The Good: The grounds are amazing. From olive and fruit trees to a wonderful pool with views of Cortona, the grounds cannot be beat. The views from our apartment windows were great. Out one side we could see Cortona up the hill. Out the other side we overlooked several old Tuscan farm buildings. The in-between: The apartment was spacious and... More

The location is very central for daytrips to Cortona, Assisi, and Montepulciano. We had a small room but very clean. The grounds and pool are just so relaxing. Staff is very helpful and speak excellent English.

We visited here for the second consecutive year and it was just as nice as last year. The grounds are beautiful, the hotel quaint and the breakfast was delicious. But what made the experience was the staff. Gloria, Alessandro and Francesco were at the reception desk answering our every question with a smile and friendly greeting. The kitchen help were... More

This hotel is hard to find and just use a GPS as it is WELL WORTH IT! The rooms look out on green trees with a golden Tuscan light bathing the landscape. This hotel is on a beautiful and large old estate with many buildings that are historic yet off the beaten tourist path, Seems like only Italian locals know... More

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
