“Dream Wedding at Villa Cicolina”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

If you are considering Villa Cicolina, you should just stop thinking about it and make your reservation now. We just had our wedding there in mid-June and it was perfect. I mean perfect. The setting was gorgeous, the food (prepared in the villa's kitchen by the villa's own staff) was exquisite, and the service was superlative. Anything we needed, it was there. Anything we wanted, we only had to ask. Wine tasting, cooking class, local wines in the divine pool area, all right there on site at this picturesque villa with a view worthy of a postcard or a painting. Montepulciano is quite close, only a few minutes by car, and Cicolina can help you plan other day trips if you'd like. It is about 30 minutes to the Chiusi-Chianciano train station. The managers Sayed and Aliya were exceptional. They are kind and thoughtful and extremely good at making sure you have a good stay. I truly can't say enough about this place. Do yourself a favor and stay here. Then, like us, you'll be stuck dreaming about it and wondering when you'll be able to go back.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong.

The Villa Cicolina is a fantastic boutique hotel a four minute drive from the gates of the city of Montelpulciano. The owners are really friendly, speak amazing English, and helped us to arrange winery visits etc.

The villa has a lovely outdoors area with gardens full of flowers and greenery, a secluded pool with recliners for sunbathing - including a view over the Tuscan hills - and a fabulous dining room and outdoor eating area. Breakfasts are great with a choice of eggs, pastries, cereals etc and the evening meals are either eaten outside or inside depending on the weather (€33 per person plus wine).

If you want to go for dinner in the town, it's a four minute drive to the parking area by the city gates, from where you can walk up into the city. There are some amazing viewing spots at sunset for a picture postcard moment.

A number if people have struggled to find the villa, as your Satnav won't take you to the front door. Having been back onto the map, and my Satnav, I recommend that you head to this address ... Via delle Caggiole Prime 2, 53045‎ Montepulciano‎ Tuscany. About 20 yards from this spot, you will see a large, industrial winery / cantina (have a look on Googlemaps before you set off), go up the 'white road (or track!) next to this. You pass a house on the left, then a steep road up to the right. Just after this, you will see a yellow wall with "Villa Cicolina" written on it. The car park is up the short track 20 yards before this on the right hand side.

Enjoy!

We spent 4 wonderful nights here, celebrating our 20th anniversary. Our suite was very roomy, spacious bathroom, the bed was the most comfortable bed in all of Italy. The grounds are so beautiful and relaxing, the staff very friendly, spoke good english, very helpful. We enjoyed a yummy, full breakfast every morning, we ate dinner here every night, their house wine and olive oil are delicious, we took a cooking class and did the wine tasting...truly the highlight of our trip.
Did a day trip to Montepulicano...amazing village, love it. Next time, renting a car to see more villages

This is probably one the best hotel stays my wife and I have ever had. The grounds are immaculately maintained, the service was fantastic, and provided you have a rental car (which you must to navigate Tuscany), you are a 5 minute drive from the base of Montepulciano. The pool area looks even better than it appears in the photos on TA and the hotel website, and, despite the hotel being booked to capacity, the grounds and pool area never felt crowded. The grounds are peaceful and gorgeous. Everyone on the staff was extremely helpful, recommended fantastic restaurants, and were very accommodating. Logistically, you are an easy 3-5 minute drive from Montepulciano. Parking is very easy and free after 8pm. The breakfast is also amazing and was a highlight of each day. Would give Villa Cicolina 6 stars if possible.

Room Tip: The views from the Il Camino suite are phenomenal.

The place, beautiful surroundings, the lovely staff, the amazing home-made food, the wine tasting, everything was top notch! We cannot wait to come back as had one of the best holidays there. A car is a must and can use the villa as a base to visit the surrounding cities of Montepulciano, Monteciello & Pienza.

We stayed at Villa Cicolina, Montepulciano, Italy during our trip to Tuscany July 2012. The best way I can describe walking into the Villa Cicolina is like stepping into a beautiful dream. Amidst the green, verdant, rolling hills of Tuscany are the expansive grounds of Villa Cicolina. Our room was a very-generously-sized junior suite with a large canopied queen bed and bedroom and a large, separate living room. The whole villa has beautiful brick exposure, ceramic tile floors and meticulous attention to every detail. Even the bathroom was very clean and a good size. Both the bedroom and living room had sweeping views of the Tuscan hills. Every night, you can opt to have dinner in the beautiful villa garden which is like a dream. The food and wine and ambiance were amazing as was the service.
The villa was also a 5 minute drive to historic Montepulciano with beautiful terra cotta roofs and brick buildings. There we had amazing wine tastings and the best meal of our lives.

One of the best places I have ever visited. You need to rent a car because otherwise accessing beautiful Montepulciano is hard. You feel at home, delicious food and wine. The views are awesome. Romantic combined with cool.
