Client Reviews for Cà di Cicala


After two days of hurly-burly in Rome we arrived at this tranquil oasis to a warm welcome from the housekeeper and in time to see a fine sunset over the hills. A lovely peaceful location.

Fantastic week enjoying the peace, sunshine and nature all around, even saw a firefly. Had great fun using the pizza oven. Would definitely return to Ca di Cicala.

Our holiday here was superb. In reality the property is even better than described in the brochure. It has such a beautiful setting it is almost fictitious. Stunning unspoilt surroundings, well equipped, a nature lovers paradise. If you really like to get away from it all, which we do, then this is the ideal place. So often these sort of places are described as off the beaten track but are not. This property really is off the beaten track for once and that is what makes it so amazing and somewhere where we will definitely return. The locals were incredibly friendly, kind and helpful and from this villa location you have the freedom to explore charming villages and towns where you can indulge yourself in the most wonderful produce which is a joy to sample at the local markets with few tourists around. We can't wait to return but next time for longer. Thank you for having such an unusually lovely property and for a holiday we will always remember.

The entire experience from initial contact with staff to the holiday was enjoyable and recommended. Thank you.

I came to stay here with my Mummy and Daddy for my very first holiday. I loved the house as it is very secluded and surrounded by nature. I've seen colourful lizards, wild boar, fireflies at night and big fluffy bumble bees. Whilst here we have visited many places and I especially liked Cortona and Gubbio.

Stunning location; the house is lovely and we had everything we needed. Excellent visits to Cortona, Perugia and Gubbio. Main restaurant at the top of the mountain served very good food. Cable car tested the nerves!

super location and excellent service

Lovely peaceful house. Very hot, so the pool was perfect. Really enjoyed the restaurant close by, and had our best meal in Cortona - fab place and interesting drive there! Lots of wildlife - pigs at night; and we were very excited to follow a porcupine along the drive at night. Trips out to Gubbio and Castiglione del Lago - hairpins made it fun! Even managed a homemade pizza in the pizza oven.

What an idyllic setting! The house is wonderful - tastefully renovated and fitted out - very comfortable and well equipped with every necessity. We enjoyed its comfort and the garden and pool. One evening coming home we were thrilled when a wild boar crossed the track up from the water hole - brilliant! Thank you for making a most enjoyable, relaxing holiday possible - we'd love to return.

What a wonderful spot! We have had a great time here over the two weeks. We'll miss the stunning valley, the seclusion and the lovely swimming pool (beware the steep steps!). The local wildlife has kept us fascinated... Everyone in the village has been very friendly and helpful, it's been a fantastic holiday.
