Jorge's place is really special. There were cows, donkeys, and a truly amazing dog named Diego. Diego has a huge face and is the gentlest creature you'll ever know.
I chose this place because I wanted to go somewhere quiet outside of Florence. I had no idea where, so I picked a town based on a phenomenal host on Airbnb. Jorge did not let me down. He picked me up from the train station, showed me around, and introduced me to his brother, Julio. I was alone when I arrived, so Julio and I hung out for a while that evening (Julio knows more English than Jorge). He bought me dinner and showed me around a neighboring town by car. The next day, Julio brought me to the bike store so I could rent a bike. I highly recommend renting a bike if you want to see more of Borgo San Lorenzo. They were 17 euros per day (quite fair when I think what I would've spent to rent a car).
One question I had when I was looking in the reviews is whether or not the distance between the train station and the house is walkable. It absolutely is walkable. It takes about an hour, you're definitely covering some ground, maybe 4 km or 2-ish miles? But It's a beautiful walk. I had a truly wonderful bike ride back from town at sunset to the house one night.
Jorge and Julio made me a lovely breakfast each morning (kinda American style because I'm used to eating more for breakfast).
Hm, one last thing: if you're in town in BSL, there's a beautiful meat/sandwich/wine shop in the plaza. There are a lot of people outside and my sister and I got a BEAUTIFUL sandwich and elegant glass of wine for 6 euros. ~just a tip if you visit~
Thank you so much Jorge! Muchas gracis Jorge, un abrazo por usted y por Diego.
