The Lodrona - History and Legend..

The Lodrona has ancient origins..The house, which been recently restored maintaining all it's original architectural features, favouring stone masonry and conserving original mosaic floors which reproduce the family crest.

The Malaspina..

The marquis Malaspina (powerful family from Genova) were overloads at Orsara. They were remembered by Dante in his "Divine Comedy" for their hospitality during his exile. The first marquis Malaspina who built the estate at Orsara was Federico, in 1266 he was succeeeded by his son Tomasso, in 1303 Insardo, son of Tomasso, ordered the murder of his brother Antonio and he took posession of the entire inheritance.

Isnardo was succeeded by his son Giacomo, Giacomo's son Tomasso succeeded him before his death, in 1435 he swore loyalty to the Duke of Savoia, he died in 1441 leaving his estate to his son Giacomo who was still a minor. He was there fore rappresented by his uncle Giovanni I, who after the premature death of his nephen claimed regency.

Giovanni I was succeeded by, in order : Antoniotto, Lodovico, and finally Giovanni II, Lord of Orsara from 1484 to 1529.

He died without leaving an heir, and so with the death of Giovanni II the masculine line of the family was extinguised. Orsara and the other parts of the estate passed to the daughter of Giovanni II, Violante, Who in 1530 married Giovanni Battista of Lodrone, and she Gave her state as a dowry.

A Bloody incident..

On the 28th January 1621, Giovanni Battista died a violent death at the Lodrona, he was stabbed 15 times, the perpetrators were unknown.

Local legend has it that the Count was killed using a garden hoe by the people of Orsara who were tired of his inquity, and was buried under a pile of stones. Others claim he was murderd for his "obscenity and wickedness" to conceal the supposition of a revolt against "ius primae noctis" pactised by the Lord.

Comfortable hospitality..

The Bed & Breakfast have comfortable rooms, furnished with ancient but the elegant stile.

Romantic tradition..

To the intimate and romantic atmosphere of the tradition,, modernity of the services is bound together: television to satellitare, frigo bar, and, naturally, bath in every room.

A place of charme that it grants to its hosts the tranquillity and the harmony of an pleasant stay or the ideal space for one relaxant pause during the travel.

Travelling abroad
Enjoying a comfortable and intimate bed and breakfast is the best way to discover Italy
(find here our commercial video in Italian). Here you can find pure bed and breakfasts and other kinds of accommodation, like boarding houses, inns, country houses, tourist rentals, family run hotels. This is because in Italy B&Bs are subject to specific legal and economic restrictions, but there are also other kinds of family managed accommodation that cannot legally use the "B&B" name. In our listing you will find the exact appellation for each property, and if you click it you will find all its specific features.
