Overview

About the property

Torre del Cielo is a superb villa with 5 bedrooms each with bathroom ensuite, large garden, a 12 x 6 swimming pool that is warmed by all day sun exposure with fantastic panoramic views.

AIR CONDITIONING in each bedroom and a new play ground area of 1000sqm.

Torre del Cielo - 'Tower of the Sky' - takes its name from its outstanding position over the valley from which you can enjoy superb panoramic views.

The tower was built in middle of 1600 when it was used as a lookout for approaching enemies. In 1894 the building was expanded to include a stone farmhouse. This work was done by the great-grandfather of the current owner.

Traditional Tuscan style was maintained in the recent restoration of this property. The ceiling and floors are beautifully finished with terracotta tiles, and the ceilings have exposed wooden beams. The original wooden doors have all been refinished with antique hardware.

There is a new pool (12 x 6 m depth 1.5 mt; open from 1st May to1st October) in a beautiful garden with roses , lavender, jasmine, with cypresses and olive trees, offering stunning views over the valley towards the lush green tuscan hills.

The owner can put next to the pool a heated Jacuzzi (on request at time of booking): the cost is € 250 per week.

The pool area has a big gazebo, table, chairs and barbeques, from which to enjoy your al-fresco meal, the mediaeval town of Monterchi and the lush green Tuscan Hills are a backdrop.

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.

Review for stay from 23 July 2016 to 30 July 2016

  • 5 of 5

The villa was everything we expected, having plenty of space for our large family group. What we didn't expect was the personal, attentive approach of the owner himself making friends with our family and being available with help whatever our needs, be it large or small. Always available but not in the slightest intrusive. The villa itself was extremely comfortable and the outside living, dining and pool areas were second to none. If you go there you will love it. We only had one problem - we stayed for a week instead of two !

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.
