“Tuscany in a nutshell”
Reviewed 25 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Having driven up to Castiglion Fiorentino from Rome, it was wonderful to be met in the town by Pamela who led us by car a few minutes up the mountain road to Le Maceie. On arrival we were delighted to see that the property exceeded all our expectations with regard to the attractiveness of the location and wonderful views, the house itself which was traditional and imaginatively situated, and the family, who could not have been more welcoming.
The property had only been open a year and everything was spanking new. A real plus as I was travelling with a friend, was the two fully-equipped bathrooms - one each - such luxury! The house was in traditional style but there was nothing lacking to make it a home from home. Pamela's grandfather, an ex-builder, had constructed the place and is on hand if anything were to go wrong. It didn't.
Pamela lives with her young family a few miles form Le Maceie but on site is her mother, Luana, who made sure we were informed about the town and the traditional Tuscan delights it has to offer in the way of narrow steep streets and shops selling locally produced meat, vegetables, fruit and bread. To make sure we didn't starve on our late arrival, they had done our shopping for us. Luana's parents, who also live close by, were so friendly too, and we were given a constant supply of home-grown tomatoes and pomegranates.
The main purpose of the holiday was rest and this was easy in such a tranquil spot, perched on the hillside with beautiful views. The terrace was well-equipped with chairs, tables and sun loungers, ideal for reading, resting, sleeping and eating al fresco.
But to prevent ourselves getting too comfortable, we also did the tourist bit, again easy from this location. We drove to Arezzo, Perugia and Castiglione del Lago, all very accessible from Le Maceie. Public transport is good so we went by train to Florence, a pleasant journey which conserves all one's energy for sightseeing.
We arrived with Pamela and Luana as our proprietors and departed from them as our friends. Can't wait to see them and their beautiful Agroturismo property again.
