Updated: 27-Oct-2016
Sleeps 12, 6 Bedrooms 5 Bathrooms

RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. The hermitage of Caterina de’ Medici, today better known as the Poggio Nuccioli estate, is located among the green hills of Carmignano, where the Etruscans left their mark. The villa, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, offers stunning views and is just a few paces from the piazza of Carmignano, an old Tuscan village nestled in the hills and renowned for the production of a DOC wine and an extra virgin olive oil that were already famous at the time of the noble Medici family. The particularity of this farmhouse is that typical local materials have been used during the renovation, sandstone (with the particular processing method, subbiatura, of this area), terracotta, wooden beams and trusses. The garden, typical of this area, is distributed over various levels with each view a veritable picture postcard. It is a strategic point for the most beautiful itineraries in Tuscany, to Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Pistoia, Vinci.


A flight of steps lead from the parking lot to the terrace and the main entrance into the house and the large living room with fireplace and satellite TV. The living room leads on to the fully-equipped kitchen and dining room. Next to the living room is a small toilet, a laundry, a sitting room and a study from which a flight of stairs leads down to a small kitchen on the lower floor with access to the pool and solarium. Two different staircases lead up to the first floor. A sandstone staircase in the living room leads up to a first double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower, a second double bedroom with join able beds and en-suite bathroom without shower, a third double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower and a fourth double bedroom with child’s cot and en-suite bathroom with shower. A fifth double bedroom in the turret, with breathtaking views, has the use of a bathroom at the beginning of the stairs leading to the turret. A sixth double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower is reached from the study on the ground floor via a wooden staircase.


The villa is set in a 2500 sq.m park distributed among olive groves growing on the gentle slopes of the hill and fruit trees, such as the famous figs of Carmignano. The cosy garden is also enriched with various types of flowers and surrounded by typical Tuscan plants – cypress trees, oaks, holm oaks. The whole garden can be seen from a spacious terracotta terrace which is reached from both the garden and the dining room. Adjacent to the pool is a relaxation zone in terracotta and stone with sofas and armchairs, perfect for enjoying convivial moments.

Swimming Pool

The newly constructed pool next to the house looks out over the Carmignanesi hills. Surrounded by a wooden deck and equipped with sunbeds and deck chairs, the pool area offers complete relaxation perfumed by the bushes of rosemary, lavender and flowers surrounding it. It is also accessible from various points in the garden. The rectangular pool measures 8 x 4 metres with a constant depth of 1.45 m; access to the water is by ladder. The purification plant is chlorine and it has internal lighting. At the guests' disposal is a cold-water shower.

Famous throughout the world for the ancient Etruscans and the noble Medici family who had chosen these places for their summer residences, this part of Tuscany has many fortresses and borghi of great historical interest. Visitors to Carmignano cannot give the Rocca a miss. From up there, when the weather is nice and free from haze, you can see, in all its beauty, the entire plain between Florence, Prato and Pistoia. Climbing up the slopes that lead to the fortress, modified various times in the course of its nearly thousand year-old history, you cannot help but notice in the distance the Duomo of Florence or, on the opposite hill, the beautiful Medici villa of the “One Hundred Chimneys” at Artimino . The medieval Rocca , also known locally as the Castle, occupied in the past, and in part still today, a substantial portion of the hill that overlooks the village of Carmignano. Thanks to its fortunate position this fortress has been for centuries an outpost for controlling the passage of armies to and from northern Italy. It is hardly surprising that Florence and Pistoia contested it for two centuries with prolonged sieges and successive destructions. Despite being nestled in the hills, the villa enjoys excellent connections to the airports of Florence and Pisa, as well as the A1 motorway exit of Prato Ovest. The nearest train station for the Florence-Rome-Genoa line is in Prato and for the Florence-Pisa line in Signa.
