This is a lovely old hotel below the city of Orvietto. It's just far enough out so that you're away from the tourist traffic. It has great old world charm with a delightful staff and a wonderful on-site restaurant. The rooms are old but they are really special. Our room looked out over the pool and a beautiful garden.

This is a great spot to base your self while visiting Orvieto and other locations nearby. It is very old and very beautiful with an excellent restaurant serving local wine and food. The staff are friendly and helpful and will recommend routes, shops, restaurants or attractions that may be of interest.

Hotel was slightly further out of Orvieto than we had realised but as we had a car and Orvieto has good car parks it was OK. Without a car would have been a longish walk in the heat as there is no straight way to walk across the river. Decent restaurant in the garden making good pizzas. Very reasonably priced.... More

The place is slightly out of town and therefore very quiet. It sits in a small park. Due to the origin of the building, the rooms can be a bit dark because of the small windows. We had a room in one of the towers which was very big, yet the bathroom was tiny. This again due to the nature... More

We really enjoyed our stay! The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful! We loved the food and the atmosphere overall! We had hoped the Villa would be more centrally located to the historic city, but we figured out the public bus system and made it work!

This is a stone built villa. It's like being in a restored castle. Lots of character. We stayed only one night. The room was wonderful. One small problem -- the room had an air freshener -- somewhere. It was too strong a smell. The desk staff tried to locate the air freshener, but couldn't. Staff very responsive and helpful. The...

We spent one night at the Hotel Villa Ciconia during our recent trip to Italy. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful making our check-in a breeze. Our room was spacious and clean. The continental breakfast the following morning more than met our needs. I would definitely recommend the villa if you are planning on spending some time in... More

It was a good alternative, not far from Orvieto center. The house is beautiful, spacious rooms, very neat and clean. The service was fine, all attentive and friendly. Overall good, but not much charm, considering its potencial.

This large former private villa/home is just outside Orvieto's walls. Great if you have a car as Orvieto is more parking friendly than other walked cities we visited. Trickier if you don't have a car. They had a great restaurant onsite that served an excellent meal. The painted paneled ceiling was beautiful! There is a pool that looked inviting but... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It is an elegant Villa which dates back to the 15th century and it is surrounded by an age-old park at the confluence of the river Chiani and the Carcaione. Local Historiography tells us that the structure was originally a tower, “La Turchinetta”, and was property of one of “Monaldeschi” of Cervara associated with Catherina of Sweden.This enlargement was commissioned to Ippolito Scalza (1532)by the then owner of the tower Vincenzo Butius.It was said that Butius, suffering from bad health, was advised by doctors to live near a river.The villa was built, so that the Carcaione stream ran under one of the arches which upheld the structure. River deposits, with time have caused the ground floor of the structure to become submerged and therefore the “piano nobile” is now on the first floor.The hotel which is situated on the 2nd floor, it is of only 12 rooms, with old style furniture and canopy bed,the windows of which look onto the villa’s park.Recent reconstructuring retained all the original characteristics of the villa (thick walls, large beams, and terracotta paving) Although guaranteeing every comfort, the atmosphere is typically tranquil.The restaurant on the ground floor has two large halls.In the main hall there is a lacunar ceiling with engraved and decorated strips, painted with allegorical motifs and landscape scenes. One can admire a stone fireplace which is thought to be the work of “ Ippolito Scalza”.The excellently run Restaurant presents high class genuine Umbrian culinary cuisine. The wine cellar is well stocked with high qualitywines and of course Orvieto classico.In the Hotel we have a outdoor swimmingpool but at about 1000 m. there are also a indoor swimmingpool, football ground, tennis-ground to public use.In our Villa's park there is a free parking area.Villa Ciconia is situated at about 2 Kms from the Florence-Rome motorway exit, 1 hour by car far from Rome,1 hour and half by car from Florence. You can find the train-bus station at about 1km from our hotel. The nearest airport is"Fiumicino" located near Rome, you can arrive there in 1 hour and 30 minutes ... more   less
