Property description

Welcome to Casa Cappellino - the Italy we all dream of experiencing.

Casa Cappellino nestles among the Tuscan hills and stands on 3 acres of gardens and vineyard. These grounds are lovingly landscaped with ponds, olive grove, vineyard, fruit trees and flowering plants. Your private vacation home is an independent stone house that has been beautifully restored to the highest standard, retaining it's Tuscan charm with wooden beams and stone floors. Casa Cappellino is designed for private relaxing and comfortable living for all seasons.
The property is located in the true, genuine, Italian countryside far enough from the major tourist areas, so that authentic Italian life can be experienced.

Among these rolling Tuscan hills, you can explore the nearby hills, fields and streams bountiful with wild-life, chestnuts, walnuts, 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.
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 getaways. The 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 and relax in a peaceful setting. The 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 large 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.

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.

At Casa Cappellino, it is our goal to make your stay the most memorable possible.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Hi - we are Raul and Marianne. We are the owners of Casa Cappellino and we hope you love our house as much as we do. We spend most of the year in Florida and part of the time at our beautiful Casa Cappellino. When we are in Florida, we leave the care of Casa Cappellino in the capable hands of our friends and they will ensure that you have the best possible holiday here.

Why the Owner Chose Caprese Michelangelo, Arezzo, Italy:
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. Your experiencing the best possible vacation is our highest priority and we will do everything we can make your time here memorable.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The beauty of staying at Cappellino is you have your very own house. It is a beautifully restored stone Tuscan house and has everything you will need to feel completely at home. Within a 5 minute walk of your house you have a very charming grocery store and perhaps most importantly, you have Il Rifugio restaurant - the best Italian restaurant in the world!!!! Plus, staying at Casa Cappellino allows you to experience the Italy we have all dreamed about. Not gift shops and quick pizza focused on the tourism trade. Staying at Cappellino you will find beautiful, warm, Italian friends and neighbors who have lived here from generations with the added benefit of the best local Italian restaurants you could ever possibly find. 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. Your experiencing the best possible vacation is our highest priority and we will do everything we can to make your time here memorable.
