A lovely villa in a beautiful setting. Pool was fantastic. Owners spoke good english - stayed on site so handy for tips and advice. Good shopping service before we got there. Easy to get to Florence on the train. Within easy reach of some lovely towns, Pontissieve itself quite quiet. A lovely holiday and would return.

We had a delightful family reunion at Villa Cafaggiolo in the Tuscan hills less than 10 miles from Florence. The converted farmhouse was tastefully converted into comfortable apartments. The country setting is peaceful and beautuful. The location is perfect for side trips...1/2 hour from Florence, 1 hour to Siena and Lucca, 2.5 hours to Cinque Terra. The optional Tuscan dinner...

We stayed in the Michelangelo house on the property. Super comfortable beds, quilts, pillows and quiet surroundings which made for good night sleeps. Pool was open but still too cold at beginning of May. Enjoyed sitting on the edge, soaking up the sun! Showers had good pressure. No wifi but could connect with land line for a fee (we didn't...

The villa is somewhere between the villages of Tori and Rosano in central Tuscany, about 15-20 minutes (by car) south-east from Firenze. It has a wonderful exposure towards the valley below and opposite hills, so there's no lack of sun and scenery. Upon arrival we were greeted by Paula, which is a wonderful hostess. She explained everything in patient detail,...

I really wanted to book two apartments at Villa Cafaggiolo for our family reunion, the villa looks great and it has great reviews. I had initially email the Pucci family in Sept 2011 to confirm availability of the apartment. We were advised that there was no availability. That was Ok and I moved on. In January 2012, I emailed them...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
• Villa Cafaggiolo is an ancient farmhouse placed only 12 Km east of Florence, located in the Chianti countryside, surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. It is positioned at the top of a hill in a panoramic position..., You can enjoy a great view of the valley. • Florence is only 20 minutes drive; the location is perfect if you look for a quiet peaceful country setting that is close to shops and restaurants and within easy reach of many other wonderful towns in Tuscany: Siena, Pisa, San Gimignano. • Villa Cafaggiolo is a large (about 4500 sq ft) free-standing country dwelling, constructed in the late 1700s and fully restored in 2012. • The Villa is composed of 3 luxury apartments, each a different size and shape and each completely independent of the others. Each one has its own private entrance as well as its own private garden and patio. The 3 apts. Have Air Conditioning. • Villa Cafaggiolo is very close to Florence... Only 12 km South-East, means 15/20 minutes by car. A large and comfortable road will lead you from the bustle of the City to the tranquillity of the Florentine hills. You'll drive in the Chianti area, through the countryside, along the Arno river; left and right you'll spot castles, farmhouses, old churches, vineyards olive groves... All the features of Tuscany landscape. • Access to Villa Cafaggiolo is by a private road. You will never hear the sounds of traffic (day or night) during your stay. The Villa is immersed in silence; our guests love falling asleep to the sounds of nature. This location is ideal for those wishing to visit Florence and all its glories, while at the same time experiencing the quiet and tranquility of a rural setting away from the noise of the city. • The quite big village of Pontassieve is 2 Km from the Villa. It is an attractive medieval town where you will find any kind of shops, supermarkets, banks, several very good restaurants and a shopping center.
