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 celings have exposed wooden beams. The original wooden doors have all been refinished with antique hardware.
