The most relaxing places in Tuscany?

I'm looking for locations with the most relaxing atmosphere in Tuscany.  Places that are photo-worthy, too.  I'd also like to know what the best hotels are, and the best seasons to visit Tuscany.

Cinque Terre!! 5 brightly colored, gorgeous fishing villages that jut into the sea. It is in the Ligurian area, known for wine, lemoncello, capers, and happiness. If you find hiking relaxing, each village is connected by amazing trails. Vineyards to the right, ocean to the left, and the best scented air anywhere! Easily accessible by train from Florence and Pisa.

You absolutely have to visit the Isola d'Elba in the springtime: sea, nature, fantastic light, bright colours, silence, peace and delicious food!

If you can rent your own villa with a pool, you cannot really get much more relaxing than that.

We stayed in a great place within a few minutes walk of Gaiole, a cute little Tuscan town.  We could also easily drive to FlorenceSienaPisa and San Gimignano which was very picturesque.  

We were there in the summer so it was hot and the major tourist attractions were crowded but we could relax by the pool and walk to town for coffee and groceries and cooked quite a few meals ourselves.

Florence is particularly amazing for taking photos. Make sure you get up to some of the overlying areas like Fiesole and Piazzale Michelangelo to get incredible views and photo ops.

I will also recommend you to visit the Abbey of Sant'Antimo( and Montalcino, the village nearby. It's very peaceful and beautiful. Of course, you can also visit Siena, San Quirico d'Orcia, Pienza and San Gimignano.

Hi,  I just got home from Tuscany and relaxing...about anywhere in the countryside.  Florence and Venice had hoards of people. I think July and August are really busy too with tourists. September was warm, not too hot.  Try airbnb for a rental...these are people renting an apartment or a room, through an organisation.  We had pretty good luck with airbnb, reasonable pricing,and you can have your own kitchen to make your morning coffee or a lunch, We took a cooking class....try Chef Ryan in Tuscany ( or Cortona) if you're interested in that.  His wife Debora took us touring for a day at a reasonable price.  Good luck
