We stayed for a week at Agriturismo La Maesta in June 2013, and booked the full "Tuscan Sun" package:which included continental breakfast each morning; several family dinners with our hosts: Rosalinda, Stephano, little Virginia, Nonna Lilla & Florintina; plus a comprehensive touring itinerary around the region with Rosalinda. We stayed in a comfortable self-contained cottage on the property overlooking a small olive grove & veggie patch, just perfect for us to finish each day by watching the sunset with a glass of local wine and regional produce. Family dinner nights were a degustation of local treats, deftly prepared by La Nonna. On the optional nights, Roslinda either drove us in to Old Cortona with a recommendation somewhere for a great dining experience, or we purchased supplies from the local supermarket and cooked a simple pasta ourselves. The day trips were planned as such that Rosalinda would drop us off in the morning at a convenient location and we were then free to wander around each township armed with a map & highlights, and then to enjoy lunch/wine tastings etc knowing that our trusty driver would pick us up again in the afternoon and we would not have to drive. We would not have seen as much as we did, had we attempted to do it all by ourselves. A great introduction to Tuscanny!
