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.
Originally a 17th century chapel, Villa del Cielo has been tastefully converted into a charming and unique villa rental in Tuscany for up to 8 people. 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 is surrounded by owned land with olive grove (4 hectares) and 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.
Many of the guests of the villa have decided to celebrate their wedding in this charming setting along with their closest friends and relatives.

We had 13 of our family members at the home - including 4 children and a baby. The house and area are just absolutely lovely. The host and caretaker were quite helpful. It was unseasonably cold in late May so the house was a bit chilly so we probably should have purchased firewood or something. We loved all the nearby hilltop towns and it is an excellent spot to explore from. Enjoy!!!
