I came here with my partner and we had a fantastic time! The apartments are at the top of a hill so you get a great view whilst your sipping wine on the deckchairs. There are lots of lovely little villages nearby to explore and we did day trips to San Gimignano, Volterra, Pisa and Florence as well as a few days relaxing by the pool.
We will be coming again next year!
We have just returned from an absolutely fabulous two weeks in Libbiano, Tuscany. We stayed in the Cellini which was immaculate. It was perfectly sized for the four of us (2 adults and 2 children) as it had two bedrooms and two bathrooms plus a large open plan living/dining/kitchen and a (useful) laundry room. It also had its own private patio garden for dining, plus use of the shared 'aia. It was well equipped, with possibly the biggest TV I've ever seen, (although we were out looking at the awesome views and didn't watch it).
Carl and Naomi who manage the apartments were friendly and welcoming, giving lots of good advice on places to go and practical things. They were always there to be helpful and fun, but in a good friendly way and never too much!
You need a car to stay in this area as it is not walkable to shops, but this was not a problem for us as we wanted to be out and about seeing all that Tuscany has to offer. Libbiano is situated within an hour of many of the major attractions and we enjoyed days at the beach, in the city and just chilling by the pool.
Highlights were the amazing views from the pool and garden, seeing inside the old church, the great people we met and the bread man coming in the morning! Our kids (aged 7+9) would say the pool!
I can't recommend Borgo Libbiano enough.
Libbiano is in a perfect spot up a cypress tree lined drive, a quiet village with a group of apartments clustered round a beautiful local church and square with a small commune of local people too. Sheila and Steve,s apartments are beautiful, restored with the best of original materials and are situated around the most fantastic swimming pool
Near to the delightful small town of Peccioli and in striking distance of Pisa,Florence,Volterra,Lucca we had a brilliant time staying during whit week . Carl and Naomi look after all the guests so well too.
