About the property

Country Hotel

Costa d'Orsola Country Hotel is a captivating typical little hamlet, situated in Lunigiana's countryside, in the North of Tuscany.

A group of old stone farmhouses, built on the top of a hill, just outside the town of Pontremoli, a place from which you can enjoy a marvellous view of the valley, the Apennines and of the Apuanian Alps.

Lunigiana

Lunigiana is characterized by many interesting old town centres, medieval villages, churches and castles and also by a charming surrounding landscape with a varied rural and cultural tradition that can be summarized with some important historical and geographic stages.

Lunigiana is the land of the Malaspina family that from the XI century established their power on the Luni Committee, while the Apennines is the place where they built an effective fortification system (still visible today and partially available for visits) where the exile Dante was lodged, who probably was inspired by these landscapes for some descriptions reported on the Divina Commedia.

From the Apennines to the sea, following the Francigean Way, you can discover many traces, landscapes and traditions of the Middle Ages.

Pontremoli

Northern gate of Lunigiana and typical medieval town, was developed by the union of many houses around its castle. The Piagnaro Castle is situated on the top of a hill above the Cisa main road, it has recently been totally restored and hosts the Museum of the Statue Stele. The castle and the characteristic houses of the town are positioned in such a way that they seem to defend the historical centre, which is closed off on the north side by Porta Parma and on the south side by the confluence of the two rivers Magra and Verde. The borough hosts numerous monuments such as the Cathedral of S. Maria del Popolo (seventeenth century) with its baroque interior, the bell-tower Campanone, the tower of the old city walls which devided Guelphs and Ghibellines, the Church of S. Colombano and the Church of S. Pietro with its Labyrinth of the Pilgrim sculpture, the Church of SS. Annunziata, built in 1471. The Caveau del Teatro is at the centre of this small pearl of Lunigiana, facing the baroque work-of-art of the Church of Nostra Donna and of the Teatro della Rosa, one of the first theatres in Italy recently restored and full of rich baroque interiors. The town of Pontremoli hosts the Bancarella Prize, a famous literary prize held once a year on the third Sunday of July.

Séjour inoubliable

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes arrivés en famille, l'endroit est paradisiaque, le propriétaire très disponible; nous avons pris demi pension; après des balades inoubliables dans les Cinque Terres, le repas du soir c'était un moment fort, de découverte de la cuisine italienne, un vrai régal : avec des anti-pasti variés, le plat de pâtes toujours différent, la viande très bien cuisinée pour finir avec un délicieux dessert à l'italienne ! La propriétée est très bien entretenue, les chambres propres avec beaucoup de charme. C'est un endroit à revenir!
