Welcome to Casa Cappellino - the Italy we all dreamed of experiencing.
Casa Cappellino is nestled among the Tuscan hills on 3 acres. The grounds are lovingly landscaped with ponds, olive grove, vineyard, fruit trees and flowering plants. Your private vacation home is an independent stonehouse of your very own that has been beautifully restored to the highest standards and has retained the Tuscan charm with wooden beams, terra cotta ceilings, chestnut doors and windows, terra cotta floors and a wood burning stove. Your vacation home is designed for private, relaxing and comfortable living for all seasons.
An Idyllic Setting: Casa Cappellino is the realization of the true Italy we all dream about. The property is located in the true, genuine, Italian countryside far enough from the major tourism centers so that authentic Italian life can be experienced. Many of the local residents have never been further than perhaps 50 miles from Caprese Michelangelo their entire lives and are the most lovely people you could ever hope to meet. You will not find shops geared toward tourists or restaurants serving quick food far from ideal Italian cuisine. In our little corner of Italian heaven you will find the true essence of Italy.
Among the rolling Tuscan hills, you can explore the nearby hills, fields and streams bountiful with wild life, chestnut, walnut, mushrooms, rare ferns and wild flowers. The property overlooks a small tranquil village in which its proud residents have lived for generations in their family homes. Straight and elegant cypress trees, mountain streams with rapids and waterfalls adorn this charming little Italy village. A famous Tuscan restaurant 'Il Rifugio', that attracts patrons from Milan and Florence, is within a 5-minute walk of your holiday rental home.
Your House overlooks the beautifully landscaped grounds that provides a peaceful and secluded holiday vacation retreat for relaxation and intimate get-aways. The natural spring fountain on the property was a source of drinking water for the villagers in the old days. The veranda/terrace is an amazingly relaxing place to sunbathe, read, have romantic meals or stargaze into the night.
There are outdoor sitting areas where you can choose to spend the time with a bottle of Casa Cappellino wine by one of the ponds. The veranda/terrace of your house is completely private and it commands magnificent views across rolling hills to the birthplace of Michelangelo and a panorama view of Lama that lies in the valley below.
The house is a charming Tuscan home on two levels. It is built with stone exterior walls, wooden beams, terra cotta ceilings, chestnut wooden doors and windows, terra cotta floors. It has two big bedrooms with double beds. The open kitchen, dining and living area with a wood burning stove are perfect for intimate and relaxing settings. The bedroom on the lower level opens to the veranda with amazing views of Michelangelo's birth home and the small village of Lama below where our local grocery store and wonderful Il RIfugio restaurant are located.
Your vacation home is of course equipped with everything you could possibly need to feel 'right at home'. This includes a fully equipped kitchen, hundreds of channels of satellite TV, numerous classic movies for viewing, and WiFi Internet access throughout the property grounds and your vacation home.
We are centrally situated within easy access to major attractions. You can easily take day trips to Florence, Pisa, Bologna, Cortona, Siena, Perugia, Assisi, Rome, or many of the infinite charming unknown Italian villages.
You are encouraged to read the reviews and contact us for more information. All of our guests have consistently said Casa Cappellino is much, much more wonderful than they ever expected.
Due to the frequent requests we have had over the years, we are now also offering to our guests authentic Italian Cooking Classes.

Why the Owner Chose Caprese Michelangelo:
Of all the countries we have visited, the wonderful people of Italy and the beautiful country won us over. Cappellino is very relaxing with plenty of ideal places for simple walks or hikes. But also, the property is very centrally located such that days trips to many wonderful towns (Florence, Assisi, Cortona, Siena, Rimini, Chianti, Montalcino, etc.) are very easy. Many people also make day trips to Rome by driving to the nearby Arezzo train station and taking the 2 hour train to Rome and then return in the evening. As a break from day-trips consider one of our Authentic Tuscan Cooking Classes here at Cappellino that are hugely popular. Your experiencing the best possible vacation is our highest priority and we will do everything we can make your time here memorable.
