This gorgeous villa for up to 8 people is close to Caprese Michelangelo, and between Florence & Cortona and is where the great artist Michelangelo was born and lived. The little chapel where he was baptized 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 received the stigmata. Rich in Renaissance history are the local towns of Sansepolcro, Cortona and the medieval walled town of Anghiari. Florence and Rome are easily accessed by car or train.
The villa 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. Self catering or meals can also be arranged at an extra cost.
