Costa D'Orsola is conveniently close to the Pontremoli exit of the autostrada which is great for travelling to and from. We based ourselves there but drove to Siena, Firenze, Lerici and other places for day trips.
The resort is very simple. It is basically a little hamlet that has been transformed into bedrooms. Each bedroom is a little self contained "house" some with a private terrace - we had the best room of all - Room D with a window overlooking the wonderful valley views together with our own private terrace.
Breakfast is a simple continental style consisting of bread, cheese, ham, jam, croissant, and various yoghurts and cereals. There is no cooked breakfast. This is served in the "bar house" which is near the sun terrace and pool area. There are outside tables too if you want to have your breakfast outside.
There is no lunch served but dinner makes up for it. A four course dinner is served every day at 8.00 pm. There is no menu - you just sit down and food appears - first a number of "antipasti" - delicious small titbits of deep fried vegetables, or stuffed peppers / tomatoes, foccaccia, home made salamis and prosciuttos to mention a few! Followed by a primo piatto of a typical regional pasta dish. After this (if you still have space in your stomach) the secondo piatto arrives - again typical regional food - we had veal, rabbit, beef among others. Then you have your dolce which can be anything from fresh fruit to delicious profiteroles in a warm chocolate sauce.
The views are magnificent, the agriturismo is very well tended.
Gianni, the manager speaks english and is very helpful together with Katia, Monica the two lovely waitresses and Piero the chef.
Thank you all for a wonderful holiday !
