LIVING OUTDOOR - Cafaggio di Sopra is located in a dreamy green paradise, in an open and dominant position, on the crest of a hill (406m) above the Arno valley, guaranteeing coolness also during the long Florentine summers.
With a glance it's possible to linger over Florence or to chase the soft profiles of the surrounding hills.
The southern exposure and east and west openess render the place particularly light from the first rays of sunrise to the palpitating sunset in the evening. Even the night is an emotion. The sky is a sea of stars and in the silence, listening attentively, it's possible to “hear the grass grow”.
To reach our villa you will need a car. From there you can easily reach out for Florence and all the most fabulous location in Tuscany (like Siena, Pisa, San Gimignano and so on).
A handy local train reach Florence in 15min leaving from the nearest village (10min by car). The train arrives directly in center town!
