Description

Il Cicalino is located in the East part of Tuscany, in an area known as Valtiberina, just 10 km away from Anghiari, recently designated as one of the 10 most beautiful hilltop "borghi" in Italy, also renowned for the famous battle painted by Leonardo Da Vinci. The area, historically populated by Etruscan, is rich in interesting places to visit, such as Città di Castello, Cortona and Arezzo. Sansepolcro, town of art and birthplace of several painters, among all Piero della Francesca, is only 20 minutes away from the property. Florence is 1,5 hours' drive away. Il Cicalino is part of an estate with a main villa and a few other houses, all belonging to the same family. The interiors have been recently renovated and lovingly furnished in an attractive country-style. A particular feature is the unusually big private swimming pool (16mx9), placed in a quiet and panoramic point of the garden, at the margins of a wood, ensuring guests complete privacy. The pool area has also been equipped with bar, barbecue, toilet and shower, and furnished with table and chairs, allowing guests to fully enjoy outdoor life.

Guest Reviews for Il Cicalino

Doreen L. (Santa Monica, Usa)

What bliss! Il Cicalino was the perfect place for our family to relax together and enjoy this wonderful corner of Italy for two heavenly weeks in June. The house is impeccably appointed with great attention to detail, retaining its very authentic character while being completely modern and comfortable. The setting is spectacular – the view from each window is like a dream. The terrace, pool, and grounds are incredibly lovely and well-maintained. We certainly enjoyed exploring many towns in the area, but were most content to spend our days in the tranquility of Il Cicalino and its breathtaking setting. We could not have asked for finer hosts than Toni and Peter, who arranged beautiful memories for our family and looked after us so thoughtfully. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcomed. In anticipation of our arrival late on a Saturday evening, they offered in advance to make arrangements to have a delicious meal waiting for us at the house, and the owner had been kind enough to provide breakfast basics for the next morning (as well as two very nice bottles of wine) so that we did not need to rush to the market on a Sunday morning to stock up. The kitchen in the house is well-equipped and was a pleasure to use when we wanted to eat in. In addition, there is a wood-burning BBQ grill, wood-burning pizza oven, and full outdoor kitchen on the terrace by the pool overlooking the valley – the perfect location for the very festive pizza-making demonstration and dinner Toni and Peter arranged for us with a local chef. When we requested a lesson in making pasta, they organized an unforgettable experience for us that included understanding local history and ingredients, a lot of laughter, and a sensational meal. They were able to suggest restaurants and local points of interest we would not have found otherwise. Toni and Peter’s kindness and resourcefulness ensured that our holiday was an absolute delight. We look forward to returning to Il Cicalino someday soon!
