My wife and I stayed at Il Canto Del Sole last week for 5 wonderful days! Luciano and Laura are the kind of hosts that you hope for when you are exploring a new part of the world!

Cannot say enough about this place. Set on a farm just outside Siena, Il Canto del Sole was a perfect base to explore all of Tuscany, from Florence and Siena to the Chianti region, Pisa and Lucca, Pienza, Montalcino, Montapulciano and beyond. Luciano and Laura were extremely accommodating and breakfast every morning was delicious. They even cooked us dinner one... More

Wonderful service began by coming to pick up our luggage while we visited Siena then returning to pick us up after we'd enjoyed the city. We were given 4 rooms instead of our requested 3 at no extra cost as well as use of a beautiful sitting room adjoining all 4 rooms. Il Canto is rustic AND elegant in a... More

This was our second trip to Italy and our stay at Il Canto del Sole was by far the best experience. We stayed a week with our adult children & our 14 month old grandchild. Laura & Luciano were the most accommodating hosts making us feel welcome in their home. We had a delicious breakfast every morning served by Christiana... More

We stayed a week there and loved it. Laura and Luciano were great hosts. The meals and accomodations were the best in our month long Italy trip. We had special dietary needs, because of an allergy, and they went out of their way to accomodate it. Their location was right in the center of all the sights we wanted to... More

Highlight of our 2 week Europe adventure! We stayed here for 4 nights on our honeymoon and wished we had stayed here for most of the trip! Wonderful property, comfortable and spacious rooms, delicious breakfast, delightful owners. There are many places to wander on this property - endless things to enjoy.

We cannot say enough about our positive experience with Laura and Luciano. I don't think you could find more gracious and welcoming hosts in another B and B. There is little we can add that has not already been said in other Trip Advisor reviews; we can only confirm that you will enjoy the experience immensely. The rooms, towels, common... More

We were in Tuscany to ride bicycles and see the sights. We accomplished both riding and driving from Il Canto del Sole. We road may miles in the surrounding area and also did car trips to Sienna and Florence. Luciano and Laura were excellent hosts, very gracious and accommodating.

We spent three nights at Il Canto del Sole in the Tuscan countryside near Siena. It was a wonderful, calm place to stay. The B and B is outside Siena so a car is necessary to be able to get lunch and dinner. We were glad we had a GPS, because it was easy to get lost in the evening... More

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
