Beautiful grounds and location. The hotel's concierge, Alessandro, was extremely helpful and went out of his way to be accommodating . The location was great for day trips . The only drawback was not having much of a selection for dinner and one night having only the hotel restaurant . Service was extremely slow and the menu limited and food... More

Borgo il melone is a nice place just outside of Cortona. Our room was spacious and nicely decorated. We have got nothing bad to say about this place but also nothing particularly good to point out. I guess during summer time it is a different experience as the facilities can be used like their pool etc. We had dinner at... More

This hotel is NOT in Cortona. It has a nice view of Cortona, but is in the next town of Comucia in the township of Cortona and is a 15 minute or so drive up to the town. The hotel is very nice with park-like grounds and a great pool area. Cortona and the area around it are awesome by... More

I spent a week with my family (five people in total) and we were very disappointed specially with the facilities. We've chosen the Casa Del Frantoio because it could accommodate comfortably all of us. Actually, it's a very spacious house, but the furniture is old, the kitchen is not complete and it's dark. We were travelling during the winter and... More

We chose this inn based on reviews on TripAdvisor. The inn is just beautiful, the property gorgeous and a great swimming pool which we were able to enjoy even though it was October! Our room was spacious and very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent with a good variety of offerings. The inn is located in the valley below the mountain... More

We stayed here in September, and after reading some of the reviews we were a bit apprehensive. The peole were extremely helpful with any questions we asked. The pool was fantastic and very clean.

We had one night in a hotel room and wished we were staying longer. The room was very comfortable, clean and well equipped. Staff were fantastic and helpful.

A fantastic place. We booked an apartment for 4 people. It is clean and spacious, with a kitchen and two sitting rooms. It is perfect for us. We drove to a Coop supermarket nearby for food shopping and cooked in the kitchen for dinner. There is also a large garden and green land with various friut trees. The grape tasted... More
