Info & Description

Villa Ciconia is situated at about 2 Kms from the Florence-Rome motorway exit,1 hour by car far from Rome,1 hour and half by car from Florence. You can find the train-bus station at about 1km from our hotel. The nearest airport is located near Rome; the name is 'Fiumicino'. You can arrive there in 1 hour and 30 minutes.
3) It is an elegant Villa which dates back to the 16th century and it is surrounded by an age-old park at the confluence of the river Chiani and the Carcaione. Local Historiography tells us that the structure was originally a tower, “La Turchinetta”, and was property of one of “Monaldeschi” of Cervara associated with Catherina of Sweden.
This enlargement was commissioned to Ippolito Scalza (1532 - 1618)
by the then owner of the tower Vincenzo Butius.
It was said that Butius, suffering from bad health, was advised by doctors to live near a river.
The villa was built, so that the Carcaione stream ran under one of the arches which upheld the structure.
River deposits, with time have caused the ground floor of the structure to become submerged and therefore
the “piano nobile” is now on the first floor.
The hotel which is situated on the 2nd floor, it is of only twelve rooms,the windows of which look onto the villa’s park.
Recent reconstructuring retained all the original characteristics of the villa (thick walls, large beams, and terracotta paving) Although guaranteeing every comfort, the atmosphere is typically tranquil.
Clients can enjoy the swimming pool situated in the park of the villa
The restaurant on the ground floor has two large halls.
In the main hall there is a lacunar ceiling with engraved and decorated strips, painted with allegorical motifs and landscape scenes. One can admire a stone fireplace which is thought to be the work of “ Ippolito Scalza”.
The excellently run Restaurant presents high class genuine Umbrian culinary cuisine. The wine cellar is well stocked with high quality
wines and of course Orvieto classico.
4) At about 1000 m. there are also a swimmingpool, football ground, tennis-ground to public use and we are doing our private swimming pool in our hotel for this summer.
5) We don't have elevator and handicapped facilities, we have hair dryer in the rooms.
The restaurant is closed in January and February , but the hotel is never closed. In our Villa's park there is a free parking area.
