Villa hotels in Val d'Orcia
I am travelling to Tuscany for my honeymoon, and for part of our trip I would like to stay in a villa for 2-3 nights in Val d'Orcia. Ideally, it would be nice to stay somewhere not completely remote with a small village and a couple restaurants within walking distance. Does anyone have any recommendations?

A place to stay in Val d'Orcia
Though maybe not exactly walking distance, I believeyou will find this place to offer the perfect atmosphere for a honeymoon - with great views, delicious wines and the nearby town is Montalcino .... which in my opinion is dreamy. I suggest you give a look at Agriturismo Bartoli Giusti
I also suggest you look at this article about San Giovanni in Poggio written by Lourdes when she stayed there, it is a lovely place with incredible views of Val d'Orcia.

Authenticity is the real luxury in Tuscany
Hi there! I notice is an old thread, but I would love to answer.
My suggestion for you (and other travelers like you) is to choose a relaxing place with a stunning landscape. I mean, if I was you I will surely look for something authentic. I think authenticity is the real luxury in Tuscany. If you think so my choice would be Villa Ciggiano.
If you love to stay in a little village I suggest Montaione with its charming little and tuscan weekly food market (or Iano di Montaione if possible, I don't know if there are any kind of accommodation there), Montefioralle, Certaldo or Monteriggioni.
If you like almost a little city, the best base city in Tuscany, in my opinion, are Pistoia and Lucca.
