“Excellent hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

We are just finishing a five night stay at this hotel and although slightly on the outskirts of Maranellonthis place is a little gem.

The staff seem to be all part of the same family and although English is a little broken it has given more reason for me to learn Italian.

Breakfast is served in a small room with a choice of two cereals, yoghurts, breads and cold meats and cheeses. If you don't want to eat inside you can go downstairs and eat outside.

The rooms (suites) are well appointed with comfortable beds.

Internet although free can be difficult to get in line if using an iPhone or iPad.

Overall we enjoyed our stay. Mucos gracis!

A traditional location with very friendly service, a good restaurant, good swimming pool, clean spacious tuscan style room. No complaints, home-made cakes for breakfast, own wines (not at same time) and location within 10 minutes drive of centre of Cortona or 40 minutes to Perugia. Price- quality a good match. Would recommend it.

Absolutely amazing. A cozy restaurant with an interesting menu. We had a full meal in this restaurant: starters, main ....wine...cheese .....everything was fantastic. And served with a smile.

Someone from the area recommended us this place. .... so .... another good sign I guess.

Fabulous experience and would do it again in a heartbeat. Richard guided us through some amazing recipes, all of which i have repeated since returning to Canada. The dinner that followed was wonderful as were all the selections of wine that they chose to accompany the meal.
I miss the all smells, tastes ... and hospitality. Was a fun night.

The B&B is country-style, but extremely well furnished. The ambiance is all you can ask to a luxury farmhouse. Rooms are clean and the swimming pool is very nice.
A special mention for the restaurant, where we had a great dinner and the quality of food is excellent. Consider that we live in Tuscany and we're quite hard to please with food!
Staff extremely friendly and helpful. The inn is slightly penalized by its position, right on the road, even if the road is not busy at all. But all other positive features fully balance this fact.

I live part time in the U.S. but have a vacation home in Northern Italy. For weekends I like to to explore Tuscany and it's vast wine resources. This hotel/borgo is a wonderful setting. It is close to all major wine estates, a short beautiful drive to every town you would want to visit. The staff are quite helpful and will assist with planning day trips. It is an ideal place to relax by the pool overlooking the hills of Tuscany and just sipping a glass of wine at the end of the day. Warning, try to arrive during the day, the estate, though huge, is not easy to find at night as the signage is minimal. Unlike many hotel restaurants, do not miss this one, it is wonderful. You do not need to leave the property for a wonderful dinner.

My Mother and I recently visited Cortona on a tour with Ambassadair. We did not stay at the hotel, but I will be back to do so. Our group of 15 had a cooking lesson with Chef Richard Titi and his assistant Sarafina at the IL Falcontere restaurant located in the hotel. I will say the experience was the highlight of our trip. We drank wine and made from scratch, mushroom and onion puff pastry, Pici with traditional duck sauce, veal medallions stuffed with black olives, home made pasta, and the most delicious Tiramisu that I have ever eaten. If you are ever in the Cortona area, you owe it to yourself to stay at the beautiful inn and learn to make a delicious Tuscan meal, all while enjoying the company of your friends.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Once upon a time there was a very old mill...Today it is a charming Locanda with a special typical Tuscan Restaurant, completely renovated by Riccardo and Silvia Baracchi, owners too of “Relais & Châteaux Il Falconiere”. A heaven of tranquillity and elegance, in the middle of the Cortona countryside, a land famous for its culture, cuisine, and great wines.Locanda del Molino with its romantic rooms, is located in Montanare, on the upper Esse valley, and just few kilometres away from the Etruscan town of Cortona. The environment that surrounds Locanda del Molino is very interesting both for culture and for landscapes.There are eight guestrooms overlooking the creek, where every guest will experience the relax of sleeping while lulled by the sound of the waterfalls.Each room has been individually decorated and fully furnished by Silvia: it will feature either four poster beds or upholstered frames, antique or country style furniture, yet each room shows its authenticity of the almost lost flavours so characteristic of the Cortona countryside.“The style of cuisine that I would like to find in a restaurant like at locanda is for me simple and genuine, but never ordinary. Our Locanda offers mainly traditional Cortona’s cuisine and a shot from the past with almost forgotten dishes in the “Daily menu”. Guests can share with us the pleasure of rediscovering our local cuisine matched with great wines.” ... more   less
