About the property

Beautiful Villa Tuscany

Beautiful Tuscan villa/apartment for couples,no children allowed. Right in the heart of Tuscany overlooking the village of Caprese Michelangelo and is set in 100 acres of the most beautiful mountain forests. The relaxing, heated salt water pool complete with Roman steps, sits in a peaceful olive grove with a breath-taking view through the mountains to the fairytale-esque Castle of Michelangelo.

The tranquil position, frequently described as 'paradise on earth' contains an abundance of wildlife where the birds sing all night and the fireflies provide a moving display of sparkling light. In years gone by, the villa was owned by the Vatican and was used to house monks from the monastery. Ideal for walking and cycling, the area is home to many fine restaurants, with truffles and mushrooms being a local specialty, and good Tuscan wines. The mountains and forests have inspired the three greatest artists of the Renaissance and remain largely unspoiled today. This is where the great artist Michelangelo was born and lived. The little chapel where he was baptised is in the village and a museum dedicated to him is within the Castle of Michelangelo. Nearby at La Verna is the Franciscan monastery retreat where St Francis of Assisi is said to have received the stigmata. Rich in Renaissance history are the local towns of Sansepolcro, Cortona and the medieval walled town of Anghiari. It is ideal for walking and cycling in particular.This exclusive resort of five self catering villa/apartments is the perfect place to relax.Self catering or meals can also be arranged at an extra cost. Complimentary aperitivo and warm bruchetta served every evening in the courtyard allowing guests to nibble and socialise.

About Freyja


Freyja purchased this villa in 2004

Why Freyja chose Sansepolcro area

I was lucky enough to have come house hunting at the right time when this property had not yet been advertised and as soon as I saw the view I knew that nothing else would compare.

Amazing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Italy before this holiday and it was everything we could have hoped for and so much more. Picture postcard views, quaint little towns perched on hilltops and mountain sides, amazing restaurants serving tasty food, pizzas fresh from wood fired ovens, local wines and the peace and tranquillity of a fantastic villa to relax in. We will most definitely be returning but next time for a fortnight. Thank you so much for your kindness Freyja xxx

A great place to stay in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay in a beautiful part of Italy. The view from the balcony of the Michelangelo suite is stunning. The property is peaceful and secluded, with a fire pit and a brand-new Scandinavian hot tub (the wooden, above-ground kind). It helps to hire a car in this region -- the villa is a 30-minute drive from Sansepolcro, Anghiari, and other historic spots. (Sansepolcro has a well-provisioned grocery store as well.) Freyja and Malcolm are superb hosts, with a deep knowledge of local attractions and history; they're also happy to recommend great local restaurants and to make bookings on your behalf.

Wonderful Hosts, Incredible Vistas and All You Could Wish For, We Didn't Want To Leave!

  • 5 of 5

We booked our stay for Birthday/Anniversary celebrations and was everything we could have wished for.

Our hosts Freyja and Malcolm were so warm and welcoming, we instantly felt relaxed and at home. They kindly offered us the option of a 3 course meal on arrival and catered for our vegetarian needs, which was greatly appreciated after a long day of travelling and absolutely delicious.

We stayed in the Michelangelo Suite, a spacious and comfortable villa equipped with everything required for a relaxing holiday. This also has a wonderful balcony where we enjoyed a glass of Prosecco (or two!) whilst taking in the incredible views of the surrounding Tuscan Hills.

Freyja and Malcolm have invaluable knowledge of excellent local restaurants and places of interest to visit and are more than happy to help with any queries or bookings.

We can't thank them enough for an unforgettable holiday, our only regret is that we didn't have more time there. Ciao for now.... but we hope to be back.

wonderful villa and superb owners and staff. The villa is elegant and comfortable and we have never slept so well as on that huge super soft comfy bed. Beautiful location and tremendous views. Fantastic base for seeing Italy and we took a train to Florence for only eight euro. Highly recommend this villa. Superb!

Absolutely amazing place

  • 5 of 5

We spend our honeymoon at the beautiful Villa Michelangelo and really enjoyed every day there. Located in the most beautiful area of the Tuscany the villa offers a breathtaking view over the surrounding area and to the small village where Michelangelo was born. My wife and I enjoyed exploring the small villages around, relaxing in the saltwater pool or just chatting with the warm hearted owners Freya and Malcolm till late in the nights. Our apartment was clean and tidy, the beds were comfortable and the view was stunning. With our hired car it was easy to reach italy's most famous places like Florence, Rome or Venice within a short time. But by returning we always appreciated the peaceful and calm atmosphere around our villa. We are very happy that we found this amazing place and recommend everybody to spend at least two weeks there to experience the authentic italian way of life. We will definitely spend more following vacations at this beautiful place. XX Arnold and Marie-Johanna

Further Details:

The beautiful village of Caprese Michelangelo is where the great artist Michelangelo Buonarotti was born in 1475 and lived. The little chapel where he was baptised is still in the village and his home is now a museum which is set in the hilltop fortification of old Caprese, the castle of Michelangelo.

In the local Abbey there are historical records which show that Villa Michelangelo was previously owned by the Vatican and housed monks for the monastery at La Verna which is approx 18 km away by road. It states that the monks built a tunnel between the Villa and the monastery and that a church once stood here also. Although we have not yet found the tunnel we hope that one day someone will find it.

The area has many great local restaurants and supermarkets.
