About the property

IT7187

Positioned half way between Pisa (airport 25 minutes) and Florence (40 minutes) , Borgo di Libbiano is ideally placed for exploring most of the historic sites of Tuscany. The fascinating medieval cities of Florence, Siena and Lucca can all be reached in less than an hour. Volterra, San Gimignano are reached in 30 min. The beautiful Tuscan beaches, Tirennia, Castiglioncello, Cecina are a 40 minute drive away. Libbiano is also a golfers paradise; 4km away is Castelfalfi the premier golf resort in Italy with 18 hole and 9 hole courses. The apartments are within a dedicated national park area where you will see deer and wild boar in the mornings. All four apartments have their own outdoor space and are fully furnished in a contemporary Italian style. The infinity pool and the terraces around it enjoy a superb view of typically Tuscan countryside. The apartments themselves have recently been restored to a very high standard.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here last year with my partner and would love to return soon. The apartments were immaculate. The views at the complex were beautiful and we enjoyed having a BBQ some nights on site while watching the sunsets. We also spent one night being shown the fire flies by one of the locals!

From Libbiano, It was only a 5 minute drive to a lovely Tuscan hilltop village of Peccoli which had some excellent places to eat. It was also easy enough to get to the surrounding tourist attractions like Florence and Pisa.

Notes:
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.
