Spend a unique holiday experience at the Casolare di Libbiano farmhouse near San Gimignano.
The farmhouse has five double bedrooms, each with its own private bathroom and two suites that have a living room, private bathroom and terrace. All rooms enjoy a spectacular view of the surrounding Tuscan countryside.
The bed and breakfast's common areas include the sitting rooms and terraces where guests enjoy meals and can relax reading, listening to music or chatting with newfound friends, as well as the outdoor swimming pool where guests can relax on the sun beds.
The village of "Libbiano" is located on the top of the "Monte Castagno". Its origins date back to XII century when "Messere Borgatello" gave the "Camaldolesi" friars the Church of "San Pietro" so that the whole village could become a monastery.
During the passing of the centuries, the monastery was transformed into a farm and, in the XV century, was property of the "Ardinghelli", one of the most important and famous families of San Gimignano. Since then, "Libbiano" was transformed into a wine and olive oil farm.
The Casolare di Libbiano was just a tiny part of this farm, and it is interesting to walk around with some knowledge of its history.
The bed and breakfast offers guests a swimming pool, a garden, mountain bikes and homemade dishes made with fresh local ingredients.
The area is surrounded by woods, with paths for both walking and biking. Casolare di Libbiano offers guests mountain bikes for anyone wishing to explore the area on two wheels.
There is a golf course about 15km from the bed and breakfast and horseback riding stables and tennis courts within 10km from the property.
