Self catering accommodation in the area consists mainly of restored farmhouses, luxury villas and manor houses, making it a perfect destination for a holiday rental.

Things to do in Caprese Michelangelo, Italy

Caprese Michelangelo is a small village with a population of just 1,600 (approx), and most visitors come purely to visit the birthplace of the village’s most famous son. There are several sights which focus on the life and times of Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni, including the Michelangelo Museum and Library – which is an absolute must-see for anyone holidaying in the area. The museum is housed in his birthplace, the Casa del Podesta, and displays life-sized copies of his masterpieces and other works by some of the most famous contemporary sculptors.

A couple of notable churches also attract a regular stream of visitors, most notably the 13th century Church of St. John the Baptist – where Michelangelo was baptized, and the San Paolo a Monna. The abbey of San Martino a Tifi also warrants a visit.

The village is ensconced in chestnut groves, and the chestnut is the local product, with tasting sessions are held on a regular basis. This culminates with the annual October wine and food event, which is regarded as the main event in the village’s calendar. The chestnut groves and surrounding woods are a great place for a stroll on a sunny day, though you will get to see a lot more if you take up the option of horse riding.

We were two families, (4 adults and 5 children) and the villa was spot on in terms of size and facilities for us. The house had literally everything we needed to make ourselves at home. The huge swimming pool, gardens and amazing views made this a very special holiday for both adults and children. So much space and privacy for swimming, exploring and just relaxing. The location is an ideal base for experiencing real Italian life (very few tourists), with great local restaurants serving delicious traditional Tuscan food and welcoming families. There is ample opportunity to explore the more famous historic towns and cities if you don't mind driving further afield, or closer lovely local towns with restaurants, woods, walks, churches, shops and bars. This home is beautifully decorated and a real holiday treat. We went with a view to exploring Tuscany and Umbria (which we did a little) but found the location just too perfect to want to move very far. We managed the holiday goal of just switching off and making the most of the perfect, peaceful and thoroughly relaxing surroundings, usually very hard to do with 5 children under 8, but they were constantly occupied with the pool and garden! Ian was very helpful when booking the villa and providing local information. We could not recommend this villa and location enough if you want to switch off, relax and enjoy all that Italy has to offer from a very comfortable and beautiful traditional Tuscan home.

We need not have worried. It was still wonderful and the family loved it. The setting of this place is just so amazing. The views are still magnificent and the house is comfortable and very easy to live in. The patio was everyone's favourite and we had some great evenings there, eating, drinking and having fun together. The pool is a great area for the children and the adults to relax around too. Thank you for keeping this place as is. We love it and can't wait to go back.
