In the middle of the countryside outside Siena”
4 su 5 stelle Recensita il 3 dicembre 2011
A warm and charming B&B some miles outside Siena, on a winding gravel road in the middle of the countryside. Laura and Luciano couldn't be more welcoming and helpful to all their guests. Rooms are adequate size, clean and comfortable, everyone went to bed early, the rooster comes around to wake you in the morning - it is great!! Five rooms are around a central great room in the main house, then 5 more are in a separate building nearer the pool. Breakfasts in the community dining room are delicious! Laura cooks several nights a week, and it is well worth sharing in those meals (extra charge, very reasonable for the quality)! She is a fine cook! Realize that you have to drive everywhere from here, but many of the charming hill towns in Tuscany are a reasonable drive away. We spent four nights here and were very glad we did!

“Beautiful introduction to the Tuscan countryside”
5 su 5 stelle Recensita il 3 novembre 2011.
After some time in Florence, this was our introduction to the contryside of Tuscany. What a wonderful place. Laura and Luciano were great hosts, the room quiet, spacious and clean. The location is just south of Siena, and this provides a good base from which to explore the area.
Opt for the dinner! This was a grand feast of outstanding quality. The wine selection is excellent also. Fresh and good food, prepared well! The breakfast was unbelievably plentiful.
If you are staying around Siena with a car, stay at this marvelous B&B. Laura and Luciano will take good care of you

Terrific Tuscany Accommodation!”
5 su 5 stelle Recensita il 26 ottobre 2011 NOVITÀ
The Il Canto's name was obtained from a Rick Steves Italy book, from which I've had very mixed results in the past. This B&B is not be be missed and we will stay here again. We can only offer glowing comments. It's a terrific location from which you can visit SIena and many other hill-towns and sights in Tuscany.
The owners (Laura and Luciano) were as nice as could be and are naturals for this position. Their restored farmhouse accommodation offers an authentic Tuscany "feel". We travelled with two other couples and had separate bedroom/bath suites, connected by a separate living/sitting room.
They cooked a wonderful dinner (25 Euros each) of typical Tuscan cuisine that included a spectacular table of numerous desserts. This is only by previous arrangement, and is not served daily.
The breakfasts were fantastic and included many pastries, hot croissants, yogurt, eggs, fruit, etc.
They had easy Wifi to use.
These owners deserve all the business that this fabulous accommodation receives!

“A birthday celebration to remember !”
5 su 5 stelle Recensita il 23 ottobre 2011
We arrived at Il Canto del Sole on my husbands birthday. We were traveling with friends, and Luciano picked us up at the train station in Siena, as we had not yet rented a car. Both Laura and Luciano greeted us like 'long lost friends', and made us feel so welcome in their wonderful B&B. I had asked Laura if we could have a special bottle of wine for the birthday dinner, and IF possible some sort of birthday cake. We shared a lovely dinner (both Laura and Luciano are excellent cooks) and an excellent bottle of wine with our friends, and upon finishing our meal the lights were suddenly dimmed in the dining room, and Laura and Luciano came in from the kitchen with a beautiful cake. Everyone in the room started singing Happy Birthday while Laura and Luciano son's played happy birthday on the piano.....my husband was so surprised and pleased ! But, there's more. Our son, unknown to us, had been in contact with Laura to arrange a special birthday cake (and wine) for the celebration. The top of the cake had an image/photo (edible frosting) of our 3 year old grandson, with birthday wishes from all the family. It was just THE BEST surprise, and Laura went out of her way to make all the arrangements for the cake. This lovely B&B is more than a place to sleep and relax (quiet, peaceful, clean).....it is a place to connect with a wonderful Italian family who go out of their way to make you feel comfortable, meet your travel needs, and possibly teach you some Italian during your stay.
Consiglio sulle camere: The rooms in the main house have a common living room area.....good for strategizing, and going over maps. There is also an outdoor balcony with table and chairs.....great place to watch the beautiful sunsets.

I almost hate to review this knowing that someday when we want to come back they may not have room for us. Anyhow, our stay there was fabulous!!!! The grounds are so peaceful and relaxing. We were able to enjoy the immaculately clean pool and patios. Everything was superb. From breakfast to the dinner they made us one night. The comfort and class this place has compares to know other and the love that goes in to this place by the owners is reflected in everything that they provide.
