For under $100 a night, you can drink in the Tuscan sun from your very own farmhouse. Close to the towns of San Gimignano and Volterra, Casa Quintino is about an hour from Florence, Pisa, and Siena. The renovated farmhouse retains its old world charm while offering modern amenities such as Internet access and modern bathrooms. The property includes a ruined Benedictine chapel, oak forests teeming with wildlife (and truffles!), and a natural spring. Rates vary between $80 and $105 per night, depending on the season.
