Loved the villa, had a wonderful time, great location. Rosado (owner) was incredibly helpful and made the stay a total breeze. Would highly recommend to anybody. Great local restaurants, very pretty area, easy to get to Sienna, Montepulciano, Chianti and Florence too.
Very nice villa with well maintained garden and pool.
Special note: a very well functioning AC (we had the hottest week in living history!).
orre Del Cielo is a beautiful and very well equipped villa to stay.
It has everything you would need for a very nice and relaxing holiday. It is also very child friendly.
Supermarkets and restaurants are in easy reach and a very short drive.
Rosado the owner is extremely friendly and very helpful. Thank you.
I would recommend this as an excellent and clean retreat for anyone to stay.
Thank you again.
This villa is fantastic - we were 2 families of four plus another lucky adult who got the tower. Sublime location deep in the countryside, very luxurious experience with everything thought through well by the owner. Thoroughly recommend
A comfortable house with extra large rooms.The kitchen is well equipped.
Rosado was a fantastic host and did all he could to make our stay memorable. The villa was lovely..the bedrooms were large with excellent ensuites. The fifth bedroom in the tower is up a steep flight of stairs with the bathroom on the ground floor..so perhaps not suitable for older/younger guests. The pool was great in beautiful gardens. Table tennis room also fun addition. Would definitely recommend Torre del Cielo.
Our stay at Torre del Cielo was delightful. Our trip to Monterchi from the US was fraught with problems, delayed flight, lost luggage, etc., which brought us to Monterchi after dark exhausted and stressed. But when we woke in the morning the beauty and peace of the villa and the grounds restored our spirits. We are very grateful for the warmth, guidance and practical support of Rosado, who was always easily available and attentive.
