The Tuscany region
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
