“Perfect 12-day Italian retreat”

My wife and I stayed at Casa Cappellino for twelve days (we would have stayed longer if it hadn't already been booked). We had been looking for a quiet month-long rental in a beautiful setting where I could work on a book project and my wife could finish a quilt. We ended up staying a few weeks in Montepulciano and then coming here for almost two more weeks. In a nutshell, this place exceeded all our expectations. The cottage is a typical small Tuscan farmhouse that has been beautifully restored to modern standards. The owner is a master landscape architect and gardener so we were surrounded by flowers and fruit trees, quiet ponds and a lovely vineyard. The views from the windows and the back deck were spectacular--long vistas out over the mountains and the small town of Caprese Michelangelo (I could see the house where Michelangelo was born from our bedroom window). Inside, the kitchen, bathrooms, and furnishings were all new and first-rate, and both the front patio and back deck had full-sized tables for outdoor dining (and in my case, a fabulous outdoor desk to do my writing).

Our hosts were gracious and ever-helpful, attending to our needs and recommending local sites and eateries. We visited the Sanctuary at La Verna, a famous monastery and the place where St. Francis received the stigmata, we toured Michelangelo's birthplace, and we made several lovely walks in the nearby national park.

As for food, we made most of our own meals at the cottage using produce from the local market, but the local restaurants were also very good, a far cry from the touristy places you get in the rest of Tuscany.

I would highly recommend this place for couples or groups of up to 5/6 people. There are two bedrooms that can be configured with two twins (or one king), as well as a couch/futon. If you are looking for a quiet place to relax, take long walks, eat good food and drink good wine, and take a few day trips to see the sights, this is the place for you.
