The Tuscany region
The area surrounding Caprese Michelangelo is rich with natural and historic gems often overlooked by the average visitor to Tuscany.
The property is 100 metres from a National way marked walk route, and a short distance from the National Park. Local Guides can provide guided tours of the surrounding countryside once rich in silver and copper deposits.
As well as providing an excellent environment for walking the surrounding hills also provide many of the local people with a range of local produce including mushrooms, truffles, chestnuts and wild game. Many of which can be enjoyed in the excellent local restaurants.
Oil and wine tastings are available at the local oil mill - one of the oldest mills in Italy. In late October/early November guests can enjoy the first pressings of the olives, with a glass of wine in front of a roaring fire.
Photographers will benefit from the beautiful spring and autumn light and the range of changing colours as the summer moves to autumn, and the land becomes a carpet of golds, reds, greens and browns.
Quiet roads make the area ideal for leisurely touring, day trips and exploring.
Within walking distance of the the house is the birth place of the great artist Michelangelo and the village of Caprese where during June, July and August guests can enjoy 'Dancing under the Stars', and the Chestnut Festival over the last two weekends in October. Caprese also has a number of restaurants and a pizzeria, in addition to a range of local services. A short drive, south, from the house is Sanseplocro, birth place of Piero Della Francesca; and the attractive walled town of Anghiari - described as one of the top 5 walled towns in Italy.
Approx 20 minute drive to the north is the monestary of La Verna where St Francis received his stigmata.
Within easy driving distance of the house are Arezzo; Florence, Sienna, Perugia and San Marino.
There are a number of local markets held throughout the week at the nearby towns of Pieve Santo Stefano, Sansepolcro, Anghiari and Citta Castello.

"Great location, lovely accommodation, plenty of places to visit and a pool to relax around"
Our group had a very enjoyable holiday here. We also felt we had stayed in an authentic Italian house. The location is peaceful and picturesque but we had a long list of places to visit - we didn't manage all of them as lazing around the pool and sun terrace was also a must do to enjoy the autumn sun.
We found local shops with good locally produced food and plenty of wine. The accommodation was very comfortable, clean and well maintained, as were the grounds. We all had a great time and would love to go back again.

This was our 3rd visit to caprese, we've stayed in both casa rosa and gentile next door. Both were amazing. started with lovely drive easy drive with excellent directions
The welcome was warm but not intrusive, the houses were well equipped and great welcome pack.

our visits have been in the summer, the autumn and most recenty winter I would recommend this all year!
