We rented the Brunelleschi apartment. It was exactly what I had hoped it would be...just lovely. The apartment was charming, clean, very spacious with a beautiful view of the gardens and... More

Villa Cafaggiolo exceeded our expectations. The views were stunning and the apartment and location were fantastic, but what made our stay so amazing was the wonderful hospitality that we received. The pasta and sauce on arrival was delicious and the thorough information pack was invaluable. Niccolo and his family were always available if needed. I would highly recommend purchasing some...

This is a lovely place to spend some relaxing time and also a good base to see Florence and other places around Tuscany.

We had a 6 week stay in the Bruneschelli apartment from mid August to late September 2016, and couldn't have been happier with it.

Perfect house, great location and above all wonderful hospitality by Pucci family. Tours organised by Nicolo are highly recommended. Also, we can recommend the traditional Tuscan products offered by Pucci family and their neighbours, which could be included in the offer. The home made meal prepared by owner was also excellent.

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. In Pontassieve there is a rail station; there is frequent train service to the center of Florence.
