About Niccolo Pucci

CIAO,

I'm Niccolò and I live in Florence; I’m in my 40s, I’m married and I have 2 young kids.

I own and manage several Wonderful Holiday Villas in the Florentine hills; so if you are looking for a great accommodation in and around Florence… just ask me and I’ll find the right one for you!

If you have any question, just ask me and I'll be happy to reply to you within few hours.

I run this business with great passion and attention to details; the many “Excellent” reviews on Tripadvisor are the best proof (please, check!).

"""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

Niccolo Pucci purchased this villa in 1970

Why Niccolo Pucci chose Florence Area

Villa Cafaggiolo is a charming, ancient stone-built farmhouse which sits atop a hill in a panoramic position, surrounded by open farm-land, cultivated with olive groves and vineyards.

The Villa is the Pucci’s family home; we live here in a detached Villa within the same estate and we're pleased to open our home to a select number of guests each year.

We'll be here to welcome you when you’ll arrive. We'll give you the insider's guide to Tuscany, including personally arranging trips to local wineries and places off the beaten track from Florence to Siena…

Villa Cafaggiolo is situated in a perfect location (amid the Florentine hills), to make day trips all around Tuscany: Siena, Pisa, Cinque Terre…

If you look for a peaceful country setting that is close to shops and restaurants.

What makes this villa unique

• 160+ EXCELLENT REVIEWS on TRIPADVISOR: a great value!!!

• 100% TRAVELERS RECOMMEND

• Florence is only 12 km away (15 minutes drive).

• NO CAR NEEDED... we offer TRANSFER SERVICES to train station.

• Customized SERVICES: Private Tours, Private Dinners, Cooking Classes... please ask for further details.

• The medium size town of Pontassieve, is less than 3 km from the Villa; it is an attractive medieval village where you will find many shops, banks, markets, several very good restaurants and a shopping center.

• 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 of Florence.

There is still so much to see and to do around Villa Cafaggiolo.

• "" How can you put into words the perfect month in Tuscany?? Two words: Villa Cafaggiolo!!!

The most magnificent place to spend time in Italy. La Dolce Vita... "" Betty on Tripadvisor.



• "" 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.



• ""... Villa Cafaggiolo is a place to relax and unwind, to read, to sleep, to swim or sunbathe, to charge batteries before tackling the amazing Renaissance art of Florence, or the beauty of the Florentine hills and villages."" William on Tripadvisor.



• ""Paola is a quintessential Florentine Italian Mother. She is elegant and chic while being extremely warm and charming. Her son, Niccolo, and his wife Barbara are equally as sweet and warm. They were always available for daily planning and logistical questions.

The villa is a loved, restored family home."" Sue on Tripadvisor.



• "" ...we took several tours by the owner’s son Niccolo who personalized the trips to our interests, expertly guided us through the Tuscan countryside, villages and historic fortresses.

Each daylong tour included a wealth of knowledge of the history and customs of the areas we visited. We enjoyed learning about and visiting several small wineries.

We spent a day visiting medieval castles and another tour highlighted Renaissance fortresses.

The personal anecdotes of historical and modern Tuscany Niccolo provided made each tour extremely enjoyable and educational"" Erik on Tripadvisor.



• "" Such a beautiful spot off the beaten path! The Pucci family has paid attention to every detail to make Villa Cafaggiolo the perfect place to call home while exploring Tuscany. We stayed in the Giotto Apartment. It was so cozy and welcoming.

The architectural detail of the space is a story in itself. So well done!

The decor is charming and filled with collectables found at local flea markets!..."" Karen on Tripadvisor.
