This is a great place to stay for families. Not too many people (not possible because it is not a huge resort) and great accommodations with plenty of room and great air conditioning! The service of the rooms is great and there is an average restaurant on site but a very cool town nearby that has some great restaurants and... More

I don't know where to start! Driving up to the hotel from the road is breathtaking, such beautiful buildings, flowers, grounds and scents. Warm welcome at reception, we were shown to our room and given breakfast info. Room was lovely, tiled floors, big beams on ceiling, comfy bed. There is air con but it wasn't really doing the job, however... More

What a huge disappointment! Restaurant was the worst ever, unfriendly staff + bad quality of the food. Almost never open. We were literally chased away when we wanted to drink a coffee! Baby bed was dirty and broken + unfresh sheets. Bed and sheets were changed after making complaint. Door bathroom was broken (see pic). Bathroom in general was total... More

Stunning grounds, comfortable accommodations supported with high quality amenities, extensive breakfast and beautiful swimming facilities. Vincenzo and staff did not leave our experience to only a brief welcome orientation but carefully managed our stay with each interaction in a professional, warm and genuine manner. True hospitality - a rare find in today's low touch service environments. Will recommend to friends... More

As a respite from touring the major cities in Italy, we chose the Tuscan countryside of Cortona. The Borgo Il Melone offered beautiful grounds, and rooms in a refurbished villa setting. In addition, the hotel did have a laundry room with washer & dryer available at no charge. Since we arrived by private transfer and did not have a car,... More

A very pleasant stay made more so by Vincenzo and his colleagues. (A problem with the bathroom was speedily rectified. Nice room, good restaurant and lovely park.

We only stayed one night as we were on our way to Venice from Rome. How we regretted that! The whole setting is beautiful with Old Cortona up on the hill in the background. The buildings, restaurant, cantina, and rooms are beautiful in that they were classy and rustic at the same time. The room was very comfortable. The food... More
