Some things I do know are that it should be uphill of anything that may contaminate it and away from surface water.
Beyond that, what should I be looking for in where to situate a well?

It will take energy to pull that water up from the ground (a windmill or pump), but once you've brought it to the surface, you can store it in a tank and then use gravity to pressurize the system. It will sit there in the tank, just waiting for you to turn a valve and let it flow. Thus, it would make sense to site your well at the top of your property.
