“Warm hospitality in a tranquil setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

We recently had the pleasure to spend 4 days at this agriturismo in the hills outside of Cortona. The accommodation is very clean and has the authentic tuscan rustic style. The highlight of this property is the kind and warm hospitality of Maria and her family. She made us feel at home and welcome, always taking time to greet us and speak to my 5 year old at every opportunity. The food in the restaurant is fantastic, particularly the house special antipasti and the meat, their specialty, the bistecca fiorentina. We will definately be back, perhaps next time in the spring or summer when we can take advantage of the pool. Overall, highly recommended and we look forward to returning sometime soon!!!

Have friends living nearby and have eaten at this restaurant a couple of times when visiting them. Very friendly welcome and prices below the average. Best thing is their starter 'Mixta Especial' (a bit of everything on a plate, cheeses, meats, homemade honey, bruschetta & beautiful vegetable tempura - will serve 3 easily as a starter, and maybe even 4). Closely followed by the 'bistecca' (you can hear it being chopped in the 'macceleria' next door). The house wine is very drinkable and very cheap. Nice setting on the patio with space inside should the weather demand. Highly recommended.

When you are searching for a tranquil holiday in the hills of Southeast Tuscany, you need to visit Acquaviva. At about 25 minutes from the medieval city of Cortona, this agriturismo offers you a quiet atmosphere in which you can unwind completely.
The owners (Maria and Angiolo Cassucci and their sons) are pricelessly hospitable and they try to make your stay a success. The apartments are fully furnished with antique furniture and the swimming pool is nicely refreshing on a hot summer day.
But the most charming aspect of this agriturismo is the small restaurant where genuine Tuscan dishes and good wine are served. At night the restaurant crowds up with tourists and local people who enjoy both the food and each others company in a relaxed atmosphere.
We were very lucky to have found this address!

Agrismoturismo Aquaviva in the hill side setting of San Pietro A Dama Tuscany offers tranquility, superb Tuscan food in the sites own restaurant and a set of holiday cottages which are both comfortable and supebly set. A pool, horses if you want to ride and the hosts Maria and Angelo create a memorable break. For couples, small groups or familiies, this is an ideal place to experience overwhelming hospitality and Italian culture. You cannoy go wrong here, it is a braek to be savoured. The restaurant offers rteal Tuscan food and wine without frills, but the setting is superb. A real find.
