    "One of the things that impressed us most is that their website is exactly as the Villa currently looks. Our apartment, Michelangelo, was immaculate with everything necessary for a home-away-from-home vacation. The Pucci family are such lovely people and always available to look after any request or answer any questions. With their help, our daily tours of the Tuscan area were made very easy and on their recommendations, we saw so much of their beautiful countryside (which I can only describe as "breathtaking"!).
    We hope to return to Villa Cafaggiolo one day and in the meantime, we highly recommend it to anyone wanting a memorable vacation in the Tuscany region." Barbara on Tripadvisor

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 Classic Tuscany landscape.

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.

    "How can you put into words the perfect month in Tuscany?? Two words: Villa Cafaggiolo!!!
    The most magnificent place to spend time in Italy. La Dolce Vita... " Betty

    "We were very happy with the Villa Cafaggiolo on a week's family holiday. I had searched through a of lovely looking villa's in Tuscany but was delighted with the end choice!
    We had a very warm welcome from Paola and we instantly hit it off.
    Paola and Niccolo were very helpful suggesting local hot spots and where to go.
    The villa is very well kept and in a very quiet little spot but close enough to the nearby towns for food, restaurants. We felt like we had the place completely to ourselves and enjoyed relaxing by the pool. I loved waking up to singing birds..." Jennifer

    "... Villa Cafaggiolo is a place to relax and unwind, to read, to sleep, to swim or sunbathe, to charge batteries before tackling the amazing Renaissance art of Florence, or the beauty of the Florentine hills and villages." William

    "... Paola is a quintessential Florentine Italian Mother. She is elegant and chic while being extremely warm and charming. Her son, Niccolo, and his wife Barbara are equally as sweet and warm. They were always available for daily planning and logistical questions.
    The villa is a loved, restored family home." Sue

    " ...the grounds are as authentic as Tuscany gets and it is as beautiful as the website pictures show. The views of the vineyards, olive trees, cypress trees and rolling hills interspersed with terracotta and gold stucco homes were absolutely breathtaking. The grounds are pretty with lavender, rosemary, thyme and rose bushes throughout..." Mary

    " Such a beautiful spot off the beaten path! The Pucci family has paid attention to every detail to make Villa Cafaggiolo the perfect place to call home while exploring Tuscany. We stayed in the Giotto Apartment. It was so cozy and welcoming.
    The architectural detail of the space is a story in itself. So well done!
    The decor is charming and filled with collectables found at local flea markets.
    The beds are beyond comfortable with wonderful crisp ironed sheets and personal down comforters designed by Paola! Genious!..." Karen

    "I could not have dreamed of a better wedding for this most beautiful couple...and all our friends and family.
    I was so impressed by the villa and the overwhelming time and effort the Pucci family put into our wedding plans. Everything..and I mean everything... was perfect.
    What a wonderful memory and one I am sure that our 32 friends and family will never forget. We owe to much to the Pucci family for all their help, warm hospitality and true excitement in the wedding plans… Thank you so much.
    We will keep in touch w/this wonderful Pucci family who has so much love to give their visitors.
    Can't say enough...There are no words to express how grateful I am to this wonderful, wonderful family.
    The apartment, with its private garden, was the perfect spot to relax after days filled with the history of a very spectacular region of Italy.
    Not only are we recommending this to all our friends, we’re planning our next trip back to the Villa." Luke

    "… recommend using services/packages they offer. Highest recommendation - the 'Tuscany Welcome Basket' with locally grown honey, olive oil, limoncello and red wine. Another recommendation - grocery food items of your choice upon your arrival so you have the initial items for breakfast, lunch, etc. (We took advantage of the Chef's night at our villa, too and you'll have food leftover for days to come). " Nick

    "Niccolň is a great host and we felt like staying with our friends.
    He was very helpful with taking care of everyone and making sure we were comfortable.
    He’s a fine example of the hospitality of the Italian Culture...
    He has an invaluable wealth of knowledge of the area, and during our stay, he suggested we visit small towns in special occasions which made our stay all the more enjoyable"
    Laura

    "I have stayed at Villa Cafaggiolo several times in the past 4 years. It is a beautiful property, perfectly situated on a commuter train line 20 minutes East of Florence. The property itself is very picturesque with all of the buildings done in Tuscan farm style. There is a lovely swimming pool and a rose garden. But what makes the experience of visiting Cafaggiolo so memorable is the warmth and friendliness and helpfulness of the owners, the Pucci family. They are always ready with a recommendation of where to eat, what to see, where to get the best gelato in Florence,etc. They truly treat the guests as if they are family, and many guests are repeat customers. They love what they do, and it shows. They are the perfect innkeepers!" Lisa
