Casa Gentili nestles in the lush Tuscan countryside in an area often overlooked by the average visitor to Tuscany. Within walking distance of the village of Caprese Michelangelo and birthplace of the great artist Michelangelo, Casa Gentili provides the visitor with the perfect base to explore Tuscany. Casa Gentili was formerly the local manor house and is in the hamlet of Colle san Polo. Internally the property combines classic Italian features such as decorative artwork, large arch windows, stone staircase and a large open fire place with modern refurbished bathrooms and shower rooms, and a fully fitted kitchen. The manor house also has full central heating making it ideal for an all year round break.
Externally guests can enjoy the portico, perfect for summer evening dining, BBQ, patio area, the Grand Terrace, garden and orchard - which guests are free to pick fruits from when is season (figs, apples, pears, hazelnuts and walnuts).
The garden also provides guests with a array of fresh herbs to enjoy including bay, rosemary, thyme, sage and basil.

Casa Gentili is just 1km from the birth place of Michelangelo. The village of Caprese Michelangelo has a range of local services and a small museum celebrating the birth and life of the great artist.
