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.

Arezzo is just 40km away, allowing you to escape back to the hustle and bustle and of city life if you so wish to do so.

Weather in Caprese Michelangelo, Italy

The climate in Caprese Michelangelo and surrounding areas of Tuscany is ideal for a self catering vacation, as summer temperatures are sunny and warm, with an average of 30C, and winters are mild, with temperatures of below 10C considered unusual.

Truly sublime villa in the most amazing spot

5 of 5
We had two weeks in this fabulous villa and what an amazing place this was. Not sure how we managed to drag ourselves away from the vista down the valley or from the pool (which is where I spent most of my day). There was nothing missing from our time in the house - everything we could have needed or even thought of was provided. There was shade for my husband who behaves as if sunlight will melt him and a TV for the foot ball for my cousin as this was absolutely the most important thing. The family joined us for the second week along with our 15month old grandson who spent most of his time 'walking' up and down the steps as was his wont. There was ample space for us all to enjoy whatever area of the house and grounds suited us best and all the rooms were cool enough that we were able to sleep very well indeed. For me it was the unforeseen pleasure of watching the wildlife from the grand position of the upstairs loo window - hares, deer and many many birds including golden oriels which I have never seen before. At night we were serenaded by nightingales, also something I'd never heard till then. The walks around the house are not to be missed either as we also saw wild boar! So basically this was the perfect holiday in the perfect location - thank you.
