Casolare di Libbiano

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 November 2016 via mobile

I planned a special trip for my partner's 70th birthday and wanted to make sure that our home base lodging was extra special. Well Casolare exceeded my wishes on every count. The hosts/ chef/ owners Andrea and Berta ( she's the chef) couldn't be more welcoming and accommodating. They make you feel like this is your Home! The place itself is quaint and beautiful with rustic beams and old Italian architecture. Berta was so kind and answered several emails of mine prior to booking despite what I now know is her hectic schedule.
Even though we eat gluten free, that was no problem for her....she custom tailored her menu for us and got us gf breads for breakfast and anytime we had dinner there....poof! We were given a chef's four course delight "senza glutine " On the morning of Gregg's birthday we headed out to Venice to be gone for 2 days.....well Berta wouldn't let that pass! She baked him a gf "death by chocolate " little cake and brought it out with a candle! There's just no end to their warmth and generosity...Andrea served all the meals and his conversation and recommendations of places to go were invaluable ( especially Certaldo!....a place we probably would not have gone to otherwise). Our room was a dream...the top left photo...with a gigantic en suite bathroom....a living room with another bed for our friend who traveled with us. We even had our own private terrace.
Do yourself a favor and book this place....it's just 10 minutes outside of San Gimingano.....another treasure. The dinner meals here are outstanding! Four courses for 29 euros.....hard to beat!!
Molto Grazie Por tutti!! Andrea and Berta!

My children stayed at Il Casolare for 5 days. (My husband and I were staying at Berta and Andrea's apartment La Roccaia...also top notch) The rooms were beautiful and Berta's evening meals were outstanding! The location is so peaceful and beautiful. And both Berta and Andrea are the best hosts. I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

Room Tip: This property is a B&B....not a hotel. Would recommend any of the rooms.

My parents and I stayed at Il Casolare for 3 nights in mid August 2016 and had a great time. The property is lovely, with beautiful gardens, a swimming pool and lounges for lazy, relaxing afternoons. The hosts Berta and Andrea are really genuine, lovely people who cant do enough for you and the 4 course meals every evening are absolutely delicious - it was so special to be out in the countryside eating restaurant quality food, just beautiful. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to stay in Tuscany!

Room Tip: 'Studio' suite was lovely and had a nice terrace. Would be perfect for two people but a litt...

This was our third trip to Il Casolare and we feel like part of the family. Berta and Andrea are the most welcoming hosts, the Suite Canonica where we stayed for 10 days was extremely comfortable and quiet.

Andrea greeted us cheerfully every morning at breakfast as he made us our capuccino. We looked forward to the posting of the evening menu and anxiously awaited another magnificent meal created by Berta. The most amazing Tuscan food accompanied by their own wine. We have more pictures of food from Il Casolare than anything else.

And then there is the cooking class. Berta is so knowledgeable and so very patient as she guided 3 of us through the steps of making a zucchini appetizer which we had been served at dinner previously, the steps of making an excellent pasta, a tomato sauce which required no cooking, pollo supremo, a potato roasted with a bay leaf between the halves, and finally the art of the tiramisu. A long morning which flew by as we worked on the techniques and finally sat down to the luncheon of all that we had created.

Andrea is a storehouse of information about the area and guided us to some wonderful venues which were quiet and uncrowded. The town of Vinci with its museum dedicated to Leonardo is well worth the visit. The view across the valley toward Florence is one of the best in Tuscany.

He also had sent us to the town of Montelupo-Fiorentino on a previous trip where we connected with a ceramics business from which we now have many custom made pieces.

We felt so pampered after our 10 days, we did not want to leave.

Room Tip: The two large suites, Canonica and Dependence, in the separate building are our favorites.
