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.
