This place is so special, from the family history, to the buildings, to the astonishing views, to the remarkably fresh and delicious food. Our room, number 11, was next to the former chapel, with high ceilings, a huge fireplace, and a beautiful bedroom. The bath was strange, a few steps down from the main room, but charming. I did take... More

First let me say the Hotel and staff live up to all the great reviews. the food is wonderful and we felt the service was excellent. In fact on arrival we found our room was lacking drawer space. After explaining this the owner herself appeared with another bureau for us which was very accommodating. Now that said, let me explain... More

My daughter and I attended a 6 day cooking school and virtually everything about the experience was a 5 star experience. Only disappointment was that the spa opened at 10 am and closed late afternoon. Accommodations, food, service, were excellent. She is a vegetarian and they were very accommodating to her needs. The setting is beyond description and it was... More

Beautiful inn close to Cortona. Peaceful location with excellent rooms. Surrounded by olive trees, vines, and a stunning view of Cortona atop its hill. In addition to the superb food, they also own a country restaurant about 20 minutes away that is more relaxed and also has excellent food. The room decor is antique rather than contemporary.

This is a beautiful venue as long as you know what you are going for. On the grounds is a Michelin restaurant, spa, cooking school, and winery. All of the offerings are wonderful. The reason we had an issue is because our agent booked us here as a way to get to Cinque Terre and Sienna and also see Tuscany.... More

I recommend checking in as soon as you can and staying as long as possible! They have an amazing infinity pool spanning from inside the spa to outside the building. You can choose between spa and massage rooms without disappointment. See the falcon or attend a cooking class. Visit the winery or just buy the wine, like we did. It... More

We just returned from 6 nights at Il Falconiere. It is a first class operation. Cooking lessons with Silvia Barrachi, a Michelin star chef, were an amazing experience. She is passionate about her cooking and is a great teacher. We learned so many little cooking tips. The restaurant was wonderful, great service and excellent food. We were never rushed and... More

we stayed one night, the location is great but the rooms deserve a full renovation, especially the bathroom (no bath, tiny shower, very tacky from the 80's). The doors are very old and not soundproofed at all. It was very cold (early October) and we had just a very slim cover, no duvet cover. Gardens and spa are beautiful, we... More

We had a tour of the winery with a wine tasting and lunch. A nice variety of Baracchi wines to taste before and during lunch. It was one of the best meals we had during our entire twelve day stay in Italy.

We stayed in a room located in the annex. The windows from our room framed a beautiful view of the hilltop town of Cortona. The property and setting are spectacular and the accommodations were very comfortable and elegant. The outdoor dining terrace provided us the perfect setting for a romantic and beautifully prepared dinner the first night. The second night... More
