It is located at 400 m above sea level between olive trees, chestnut trees, vineyards, fruit plants, and mainly cherry trees. The garden is huge and has wooden tables to have breakfast or lunch outside. The 13 x 6-m pool is located 50 m away from the villa. The apartments are different in size, between 110 and 50 m² and have 2/3 bedrooms, a kitchen/dining room and a bathroom. The pieces of furniture come from our and some are antique pieces. For additional information about this place, please read the detailed description. Another apartment sleeping 4 (2 bedrooms) is currently under renovation. This one has an entrance opening onto the loggia. It is not available on this website yet. It will be ready in May.
The apartment is part of a 13th-century villa (Le Pozze) that has been renovated in Renaissance style. It is located at 350-400 m above sea level, in the middle of the countryside among plants, cherry trees, and olive trees.

The 2nd floor apartment is about 120 m² and features 3 bedrooms (2 master bedrooms and another one with 2 beds), 2 bathrooms, a large kitchen/dining room for 10 people, and a living room with a fireplace, a sofa, armchairs, and 4 windows. There are family pieces of furniture from the beginning of the 20th century, including some antique pieces. The roof is insulated and has a mansard in the typical Florentine style: with terra cotta bricks and chestnut wood. You can visit our website where you’ll find our photo album.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1890
This family-owned house has been a kind of refuge for 4 generations of Florentines, a family of artists and potters (the Cantagalli family). The building was renovated between 1995 and 2000. The earliest information we have about the villa dates back as far as 1246, in Giotto's time. The villa is mentioned regarding the obligations the former owners, the Asinis, had towards the monastery of Florence.
The main point of interest is the story of the house and its owners; starting from the Ademari family, the Asini family in Florence, the Dalle Pozze family from Dicomano, and the 19th-century Cantagalli family (very famous for its artistic pieces of pottery in Florence), which are the current owners. Cantagalli pieces of pottery are still present in the house of the owner. There is a fresco in the Giotto apartment, from an unknown, probably 15th or 16th-century artist, representing the Madonna with a child holding a small bird in his hand.
Le Pozze est une grande et très ancienne propriété restaurée avec beaucoup de goût. Les appartements sont bien séparés sur trois niveaux et permettent une totale indépendance. Elle est située en pleine nature dans un cadre magnifique de forêts de châtaigniers, de vignes et d'oliviers. La piscine, à une cinquantaine de mètres de la villa, est très agréable et offre une belle vue sur les collines tout comme la charmante loggia.
Le Mugello est une partie magnifique de la Toscane ; moins connue que d'autres, elle est restée très authentique et reposante, même en plein été.
Florence est à 45 minutes ; la route y menant via Fiesole découvre des panoramas superbes. A 4 km le village de Dicomano offre tous les commerces et services ainsi qu'une gare la reliant à Florence.
L'accueil de Paolo, le propriétaire, est remarquable par sa simplicité, sa gentillesse et son discret souci du bon séjour de ses locataires.
Alberto, le cuisinier, également d'une grande gentillesse et disponibilité, sert sur demande une délicieuse et typique cuisine régionale dans la cour de la villa ou dans la fraîcheur de la salle à manger. Parlant l'un et l'autre italien, français et anglais, ils contribuent grandement à la convivialité et à la douceur des lieux.
Notre séjour de deux semaines nous a ravis et nous y retournons cette année.

Villa Le Pozze is located in the municipality of Dicomano, 4 km away from the city centre and 35-40 km away (45 minutes) from Florence, in the valley of the Sieve River and in the Mugello region to the north of Florence. It is an agricultural area, particularly dedicated to wine producing, olive growing, cattle and sheep breading, and the production of sweet chestnut wood with the famous “Mugello chestnut”. The Sieve River is the most important tributary of the Arno River. In its catchment basin lies the Bilancino reserve, where you can go sailing, fishing, etc. The Mugello race circuit is located in the same region. On this circuit, in June, is held the Moto GP World Championship. A train, which stops in Dicomano, connects the valley with Florence, and there is also a motorway towards Bologna, Rome, Arezzo, Lucca, Pisa-Viareggio, and Siena.
