We review each country house on a scale of 3 to 5, with 5 being the best category. We have looked at price, quality and x-factor and come up with a comprehensive review, which is largely made with the heart, and therefore is very personal.

    Amazing position

    Joint dinner on the terrace

    Producer of wine

A true favorite among our guests - and we clearly understand you!

La Rocca is positioned on a hilltop with panoramic views of Pistoia and Florence. Here is the perfect - and very idyllic - starting point for excursions to Lucca and Florence.

Here you will find a charming agriturismo, where the owners' passion for wine and oil blends in perfectly with their guests experience of true Italian hospitality. On this hilltop above Pistoia, it is possible to experience a little piece of Tuscany, offering a combination of nature, food, relaxation and culture.

La Rocca consists of 6 apartments (a total of 28 people) - all well maintained and including air conditioning, heating (winter), TV and kitchen facilities. Shared washing machine and garden furniture available. There is a pool (8 x 5 m and 1.40 m deep - the pool is heart shaped so it may appear shorter in certain places), which is located on a slope with sun loungers and views of the valley.


Quarrata (3 km) is a small town where it is possible to find everything needed: shops, restaurants, pizzerias, bakeries, bars, supermarkets. Not an exciting city but convenient.

Only Roverella & Robina and Larice have their own private terraces in front of the apartments. The other apartments have a very large panoramic terrace furnished with tables, chairs and sun chairs. This is the favorite place which is used to enjoy a meal or a glass of wine while enjoying the breathtaking views.

La Rocca organizes two different types of cooking school:n (only in high season)

The complete cooking school, which the owners organize on a restaurant near La Rocca del Maestrino, where a professional chef teaches you to make various typical Tuscan dishes. Chef School takes three hours (16:00 to 19.00) and ends with dinner and a bottle of wine included. The entire arrangement costs 80 euros per person.

A "lighter" form of cooking school, where it is possible to learn how to make pizzas, is organized by the owners directly at La Rocca. During this lesson you will learn how to make great pizza and how to bake them in a new pizza oven, which the owners have built. This pizza experience takes about 2 hours and ends with a tasting of the delicious pizzas. The price is 35 euros per person.

Internet is available to all guests in a common room at La Rocca, and it is free of charge.

In La Rocca's basement a small cozy area is arranged where wine tasting and oil tasting is organized. You can taste self-produced extra virgin olive oil as well as "Chianti wine" and "Vin Santo". You will also get a chance to taste traditional Tuscan specialties. Can be arranged all year. 

In the area are lots of good, local restaurants serving delicious Tuscan food. In the nearby Quarrata there are: 

IL LANGUORINO (3 km)
SIMPOSIO (4 km)

- and in the area a bit further away you will find these restaurants: 

IL FARO (6 km)
IL CAVALLINO ROSSO (6,5 km)
RISTORANTE S. PIETRO (7 km)

La BUSSOLA (9 km)
OCA ROSSA (10 km)

In Pistoia (approx. 17 km) there is a wide choice like LA BOTTEGAIA, I SALAIOLI, LA CANTINETTA 

Just below the area, guests can find hiking trails and dirt roads that are ideal for trekking, mountain biking or horseback riding.
