Agriturismo La Maesta
Reviewed 29 November 2013

I have now stayed with Rosalinda and her family on two occassions and I will be returning again in May 2014. You couldn't get a better place to stay when visiting Tuscany.
Rosalinda , Stephano, Virginia , Lilla and Florintina make you feel so welcome and the accomodation and meals are top class. What a way to see this region, nothing is ever a problem the feeling is relaxed and you get transported to all the cities and sights. After a day out sightseeing it's great to return the villa and sit and relax with a red wine taking in the spectacular views or a swim in the pool.
Each time I return it feels like i am visiting friends.

I spent a week at Agriturismo La Maestra in May/June 2013, & it was absolutely perfect...The accomodation, the hospitality, the meals, the breathtaking views, the sight seeing transport, ,eveything anyone could wish for in a Tuscan Holiday. My only complaint..it wasn't long enough.I was with 6 friends, & we all had a wonderful time, & I can't wait to return to Rosalinda, Stefano, Virginia, Lilla, & Florentina in September 2014...

Room Tip: All rooms are very well equipped, & afford beautiful views in all directions from the balconies.

We could not have asked for a better holiday it was beyond our expectations. The meals and their hospitality was excellent. The ability to discuss as a small group where you wanted to visit and then being driven and picked up from the locations was a joy. We would recommend a stay to anyone who is looking for a more relaxed stay.

Room Tip: All of the accommodation is in a separate building next to the family home. All of the rooms are goo...

My family and I have recently returned from a wonderful week at La Maesta on our first trip to Tuscany. We stayed in Casa Virgilio which was a spacious, spotless and very well equipped villa and had the most amazing view of the valley below from two of the bedrooms and the balcony. The balcony is the perfect place for lazy breakfasts and lunches and having a glass of wine watching the stunning Tuscan sunsets. The shared pool is lovely to return to after a day of sightseeing in this beautiful region
.
Rosalinda and her family made us feel very welcome and offered many helpful tips for visiting local towns and cities to ensure we found our way, found great parking spots, good restaurants to try which ensured we really made the most of our time in Tuscany.

La Maesta is very central to reach many of the delights of Tuscany with good train and road links – just over an hour to Florence, half an hour to the wineries and within easy reach of many key towns. We were lucky to see stunning fields of sunflowers as well as the stunning Tuscan landscape of olive groves and cyprus trees .

Cortona is only a 15 minute drive from La Maesta and is an enchanting hillside town offering amazing views of the valley, quaint cobbled streets, a good selection of restaurants and gelaterias. Local supermarkets are within a 10 minute drive offering the basic essentials during your stay.

We left after a fantastic week wanting to come back for more, having only scratched the surface of visiting this beautiful region of Italy. Our stay was a perfect introduction to Tuscany and I hope the start of regular visits to explore this region further.. We hope to be back very soon and a big thank you again to Rosalinda and her family for making our trip so memorable and making us feel so welcome.

Room Tip: Having a car is by far the best way to explore the local Tuscan area.

We, two Canadians, just returned from a wonderful trip to La Maesta! Rosalinda, Stefano, Pat, Lilla (Nonna), Florentina and Virginia made our first trip to Italy unforgettable. From the time Rosalinda picked us up at the train station, we were made to feel right at home. She suggested and drove us to and from many incredibly beautiful towns, with recommendations for sight seeing, dining and shopping. At La Maesta, we stayed in a clean, comfortable flat with a gorgeous view and easy access to the pool, which was lovely after a long, hot but very enjoyable day of walking. The homemade meals were delicious and were made even better by Nonna teaching us how to make gnocchi from scratch! I have since tried it at home, not nearly as good, but still not too bad! We enjoyed everyone's company, including meeting and chatting with Pat, playing in the pool with Virginia, and sharing wine and grappa with Rosalinda and Stefano. We highly recommend La Maesta (Tuscan Sun) and look forward to another visit!

I have been twice to this wonderful bed and breakfast/ homestay. It is a visit to a friend, with all the care to make the week a memorable one. You visit the places you request and can do things at your own pace. You may like to stay on the farm and just laze by the pool. I enjoyed the taste of the true Tuscany because you share meals with the family and experience a bit of their life.

Our stay at La Maestà (Tuscan Sun) was the realisation of my lifelong dream to 'learn to cook' in Tuscany. Rosalinda, Stephano, Virginia, Nonna & Francesca provided the best all round experience in Tuscany and welcomed us into their family and way of life. Rosalinda worked tirelessly to ensure we saw the amazing sites, experienced the culture and soaked up the history of Tuscany all tailored to 'our' wishes.

We were blessed with perfect weather and I was happy that we decided to go in June. The views from the patio right outside our bedroom door was breathtaking and provided a relaxing backdrop for pre-dinner drinks before our delicious meals.

I researched many 'cooking tours' before we settled on La Maestà because of the freedom to do what we wanted to do and to learn to cook (or not to) if we wished.

What can I say but 'A HUGE THANK YOU' for the most memorable trip of a lifetime. Would love to come back one day....hopefully!

Room Tip: All rooms were great as they had a communal lounge, dining, fireplace , TV etc. You could interact w...
