Beautiful dining room, excellent service and the best food we had in Cortona. Highly recommend. Away from the town of Cortona so a welcome respite from all the climbing. Food was exceptional - my meal of stuffed zucchini blossoms followed by a pasta with truffles, vin santo and Contucci for dessert was sublime. Their own wines were excellent, and prices... More

This is a lovely place to both stay and to eat in. This time we stayed in Room 6, a well decorated clean and tidy room with a comfortable bed, air con and TV with BBC news. The Shower was superb in the well designed en suite. We were at The Locanda for a large party, the staff managed the... More

Locanda del Molino is outside of Cortona in the beautiful country-side. We loved the quiet and the ability to get away from the crowds while still being just a few minutes from Cortona and fairly short car trips from many of the Tuscan wineries in that area. Restaurant is very good. The staff was very attentive and the breakfast was... More

Fabulous dinner in a romantic setting. Service was excellent, food was fresh and the family takes pride in their restaurant. I left my cell phone behind and they called Borgo di Vagli where we were staying and returned the phone to us! This was a fabulous place and we will return as we visit Cortona often.

This is a great little place just outside Cortona. The staff are so welcoming and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The traditional food is fabulous and being part of the Baracchi portfolio, the wine is stunning. The rooms were charming and the pool was lovely, we will return, so that's a good sign.

We had dinner there at the recommendation of our hotel and it was lovely. The setting is perfect, the wine was divine and the service excellent. It is large for the small places in the area, but feels like you are in someone's home. There is also an outside seating area which was beautiful.

We recently dinned at locanda del molino. Our first impression was Yes! We came away feeling no. The restaurant was beautifully decorated, the atmosphere was rustic and yet sophisticated. The service was't bad on the whole. The head waiter was aloof and unhelpful while the assistants were pleasant and prompt. The wine blew us away, the Pinot was top notch... More

We arrived at the hotel and walked directly into our cooking class (offered at an additional price-make reservations!). In minutes the Chef, the Owner (Silvia) and her mother were teaching us the fine points of making a great Tuscan meal. The del Molino Hotel was quiet, clean, and genuine Italian country with a gently babbling brook outside our window (it... More

We were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to have a cooking class, which was the most fun I have ever had, and a two night stay at Locanda del Molino. Cortona was the first stop on our ten day trip to Italy and it was everything I had hoped for and more. Beautiful, peaceful room with fresh Tuscan air... More

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... More

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
