The place lies beautifully and very peacefully. Some will probably say, that it lies far out in the country. It does, and you can call that a good or bad thing, according to your own taste. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The place is clean and pretty - but we do think, that the garbage could be collected more often. All in all, we (5 people) had a a good experience and are very satisfied with the place. It can absolutely be recommended, if you like agriturismo.
One tip: (It is impossible to write to others in the travel-tips-box!!): If you want to eat out and get really Tuscan food, try Podera Serravalle (Agritorismo Serravalle). The restaurant is located about 500 m from Canale, and you get really high quality at a reasonable price at Paolo!!
