LIVING OUTDOOR - Cafaggio di Sopra is located in a dreamy green paradise, in an open and dominant position, on the crest of a hill (406m) above the Arno valley, guaranteeing coolness also during the long Florentine summers.
With a glance it’s possible to linger over Florence or to chase the soft profiles of the surrounding hills.
The southern exposure and east and west openess render the place particularly light from the first rays of sunrise to the palpitating sunset in the evening. Even the night is an emotion. The sky is a sea of stars and in the silence, listening attentively, it’s possible to “hear the grass grow”.
To reach our villa you will need a car. From there you can easily reach out for Florence and all the most fabulous location in Tuscany (like Siena, Pisa, San Gimignano and so on).
A handy local train reach Florence in 15min leaving from the nearest village (10min by car). The train arrives directly in center town!

This house was just a dream!! we were a group of 10 people really enjoying life in this beautiful house and region. The house is very spacious, there is a wonderful garden and a nice fireplace and wood to be around. florence is very close, we even went to the sea for a day, which was close too!
Michele and his parents were very kind and showed us around on the first day, even helped us to find the house, as we got lost. I would really recommend this house to anyone who wants to have a quiet holiday away, not be bothered by anything or anyone, just to have the beautiful nature everywhere you look around.
The house is lovely and the property is beautiful. Our experience was not great, because we encountered bad weather and were unable to take advantage of the pool and outside pizza oven, etc. The hosts were very kind, welcoming us with locally produced wine and olive oil. I would definitely go there again, but perhaps later in June or July.
