“Beyond Expectation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at Villa Cicchi on recommendation. The villa is nothing like a generic hotel but a grand house unspoiled by the tourist industry. The rooms are furnished with antique furniture, the linen beautiful. Each day the rooms were replenished with bottled water, fruit and biscotti. The villa is a labyrinth of interesting rooms which the owners are only too happy to take you on a tour. The food was sublime. The breakfast table was groaning with prosciutto(cured there) cheeses, fruit, preserves and many cakes freshly baked! A cooked breakfast was also available. We stayed three nights and after dining there the first night decided we would dine there every night! The 5 course dinners were amazing, true to the area. My favourite was a Parmesan tart, something like a muffin but when cut oozed a Parmesan cream ..... I was lucky enough the get the recipe! Elena and Manuella were exceptional hosts. Nothing was a bother, were a wealth of information and we were put at ease from the moment we arrived. We are planning to return this year with friends!

We were so pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the working farm. The villa was sublime... stunningly gorgeous. They couldn't do enough to help. We ate dinner twice and would highly recommend the food. They make the jams on site, wine and olive oil come from the land. A quick zip by car gets you nto the quaint town..... the two main squares are spectacular.... we had incredible pizza on a side street.... recommended by Villa Cicchi staff. And for shopping, ask Elena (or her staff) where: Tod's, Prada, and especially Gran Sasso are located. Tod's and Gran Sasso have their main plants located within about an hour's drive. Also, I think the regional white wine is called "pecorino"..... a wonderful aperitif. Paul

Highly recommended, you must stay here. Words cannot describe how wonderful our stay at Villa Cicchi was. We spent several nights there after a long trip. Not only is the property picture perfect and beautiful but the people, Elena and her staff are warm, helpful and genuinely kind people. They made our stay the special holiday it was. The Villa is the historical family home, and still displays family pictures, the family’s antique furniture and even the family’s wine in the cellar. The gardens and pool are beautiful and it was a very relaxing venue to unwind and enjoy the beautiful view of Ascoli Piceno. Our most pleasant memories of Villa Cicchi are of the food in their restaurant. We ate all but a few of our meals at the Villa for our entire stay. Each night we tried something different from the menu and we were never disappointed. The quality was second to none and we were envious of the skill of Elena and her chefs. All of the ingredients are from the family farm or sourced locally. In addition to all of this Elena was extremely kind and helped us explore Ascoli, she even booked me into a hair dresser. We are already planning our return trip to Ascoli and will most definitely be staying at Villa Cicchi again. The Villa and especially the restaurant appeared to be very popular with the locals so we would suggest booking well in advance so you are not disappointed.

Room Tip: Room 1 is the largest and had the best view.

Spent one night at Villa Cicchi, and it was wonderful. Restored family farm with lots of charm. Our room had painted ceilings to look like a fresco. The family. especially Elena, were terrific. Elena is a trained chef and prepared a romantic dinner for two for us next to the fireplace. The next morning we had a thorough tour of the buildings, including the old, private chapel. Great breakfast. The Villa is a bit our of town, but worth the trip.

This lovely place would make a wonderful base for a week of relaxation, or for exploring the Piceno region; we were sorry that we could stay for only one night and would happily return. The villa and its surroundings are beautiful and tranquil; the family (who have owned the estate for a hundred years and clearly love it dearly) are charming, welcoming and immensely knowledgeable about their region. For anyone interested in the history and culture of the Marche, Villa Cicchi is perfect. And the food is outstanding, lovingly prepared from local produce. The rooms are large, with period furniture and plenty of thoughtful touches (fresh fruit, still and sparkling mineral water with a big glass goblet). The en suite bathrooms are well equipped, with big, fluffy towels and particularly delicious-smelling toiletries. Before we left, the signora took us on a tour of the house (including the cellars where the local anise liqueur is made), the gardens and the tiny chapel. A beguiling experience.

When entering the huge area full of history and nature, we felt like arriving in paradise. The short number of rooms and the fact, that this agriturismo is held by a family that also lives here, makes the trip very personal. Even a round trip through this relaxing place, to see the wine cellar, the very old church and the lovely garden, was guided for us by the Signora Cicchi.
The collection of historical furniture, decoration and functional objects is very impressive. Moreover, every room is different and has it own personality.
Also the breakfast was outrageous, most of all for an italian breakfast.
Only the location on a hill could cause a problem, if you do not have a car to get there, but even a walk by foot would be worth it.
We will definitly come back!

We wanted to visit Ascoli Piceno and the south Marche region so we chose Villa Cicchi, an Agritourismo about 3 km from Ascoli. You do need a car if you plan to stay here as it is fairly isolated, and in the evening if you want to eat or go for drinks in the town then you would need to drive/get a taxi. However, this was a fantastic place to stay. It is full of character - each room has a painted ceiling and they vary in style and size. The pool is a good size and was very quiet when we visited. The two meals we ate there (careful if you ask for lunch, you will get 4 courses with wine and won't be able to function for the rest of the day!) were 2 of the best meals we've ever eaten; traditionally Italian with fresh produce, and wine and olive oil from their own farm.

If you want to relax in a peaceful and secluded spot with excellent food and accommodation with character, then you should stay here.
