“Tuscany at it's Best!!”
Reviewed March 1, 2015 for a stay in November 2014

This was our first time to rent a villa in the Tuscany region. We contacted Rent-A-Villa and spoke to Nicole, who is now a good friend. She took our needs and location and found the perfect place. Located 3 miles from Siena. Our GPS took us right to the gate of the villa which was locked but the property manager, Jesus, answered his phone and was there in 10 short minutes. The Villa del Cielo with Caminetto (with fireplace) was beautiful. It's actually a 1,400 year old chapel with attached quarters for religious priests and nuns.

I can't tell you how beautiful the hillside view was from our villa. Each morning, the fog would would lift and provide an incredible view of not only Siena but the Tuscany valley region.

The bedrooms were spacious by Italian standards and very comfortable. The WIFI usually worked but the hot water heater couldn't keep up with the demand of six couples until the manager fixed it. The only real problem were the two electric gates allowing access to the property but we finally figured out how to make them work right, (again with the help of our manager).

The combination of the chapel, two kitchens, seven bedrooms and five bathrooms were amazing. Plenty of room for all. The fireplace was located off one of the kitchens in a sitting area which became a perfect place for a glass of wine after walking through Siena all day. Two outside arbors were perfect for those of us enjoying a evening cigar with our wine and of course stories of our travels of the day.

Weekly villa cleaning is required by rental agreement which was 190 euro per week. The utilities were an additional 500+ euros per week which is understandable because the villa was only 727 euros per week. When that's divided by six couples, it's still very reasonable. It was too cool to use the swimming pool but the grounds made for a very pleasant stroll each morning.

On the winding road to the villa you'll pass a restaurant called Ristoranti Montebuccio. Please stop and have dinner there. It's less than 2 minutes from the villa and has a varied menu. We ate there 2-3 times a week when we didn't want to drive back into Siena. It's a family atmosphere with great food, local beers and wines.

I apologize for this long review but we stayed here for three weeks and had a total of twelve couples come and go while were there. So this review encompasses all of our thoughts.

Ciao!
Bill
