Positioned in the heart of the Tuscany, Borgo di Libbiano is ideally placed for you to explore the fascinating medieval cities of Pisa, Florence, Siena and Lucca which can all be reached in less than an hour. The beautiful Tuscan beaches, Tirennia, Castiglioncello, Cecina are also within an easy drive.
The small hilltop villages around the apartments are well worth exploring and will give you a real sense of the Italian way of life (and an escape from the crowds!). If you love Italian food and wine then why not try one of our Italian cooking classes, or visit a local vineyard and sample the local Chianti or Brunello di Montalcino. Any golfers should make sure not to miss one of Italy's premier golf resort, Castelfalfi, which is just up the road from the apartments.
When you're not day-tripping you can relax by our swimming pool which has stunning views of the Tuscan countryside, make use of the communal BBQ area, or play volleyball on our court. The apartments are in the middle of a national park area so there are plenty of good walks nearby, and you may well see deer or wild boar. If you are visiting between September and November then make sure to ask about our guided truffle hunts!

Borgo di Libbiano is situated on a hilltop near the historic town of Peccioli in the province of Pisa. The apartments previously served as estate workers' dwellings, the school house, and various agricultural buildings. A Baroque Church stands in the village square although it is now only used on special religious dates during the year.
The town of Peccioli has several good restaurants and bars and is a lovely place for an evening stroll around the town walls.
Many of Tuscany's cultural and historic centres and places of interest are easily accessible by car, for example, Florence, Pisa, Siena, the Etruscan town of Volterra and the Mediaeval town of San Gimigniano with its tall towers are all nearby.
The area around Libbiano is fairly wooded and hilly with many similar hill top villages dotted around, each with their own sense of history. The sunset is particulary spectacular from the pool.
The prestigious golf course of Castelfalfi is just a short drive away and for opera lovers there is the Puccini festival at Torre del Lago near Pisa and also the Teatro del Silenzio at Lajatico
