I'm daydreaming about Tuscany in the Spring time. I found a place in Siena that is an old farmhouse turned hostel where we could stay in a room for 120 Euros a night (split between 5-7 people, that's not bad!) or 25 Euros each for a bed.
Doesn't that sound wonderful? It's a large stone house with 8 rooms, gardens, surrounded by a forest of oaks.
