Totally insane last-minute trip to Tuscany - where can we stay?!

Hi everyone,

My husband and I have just made the very impulsive decision to go to Tuscany in two weeks, so I need to find someplace for us to stay.

Yes, we've been there before and yes, we know how crazy this is. This is why I need your help.

A few details: We will have a car. We'd like to stay in or around either Pienza or Montepulciano. We'll be staying there from July 21st through the night of the 27th. Ideally, we'd like to spend 180 euros or less per night on the room/agriturismo.

Thank you for any ideas/help you can offer!

Thanks so much, zoecat & bobthenavigator - I'm going through them right now!

(Bobthenavigator - you helped with my last trip to Italy - what would we do without you?!)

We've stayed twice at Relais San Bruno in Montepulciano and loved it!
Cheers,
