La Tenuta Il Cicalino is a Tuscan farm stay tucked in the pristine countryside of the Alta Maremma just a few kilometers from the sea. The estate has a history that stretches across centuries but today can be traced back the Il Cicalino farm, founded in 1925 by the Vecchioni family from Pisa. It was then that the modern Tenuta Il Cicalino began to take form, with a wine and extra-virgin olive oil production that continues to this day and can be sampled in the estate's prestigious restaurant.

Il Cicalino has a truly green heart and protecting the local ecosystem and its biodiversity is the estate's top priority, making this farm stay in Tuscany ideal for those who are looking for a relaxing holiday surrounded by unspoiled landscapes and the opportunity to experience the authentic Tuscan countryside and its traditions.

Rural Hospitality with a Touch of Class

Il Cicalino offers six recently restored country farmhouses divided into 24 vacation apartments and 7 double guest rooms. The apartments and rooms share the same rustic charm that is Il Cicalino's calling card, with all the modern amenities and services guests need for a comfortable stay. From every window, the green hills of Tuscany stretch as far as the eye can see.

Relax and Recharge

Guests at Tenuta Il Cicalino can relax in one of the four outdoor pools surrounded by the rolling Tuscan hills, as well as a covered and heated pool that is perfect for when the temperature drops. The outdoor pools are scattered throughout the estate and are quick and easy to reach from the guest farmhouses. They are all surrounded by lush countryside and furnished with loungers and sun umbrellas. The covered pool is in the same building as the reception area and has showers and a changing room for guests' convenience.

Priceless Peace

Treat yourself to an extra touch of peaceful indulgence in the Il Cicalino spa, located in the heart of the estate and boasting two Finnish saunas for six guests, as well as a unique infrared sauna for those who have low blood pressure or circulatory issues as the temperature never exceeds 60° C. Guests who want to stay fit on holiday can train in the gym and fitness area with weights, stationary bikes, and TRX equipment.
