- LOCATION - "Florence is only 12 km away... only 15 minutes drive"

• 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 Classic 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 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 on Tripadvisor

""The villas are very well situated and close to the villages of Rosano and Pontassieve.
The panoramic surrounds are picture postcard and extremely relaxing"" Simon on Tripadvisor

• 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. The Pope Ratzinger has often visited the abbey in the past years. 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 hilltop is very quiet and away from the noise and hassles of the city.
It was a great home base for touring around Italy. You are only ten minutes from the train station and can be in Florence in 20 minutes"" Ben on Tripadvisor

• 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.
