Hi, My husband and I will be traveling in Tuscany at the end of September and will most likely continue on to Abruzzo. We are looking for a nice countryside villa/farmhouse for 3-4 nights and have narrowed down our search. We love to walk and prefer to be within walking distance to a town.
The ones we are considering are: Hotel Salivolpi (near Castellina), B&B Fagiolari (near Penzano in Chianti), and Podere San Lorenzo (near Volterra). We are trying to keep under 100 euros/night.
At this point, I think I have done a little too much research and spent too much time online to be objective. My head is spinning. However, I can say that my husband and I tend to stay away from extremely "touristy" places and enjoy discovering the "off the beaten path" gems.
