Villa nel Cielo is a splendid villa situated in the Tuscan countryside on the border with the Umbria region, and just 3 km from Monterchi, where Piero della Francesca painted one of his most famous frescoes “La Madonna del Parto” towards the end of the 15th century.
The building - originally a lookout guard tower, built about the first half of the 1600 by Ferdinand II of the Medici - is characterized by its panoramic position. From the property, in fact, you can admire a fantastic view of the Valtiberina area and the Tuscan hills.
