About The Owner

Professor of Applied Geology at the University of Florence, with a French Doctorate in France (in Montpellier, in 1971), I am currently retired. I love painting, antiques, and pottery.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1890

Why The Owner chose Florence Area

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

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.
