Make a holiday rental home or villa in Caprese Michelangelo, Italy your home away from home

Located 100km east of Florence, Caprese Michelangelo is a village and commune in Tuscany, in the province of Arezzo. It is named in honour of being the birthplace of the renowned Renaissance artist Michelangelo, and contains several buildings related to his life, including the Michelangelo Museum. 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 took a chance, and, was it worth!!! When we arrived, while it was pouring rain, the owner, Iacopo welcomed us with wonderful, home made lasagna, and focaccia, and even warmer words, "it's your villa for the next 7 days, it's your home for the next 7 days". And we felt that immediately! The morning after the sun came, and we had a breakfast outside with the best view of the Tuscany. View from the property is amazing, overlooking the vineyards, spreading to the surrounding hills. During our stay we had a crocking class, and wine tasting (fun, fun, fun!!!) organised by Bonella, property manager. On all occasions, with every question, or request we had, Iacopo and Bonella responded, not just immediately, but enthusiastically! We had a feeling that they are part of our family, and this is how we left them. Bonella, Iacopo, we are coming back!!!

                                                                                                      Villa Carda is a beautifully appointed, tasteful property set in magnificent parklands which enjoys spectacular views over lush mountains. The villa is ideally located, either as a complete retreat to enjoy the landscape, the heated pool or the private spa, or as a base to explore the Tuscan countryside. The Medieval towns of Poppi and Arezzo are within a short drive from the villa- and Florence and Cortona are still accessible just being a little further afield. Each room is gracefully decorated, spacious and has individual ensuites; all comforts are carefully considered. Andrea, the owner, is incredibly attentive and helpful; he is always only a phone call away and arranged daily breakfast delivery for our party. One of our highlights was a superb Tuscan meal cooked for us at the Villa- a real treat and absolutely delicious. A wonderful villa, in a glorious setting with great food, good company and helpful hosts- perfect!
