VILLA CAFAGGIOLO - Quick Intro:
' The Villa is a luxury farmhouse only 7/8 miles east of Florence, 20 minutes by car. It is located in the Chianti Ruffino countryside, surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. It is at the top of a hill so you can enjoy a great view of the valley.
' 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.
' The apartments are tastefully furnished with antique furniture and chandeliers and decorated with paintings and ceramics. Terracotta floors, beamed ceilings, and stone walls are everywhere. We (the Owners) used to live in this big Villa ourselves, before we divided it into 3 apartments; that is why they have a genuine Tuscan homelike feeling.
' Access to the Villa is by private road. You will never hear the sounds of traffic (day or night) during your stay. Our guests love falling asleep at night to the sounds of nature.
' All the land around Villa Cafaggiolo (2.5 acres) is completely fenced; your children will be safe in any part of the estate.
' There is a private swimming pool on the estate and also a private parking lot for your cars.
' The medium-sized village of Pontassieve is less than two miles from the Villa. There you'll find any of the shops, restaurants, supermarkets, or banks you may need.
' There is a Railroad Station in Pontassieve with trains running frequently to Florence. The fares are inexpensive and the trains are comfortable and fast. It only takes 15 to 20 minutes to get to the center of Florence. It's easy to find parking at or close to the Station.
' The Villa is strategically located close to major highways. The following are some approximate driving times from Cafaggiolo:
20 minutes: Florence and Fiesole
1 hour: San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena, Lucca, Arezzo
1.5 hours: Pisa, Assisi, Gubbio, Orvieto
2.5 hours: Roma, Venezia, Cinque Terre.
' For bargain hunters', the Gucci, Ferragamo, Armani, Valentino, Zegna, and other Outlets are just 15 minutes by car from Villa Cafaggiolo.
' Presently, we (the Owners) live on the same estate but in a separate Villa. This means you will have your privacy but, at the same time, we'll always be available to solve any problems or to offer suggestions.
' Weekly price range is from Euro 650, to Euro 1600.
Prices depends on the season, kind of apartment, the number of the people and the length of the stay.
Please, ask for further details.

Location & area
Villa Cafaggiolo is very close to Florence; just 7/8 miles east, that means 15/20 minutes by car (a large and comfortable road will lead you, through the countryside, from the City to the Villa).
If you want to have an idea about where the Villa is, take a map of Tuscany, look for Firenze, than look on the right along the river Arno and you'll find the village of Pontassieve; ideally cross the river and you get in Rosano. The Villa is settled on a hill around, just 1 miles away.
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 and bustle of the city.
Villa Cafaggiolo is immersed in silence with a private road leading to the farmhouse. You will never hear the sound of traffic (day or night) during your stay. Our guests love falling asleep to the nightly sounds of nature.
The town of Pontassieve is less than 2 miles from the Villa. It is an attractive medieval village where you will find many shops, banks, markets, several very good restaurants, and a shopping center. There is frequent train service to the center of Florence. The train takes about 20 minutes and is an easy way to travel for those who do not wish to take their car into the city. It is easy to park at or close to the Pontassieve Station.
Near Villa Cafaggiolo there are many historic places to visit:
- the 11th century Benedictine monastery at Rosano
- the Vallombrosa Abbey with its surrounding forests
- the Etruscan settlement of Fiesole with its unforgettable views of Florence
The Villa is a short distance from the most famous towns of Tuscany: 20-50 miles from Siena, Greve-in-Chianti, San Gimignano, Montalcino, Volterra, Vinci, Lucca, Pisa, Arezzo, and the beaches at Viareggio or Forte dei Marmi.
In addition, fashion-conscious bargain hunters will find the outlets of Gucci, Ferragamo, Armani, Valentino, Prada, Zegna, YSL, Dolce & Gabbana, and Fendi just seven miles away, in the town of Rignano sull'Arno.
Many people, however, come to Villa Cafaggiolo not 'to do' but 'to be;' to enjoy the tranquil location, beautiful grounds, and excellent Tuscan food. This is life as it should be, calm and unhurried; time to talk and listen to friends and family and regain one's lost vitality.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
