We were out on a 10 day EuroTrip and we landed up in Casolare di Libbiano after the first 4 exhausting days. I have to say, our best experience in our entire trip to Italy were the 2 nights we stayed here
Early mornings with great breakfast spread, lazy afternoons & lovely evenings. It was perfect. It was truly a paradise for us.
We are vegetarians, and Berta/Andrea took extreme care in making sure they prepared the best Veg Italian Dishes. They had a 4 course meal, and Andrea explained to us each dish that was prepared by them. Lot of them were experiments, which were very unique. Presentation was top notch.. Our Check out was early morning at 7 AM, while their breakfast opens at 7:30.. So they laid out breakfast for us the night before so that we could have breakfast before we left (which 5 star hotel does that?!)
And San Gimignano is a great town nearby with a small marketplace with coffee shops & restaurants.
Small points for people willing to stay here.
They don't have TV's or iPod Docks inside your rooms. They are bare bone but very clean. I've seen some complain for the lack of modern amenities, but we were just fine without them. Its a retreat from the daily hustle and bustle. I'm sure guests and do without them for a few days.
The cellphone reception is kinda poor. So you should keep that in mind.
Be sure to ask for the La Rossa Room if available. Its the one that overlooks the front courtyard. We stayed in that room, and its lovely especially in the mornings.
The only reason why we gave a star less to the overall rating was because the fans are too slow (They have ceiling fans)..And it gets sweaty during the day and even night during Summer.
This was our first ever trip to Italy, and CdL made it very memorable. All in all a great package. I would love to get my parents to this place the next time.
