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 met (after 9pm) on arrival by Freya and Malcom who were so friendly and on hearing we hadn't had any dinner, quickly served a brilliant three course meal with prosecco! The apartment was beautiful, huge comfortable bed and amazing views out over the Tuscan countryside. We fell in love with the local village of Anghiari- recommend Pizzeria Bar Baldacchio for its location, pizza and friendly service. There are so many places to see in the local area which Freya can tell you about during your stay- she is happy and willing to give advice. She also arranged an olive oil tasting trip for us which was beyond expectations. It was the classic, rustic Tuscan experience and well worth the money. We would definitely go back and stay at Villa Michelangelo and would highly recommend if you're looking for a peaceful holiday with the option to soak up some local culture too. THANK YOU!! :) Natalie and Piers

Its actually more gorgeous than the photos suggest! The villa is out of the way and Covivoli was not on our sat nav so we would recommend following Gareth's written instructions very carefully, buying a detailed map and getting there in day light. That said its well located with some wonderful historic towns 30 minutes drive from the villa Fernanda was lovely. All in all we could not recommend this beautiful villa more highly

The villa was absolutely perfect for what we wanted - a great place to relax and enjoy the sun & pool, and lots to do & see in the surrounding area. We visited the local restaurant a lot more than planned but that is a testament to the great food (especially steaks & pizzas!), service, and value for money. Lesley was really helpful throughout the booking process with everything running perfectly before and during our stay. Would definitely recommend this place to others.
