We happily returned back to this Relais Chateau where a genuine Italian hospitality joined to top service is offered by the Baracchi family. The location of this establishment lies in the val di Loreto countryside near Cortona. In a relaxed atmosphere one can enjoy great views of meadow, olive trees, vineyards and farms. Il Falconiere itself produces a few refined... More

We stayed in July 2013 and cannot speak too highly of our experience. Our room was spacious and well appointed, the food was fantastic (breakfast was lovely, dinner was exceptional) and the wine was excellent. The staff was welcoming and accommodating - very friendly. We stayed for four nights, and very much look forward to going back. Thank you Sylvia... More

My fiance and I and our dear friend stumbled onto Il Falconiere while driving around Cortona searching for wedding locations. Unfortunately, it was out of our price range, but we decided to spend the night. We got a suite and spent a blissful day and night lounging around the pool, drinking wine and cocktails, and enjoying our beautiful room. The... More

We stayed at Relais Il Falconiere in May and then in October of 2013, each time for 3 nights. On the first visit we were so taken with the views of the Valdichiana and Cortona and our senses so overwhelmed that we needed a second visit to taste it more slowly. On neither occasion did we stay in the main... More

What used to be an old villa became one of the most charming and romantic scapes right in the heart of Tuscany. Awesome rooms, superb service and unbelievable wines produced in the property. The views are stunning and the surroundings are beautiful. There are a handful of famous little towns at less than an hour of the hotel. Rooms are... More

Staying here for one night as part of a business trip in Tuscany was a shame only in that it was just one night. Nestling in the hills a short distance from Cortona Il Falconiere is more than just a restaurant with rooms. The rooms are scattered round the property and whilst some are on the small side I was...

If you are looking for hotel in Tuscany that offers the highest level of service in a magnificent setting, look no further. Although our stay there was only two nights, we can't wait to return. The hotel has the flavor of a classic Italian estate with incredible views of the Tuscan landscape and a huge array of fragrant trees, flowers,... More

We recently stayed at Relais Il Falconiere in a Junior Suite. The hotel has a beautiful location and great views. We chose the hotel as it was a Relais and Chateaux property so expected it to have a high overall standard. The fine dining restaurant was excellent although service was not overly warm. The terrace has wonderful views but there... More

There are so many wonderful things to say about Il Falconiere. Where should I begin. Before our arrival, the front desk staff were always available to answer questions and organize our 1 week stay.

The art of refining quality is achieved by caring about details that make a difference.An ideal setting for those who love the beauty of the countryside, the atmosphere of the Relais is quaint with characteristic old-fashioned Tuscan charm. The twenty-two rooms are elegantly furnished-each unique in color and décor and reflecting the classic, refined style of important Tuscan homes. A few rooms are in the antique villa, some attached to the villa’s chapel and others in the cottage. All share the view of the magical landscape of the Cortonese countryside and are fully furbished with every modern comfort.La THESAN ETRUSCAN SPA has the goal of reawakening all of your senses through the harmony of the environment and the flavours and tastes of Tuscany.The Etruscan Thesan Spa guides you to discover the true relaxation, with a unique and unrepeatable involving all five senses.

Staying with us will leave you with everlasting memories.The restaurant is on two floors with a glass and wrought-iron conservatory, overlooking the outside dining terrace with its ancient fishpond and rose-clad pergola.
