main reception block of the complex.
The first floor apartment consisted of a large open plan sitting / dining / kitchen area with hob and micro wave, adequate crockery and cutlery. Satellite TV provided useful channels such as BBC World News and a number of movie channels. The bedroom was of a good size as was the bathroom which, it must be said, was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean.
Probably a bit remote if you don’t have a car but if you do it is ideally located being close to a huge shopping centre with Conad supermarket and also to Grossetto itself. It is also very handy for the coast, some twenty minutes drive away. Castigliagni della Pescaia in particular is well worth a visit; a sea side town that .
The management team of Isacco and Serena were very welcoming and helpful.
The pool area and gardens are immaculately maintained.
All in all we had a very relaxing week’s break at a very reasonable price. Anyone wanting a quiet holiday would do well to book Fattoria San Lorenzo.

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.
