Villa Cicolina is a lovely old villa with a beautifully preserved interior. Set in Tuscan countryside, rolling hills, vineyards and olive trees, the property features the villa set in heavenly gardens full of scented roses and little hidden pockets perfect for relaxing with a quiet drink. We even saw a tiny hummingbird drinking from the flowers. The infinity pool is phenomenal looking over the hills.
Our room was beautiful, clean, smelling of fresh garden roses which were in a vase near one of windows. Open the shutters and you look out over the beautiful gardens, the countryside and can see monte publicans on the hill in the distance, just amazing. The room was spacious and quaint with sloping wood beamed ceiling. The bed was of the European 2 beds pushed together and made up as a king which usually I don't like but I have to say the bed was super comfy and I slept really well, I love the bed! The bathroom is small but in keeping with the beautifully restored historical building and the shower head over the huge bath tub, while gentle in terms of water pressure, provided ample steady temperature hot water and was very relaxing.
Service at Villa Cicolina was very special. Alijah was there to welcome us when we arrived, driving up the long driveway bordered with cottage flowers. She was lovely and very helpful, showing us to our room, parking our car for us, taking our suitcases up 3flights of stairs to our room and organising coffees when we enquired where to get coffee as we were tired after our flight. By the way, villa cicolina coffee is superb! Aliyah was ready with suggestions for dinners nearby and sites to see which was tremendously helpful.
There is a little restaurant on site with a set menu on site opposite reception and we ate there, the food was delicious and good value, as was the wine. My only complaint is that I wish they had offered ice cream or cream with the delicious chocolate fondant at dessert. Service at dinner was efficient. Breakfast is a buffet and plentiful with cereals, juices, yoghurts, salami, prosciutto, cheese, breads, pastries, cakes, huge selection of delicious honeys, jams, fresh fruits and of course fabulous coffees made to order as you like. There is no hot component but there are eggs if you wish to boil them to your liking in the little boiler, very nice, and you don't need a hot breakfast with the ample spread of cold breakfast goodies.
I love Villa Cicolina with it's magical gardens, gorgeous location and comfy beds and hope we come back soon. Don't come here if you want cold, hi tech, minimalistic, modern five star hotel accom but if you want a wonderful stay that you will always treasure, in a gorgeous, beautifully maintained Tuscan villa looked after by Alijah and Sayed in those magical gardens within minutes drive of montepulciano, then you must stay at Villa Cicolina
