Apartment GIOTTO - "3 bedrooms - 2 bathrooms - up to 7 persons"
The apartment sets over 2 levels, it is big and elegant; it sleeps up to 7 persons (2 double beds + 3 single beds) in 3 charming bedrooms.
The total surface is 140 square metres (about 1500 suare feet) + a 200 square metres private garden.
The apartment is completely independent (private entrance).
The living room and dining room have direct access to the private patio-loggia and private garden.
The staircase that links the ground floor to the first floor is large and comfortable (with a safe rail hand); the steps are made by a beautiful grey Tuscan sandstone “Pietra Serena”, the same stone used by Michelangelo, Brunelleschi and many other Renaissance Artists and Architects.
Furniture is antique, elegant and carefully selected with pictures and ornaments.
Walls are decorated with photos and engravings that represent Florence monuments and Tuscany landscapes. Also, some interesting ancient maps will help you understand how was the layout of Florence during Medieval and Renaissance times.
The interiors are full of Italian charm… there is really a warm and homelike atmosphere!!!
The apartment has stone walls, beamed ceilings, terracotta floors, brick niches and windows with stone lintels.
Thanks to the thick stone walls, the temperature inside is always cool (night and day) even when outside is quite hot.

"" The Villa is in a great location on top a hill on a private road.
Very quiet. We had the Tuscany Welcome Basket, which was wonderful!
The limoncello and the tomato sauce was delicious.
We had apt Giotto. It has the best view of the valley below.
We had a small terrace that we watched the sunset from.
Apt Michelangelo faces the pool with lovely gardens and Brunelleschi faces the olive groves.
But we never came across the other vacationers. "" Christina on Tripadvisor

"" ... we had a fabulous time at Villa Cafaggiolo. The villa, location and hosts were perfect in everyway.
The villas are tastefully decorated and provide all the equipment you need for your stay.
The gardens and pool area provide an oasis of calm after the hustle and bustle of Florence.
The Pucci Family are charming and gracious hosts and are on hand to advise on places or restaurants.
We will definitely return! "" Judith on Tripadvisor
