Villa Cicolina
Ranked #5 of 28 Hotels in Montepulciano
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 17, 2007

My wife and I just got back from a honeymoon in Italy and we both agreed that Villa Cicolina was the best place we stayed on our trip.

The rooms are beautifully decorated and have phenomenal views. The infinity pool is great as well.

The food at the villa is superb (definitely do dinner there). The grounds are laden with fig, olive, lemon and pomegranite trees, rosemary bushes, and of course, grape vines. Much of the ingredients in their dishes use food from their own gardens.

I must say that above all, the staff really is what made the place so great. Alessandro was extremely helpful and very friendly. When we arrived at the villa there was a bottle of prosecco chilling. Really a nice touch after a long flight and car ride.

In August, we spent 4 nights in Villa Cicolina. The hotel is wonderful, located in a very quiet place, even if it is very closed to the main road to Montepulciano. Our junior suite was very spacy, with a very comfortable, big and high (I had almost to climb) bed with a nice mosquito net canopy. The large swimming pool surrounded by olive-trees was really spectacular and not far from it, there was a very nice and quiet pool house with sofas where to read or Ihave a drink.
Breakfast was good with cakes, croissants, pies, different kinds of breads and marmelades, as well as eggs, ham or cheese (fresh orange juice instead of bottled juice would have been a plus).
The dinner was served in a little and cosy room or in the garden and food was absolutely great. Every dinner was a nice surprise with antipasto, fresh hand made pasta, meat or fish with vegetables and a delicious dessert. Everything was excellent and we had problems to finish up our plates.
The staff and waiters were very nice and helpful. In summary, a place to highly recommend.

Beautiful villa set 2km outside the mountaintop town of Montepulciano in Tuscany. Great for any type of family with beautiful views, friendly staff and even better food! Make sure you dine with them at least one night of your stay.

From the time we booked our reservations through our stay at Villa Cicolina, the staff and management were nothing but friendly, courteous and eager to make our trip as easy and memorable as possible. We were not disappointed! The Villa is on an absolutely breathtaking hillside in Tuscany with incredible views and great access to surrounding towns. Our room (Il Balcone) was huge, beautifully decorated in antiques, quiet and with beautiful views. We ate our dinner almost every night in the Villa's restaurant which had some of the best Italian food we've ever had. Everything was made fresh daily and was absolutely delicious! I would highly recommend taking a cooking lesson at the Villa if you would like to learn how to make the specialties served in the restaurant. It was a highlight of our trip!
The hotel manager even arranged for a rental car to be brought to the villa and picked up on our departure to save us the inconvenience of having to travel to pick one up.
The hotel provides all the extras you would expect from a fine hotel: bath robes, slippers, hair dryer, internet access, turndown service, etc.
We cannot say enough about how perfect our vacation here was. Do not believe the reviews that have negative comments about this place. We have stayed in some of the world's most expensive and exclusive hotels and our stay here was one of the most memorable we've ever had. Many thanks to the staff of the Villa for all they did to make our visit so wonderful!
If you are looking for an authentic Tuscan experience, peace and relaxation, a place to get away from it all, visit Villa Cicolina. You won't regret it!!

Beautyful property, very beautyful rooms, nice " in the sky " pool.

I have never before written a Trip Advisor review. However, as some of the reviews posted earlier cautioned us away from this beautiful villa, I want to set the record straight. The management here is warm and the service is extraordinary; the rooms are gorgeous, spacious, immaculate, and tranquil; the meals are some of the best we have had in dozens of trips to Italy, and served in the loveliest of restaurants. The pool is, as the pictures show, a once in a lifetime experience. The area is stunningly beautiful, if you can bring yourself to leave. Upon leaving we stopped at reception, eager to recommend the place to a friend taking a summer trip to Italy, and discovered that the hotel was almost fully booked for the entire summer. We loved the Villa Cicolina. I think I could live there.

I visited this villa with two girlfriends and we fell in love with the place and people. This place was the highlight of our 2 week Italy trip. The grounds were beautiful and everything was in bloom and lush like out of a painting. The countryside view of rolling hills was spectacular. The best part of the villa is the wonderful staff. They were so inviting and bent over backwards to help us. We took cooking classes with Franca which were awesome and fun( we laughed so much). I would highly recommend this place to anyone and already have to many friends. Thank you Vincente, Franca, Alessandro, Stephana, and the manager for a great time and making our trip special. We can't wait to come again.
