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.

Picture postcard views, quaint little towns perched on hilltops and mountain sides, amazing restaurants serving tasty food, pizzas fresh from wood fired ovens, local wines and the peace and tranquillity of a fantastic villa to relax in. We will most definitely be returning but next time for a fortnight. Thank you so much for your kindness Freyja xxx

The most exquisite and charming villa with gorgeous furniture and beautiful views that are literally breathtaking! We had the time of our lives at this fantastic place. We sunbathed during the day and visited so many wonderful places and had dinner in the evening then would really enjoy sitting outside our door in the courtyard each night having a drink and chatting with the guests staying in the other villas. Freyja we can't thank you enough for your hospitality and giving us our dream honeymoon. Much love Alice & Harvey xxxxx

It was difficult to decide whether to chill by the pool or or go sightseeing in one of the many local towns. The oil mill tour & taste should not be missed what a way to spend an afternoon and evening. A week wasn't long enough. Lovely apartment & very kind and welcoming hosts. Highly recommend
