“Spectacular and charming”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Casa Lari is spectacularly situated with incredible views, and the apartments are quaint and you won't want for anything.
Andrea who runs the place couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The apartment we stayed in had a bedroom, a dining area and kitchen (with every utensil you can think of) and a sofa bed. Everything was spotlessly clean, and the view from the balcony is wonderful. It is a 5 minute drive fom San Gimignano which is a beautiful little medieval town and well worth a visit. I would definately go back.

We could not have chosen a better place for the Tuscany portion of our trip....charming, immaculate, peaceful and remote yet easy route for our day trips, and more! Andrea was so pleasant, helped us with the laundry and every little question we had! The place has only 10-ish apartments, and is surrounded by an olive orchard, overlooking the Valley of Elsa. We had the 2 bedroom apartment, which was very spacious. We even cooked in the kitchen one night for a simple pasta meal. I enjoyed my morning coffee and my evening wine on the balcony, overlooking the pool and the valley. We slept with the doors open!

The AC worked well, the showers worked well, the mattresses were perfect, the breakfast was very generous. The kids enjoyed having some TV time, too.

THank you, Andreas!

Room Tip: The apartments on the end (by the pool) gave us the best panoramic views.

We stayed at Casa Lari and found it to be perfect in every way. We had the 2-bedroom villa, and it was such a charming base for our day trips in the area. Two brothers (both handsome and charming!) run the place; everything was spotlessly clean, and our breakfast pastries, coffee, milk and juice were replaced each afternoon for the following morning. They recommended the restaurant just about a 2-minute-walk away, Restauranti Leonetta (not sure about the spelling) and it was excellent! EVERYONE WAS JUST SO WELCOMING AND FRIENDLY! My 92-year-old mother and I visited with a good (American) friend who lives near Venice, and we found everything to be just wonderful. I would love to return with my husband for a more romantic trip! STAY HERE! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!! ENJOY!

Room Tip: We chose the 2-bedroom villa because it suited our needs; I think you'd be happy whatever room y...

Stayed here with friends for a week and found it perfect for our needs: Clean and spacious apartment, well equipped kitchen, nice balcony with a view over the Toscanan landscape, in the midst of a small village with friendly people.
The management was very friendly and gave good advice on opportunities around. Nice to live a bit away from the touristic attractions, yet close enough to all the must sees of the region by car.

Would recommend anytime, and would definitely return!

PS bring earplugs with you if you are very sensitive to sounds, we had a family with a small baby living next door and noticed that we slept better in the mornings WITH the plugs... : )

I have stayed at Casa Lari in Sept for 3 nights, as we planned to visit San Gimignano, Pisa, Lucca and Florence during our stay there, the location was perfect. It’s only 10 mins drive to San Gimignano, 50 mins to Pisa and Lucca, and 10 mins to Certaldo train station where we catch a train to Florence (1 hour train ride). Compare to the other accommodation I stayed near Siena afterwards where I paid almost double of what I’ve paid at Casa Lari, Casa Lari is great value!

The apartment was clean and spacious, towels are changed daily, the view from the bedroom balcony was magnificent, we had breakfast there every morning. The daily breakfast basket include juice, water, milk, grind coffee powder (there is a coffee make in the kitchen), pie, bread, jams, butter …. etc. There is an in-room safe right behind the bedroom door. The kitchen carried full set of utensils, pots and pans (different sizes), and a small oven to reheat your pie or make toast.

My stay at Casa Lari was very pleasant, I would highly recommend it to anyone who’s planning to visit Tuscany.

One suggestion to make it perfect would be WIFI internet, that would allow us to carry out our travel research and also clear up our backlogged work e-mails.

We got lost looking for this great find. There are a couple Casa Lari's on Google Maps. This is in the small town of Pancole, right hand side after the church.
The women at check in was so friendly and gave us a bottle of wine at check-in. We had a top floor unit. It had a large family room with fold out sofa and a bedroom with a king size and a beautiful balcony. The bathroom was large. Everything was spotless. There was a safe. A breakfast basket was brought up each day. It consisted of orange juice, milk, jams, pastries and bread. The full kitchen was a bonus. We only used the fridge. Underground secure parking was great. We went into San Gimignano in the early evening when not too many tourist were around. The sunset view from the park is incredible! I wish we had time to use the pool. (It closes at 7pm) We stayed 2 nights. It is a 1 hour drive to Florence. Right down the street on the right side there is an Agriturismo that has wine and olive oil tasting. We really enjoyed our time there and bought 2 bottles. (Wish I could remember the name! And I wish I bought some white wine too).

Casa Lari was amazing and very secluded. It is a B&B setting. The owners do not stay at the inn. It is a very comfortable place to come back to at the end of long day exploring the countryside. All of the room have there own private entrance and it is very clean and well kept. Also, at the hotel across the street there is a very good restaurant
