My husband and I returned to Il Melone in Sep / Oct 13 for just over a week and had the most wonderful time again. Upon arrival we were met by Allesandro who we immediately recognised from our first stay and were taken to one of the ground floor rooms which had its own private terrace - perfect for some... More

The first stop of our Tuscany-Umbria tour in June 2012, our navigation had some troubles finding it, but it is definately worth looking for.. The location of the borgo is perfect, just a few kilometers away from Cortona (but you do need a car to get there) if you want to explore the town (one of my favorites) and have... More

We stayed in a tiny little hotel on a tiny little street in Florence so it was a treat to drive onto the grounds of this hotel. The gardens are extensive and beautiful. Our room was large and bright with a window which opened up onto a view of the terrace and the hills of Tuscany. This place was lovely.... More

This is by far the nicest place we stayed in Tuscany and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to use as a central point of stay and do day trips around Tuscany. We had a lovely room on the second floor and found it had everything we needed to complete our stay. The Internet did... More

We stayed in the Gameskeeper Apartment for one week, September 21-28. Four women. It was our second week in Italy. The first week was spent touring Rome and Florence. The grounds of Il Melone are beautiful. The staff speak very good English and will do anything they can to help with places to visit, maps, etc. They even made phone... More

This was our second stay, the first one was in an apartment and this year we stayed in the hotel in a superior double room. The hotel is in a stunning location and the rooms are spacious and fitted with air-condition. We got a lovely welcome from Carlo and Costanza and the rest of the staff and everyone is very... More

We have stayed at Il Melone twice now. We would never miss it whilst in Tuscany. The staff team are excellent - helpful and friendly at all times. The restaurant veranda view is fantastic. Watch the Tuscany sunset while you dine - perfect.

Just had our second stay at Borgo il Melone and it was fantastic. We stayed for 10 nights last year and came back this year to do the same again.
