Tuscany - Chianti / Val d'Orcia

Jump to last reply

Hi guys,

I thought I won't flood my other topic about Positano, and start a different one.

So we are in Paris and Italy for a month for our honeymoon, and plan on spending 3 nights in Tuscany country side.

At the moment we are deciding between staying in Chianti vs Val d'Orcia. Both are charming...

Here is what we are after:

- Stunning country side, a castle-like / vineyard type of accommodation
- Pool
- Ability to walk somewhere for a great meal. We will have a car, but I want to enjoy a decent dinner with lots of wine, so not having to drive at times would be great.
- Something to explore in the area, i.e. we are thinking about a day trip to Sienna, and may be some other towns.

Budget around 150-180 euros a night.

This is the type of place we are after: http://www.tripadvisor.co.nz/Hotel_Review-g652040-d267414-Reviews-Villa_Campestri_Olive_Oil_Resort-Vicchio_Tuscany.html

It's just not in the right region.
