'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”.

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.
