Our drive from Venice had been way too long and filled with calamities, such as an ill sister in law and a transmission that was about to fall. We reached Il Canto del Sole late afternoon, with the help of Laura's perfect directions. We were tired and frustrated, but Laura and Luciano helped us regroup. Laura found a doctor for...

We stayed at the this lovely B&B outside of Siena during the month of May. It was absolute perfection. We spent most of our days in Siena which is a mere 10min away; but one can easily reach fabulous local wineries. In the afternoons and evenings, Il Canto provides a rustic retreat to come back to. Walking around the farms...

At the risk of piling onto prior reviews, we had an AWESOME experience staying at Il Canto Del Sole. Laura and Luciano were the perfect hosts and went many extra miles to make our stay a perfect Tuscan experience. Not only did they help us book a fantastic cooking class in nearby Siena, they also offered to drive us to...

I can not say enough good things about our 4-night stay at Il Canto del Sole. Laura and Luciano are the best hosts ever- very accomodating and willing to bend over backwards for whatever is needed. Breakfast was great- fresh pastries, breads, meats, cheeses, and eggs. Laura cooked two amazing dinners during our stay and Luciano has a great wine...

All of the superlative reviews of this small B&B are completely justified. When booking the trip I thought the reviews were too good to be true. We were more than surprised when this property met and exceeded our expectations. The Owners were gracious and very helpful with suggestions and recommendations. Make sure to visit the Wednesday market in Siena. Great...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"IL CANTO DEL SOLE" is an old 18 th century Tuscan farmhouse. We have recently restored it, preserving all its original features. The Farmhouse offers 10 rooms, each furnished with the simple furniture originally found in them, which has been carefully restored.The rooms are all very light and airy and offer a complete range of facilities: satellite TV, fridge, bathroom with shower and hair dryer. Both structures are surrounded by around one hectare of shady gardens, immersed in the heart of the crete senesi countryside. They are just 10 km from Siena (Porta Romana) and 1 km from the "Grancia di Cuna" (a 13 th century fortified farmhouse on the Via Francigena). We offer our guests: a salt water swimming pool (7 x 14), children's play areas, a barbecue area and a panoramic terrace above our wine cellar, with views over the Val d'Arbia. During the winter, breakfast and dinner are served in a large dining room with a central fireplace, while during the summer, they are served in the external courtyard.A pool table and a selection of games are available to guests in the lemon room, adjacent to the lounge. In addition to cooking, we (Luciano and Laura) are at your complete disposal for any information or suggestions for walks, mountain biking, horse riding and car excursions. In addition to the gardens, we also have around three hectares of land where you will find our horses' paddocks, a small vineyard and vegetable crops grown exclusively for use by our family and our guests. ... more   less
