Italian Getaways: Our favorite affordable hotels in Tuscany

Enjoy a Tuscan view from Hotel San Luca in Cortona.

When you picture your perfect getaway, what comes to mind? Views that leave you speechless, calming activities that immerse you in nature, charming hotels that make you feel welcome… it just so happens, you’re dreaming of Tuscany!

With lush country landscapes and vineyards as far as the eye can see, Tuscany is an ideal vacation when you just need to get away from the stresses of everyday life. And although we love staying in Florence, the capital of Tuscany, sometimes you need to get out of the city to get a real feel for the region. There’s nothing like renting a car and touring the small towns and villages of Tuscany.

And while you might imagine sipping wine poolside, looking out onto the rolling hills and sleeping in a centuries-old hotel might cost you euros upon euros, Tuscany can be surprisingly affordable.

Cheapo Splurge

We adore the old-world Tuscan style at Fattoria Abbazia Monte Oliveto.

Rooms from $178 a night
Località Monte Oliveto 15, San Gimignano

While it is a bit of a cheapo splurge, the Fattoria Abbazia Monte Oliveto doesn’t offer hotel rooms — it offers apartments. With this in mind, the spacious lodgings are quite a good deal, especially with extra amenities like a swimming pool, a vibrant garden and wine and olive oil tastings. It’s located just outside of the gorgeous hill town of San Gimignano. Book your stay here.
