This is a country house at the feet of the Montelaterone Medieval fortress on Mount Amiata. There is a small grocery shop in the small village which is only 1 km away. All the other shops people may need are in Arcidosso, which is 5-6 km away. Il Canapaio is only 30 km from Montalcino, 35 km from the Saturnia thermal baths and about 60 km from the sea.
The house is on top of a hill with a beautiful view on the valley below. It is surrounded by olive trees and gives guests the possibility to go fishing, as the river Zancona flows a few hundreds metres from it.
There are two flats. They are both on the ground floor and both of them are furnished in a rustic country style. Can be rented together by a group of 8 people at a very good price.
The swimming pool (10 m x 5 m; deep 1,20 m) is marvellous: set in a green area, with olive trees and a beautiful lawn around it. It has also an incredible view on the nearby hills and on the valley.
There is a parking area outside, a gazebo, Sat TV, (the B-B-Q is in common), a washing machine and a fireplace. Since 2005 is installed air conditioning (with warm air too, to be used in the winter months).

The smaller apartment, consisting of living room with kitchenette and bathroom with shower, is reserved for the owner who is almost never present, especially when there are guests so that they can have their privacy.

The largest apartment, which can accommodate 4 people, the only one that is rented, has its own entrance which opens onto a spacious kitchen equipped with a fridge, gas stove and a small electric oven. A long table with chairs and benches comfortably accommodates 6 people. In the living room there is also a stone fireplace.
A large corridor with sofa leads to two bedrooms (one with a double bed and the other with two single beds). From each bedroom you enter your own bathroom with shower.
The apartment has an outdoor parking space, gazebo, satellite TV, barbecue, washing machine and fireplace. There is also an air conditioning system (usable in the coldest periods even as heating).

We are positive that you will spend a beautiful holiday at Il Canapaio, immersed in the green of the olive trees, lulled by the silence of nature and by the noise of the flowing river.

Fantatstisches Haus! Wie im Paradies

Wir haben schon auf den Bildern gesehen, dass das Haus toll ist, aber in Echt war es noch viel schöner! Wir sind absolut begeistert. Wir waren zu 4. dort. Jeweils zwei Paare. Das Gründtstück ist riesig, hat einen tollen Pool mit ausreichend Liegestühlen und Sonnenschirmen. Der Garten duftet nach Rosmarin und die Aussicht ist super. Auch die Innenausstattung hat uns vollkommen gereicht. Die Küche hat genügend Töpfe, Pfannen, Siebe etc. Und auch sonst hat uns an nichts gefehlt.

Die Lage ist ebenfalls super. Es gibt sehr viele kleine Städte im mittelalterlichen Stil in der Umgebung. Auch nach Siena und das Meer konnten wir ohne Probleme innerhalb einer Stunde erreichen. Es gibt reichlich zu sehen. Es wird einem auf keinen Fall langweilig!
Der Besitzer hat uns gleich sehr herzlich begrüßt und uns ein paar Tipps für die Umgebung gegeben. Die eine Haushälfte gehört ihm. Dieser wohnt allerdings nicht dort, sondern kommt ab und zu vorbei um sich um das Grundstück zu kümmern. Inklusive dem Pferd und dem tollen Schäferhund. Wir haben uns direkt in den Hund verliebt. Er ist sehr gut erzogen, sehr lieb und verspielt. Wir hatten reichlich Spaß mit ihm.

Rossano (der Besitzer) hat uns viel von der Toskana und Italien erzählt und für uns traditionelle italienische Carbonara zubereitet und für uns gegrillt! So haben wir zwei ganz tolle Abende mit ihm verbracht. Wir haben uns direkt dort zuhause gefühlt und sind nur schweren Herzens wieder nach Deutschland gefahren.

Absolut weiterzuempfehlen! Eine perfekte Mischung aus Entspannung, Kultur, Action und Romantik! Wir kommen wieder!
