Il Maestrale was established in 1952 when, following the land reclamation and colonization of the Tuscan-Latium Maremma, the Ente Maremma, the Development Agency in Tuscany and Lazio, in
implementation of the Land Reform laws, assigned Petruzzi Quintilio the fund n. 13 Maestrale. The family begins to cultivate the land with love and dedication, experiencing the difficulty of reclaiming and making productive a previously uncultivated land. After the death of her grandfather Quintilio, head of the family, Daniela, in her early years of university, began to take care of the management of the Podere Maestrale and, continuing to attend her juridical studies with unchanged dedication, she began to feel the moral duty to maintain the productivity of that good to which her family had always directed its efforts. When Daniela, who had graduated in Law, began her collaboration with the University of Siena, the family decided to sell part of the land and the funds for the processing of agricultural products became unused.
So, in 1999 the idea of finding new value in those places was born, giving life to the Agriturismo Il Maestrale with its first 2 lodgings: La Mimosa and La Giara, built in 2000. The business progressively grows to become what it is today. The accommodations all preserve the rustic taste of the past and are pleasantly furnished according
to the Tuscan tradition. They are surrounded by beautiful olive trees, lawns and beautiful flowers.
You will feel at home immediately and can rely on the constant presence of the owners in the property. In the morning you will be awakened by the chirping of birds and walking barefoot on the green lawn surrounding the accommodation you will feel a pleasant feeling of freedom. The scents of the Mediterranean brush, the countryside, the sea and the nearby secular pinewoods will allow your soul to relax. A dive in the pool, a good book and even a new friendship can certainly enhance your stay. In the arcade, as the sun sets, you can dine while the breath of the rural world is calm and relax in the ecstatic silence of a starry sky…
In the family garden you will have the chance to taste the seasonal products of the land cultivated only with
natural elements (water, sun, earth) and, maybe, pick them up with your own hands! You can admire the olive grove with its splendid examples of Frantoiano cultivars and try the product: a fine, fragrant and fruity extra virgin olive oil with which to enrich your dishes or to give to a loved one when you return. A holiday at Agriturismo Castiglione della Pescaia Il Maestrale will make you rediscover the satisfaction of empathy with nature, satisfying all your sensory needs: you will see, feel, smell, touch and taste the luxuriant, genuine and warm nature of Maremma.
In the property, everyday life flows in respect of Nature and its rhythms… The Agriturismo, in order to offerits guests a comfortable but, at the same time, environmentally sustainable stay, for the production of electricity has photovoltaic systems located above the car park, uses solar thermal panels and heat pump for the production of hot water and heating.
