This B&B had great reviews on TripAdvisor so we decided to give it a try and we were happy we did. The website photos give a good depiction of this charming, rustic B&B surrounded with nice views of the rolling Tuscan countryside. It's easy to tour the Crete Senesi (amazing), southern part of Chianti trail, and hill towns like Volterrra, Montepulciano and San Gimignano. The B&B is about 15 mins from Siena.
When you are not touring, there's s nice salt-water pool, play area (well away from rooms) for kids, plenty of areas to sit inside and out, & places to bike and walk. We liked to check out the rooster and hens, kitchen garden, and horses.
The family that owns the B&B is lovely. Laura graciously took time to email to answer questions about wine tours in the area as well as detailed questions about the property. Luciano is very charming and recommended a terrific Crete Senesi drive. One night, we asked for glasses for a dessert wine bought at the winery and he rustled up some leftover dessert for us as well!!!
The breakfast is great---gorgeous orange yolked eggs, fruit, meats, pastries, sweets, and more. The dining area is a nice umbrella covered open patio. On nights that Laura cooks, the patio is transformed by candlelight to something very special. The dinner is a treat starting with aperitifs on a rooftop deck. It's fun to chat with other travelers while sampling Luciano's homemade wine. The dinner is multi-course and Laura is an amazing cook. We are still raving about a zucchini custard like appetizer with tomato sauce and the array of desserts offered. They offer a really nice wine list at very good prices.
All in all, a wonderful stay that we would definitely repeat.

Truly one of our favorite places during out 2 week stay in Italy. Such a beautiful place and Laura, Luciano and Marco were so wonderful. If you are lucky enough to be there on a night that they make dinner, please take advantage of it. The combination of good food, wonderful views, gracious hosts and other interesting travelers will make for one of the best nights of your trip!
Dreaming of coming back!

We had a great visit for our honeymoon. Laura and Luciano are the nicest! Thanks for the amazing meal, all the tips on where to go and what to see and our only regret is not having more time to stay!

We stayed at Il Canto del Sole for 4 nights and could not have been more pleased with our choice! The hospitality we received from Laura and Luciano was top notch. They really go above and beyond in every aspect. We were genuinely welcomed into their home and felt that way everyday! Laura made dinner one night over our stay it was truly the best food we had the entire 12 days we were in Italy. Luciano takes great care in serving your dinner and helping you select your wine. We hope to stay at Il Canto del Sole again in the near futrure!
