Villa Cecilia is a beautiful villa located just outside of Siena that dates as far back as the 13th century.  Originally a watchtower and adjoining accommodation for its guards, Villa Cecilia today has been restored to offer well-appointed holiday accommodation.  It features many original and traditional features such as chestnut beams and terracotta floors and features charming arches on the ground floor framing the pretty reception rooms. It is in a perfect location for exploring central Chianti with it many wineries, castles and hilltop villages and also Siena with its medieval city centre and magnificent main piazza.

Due to its traditional stone construction and hilltop position, Villa Cecilia is cool even during the summer months. The spacious grassy lawns of the estate are perfect for families with children. The location is ideal for wine lovers because it is a great starting point for trips to Chianti Classico and the charming villages of Gaiole, Castellina and Brolio Castle, which are all within easy reach of the Villa.
