This was a very special place for my husband and me. We felt relaxed and pampered in a perfect Italian countryside environment. A friend recommended it to me and she was spot on! The grounds were beautiful, the rooms were special, and the separate dining room made you feel like you were in the heart of Tuscany....because you are! You are 2 miles from downtown Montelpulciano, 40 min from Montalcino, 40 from Sienna, and close to the most wonderful vineyards. We ate and drank our way through the region, talked with winemakers and restaurant owners and loved the relaxed and beautiful scenery. You must stay at Villa Cicolina!
