Chianti is a great area to base yourself in while in Tuscany. It is centrally located between Florence and Siena, so day trips around the area as easy and quick to do. Basing yourself in Chianti will also give you the chance to experience the countryside while being close to all of the main destinations in Tuscany.
Now, where to stay at? A farmhouse or villa apartment? A bed and breakfast in a villa or in a small village? It all depends what you're looking for... a pool, perhaps? Then it is more likely to be better enjoyed outside of a town, with a great vista to enjoy while in the pool!
Do you want to be close to a town so that you can walk to a restaurant in the evening and walk back? Or do you prefer to stay at a farmhouse with its own restaurant? These are just some of the options as to what you'll find available, including rustic farmhouses as well as luxury resorts. There is something for everyone, for every taste and every budget.
