“vacation inntuscany”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

we spent two nice and quiet nights at this cozy and rustic farmhouse during our trip in april, 2013 as part of our 40th anniversary....a pleasant, quiet change from florence, rome and venice!!
accomodations were comfortable and quaint, berta and andrea were friendly and accomodating and food was always fresly prepared and delicious. may be difficult to find after dark as as libbiano is small, signs are not well seen and roads are winding.

will definitely return if we visit tuscany again. thank you andrea and berta for contributing great memories of our 40th anniversary! grazia per la vostra cortesia!

We went to this inn on the recommendation of a dear friend and there is simply no way that we can thank her enough! Our hosts Berta & Andrea make you feel as if you are family- maybe better than family, as they are extremely attentive and anxious to make sure that you enjoy yourselves. The inn is well located near San Gimignano in a lovely setting. Our room was fantastic. The breakfasts were wonderful. You need to reserve dinner, but it is. well worth it . Berta is a fabulous cook and the dinners were as good as any five star restaurant. The inn is a 13th century farmhouse which has been lovingly restored by Berta & Andrea. We cannot wait to return.
If you are looking for excitement & action this is not the place for you. If, however, you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing setting with charm and natural beauty then this is your place!

I read some of the negative reviews of Casolare di Libbiano just for fun and you know what, the people writing them aren't lunatics. If you want to be pampered and dazzled by the sweetest modern amenities this is not the place for you. This is more like a couple of really nice talented people who opened their home because they wanted to share the food, the home, the art and the tranquil way of life they love. The food is impossibly amazing and indulgent but in a relaxed way. They aren't trying to prove how wonderful it is...it just is. It is true that it is located down a rather whacky and long dirt road but I really like that and it was totally easy to drive. The wine is fantastic and plentiful and the hosts are like a great pair of friends that know when to offer help and when to leave you alone. The artwork is certainly a bit moody, perhaps even dark but in a thoughtful, authentic way. The furnishings are certainly not the usual generic hotel stuff but they belong and for me they are part of a real charm that you really can't find very easily.

Casolare Di Libbiano was the site of a wonderful week of my honeymoon and my wife and I were both delighted. Berta and Andrea and the rest of the staff are welcoming, warm and very helpful.
The room was large and comfy, with a private terrace.
The food is outstanding - I recommend the cooking lesson with Constantino!
Great location to explore Tuscany. This place is wonderful! Bring a swimsuit and walking shoes! You will love it.

My wife and I stayed at Il Casolare di Libbiano in Sept, 2012. The owners and the staff (especially Clarissa!) are gracious and quite charming. We loved our quiet suite just off the private terrace on the ground floor of this lovely and beautifully remodeled farmhouse; just minutes from San Gimignano. The private outdoor terrace also forms part of the huge, fragrant herb garden, from which the house chef draws fresh ingredients for his sumptuous dinners each evening. Each night (the best meals of our entire trip to Italy were at Casolare!) we enjoyed a wonderful (alfresco weather permitting......which it usually was) four-course dinner created from fresh, local ingredients. I recommend the house red wine.....delicious and the least expensive (€12) on the wine list. The owner greeted us each morning with a great outdoor breakfast.

The only negative I can think of is the slightly "reluctant" toilet in our suite.

This location was perfect for taking day trips to: San Gimignano (15 minutes), Volterra (45 minutes), Siena (45 minutes), Lucca (90 minutes), and Montalcino (90 minutes). Florence (where we began our trip) is 90 minutes north.

I recommend this B&B highly! If we come to Tuscany again, Il Casolare di Libbiano will definitely be part of our itinerary!

My wife and I spent three nights at this delightfull retreat in October 2012 . We had read about it on the Internet and were very impressed by its write up . Although very difficult to find it was worth the drive along an unmade track . What a surprise to find this well appointed renovated farmhouse at the end of a long days drive through the amazing Tuscany countryside.! Andrea is a superb host and the cuisine outstanding, well up to expectations . However having read the marketing brochure on the web it was rather disappointing not to have been introduced to Berta who seemed to be occupied with other things although she is apparently a superb cook in her own right! Constantino the chef certainly produced some impressive meals and should be encouraged to mix more with the guests along with Berta when she is present. Full marks to you Andrea for keeping a very comfortable establishment in the most beautiful rural setting . we wll certainly recommend to our friends and return one day soon. Chris and Sheryl ...

Room Tip: Choose one in the main house , the annex has difficult stone steps and no hand rail!

About 10 minutes outside of San Gimignano is a quiet restored farmhouse made welcoming by Berta and Andrea. The location is conveniently to many Tuscan hill towns when you can tear yourself away from Il Casolare's serene setting and tasteful decor. But it feels comfy and cozy when you do return and share the delicious and artfully prepared dinner with the other guests, always interesting and an eclectic assortment of travelers. Our hosts and the staff are always ready, willing and able to be helpful.

Can't wait to return.
