Help! Agriturismo location Italy

It seems the more research I do the less decisive I become. I started out looking for an agriturismo in the Val 'd Orcia. I am looking for a working farm, no more than 10 rooms, breakfast with an option for dinner, and would like to be able to stay less than a week. I was feeling good about a couple of options I found around Pienza and Montepulciano; however the Pienza location requires a full week. Then, I stumbled across what appears to be a nice option 5km north of Siena.
So, my question to fellow fodorites - Have you had agriturismo experience in the Tuscany area that you can recommend? Cost is a consideration but not necessarily a show stopper. I think all of the places were priced less than 170 euro per night. How do the locations compare around Siena compared to the area further south around Pienza or Montepulciano?
My plan is to day trip around the area regardless.

Thanks!

It depends what you want to see and how much time you want to spend in the car. We just spent a week at a place outside montepulciano and loved the location. But our goal was to see the Val d'Orcia. Siena was about an hour away and we didn't want to spend that much time in the car. You can click on my name to read the trip report.

Meant to add...working farms where I have seen them rarely do full service as they don't have time to cook and serve etc. most are self catering

Thanks Jamikins. I did read your trip report with great enthusiasm. A good point to consider about time in the car. We do like our wine
