Recommend me accomodation in Tuscany

bobbymeister Posts: 186
Further to the thread further down about cycling in the sun, can anyone recommend me some reasonably priced (!) bike friendly accomodation in Tuscany?
I'm veering towards going in the spring, possibly alone, but more likely with my wife and two kids under five, so child friendliness is also on the agenda.
There's a massive choice of places to stay, but I'd always rather go on recommendation.
Any help much appreciated.


  • I have been to an agroturismo 5 times in between Pisa and Florence.

    I can thoroughly recommend- but the main atribute is that there are no other english visitors!

    please contact me privately on and I can give you details and it will be our secret!
    My brother rents a beautiful restored barn in god's own cycling country - actually just in Umbria (nicer than much of Tuscany) There is a pool and fantastic views, so a nice place for family to lounge while you ride.
    the older i get, the faster i was.

    I 've been several times to this campsite in southern Tuscanyand can't recommend it highly enough. Keycamp and Eurocamp go there so you can stay in a mobile home. It's ideal for kids with a fabulous swimming pool fed bya natual spring. There are plenty of hills and an extinct volcano in one direction and flat rides if you go the other way. Quiet roads and lots of wildlife too in the Val D'Orcia.
