About Niccolò Pucci

CIAO,

thank you for checking out my listing.

I’m Niccolò, I was born and grew up in Florence and I still live in this wonderful city.

I’m an architect and since years, I manage holiday villas-apartments in Florence town and in the hills around.

What I like?

Horses, Nature, Hiking, Trail Running, Cooking… and I love to interact with new people from different parts of the world.

My family owns the Villa Cafaggiolo estate since almost 50 years; it took a long time and a hard work to transform and old farmhouse (abandoned in the sixties) into an amazing, comfortable villa as it is now.

We began this business of renting our apartments in Villa Cafaggiolo, in 1998… so we are hosting and meeting people for all over the world, since 20 years now!

We’ve got 180 EXCELLENT REVIEWS on TRIPADVISOR (and many more in other web sites); 100% travelers recommend!!!

We hope to meeting you too, very soon.

You can call or email me anytime with questions or for recommendations; I’m available for information regarding restaurants, museums, shops, tours and anything else that you may need to make your stay more enjoyable.

I’ll do my best to let you spend a fantastic time here!!!

Best,

Niccolò and the Pucci’s

................................................................

"""Niccolò 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 on Tripadvisor

Niccolò Pucci purchased this farmhouse in 1971

Why Niccolò Pucci chose Bagno a Ripoli

"" 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 on Tripadvisor

What makes this farmhouse unique

"" 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 on Tripadvisor

We will definitely return! ""

Perfect for a Family of Four

  • 5 of 5

We almost didn't book until we saw that there were over 140 other awesome reviews on another travel site. We're really happy we booked. The house was perfect and Niccolo and his family are so nice and so attentive. Barbara made dinner for us the first night and it was a great way to end a full day of travel. It's a short train ride from Florence which is great because it's nice and quiet with the exception of the birds in the trees...which I liked. Just relaxing. Washing machine, wifi downstairs, 2 bathrooms and AC in each bedroom made it a very comfortable stay. Thanks Niccolo. We'd love to come back on our next trip to Italy!

• PLEASE, ASK FOR FURTHER DETAILS...

• Villa Cafaggiolo is very close to Florence... only 12 km South-East, means 15/20 minutes by car.

A large and comfortable road will lead you from the bustle of the City to the tranquillity of the Florentine hills. 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 Tuscany landscape.

• Access to Villa Cafaggiolo is by a private road. You will never hear the sounds of traffic (day or night) during your stay. 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.

• The small village of Rosano is 1 Km from the Villa Cafaggiolo.

Here you’ll find the famous “Bottega di Rosano”… a grocery plenty of delicious food (cold meats, cheeses, olives, bread) and good wines…; you can get a quick panino (sandwich) or have a sit down meal with bistecca alla fiorentina. From the Villa, you can easily walk up to here in about 10/15 minutes.

Rosano is also famous for the Benedictine abbey of Santa Maria situated in a beautiful landscape of olive trees and vineyards. You can visit this millenary monastery, the church and the suggestive crypt. On Sunday morning at 10:00 am it is scheduled the Holy Mass in Latin, with Gregorian chants. If you are catholic… you cannot miss!!!

• The quite big village of Pontassieve is 2 Km from the Villa.

It is an attractive medieval town where you will find any kind of shops, supermarkets, banks, several very good restaurants and a shopping center.

In Pontassieve there is a rail station; 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 the rail station.
