Villa Torcello is an exceptional holiday home set in a hillside estate near Kamala Beach with breath-taking views across the Andaman Sea. This five-bedroom retreat brims with luxurious comforts, yet its contemporary design, arranged over three levels, blends harmoniously with its tropical surrounds.
