APARTMENT BRUNELLESCHI: 3 double bedrooms, sleeps up to 8 people
The apartment sets over 2 levels, it is very big and elegant. The total surface is about 170 square metres.
It sleeps up to 8 persons (3 double beds + 3 single beds; so there are 9 beds for 8 persons!!!) in 3 charming bedrooms.
The apartment is completely independent (private entrance).
The living room and the dining room have direct access to the private patio-loggia and private garden.

Just like the other 2 apartments, also the apartment Brunelleschi has interiors characterized by stone walls, beamed ceilings, terracotta floors, brick arches and brick niches.
Because of the thick stone walls, the apartment is always cool (night and day) even when outside is hot.

The furniture is carefully selected with antiques and ornaments in order to create a warm and homelike atmosphere. To add extra warmth…the walls are decorated with photos and engravings that represent Florence monuments and Tuscany landscapes… and with several handmade cross stitching, created by Paola.

The apartment is also provided with: independent heating, washing machine, iron and ironing board, BBQ, outside garden furniture… All of this, is just for you!!! It is in your private garden!!!

The GROUND FLOOR consists of: 1 very big living room + 1 dining room + kitchen.

--Bedroom “2” has 1 double bed (Queen size) + 1 single bed + ensuite bathroom + private terrace.
This bedroom is very light because 2 walls are glass-walls.

A BBQ and a dining table with chairs (seats 8 persons) are at your disposal: drink your coffee… sip your wine… and relax, while birds sing their songs!!!

    WE LOVE CHILDREN!!! I've 2 kids... Lucrezia, 7 years old and Gherardo, 6 years old. They will be happy to play with your kids!!! '' We were so very glad we stayed here and got to know the Pucci family. We are 40-something with 2 kids (ages 6 and 10) and the Michelangelo apartment was perfect for us. We appreciated the pre-arrival grocery delivery which was very convenient. Highlights of the property: Pucci family recommendations, the pool, the peaceful atmosphere, and proximity of both Florence and the hill towns. The villa's website will give you all of the information about their three apartments as well as pictures. The apartments were excellent. Well furnished, very clean, cooking pots and pans if you want to prepare your own meals. We were so pleased with the area and the villa that we want to go back with friends in the future.''

'''' 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. The beds are beyond comfortable with wonderful crisp ironed sheets and personal down comforters designed by Paola! Genious!...'''' KAREN on TRIPADVISOR...moreless

Bathrooms: 2 Bathrooms

Other Amenities

  • Cooking Class, Private Tours on request ''''… recommend using services/packages they offer. Highest recommendation - the 'Tuscany Welcome Basket' with locally grown honey, olive oil, limoncello and red wine. Another recommendation - grocery food items of your choice upon your arrival so you have the initial items for breakfast, lunch, etc. (We took advantage of the Chef's night at our villa, too and you'll have food leftover for days to come). '''' NICK on TRIPADVISOR '''' We had the wonderful opportunity to have a cooking class with Barbara and Niccolo in late August. This is a most hospitable couple who shared their knowledge of Tuscan cooking with us in a very patient and friendly way. Niccolo also provided us with many great travel tips for our remaining days in Tuscany. The food we prepared was so delicious and the comfort we felt spending the afternoon/evening with them surpassed all expectations.'''' KAREN on TRIPADVISOR...moreless
