Staying at The Lazy Olive in the hills of Tuscany is a special experience. Podere Finerri is located on a dirt road and just when you think the road leads nowhere, the farm looms up. A dog dances cheerfully towards you, children play by the pool, a guest sits barefoot in the grass with a glass of wine. You will be rewarded with a breathtaking view of the Tuscan landscape. It was this magnificent view that seduced the architect Daniela and her husband Malcolm to restore the 18th century farmhouse.
On the farm you can take cooking lessons from Malcolm, go on a truffle hunt, taste amazing wines, make your own olive oil, go to thermal baths, enjoy hot air ballooning, play sports and much more.
All accommodations in our unique collection meet our high standards in quality, comfort, style and setting. We visit every place, meet the owners and explore the area, so we are sure that you will have a great holiday here!
