I stayed at the Relais for two days. It is a lovely property in the middle of the Tuscan countryside, with beautiful gardens and a small but well equipped Spa, nested in the hills covered by olive trees and winery. I appreciated the elegant details in the bedroom furniture, the bed linens and table linens (Busatti). The breakfast was amazing... More

A friend and I spent three days at Il Falconiere last week. From the food to the facilities to the friendliness to the staff, everything was excellent. The owners/hosts - Riccardo and Silvia - are wonderful welcoming people who make you feel at home. We dined at all three of the restaurants and each one was great (in its own... More

Cortona is breathtaking even in the rain. We stayed here for our honeymoon. The rooms were country luxury and you were able to get rest and relaxation in this beautiful villa. The spa services were amazing! We had lunch our first day there and it was overpriced for the meal. Although it was good, the portions were small and it... More

I really wonder how this hotel can be member of Relais Chateaux group. started with a very poor welcome. no air conditioning in the room. you can not open the windows due to millions of mosquitos. humid and smelly air in the room gives a feeling of Turkish Bath. blankets are old and smelly also. I had to kill three... More

We had a very good time as a "wedding break" early June at Il Falconiere. We really liked the place - rustic but chic with a true feeling of authenticity. Staff was really nice and helpful, they upgraded us as we were on our mini honeymoon (got married May,30th). We enjoyed Sylivia's personality and sensational way of cooking. We had... More

We recently had a 20 day trip to Italy taking us through several of the regions. We spent 5 nights in Tuscany Region staying at the Relais II Falconiere & Spa. I cannot imagine a more restful place to stay. The combination of top-notch service, a restaurant that exceeded our expectations, a vista that was truly beautiful taking in the... More

It happened that our three day stay was accompanied by almost continuous rain - something that probably happens once every five years! The scattered layout of the hotel does not lend itself to wet weather, although the staff were very good about collecting us and providing umbrellas etc. It is a lovely property with the comfortable rooms scattered through vines...

This is a truly lovely place. The food, wine and service are fantastic. We spent five nights here in August with our 2 year old. Highlight was our cooking class with Sylvia, who is wonderfully entertaining and warm, as well as a great cook. We’ve made several of the dishes we learned from her since returning to the states.

This was our second stay at Il Falconiere - we came back because of the amazing experience we had 2 years ago with the 5-day cooking course. This time we did the 3-day course and it was absolutely the highlight of our stay. Richard Titi is amazing and we highly recommend as many sessions with him as you can manage.... More
