"L'Agriturismo Canale" is a farmhouse that was completely renovated in the 19th century on the beautiful Tuscan hills that border the provinces of Florence, Pisa and Siena, near the Volterra and San Gimignano regions.

It is immersed in pristine and rugged natural setting rich in history and memories of the past, expressed by these cities in their art and stories.

The hamlet of Montelopio, approximately 2 km. from villa, is a witness to history: The Etruscans, the Longobardians, the Maritime Republic of Pisa, the Knights Templar, and the noble families of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany have all left signs of their passage and their stays here on this “mountain of well-being”.

The farmhouse Canale is surrounded by a green area (7000 sq. m) it has covered private parking, bocce court, table tennis, children play area and a very large swimming pool, set amongst olive, oleander and fruit trees. Each apartment has its own shaded gazebo with tables and chairs.

The location of the Agriturismo Canale is ideal for visiting the most important cultural and artistic centres of Tuscany such as Florence, Siena, Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano, Volterra and the seaside is only 45 minutes drive away.

Each year the tenor Andrea Bocelli performs at the “Teatro Naturale Del Silenzio” (Natural Theatre of Silence). Located near Lajatico and just 2 km from our company, it is a magical place nestled in the surrounding green hills.

Thanks to the additional presence of numerous international stars of music, the concerts attract thousands of people from all over the world. It is a special occasion that takes place every July and which continues to charm its audiences.

The property comprises two units, the main farm-house with 6 apartments: 4 one double bedroom apartments (50 sq.meters) and 2 two double bedroom apartments (75 sq.meters) and the hay barn with 2 three double bedroom apartments (80 sq.meters) restored and decorated in the original peasant style. These two apartments are suitable for large families and group of friends who wish to be together and desire more privacy.

The Tuscany region

Oltre le classiche mete delle più importanti città d'arte che ci circondano è possibile nelle immediate vicinanze visitare gli innumerevoli borghi seppur di interesse minore ma senz'altro ricchi di notevole interesse artistico e culturale; Fra i tanti menzioniamo nel paese di Peccioli Il Museo Etrusco e nelle circostanti campagne lo scavo etrusco del Santuario di Ortaglia risalente al IX-II sec. a.C., il singolare Museo delle Icone Russe e per la gioia dei più piccoli il Parco Preistorico fra i più grandi e belli d' Europa.

Nel borgo di Libbiano l'Osservatorio Astronomico Galileo Galilei, nel paese di Montefoscoli Il Museo della Civiltà Contadina, nel borgo di San Gervasio il Museo del Lavoro e della Civiltà Rurale; nel paese di Capannoli nella splendida villa Baciocchi in stile tardo barocco è possibile visitare sia il Museo Zoologico che il Museo Archeologico.

Innumerevoli sono gli itinerari di interesse naturalistico che si snodano in armonia fra le nostre colline facendoci assaporare le bellezze del luogo, inoltre ovunque si alzi lo sguardo al cielo si potranno notare suggestivi campanili e una sorprendente ricchezza di chiese sorte lungo dieci secoli.

Nell'arco dell'anno nel comune di Peccioli vi sono molte manifestazioni tradizionali con sagre gastronomiche,con feste rionali collegate a manifestazioni teatrali, eventi culturali di grande varietà ed alto livello: di teatro, musica, danza, cinema (con iniziative speciali per i ragazzi).

Volterra

Paesaggio e dintorni :

Sparsi nelle campagne circostanti come d'incanto notiamo subito innumerevoli borghi e casali, quest'ultimi anche diroccati, testimonianze di una civiltà agreste passata, ma che rivive palpitante in essi, trasmettendoci e facendoci vivere quei momenti di sana felicità e di semplici emozioni che tutti desideriamo e ti riporta rassicurante ad un mondo che finalmente senti tuo, l'agriturismo in Toscana.

A circa 1,5 km. dal nostro casale vi è il piccolo borgo medievale di Montelopio, raggiungibile da una strada di campagna che si snoda in perfetta armonia con il paesaggio, tra vigneti e oliveti, facendovi assaporare le meraviglie del luogo. Arrivati al borgo potete accomodarvi ai tavoli del caratteristico Perbacco (bar/alimentari) dove potrete gustare piatti tipici o prendere un aperitivo con assoluta tranquillità.

La nostra zona è servita molto bene da innumerevoli e tipici ristoranti; fra questi posso citarne uno in particolare (Ristorante Serravalle) raggiungibile comodamente anche a piedi dove il Sig. Paolo (propetario e cuoco per passione) vi farà gustare con i suoi piatti veramente esclusivi la tipica cucina toscana e vi consiglierà l'abbinamento con gli eccellenti vini locali sapientemente prodotti nella sua azienda.

Per chi volesse stare a contatto diretto con la natura, bellissimi percorsi naturali di trekking e di mountain bike e per i più sportivi che vogliono riscoprire il gusto dell'avventura, a 5 km dall'agriturismo sono a disposizione le strutture per effettuare passeggiate a cavallo lungo i suggestivi sentieri delle nostre colline, o praticare golf nel bellissimo campo di Castelfalfi, con un percorso di 18 buche, oltre ad un green e ad un bunker di pratica. Per i più comodi dedeti alla cura del propio corpo vi è a 12 km. dalla nostra azienda l'esclusivo centro termale di Casciana Terme dove è possibile beneficiare della linea (Cure Termali, Centro Benessere, Linea Cosmetica ecc.)

Su richiesta è possibile usufruire di visite guidate alle più belle città d'arte, oppure per una visita singolare, escursioni aeree.A soli 2 Km dalla nostra azienda, tutti gli anni si esibisce in concerto il tenore Andrea Bocelli che, grazie anche alla presenza di numerose Star internazionali della musica, attrae migliaia di persone da ogni parte del mondo.

Andrea Bocelli si esibisce nel Teatro Naturale Del Silenzio, vicino Lajatico, un luogo magico immerso nel verde delle colline che circondano la nostra zona. Un'occasione speciale che puntualmente si ripropone a luglio e che continua ad emozionare profondamente ogni singolo spettatore.
