Starting from Scratch
I'm looking for a romantic luxury hotel, most likely an old place in the country. Can anyone recommend something really nice, with pool and hire car connections to Pisa, Florence and other sights you may care to recommend.
Thanks a million.

Some romantic accommodations in the Tuscan countryside
The beautiful Tuscan countryside is a perfect place where to spend a relaxing and romantic holiday.
If you're interesting in stay nearby Florence and Pisa, you may find an accommodation in the area between Pisa-Florence-Siena.
The Chianti countryside and the hills surrounding Florence should be a good choice, moving by car.
The luxury Relais Poggio Borgoni offers charming rooms, outdoor swimming pool and a good restaurant, a few km from Florence.
In the characteristic village of San Donato in Poggio, you can find the b&b Palazzo Malaspina. It offers romantic rooms with balcony overlooking the Chianti countryside and whirpool bath.
If you prefer a self-catering proposa, the welcoming farmhouses of Il Poggetto and Il Cellese offer comfortable independent apartments and pool for a memorable quiet stay immersed in the countryside.
The Medicean Villa Dianella B&B in the Florentine hills near Vinci (yes, where Leonardo da Vinci was born!) offers luxury bedrooms and wine tastings at its wine cellars. It's about 20 minutes away from Florence and 40 min from Pisa.
I hope it's useful, do let us know whether you have any other questions!
