                              Car: Not Necessary

                              Tucked away in a lesser known part of Tuscany, undiscovered by crowds of tourists, ( L'Agriturismo Canale ), on the outskirts of the medieval village of Montelopio, is idyllically located in an exceptionally beautiful, lush and varied landscape dotted with olive groves, vines, fields of wheat and sunflowers and woodlands abounding in wild boars, porcupines, foxes and deer.

                              Situated where the provinces of Pisa, Siena and Florence meet, the Villa is just a short distance from the well preserved historical towns of San Gimignano and Volterra.

                              Even the village of Montelopio, about 1 km from the Villa, boasts an ancient history. The Etruscans, Longobards, the seafaring Republic of Pisa, the Templars and the noble families of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany have all left their traces as they passed through or settled, attracted by this “prosperous hill”.

                              Beyond the classical destinations of the most important cities of art which surround us, in our immediate vicinity it is possible to..

                              Other Activities: air tours, wine tours, cooking classes, Italian ceramics, guided tours, museum, zoo, park prehistoric astronomical observatory.

                              Golf: Our area is very well served by countless typical restaurants; amongst these, I can make mention of one in particular (Ristorante Serravalle) which is easily accessible on foot, and where Paolo (owner and passionate cook) will make you taste typical Tuscan cuisine with his truly exclusive dishes, and will suggest to you which of the excellent, local wines to accompany your meal, all expertly produced by his own company.

                              For those who would like to come into direct contact with nature, there are stunning nature walks for trekking, mountain bike riding (bikes can be hired through the company) and, for the most sport loving of you who want to rediscover the spirit of adventure, about 4 kilometres from the Agriturismo at the equestrian centre, there is the infrastructure available for horse riding along the enchanting paths of our hills. For those who would like to indulge in the care of their own bodies, 12 kilometres from our company there is the exclusive thermal centre of Casciana Terme, where it is possible to benefit from the full range (thermal cures, well-being centre, cosmetic line etc).

                              Upon request, it is possible to have guided tours to the most beautiful cities of art, or for a very particular experience, aerial trips.

                              Ski: What to visit

                              Beyond the classical destinations of the most important cities of art which surround us, in our immediate vicinity it is possible to visit countless smaller villages which are without doubt rich with notable artistic and cultural interest; amongst others, we draw your attention to the town of Peccioli. There is the Etruscan Museum and, in its surrounding countryside, the Etruscan excavations of the Ortaglia sanctuary, dating back to the ninth-second century BC, the very particular Museum of Russian Icons and, for the pleasure of the little ones, the prehistoric park, among the largest and most beautiful in Italy.

                              In the village of Libbiano there is the Astronomical Observatory of Galileo Galieli, in the town of Montefoscoli, The Museum of Peasant Civilization, in the village of San Gervasio, The Museum of Workers and Rural Civilization; in the town of Capannoli in the splendid Villa Baciocchi, in late Baroque style ecc....

                              Year Purchased: 1989

                              About the owner: I love my Tuscany and all its old and new traditions, I love the country life and all that surrounds it: The discovery of old farmhouses, breathtaking landscapes and hidden places. In this case I was lucky enough to buy and renovate this house with love and professionalism, respecting the architectural systems of the past and adopting strictly original material at that time. I believe that my sacrifices I have been well rewarded since they are very happy with the final result. I had the good fortune to live in a small village in this part of the land among the most popular and visited places in the world. At school I had as a companion Andrea Bocelli, it's right! the current Maestro Andrea Bocelli, at that time he lived with his parents too, in a small village (Lajatico) a few miles from me, where he still performs regularly every year in the beautiful scenery of hills which is (The Theatre of silence), I forgot, a few days ago, how could it happen to you I met him riding his horse, he stopped for a drink at the bar of the country. In Tuscany this can happen and more!

                              Why the Owner Chose Peccioli:
                              I decided to rent this property to share with others the strong emotions and sensations that gives us this magnificent place!
