“A lovely room, superb food & very friendly hosts.”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

We have just returned from our Italian trip and the stay at Casolare di Libbiano was a genuine highlight. Room was clean and spacious and the meals were among the best we had anywhere. If you like to run or walk in the mornings, the surrounding area has a number of trails which are well suited for the purpose. We found San Gimignano to be a very busy town - lots of people visiting - and so were very pleased to have chosen this lovely quiet haven.

If you are seeking a place to use as a base for sightseeing in Florence, this is probably not the best choice.

If you are seeking a place to use as a base for sightseeing around Tuscany, this place is great.

If you are seeking peace, quiet, tranquility, and comfort, this place is HEAVAN. I cannot describe how peaceful and sublime the property was. The long dirt road (well graded, flat, easily driven) was a sign that we were leaving civilization behind. Thick forests, chirping birds, green pastures, and abundant vineyards surround this ancient farm property. The owners were a delight, and went out of their way to make us comfortable.

San Gimignano is a 15 minute drive, with plenty of charm, shopping, and dining to keep you stimulated. There are several similar medieval villages within an easy drive as well.

No TV and no telephones are the point here, not a drawback at all.
"Il Casolare di Libianno" is Italian for "Shhhhhhhhhh...."

Very nice hotel. Its big and clean. The rooms are very nice. I even took the cooking class which was amazing because they made it from their garden and it was excellent. the dinner was a 4 course meal and was delicious.

There were a great number of positives with Casolare di Libbiano - the hosts, Berta and Andrea, were excellent, welcoming and friendly: - the room was very nice, large, tuscan rustic and clean: - the location was very quiet, and had easy driving access to most of Tuscany: - it was very nice to have the option of having supper on site: - we would also recommend a cooking lesson, a little expensive but it was close to a full day in the kitchen and provided a very nice lunch.
We were there for 5 nights and felt that the breakfasts could have had more variety from day to day, and a hot/cooked option. As well, the suppers were maybe a little expensive considering the quantity of food provided. There were also some extra costs on the bill for wine, water, coffee, etc. which were not very well explained beforehand. Lastly, the bathroom towels were way too thin for a quality B&B such as this.

We just spent 10 days in Italy and by far Casolare di Libbiano was our comfiest room and our best food. We've never had such good food in our lives. And don't forget to take Berta and Carolo's cooking class. We learned so much. Eat every dinner here and you'll go home very happy.

We just stayed four nights at this wonderful B&B in the Toscany country side. The place is really nice and clean and we were very well received by our hosts Berta and Andrea. We arrived late the first night so it was lovely to sit down at the dinner table and have a superb 4 courses menu - the food was really fantastic so don't miss the dinner. The breakfast was also very good and included Italian ham and sausages, croissant etc. We also participated in the cooking class - this can really be recommended. We spent around 3 hours in the kitchen in pleasant company with the chef Carlo and Berta - they were very good in giivng us all the small tricks to make the 4 dishes perfect. After all the hard work in the kitchen we sat down at the dining table and enjoyed the food.
The environment is very nice and the common living room is cosy. We would for sure like to come back another time so we can recommend this place.

We had only planned on staying at Casolare di Libbiano for a few days. After seeing our room, and meeting our hosts, we wanted to stay longer. We enjoyed the breakfast each morning, but must say, the dinners were unbelievably wonderful!! Berta and Andrea were the nicest, most welcoming hosts we've ever had the pleasure of meeting. We truly stayed at Casolare di Libbiano, until we had to leave, due to guests arriving to stay in "our" room. The staff was very friendly and did a great job keeping our room clean and comfortable. When we return to Italy, we will be staying with Andrea and Berta again!

Room Tip: We had the room by the pool. It was lovely! All their rooms were very nice and the entire property...
