Caprese Michelangelo, the birthplace of the world's most renowned artist. View his home and the church where he was baptized (both open to the public).

Monterchi, is the Tuscan town famous for Piero della Francescas Madonna del Parto, and an important stop on the Piero della Francesco trail.

Guestbook comments from the owner
What can I say? This was my second visit with my mom & friends and it just gets better with each visit. The house is fantastic with amazing views from practically every room. What is really unique aside from the blend of rustic charm & modern conveniences is that the house provides all kinds of sanctuary for anyone who wishes some private space to soak in this magical part of Tuscany. Set in the countryside, the house is central to so many charming places to visit either for a day, morning or afternoon. One should take care that they don't get charmed to death! Perhaps the best part is the location is off the beaten path, so it is easier to experience the region without butting heads with a lot of tourists. The rolling terrain offers more variety of color and contrasts compared to the Chianti region further west. The charm of Sansepolcro and the people of the region allows the visitor to acclinmate so easily. The province of arezzo is genuine! Wonder, charm & adventure are within a stones throw in all directions. I cannot say enough about how much I love this place and would wholeheartedly encourage a stay there!

Beautiful house, view, pool, off beaten track

  • 5 out of 5
Great house, very comfortable and tasteful, with lots of different spaces outside and an amazing view. Really well equipped kitchen. Feels like a real home with character, but also comfort and luxory. Everything works. There are neighbours, which I always think is a comfort, but they are practically invisible, which is also good!. Local town is interesting and attractive, but not overrun with tourists, and there are several other similar places around. Definitely would recommend this and would love to go back.

The best family vacation of our lives!!!

  • 5 out of 5
We have stayed at this property two summers in a row. Our first vacation was in August of 2009, the summer was hot and the villa was the perfect place to relax by the pool, soak up the great Italian sun drinking prosecco! Our most recent visit was September of 2010! We loved our visits. The location is ideally situated, in a very private sub community in the hills of Sansepolcro....I could only hope to make it sound half as romantic as it is. There is an amazing castle that adds to the privacy of the location and the serenity of the setting, its a feeling of being at home. Local vineyards abound. The photos are accurate of the accommodation, and the property was very clean and well prepared for our visit. I would highly recommend this property to anyone hoping to experience the real Italy. The incredible sweeping vistas of the Valtiberina, right at your fingertips prevents you from wanting to ever leave this incredible gem of a villa!
Our 8 and 10 year old daughters are normally quite timid, they had a great time exploring the local area and felt right at home from the moment they arrived. We feel the house is very well located to all major tourist sites, and gives you a great opportunity to explore many of the less known spots which truly are the greatest experiences of visiting Italy. The closest town, Sansepolcro is a very friendly, genuine Italian town....it feels like you are one of locals as tourists seem non-existent! We really enjoyed visiting the towns of Anghiari, San Leo, Caprese Michelangelo (birthplace of Michelangelo), La Verna (the site where St Francis received his stigmata), Assisi, so many many more!!!! We will be back again and again!

Consider yourself lucky to have found this gem!
