I am looking for a place to stay/eat a few days in late April in Tuscany with my parents. (I know it is coming up quick!)
From Florence, we are going to rent a car and then drive around the region for a 3 nights/4 days. There will be four of us traveling. A little apartment style place or something would be great, but I don't know if it is typical of agriturismi. Having lived here for years, I have of course been to Tuscany many times but just stayed at hotels in Montalcino, etc. I know it has gotten very touristy, but they haven't seen it.....
I have seen a few suggestions on this site, but they were for weddings and/or honeymoons and thus a bit too fancy for this trip. My parents just want an opportunity to take some nice walks, eat some rustic food, and perhaps spend an afternoon in Siena. We don't want to spend the whole day on the farm, so maybe we aren't looking for the typical agriturismo experience, just a nice, relaxing place to stay with good food and pretty views.
I have been looking at www.agriturismo.com for days, and it is a bit overwhelming to me. Could anyone recommend affordable places? (200 euro a night for 4) I have friends who say you can find something like that in Umbria. Perhaps 200 euro for 4 would cover just housing and not food. In any case, any suggestions would be much appreciated!!!
