Farmhouse il Canneto
Reviewed 5 September 2013 via mobile

In the middle of the Tuscan countryside, a great agriturismo with a great swimming pool, private little terrace for each of the 5 residences. Do come prepared for a few insects as you are in the countryside. The owners do not offer meal options but there is a very well furnished kitchenette to have homemade meals at leisure. All in all a great stay.

We've just returned from a beautiful one week stay at Il Canneto. We enjoyed our stay in the Il Sole apartment. Simply but tastefully decorated with high ceilings and oak beams. The apartment remains nice and cool during the hot daytime tempertures with it's tiled floors.
Comfortable beds and all the things you need for a perfect stay. Having said that, the kettle was missing from our apartment. But we just made do with a saucepan. Sandra (the owner) can speak a little English and she is very helpful. The property could do with a welcome brochure just to answer the usual questions when starting a holiday in a new place.

The swimming pool is big and has a shallow end. The view from the property is wonderful. Lovely views of the hilltop town of Casole d'Elsa.

Please try the resturant down the road, near the larger Agriturismo Fonte property. It's only a 10 min walk away. Fantastic food.

We'll be back.

We had a enjoyable long weekend at Il Canneto (apparently there are two properties though we only saw this one). We stayed in a lovely two bedroom apartment. There was a lot of room and good quality linens and cleanliness. Kids could roam. A pingpong table added. It was a cold June but we made it in the pool a few times. Restaurant recommendations were good. Only two small critiques: I like pristine pools and we had to clean the pool for quite a while every morning (presumably this changes in the summer); because of the location it would be helpful to have a map in the room with directions (there are a few lowscale industries nearby). For a true agriturismo, I do like to see some animals--though we saw peasants on the road to Il Canneto. The price was affordable, and I knew that when booking. It was fun to explore the area, and see some things we would not normally have seen (an amazing medieval festival in Colle d'elsa, during June).

We stayed at one of the two properties La Peschiera for 5 nights. Our main point for staying here was the close proximity to many of the Tuscan main attractions.

Our apartment was Granaio. This compromises of 3 bedrooms, kitchen/diner/ 2 bathrooms/outside covered BBQ area. The apartment is very traditional inside and has been converted to a very high standard. The apartment was sparkling clean and we had a lovely welcome gift of two bottles of homemade wine (of which we purchased several more). The complex also has a communal swimming pool that is cleaned each morning and more than enough sun loungers to go around. Out host Sandra was very welcoming and was more than willing to help with any questions we had, her local knowledge was invaluable. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and we saw an array of wildlife during our visit.

Casole D'elsa is a short drive or walk away. The village has all amenities you need to get by, if you are wanting to do a larger shop it is best to head to Colle Di Val D'elsa where there is a well stock Co-op supermarket.

Altogether we had a fantastic stay and look forward to visiting again in the future!

We went to Tuscany last April and enjoyed our stay in Il Canneto very much. The owners actually have two properties: Il Canneto and La Peschiera. Both farms have been converted into holiday apartments and each property has a rather large communal pool. Both properties are set in the middle of the Tuscan countryside, but they are easily accessible, as they are situated about two kilometers off the road to Casole d’Elsa.

The farms have been refurbished into tasteful, modern holiday apartments. The accommodations are very clean and up to date. Moreover, the apartments have been nicely decorated, making you feel right at home. The authenticity of the farms have been preserved. There’s a fully equipped kitchen and also the bathroom is up to standard. Our bedroom was rather spacious. Every apartment has a private outside space, too.

The owners live in a house nearby and they were very welcoming upon arrival. They also respected our privacy during our holiday. We bought some of their olive oil and I asked for some pointers on how to make great pasta. Delicious!!

You have a very nice view of the picturesque village of Casole d’Elsa nearby, situated on a hill. The village is easily accessible, you can buy groceries and there is a pizzeria, restaurant, bar, gelateria, pharmacy, … There are larger supermarkets in Colle Di Val d’Elsa.

Both properties are perfectly located for excursions to places such as Siena, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, Volterra. We also visited Florence and the chianti region. All these places were worth the visit. We had a wonderful time in Tuscany and we will return to Il Canneto or La Peschiera next summer.

Firstly there are two properties, They are both converted farm buildings with their own swimming pools but quite separate from one another. Il Canneto the smaller holds from a minimum of 2 to a toal 22 guests and is divided into spearate apartments which can be rented individually. The larger property 'La Peschiera' holds from 2 up to 30 guests, again capable of being rented as individual uniots or as one large property. We rented La Peschiera in August this hear to house us and our guests for a wedding in the nearby Casole D'elsa, we also stayed in il canneto back in July when we were in casole d'elsa finalising our preparations.
Both properties are immaculate, they have been converted into tourist accommodation within the last 2 - 3 years and as such everything is spic and span. The swimming pools are fantastic and both properties benefit from wonderful views of the tuscan countryside and the hill-top village of Casole D'elsa. Slightly off the tourist trail but 20 mins drive into San Gimignano and 30 mins into Siena, the location os prefect for an authentic tuscan holiday. The owners are efficient, accommodating and friendly and the apartments are spotless and provided with all the cookign and eating utensils you would need. Our party included infants (cots provided), toddlers and children right up to our parents in their 50's and 60;'s we all had a wonderful time and intend to return here regularly for family holidays or wedding anniversary celebrations.
