It is immersed in pristine and rugged natural setting rich in history and memories of the past, expressed by these cities in their art and storie and is found inside the 'Parco dell'Alta Valdera'.

Scenery and surrounds:

In the surrounding countryside you can see many charming villages and farms, some of them tumbledown - testimony of the past rural civilization. But at the same time they are reviving, transmitting and creating moments of happiness and simple emotions, which all of us desire and you feel again that the world is finally yours, this is what you will get in an agriturismo in Tuscany.

About 1.5 kilometres from our house, there is the small medieval village of Montelopio, accessible by a country road which winds in perfect harmony with the scenery, between the vineyards and olive groves, allowing you to experience the marvels of this place.

On arriving in the village, you may settle at the tables of the characteristic Perbacco (bar/delicatessen) where you can savor typical dishes or enjoy an aperitif in complete peace.

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 (500 mt), 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.

About Mr. Francesco Ruatti

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 these houses 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!

Mr. Francesco Ruatti purchased this farmhouse in 1989

Why Mr. Francesco Ruatti chose Pisa

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

Agriturismo Canale is a farm that was completely renovated in the 19th century on the beautiful Tuscan hills that border the provinces of Florence, Pisa and Siena, near the Volterra and San Gimignano regions.

It is immersed in pristine and rugged natural setting rich in history and memories of the past, expressed by these cities in their art and stories.

The hamlet of Montelopio, approximately 1 km. from villa, is a witness to history: The Etruscans, the Longobardians, the Maritime Republic of Pisa, the Knights Templar, and the noble families of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany have all left signs of their passage and their stays here on this “mountain of well-being”.

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 (500 mt), 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 want to be in direct contact with nature, there are beautiful natural trekking and mountain bike routes, and for the more athletic wishing to rediscover the joy of adventure, there are facilities just 5 km from the agritourism site for horseback riding along the attractive paths of our hills or play golf in the beautiful golf of Castelfalfi, with a 22-hole course, plus a putting green and a practice bunker.

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).

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, it is possible to visit both the Zoological Museum and the Archaeological Museum. .

There are countless itineraries of naturalistic interest which find themselves in harmony within our hills, allowing a taste of the beauty of the place and, furthermore, whenever you raise your eyes to the sky, you will see enchanting bell towers and a surprising richness of churches from across ten centuries.

In the course of a year in the town of Peccioli, there are many traditional events, with food festivals, local celebrations linked with theatre events, cultural events of great variety and of a high standard of theatre, music, dance, cinema (with special initiatives for children).

Each year the tenor Andrea Bocelli performs at the Teatro Naturale Del Silenzio (Natural Theatre of Silence).

Located near Lajatico and just 2 km from our company, it is a magical place nestled in the surrounding green hills.

Thanks to the additional presence of numerous international stars of music, the concerts attract thousands of people from all over the world.

It is a special occasion that takes place every July and which continues to charm its audiences.
