Hi there =)
My partner and I would like to visit Tuscany next summer and although we want to see the sights of Florence, (without a doubt!) we would like to try something a little different and possibly stay somewhere a little more rural in the Chianti region and just do a day trip into Florence and Siena also.
Greve in Chianti seems like a wonderful place to base ourselves, however we will not have a car, instead replying on public transport. Can anyone advise on the best villas/farmhouses to stay at?
We don’t mind splashing out on a higher-end place, if this helps, however obviously will need be somewhere we can travel to on foot, or is well connected with buses/trains.
Or do you think this is defeating the purpose of staying somewhere rural if we can’t stay too far outside of a town/village? Happy to stay in Florence and do day trips from there if it’s a wiser alternative.
Obviously we are only in the very beginning planning stages of your trip so happy to take any and all advice!!!
Thank you very much
