“Great villa and fantastic location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

We normally do not like classic design, and prefer modern one. The reason for that is that in most cases classic design hotels have a smell of past ages and this smell is not quite pleasant. If you have ever been in an old hotel you know what I am talking about. The great thing about this villa is that it combines the classic design, antic furniture with the freshness and cleanness.

The villa is situated in the heart of Toscana, in the most beautiful valley I have ever seen – d’Orcia. 5 minutes’ drive from villa and you can find Montepulciano, 30 minute and you are in Montalcino. There are many other great places in the valley, but I have given those two as an example for their famous wine productions.

Villas restaurant is nice and cosy. The breakfast is well prepared – you can find a variety of dishes to your taste. Dining is a pleasant experience, I would specifically recommend tagliata. The wine list is big.

The owners are always there to help you. For example, when my wife asked to change the room because of the noise from the street they have done it without problem.

The villa is full of small details that make you stay there pleasant. LCD TV is a rare thing in Italy, especially in antic hotels, but surprisingly it here. The room and tables in the restaurant are decorated with fresh flowers. And so on..

To conclude – this was a great experience and I would gladly come back.

Dear Guest,

thank you very much for the beautifull words you spent for describing our relais.

We totally agree with your idea of the style of the Villa and other words would not be so able to describe Villa Cicolina even better.

We are proud that all the efforts we usually did are appreciated by people like you.

We hope to seeing you soon again at Villa Cicolina.

Warm Regards,

Villa Cicolina staff

I don't even know where to begin....Our room was beautiful, spacious, charming and clean and with a wonderful view.
I've been to a lot of beautiful places with my husband during our honeymoon but Villa Cicolina stole my heart. I can't express how special our stay was.
The hotel and ground are pretty good and the staff could not be more helpful. The furnishing and decor were beautiful and the restaurant was top notch in regards to both cousine and ambiance.
I would not to hesitate to recommend this wonderful Villa.
We will be back soon....!!!!

This was our first trip in Italy and we were looking for a different experience and not just the normal "sightseeing vacation" since was our honeymoon. Villa Cicolina definitely met our expectations...Sayed, Alijah and all the staff was amazing and they deeply took care of us.
We stayed in the room "Cortona" wich was very beautiful and furnished with typical furniture. Also the grounds were spectacular with a little chapel and an incredible swimming pool overlooking the Montepulciano's hills. We had a very enjoyable cooking class with their own chef Mimmo who helped us to prepare the traditional Tuscan dishes (pici, tagliata etc...) wich the waitress Florian served us the dinner.
This vacation proved to be perfect: beautiful and relaxing and friendly environment, and the room was large, confortable and with lovely views.

My boyfriend and I rented a car and spent the last week of April 2012 driving around Tuscany and I have to say Villa Cicolina was the best place we stayed in during this trip. It was a tad difficult to locate but the lady manager who picked up our call for help was really helpful and even got out to receive us when we arrived. I was so taken by the gardens surrounding the 500 year old villa. The gardener who goes about his business quietly really made the place look terrific, he even offered to switch on the jacuzzi for us when he saw us hanging out near it (water was too cold to dip in but it was refreshing just to hang out). The grounds were well kept and clean and offers a great view especially by the pool. The main building is permeated by the faint scent of flowers everyday. Our room upstairs was so quaint with all the antique furniture. I loved looking at the details of every piece. The view from the room was unblocked and so beautiful. We spent quite a bit of time hanging out at the garden and terrace soaking in the sun and just enjoying the view of flowers. Although there was no pool service, staff at the villa were always willing to help us out, all we needed to do was ask. When we asked for recommendations to visit a winery, they recommended Villa Sant'Anna where we discovered some great wines and had a splendid time. Overall, Villa Cicolina offered a really charming and lovely experience. We will definitely recommend this place and hope to visit again.

P.S: We did not dine at the restaurant simply because we were somewhere else till after dinner hours everyday.

Room Tip: We stayed in the room Le Perle.

Idyllic. Welcoming. Accommodating. Delicious. Outstanding . . . adjectives that perfectly describe Villa Cicolina and their staff. In October 2012, my husband and I got married in Montepulciano. Based on the beautiful pictures of the villa and the surrounding area, we decided that Villa Cicolina would be "home base" for our wedding. Our immediate families were a part of this trip so we booked two rooms (Il Balcone, Lavigna) and the private cottage. From the moment we reached out to the villa to book our rooms we knew we had chosen the best place to get married and spend a wonderful week in Tuscany.

You can definitely tell the owners strive to make Villa Cicolina the best stay in Tuscany. The attention to detail is remarkable. The villa rooms are beautifully decorated and super clean. The views from the upper rooms are breathtaking. Every morning, the villa florist is on site making fresh floral arrangements for every room in the villa. The grounds are immaculate. The gardener is there around the clock, tending to the grounds. I mean when you consider that it's a 19th century structure, it is so well maintained.

When it comes to the staff, again the owners are making sure they have the best. Everyone is so welcoming and really go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. I can't say that I've stayed anywhere else where I've felt so at home.

The food at the on-site restaurant is outstanding. Our wedding reception far exceeded our expectations. Our pasta was handmade that morning by Mimmo!

This isn't your typical 5-star experience because it's not "big-box" five star but Villa Cicolina is a five-star place that is authentic. If you want to experience the best of Tuscany, choose Villa Cicolina as your home base. You will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: For the best view - Il Balcone.

We enjoyed and celebrated our Wedding at Villa Cicolina and must say that everything at this wonderful old Villa was perfect. The house keeping, front desk, manager, owner, food and my favorite Romanian guy that does everything including taking care of the entire property who also dons a suit and drives us to the church was beyond expectations.

Rooms were perfect, clean and roomy. This was all accompanied by the beautiful landscape that makes Villa Cicolina. If you're looking to get married here contact Italia Celebrations owned and operated by Brenda Babcock. She fits your budget and doesn't miss a beat. Otherwise, this Villa is a must.

Too much to describe, but it was unforgettable.

Go here!

My Wife and I stayed at Villa Cicolina during our honeymoon. The property was beautiful. Our secluded cottage was the perfect balance of comfort and convenience. The food was amazing. We took a cooking class our first night which was very fun. Sayed was there to assist us throughout our stay and Aliyah hand picked the perfect vineyards for us to visit and arranged everything. Our only regret is that we could only stay two nights, this place deserves a week or more! We'll be back someday!!!
