Hi,
We leave on the 25th of May--9 more days. Just thought I'd try getting a few more people's input.

We ended up finding a place just outside of Castellina--Poderi Val Verde.

I'm practically counting the minutes until take-off.

I should add--we will spend a few nights in Pienza as a result of comments made on this thread. Thanks everyone!

Then, we'll spend a week at Brigolante near Assisi, after we are through with Chianti area and southern Tuscany.

Thanks.

We've just returned. I'm at work with no time to respond with details. But will post something within the week, I hope.

The trip was great!!!

I didn't check DM's screen name for a link -but have CHOSEN for Tuscany and Chianti is it - So I revived this to get more comments... Thought of doing a daytrip to Lucca/Pisa from Florence, but can do it from here if we choose one of the links below...

thinking of http://www.agriturismosanlorenzo.it/...h/1_2_eng.html or

http://www.fagiolari.it/eng_index.htm

owned by the same family and for some reason they really both stick out at me.

DM - you out there? Anyone else with views on Chianti??

Hi, Travelphile

I'm here! I really like what I see on the two links you have provided. These places remind me very much of where we stayed just north of Castellina in Chianti. I would recommend where we stayed: Podere Val Verde

We stayed at a wonderful, inexpensive B&B for a few nights in Pienza. I would recommend it, too.

When are you going?

We have chosen the Fagiolari for 4 nights - we'll be there the last week of October. Thanks for the hints though - the toughest things left to decide are how to spend our 4 wonderful days!
