We will be be in Florence for 2 nights in April. We will have 5 nights in Tuscany on the way to Rome. Are we crazy to split our time between 2 places? My children are obsessed with staying in a castle and I am looking for somewhere to relax and hangout.

We were thinking 2 nights in Fonterutoli or Castelnuovo Bererdenga. My daughters would like to horse ride, visit hot springs and eat local food. We were then thinking of 3 nights in a relaxed farmstay - Ciciano or Vetulonia? Or can you recommend somewhere closer? Are those too far away? We don't want to be in the car all the time and I don't want to cook so need atleast one good restaurant.

The other option would be to stay at a castle and find a chilled out place near Orvieto, to spend 3 nights. Again, maybe horse riding, easy drive to a lunch etc. Maybe there is somewhere you know that ticks all the boxes and we can spend 5 nights? Ideally we will collect car in Florence or Siena and drop at Grosetto or Orvieto etc
Thank you Amanda
