Leonardo Apartment overlooking the birthplace & Castle of Michelangelo in Tuscan

Located in: Caprese Michelangelo
Beautiful Tuscan 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. If you can’t find the dates you need please contact us as we have another 3 villas here.
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.
There is so much to see & do as well as time to relax by the salt water pool which is heated by solar panels and it gets very warm. So plenty of sun cream is very important especially as we are in the Apennine Mountains and at 600 metres above sea level the sun's rays are very strong.
The area has many great restaurants and because we are not close to the city the prices are very low. We have a taxi service available to take guests to any of the wonderful restaurants nearby.
Anghiari, a wonderful medieval walled town is nearby.
In Caprese Michelangelo you will find the castle and birthplace of the legendary artist Michelangelo to visit, as well as a lovely family restaurant called the Buca di Michelangelo,where it is possible to have a 4 course meal that is around 25 euro a head and it is amazing! You can have truffles on your pasta which is incredible. Look for anything with Tartufi. So the pasta con Tartufi or Gnocchi con Tartufi which means with truffles There is a Pizzeria called Il Boschetto and If you eat there at the weekend you can then get a free pass to the dancing outside.
Enjoy an authentic Italian experience at the local olive oil mill. The mill dates back to 1421 and is still in use to this day.
This wonderful experience of visiting an oil mill is fantastic. First you will have a little tour of the mill and then you go to the family residence where you will enjoy a fresh and delicious meal complete with wine made from the grapes from their own vineyard in the courtyard. This is preceded by an opportunity to taste the many variations on their own oils. Particularly remarked upon, are the fennel, lemon, black and white truffle and basil flavoured oils.
Located in a picturesque alpine valley town nearby is the thermal spa which offers guests the perfect setting to relax and unwind. The large pool is separated into indoor and outdoor sections, enabling visitors to take in the breath-taking views or gaze up into the night sky. This beautiful spa also boasts Jacuzzis, waterfalls and a steam cave.
The ancients considered the thermal waters to come from the gods, a precious health-giving gift from the mysterious depths of the earth. Today, geologists can explain that the gift is not actually heaven-sent, but a little "miracle" of nature.
The warm waters are in fact rain that fell some 10,000 years ago in the central part of the Tuscan-Romagna Apennines. During these millennia, the water seeped down into the subsoil and was heated geothermically and enriched with beneficial properties. The water became a concentrate of active natural elements including sulphur, bicarbonate, sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, fluorine, chlorine, lithium, manganese, iron and ammonium. It then rose towards the surface along a fault line until it reached Bagno di Romagna where it now flows at temperatures between 39 °C and 47 °C.
The water that now flows out is physiological because it contains active elements that correspond to those of the human body. It is also medicinal and can therefore change and positively influence the conditions of the human body. It is easily tolerated because it has none of the side effects of drugs. Finally, the water at the thermal spa can be used to treat certain diseases and, above all, to prevent them, because it activates the body's natural defenses.
You don’t need to worry about bringing shampoo, hair conditioner or shower gel as we supply all of that. We also supply all the towels including pool towels.
