Located 100km east of Florence, Caprese Michelangelo is a village and commune in Tuscany, in the province of Arezzo.

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.

Lovely, peaceful property for a grown-up holiday in Tuscany.

5 of 5
Sandra and Paul are the perfect hosts and they have restored the cottages beautifully. Everything for your comfort has been thought of and the property is immaculate. You are far enough into the countryside for peace and quiet yet only ten minutes drive to the nearest supermarket. There is plenty to do from visiting the local towns to walking up the hills or relaxing by the pool. The pool itself is lovely with a spectacular view across the valley to Arezzo. We have no hesitation in recommending the cottages at La Torre - you will not be disappointed! By the way, we were talking to friends about our holiday after we got back and they started to tell us about a fabulous place they'd stayed in near Arezzo. We were amazed when we realised they were talking about La Torre as well. So that's two lots of satisfied clients!

A wonderful getaway

5 of 5
This was our second time at Covivoli and were a little anxious that it had not changed from the picture we still had in our mind of our first time there, especially since we were taking some family with us this time. 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.
