Great holiday at Borgo Libbiano
We had a lovely time at Donatello apartment. Benedetta and her family were very kind and helpful! The apartment and facilities were great , The beds are good, the pool was very clean and nice. Great views. We appreciated the peace. We would recommend this property to friends.
A Great time was had by One and All
Arrive Saturday we went shopping on route to Libbiano, when we arrived at the apartment and were met by Carl and Naomi, with a little welcome pack, and a smile. The apartment was well maintained it was clean and tidy, beds made, ready for some weary travellers.
Carl and Naomi provided an excellent service by updating us on the days weather and what was happening within the local area, such as the 61st anniversary of the Bike race around peccioli.
They passed on some sightseeing tips, local areas of interests, and some golfing information for us both. We then spent the week walking and driving around the beautiful sights of Tuscany.
We have recommended this holiday to our family and friends.
In 5 Stunden von Zürich erreicht man Libbiano und ist mitten in der Toskana. Pisa, Livorno, Florenz sind in rund einer halben Stunde erreicht. Das Appartement ist sauber und zweckmässig eingerichtet. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten hat es viele im Umkreis von 10 Minuten. Viele Einkehr Möglichkeiten gibt es in den Dörfchen rund um Libbiano und kann man so die „Italianita“ geniessen. Der zur Anlage gehörende Pool machte mir einen Gepflegten Eindruck und lädt im Sommer sicher zum „dolce far niente“ ein. Alles in allem, war das ein gelungener Urlaub.
Wir kamen zu fünft nach Libbiano um von dort aus Motorradtouren zu unternehmen, wir wurden sehr freundlich empfangen, Libbiano liegt etwas abgeschieden, sehr Ruhig auf einer Anhöhe von der aus man rundherum einen wunderschönen Ausblick Genießen kann.
Die Gesamte Anlage hat ein toskanisches Flair und unsere Wohnung im Erdgeschoss mit Gartensitzplatz war sehr geräumig uns stilvoll eingerichtet, wir fühlten uns sofort wohl. Ein Tipp ist sicher die Sternwarte 50m von der Anlage entfernt Nachts zu besuchen oder das Gourmet Restaurant Petto Rosso ca. 10 min. von Libbiano entfernt.
Uns hat dieses traumhaft gelegene Ferienresort super Gefallen und wir werden gerne wieder kommen!

- Outside: The pool and terraces offer a very tranquil location for enjoying truly outstanding views of the Tuscan countryside. The Borgo itself is centred around the ‘Aia’, an area where the people who used to work the estate would eat together. This area is now used for communal eating where there are barbecue facilities. Libbiano is situated at the top of a hill surrounded by a game reserve on one side and olive groves on the other. The asphalt road leading up to the Borgo is lined on both sides by an imposing avenue of cypress trees, so typical of Tuscany.
