Siena Villa Rental Photos and Description

Max Beds: 14, Min Beds: 14, Double Beds: 6, Single Beds: 2, Baths: 5, Reference: 4312

Located just five kilometers from Siena, this villa offers an ideal combination of elegant simplicity and historical charm and comes complete with its own chapel, all which create a unique experience. Along with the private swimming pool, this holiday accommodation is nestled within the Tuscan countryside, offers peaceful views, and has a very family-friendly atmosphere.

Attached to the chapel by a corridor is a small villa (Caminetto) that can accommodate up to 5 people, and is rented as Villa del Cielo with Caminetto. The villa's outdoor amenities include a lovely swimming pool (12m x 6m), shaded parking, and sitting/dining areas which seat up to 12 people, with views of the vineyard-covered hills.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

As a group of 10 friends and neighbors, we really enjoyed all the space, both inside and out, to be together or to have privacy. Loved cooking together and comfortable dining areas! The grounds and pool were delightful!

Enjoyed Most:

The very spacious dining areas, lovely outdoor spaces and the chapel living room was just beautiful. The view of surrounding Tuscany was just amazing!

Enjoyed Least:

A bit difficult to get home to and not really within walking distance to dining or groceries.

Surrounding Area:

Short drive into Siena and very accessible to several Tuscan hill towns. Beautiful countryside!

Nearby Events or Locales:

Don't remember the name but we did have a nice dinner there. The walk would be about 25 minutes over quite narrow and curving country roads.

Tips or Restaurants:

We found everything needed right at the villa, including beach towels. It would have been nice to have a bigger supply of liquid dish soap and dish washer detergent.

Directions:

We did use a GPS but found it a mistake to use the given coordinates. Best way to find was by the actual address.

Check In Out:

We called the key holder as instructed and both in/out went very smoothly.

Amazing! ...

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Amazing!

Enjoyed Most:

Spacious but not overwhelming and comfortable for large groups. Views amazing! Surrounded by olive trees and a vineyard next door. Jesus, the caretaker, is very helpful and always available (limited English).

Enjoyed Least:

Entrance into property is a tight fit especially if you rented a large car or van. The road to the villa is narrow watch so you need to watch for speeders.

Surrounding Area:

Views and beautiful countryside.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Siena NOT walkable. Road narrow and very hilly

Tips or Restaurants:

Basic necessities for everyday day use are needed (paper towels ,TP,soap). You need to pretty much buy everything for the kitchen (sponges, plastic wrap, dishwashing liquid,sugar, salt and pepper). Each couple brought their own personal items from home. Internet spotty at best. Restaurant in Florence "La Giostra" is recommended. When traveling to Florence drive to outskirts of Florence than take tram in-- so much more convenient then parking inside Florence. Get a good guide book be sure to check out San Gimignano and Orvieto. Be mindful of utility use as it can wind up being expensive at end of stay especially if you need to use the A/C.

Directions:

They were actually spot on , just be mindful of staying on A1 (right lane)

Check In Out:

Check in and out very smooth.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

We found the property to offer one of the best vacation experiences we had ever had. The view was staggeringly beautiful, the outdoor area, including a few places to enjoy a meal or coffee, the pool and the neighborhood were lovely, and the villa itself--a work of art. Very well restored and maintained.

Enjoyed Most:

Truly hard to decide, there were a few. The way the house lay out allowed people to have their private space and to gather easily. The view from the arbors was breathtaking. The pool was perfectly placed so that late night swims did not disturb anyone sleeping. Sitting in the chapel was incredible. And, of course, there was Jesus (the manager) who was wonderful, very responsive to our requests (he repaired the WiFi and pool lighting which we let him know were not working, and was helpful with restaurant and driving directions).

Enjoyed Least:

If I go back and carefully read through the description, I find that it clearly states that the place is only partially air conditioned. However, that was unfortunately kind of a surprise. Given that the week we were there it was unusually hot (in the 90"s), it made the chapel living space uncomfortable.

Surrounding Area:

As previously mentioned, the views were incredible. We took a walk through the neighborhood on one of the days. (Facing the villa from the street we went to the left). We wanted to see more of the places we'd passed by when driving, and it was well worth it. There was an abandoned farmhouse, several caves dug out of rock that were very intriguing (but none of us was equipped to go farther than the entrance), and a castle that we thought was open to the public, but turned out to be a private residence.

Nearby Events or Locales:

I would not recommend walking on the streets in the dark. It's really dark, and could be a little iffy (no sidewalks and lots of curves).

Tips or Restaurants:

These owners were incredible. It was like they were entertaining us rather than renting to us! They provided beach towels, bath soap, washcloths and even a bottle of wine and bowl of fruit. Who knows if those last two were left by the people before, but who cares. It was really fantastic.

Directions:

I'm not good with directions, so I have no idea. But, here's what happened. We went the wrong way. Apparently the villa can be reached two ways. One, call it the "right way" comes from the main road, on which the grocery store is located. Th

  • 4 of 5

Overall:

It was lovely. View of Siena was just beautiful. We felt quite secure with the electronic gates.

Enjoyed Most:

It was so spacious--we had a wonderful room where we could all gather to discuss our day and plan for the next. Loved that it had televisions and they even had American news channels from which to choose.

Enjoyed Least:

There were a few kinks we had to learn about, like if we had no hot water which buttons to push.

Surrounding Area:

It was very close to Siena, which we loved, and not ever far to drive to surrounding areas, no more than 2 hours to go to any other town of interest in the Tuscany region.

The Ristorante Montebuccio is just a blink down the hill from the villa and it is the best place to eat. Has great selections from salmon to pizza and we ate there often but we often had to have a reservation--it is that good!

Nearby Events or Locales:

Siena was nearest and it is a bit of a drive.

Tips or Restaurants:

Ristorante Montebuccio, which is very close. In Siena, Nannini's on Piazza il Campo and Guido's.

Directions:

Had to have a gps for sure.

Check In Out:

No, Jesus, the caretaker, was there immediately and often when we needed him, and checking out was what we had anticipated.
