Affordable B&Bs in Tuscany

Last week, Daily Traveler reader Sonia3 asked: Could someone recommend a couple of reasonably priced B&Bs or farmhouses in Tuscany, preferably near San Gimignano? We are traveling in early October.

Our resident Italy expert (and Word of Mouth blogger) Ondine Cohane has some ideas:

"If you can splurge, try Borgo Santo Pietro, outside Siena and not far from San Gimignano. I stayed there last year and loved it--the property was also on our Hot List. I often check out the
section for Tuscany on; I like the edited list and agree with their selections. Another thought is the much more rustic Tenuta di Spannocchia, also outside Siena. I visited with CNT's Consumer News correspondent Brook Wilkinson a few years back, and the property made it onto our Green List. It's affordable and has beautiful grounds, and I love its ethos. Enjoy!"

We second that emotion. Got more questions? Ask Condé Nast Traveler.
