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 loved this place so much we have booked to go back this year again. The owner was incredibly caring and nothing was too much trouble. The villa was the best we have ever stayed at in our 30 years of doing villa holidays. A beautiful private villa with everything you can need plus the owner and staff live within the grounds so are available for any advise or taxi service we needed. The view is incredible and the pool was amazing. 100% recommend this place.

                                                              Superb hillside retreat , picturesque & peacefulne

                                                              Having left home at 04.00 we finally arrived at Caprese Michelangelo where we met John and Sue. From this moment on they were most helpful yet not intrusive even though they were only Iin the adjoining property. We climbed up the stony track in the 2 hired cars arriving at the most idyllic panoramic villa set up in the hillside. There was not a building in sight! Sue produced some bubbly for us as we had just celebrated our ruby wedding anniversary and this was our family celebration! During the week we visited Sienna, a hilly town with loads of history ; Arezzo with its' stunning murals; Florence for the famous market and places of interest; anghiari for lunch in a most beautiful hilltop restaurant. Tuscany is a most picturesque place for a holiday! We also made pizzas with Sue and John on their wood burning stove that was great fun! We recommend this villa where the hosts, John &Sue were so welcoming! Many thanks!

                                                              A lovely house which is very well equipped.

                                                              4 of 5
                                                              We spent a lovely relaxing week here in August. The house is lovely, very comfortably furnished and equipped with everything you need. The pool is a good size and the outside area is very nice with a lovely seating area and an excellent barbeque. We visited Il Rifugio restaurant just along the lane 4 times in a week which we found to be excellent and really good value. The only negative from our point of view is that the village is quite remote and it is a bit of a drive through winding roads to the nearest town, supermarket, choice of restaurants etc. However, for anyone wanting a quiet week in the Italian countryside this is a perfect choice.
