Featured in the Sunday Times as one of Europe’s top 100 Villas, Del Cielo (“of the Sky”) is a landmark building, the tower being seen from miles around.
This beautiful Italian stone-built villa is set into a landscape with 185 olive trees and magnificent views over the coast.
The interiors have been stylishly decorated for a relaxed and intentionally informal ambience. The open plan ground floor features a superb custom-built kitchen designed for the enthusiastic cook and a spacious circular living room with sweeping staircase to the first floor.
With 5 bedrooms, 3 of which deliberately spaced apart from the main building, the layout is ideal for large family gatherings or groups of friends.
The whole space is light and welcoming, and all the rooms connect directly with the exterior and have different and beautiful views.
“Del Cielo is heavenly - very well run and maintained, with excellent facilities. The swimming pool is as gorgeous as it looks in the photos. Even with 2 families at the villa, there are plenty of quiet corners for everyone to do their own thing, making for real relaxation and ease of living.” JD USA
