About the Property

A beautiful and romantic one bedroom house set in glorious gardens

Casa Rosa is nestled among the Tuscan hills with spectacular views of Caprese Michleangelo - the birth home of the great artist, Michelangelo.
The grounds have been lovingly landscaped with ponds, olive grove, vineyard, fruit trees and flowering plants and are for your enjoyment. Casa Rosa is an independent stonehouse that has been beautifully restored to the highest standards, retaining the Tuscan charm, with wooden beams, terra cotta ceilings, chestnut doors and windows, terra cotta floors and a wood burning stove. Your private holiday home is designed for relaxing and comfortable living for all seasons.

Casa Rosa is the realization of the true Italy we all dream about. The property is located in the genuine Italian countryside, far enough from the major tourist centres, so that authentic Italian life can be experienced. In our little corner of Tuscany you will find the essence of Italy.

Among the rolling Tuscan hills, explore the nearby hills, fields and streams bountiful with wild-life, chestnuts, walnuts, mushrooms, rare ferns and wild flowers.
The house 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 Italian village. A famous Tuscan restaurant, 'Il Rifugio', that attracts patrons from Milan and Florence, is within a 5-minute walk of your holiday home.

The house is surrounded by beautifully landscaped grounds that provide a peaceful and secluded retreat. The natural spring fountain on the property, just outside your front door, was a source of drinking water for the villagers in the old days. 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 with a bottle of wine, or dine under the grapevine covered pergola.

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 one very large bedroom with a double bed. The open kitchen, dining and living area with a wood burning stove are perfect for intimate and relaxing settings. The bedroom room on the upper level provides amazing views of Michelangelo's birth home and the small village of Lama below.

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, DVD player, 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 Rosa, it is our goal to make your stay the most memorable possible.

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Hi. We are Raul and Marianne. Thank you for stopping by to take a look at our little piece of paradise. We are an American couple living in Florida most of the year and of course at Casa Rosa at other times. We are certain you will love your time staying here, just as we do. We are the owners 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 Rosa. When we are in Florida, we leave the care of Casa Rosa in the capable hands of our friends, Sue & John. They will ensure that you have the best possible holiday here. If you are looking for the 'real' Italy, you have found it at Casa Rosa.

Why the Owner Chose Caprese Michelangelo, Arezzo, Italy:
When you enter the grounds you are immediately surrounded by the peaceful beautiful of the property including the beautiful landscaping, our amazing vineyard, the many different fruit trees, the olive trees, the ducks, rabbits, ponds, etc., etc. And just look up and there is the house where the famous Michelangelo was born and our our amazing surrounding hills.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
In our region of Tuscany, you find the Italy we all dreamed about. Of course our amazing local restaurants serve the wonderful, reasonably priced food you dreamed of. But in addition, just strolling down to our local grocery store you will meet the most wonderfully genuine Italian neighbors who will be so happy to share a few words with you (in Italian of course).
