Hi all

My wife and I are travelling to Tuscany in mid September 2015 for the first time. The last 2 nights of our 9 night vist will be spent in Florence. For the first 7 nights, we would like to rent accommodation in a location that allows for easy access to the Chianti and val d'orcia areas. Can you please suggest a suitable location and perhaps even some suggested b&bs.

Also, with 7 days and a car, what itenerary can you suggest to ensure we make the most of our time and vist the key attractions of the areas.
