Had dinner here while staying at another hotel. The Falconiere is a very nice resort, and the staff is very friendly, we were welcomed by the owner. The restaurant is the best we experienced during our Tuscany trip, and it was great to have some interesting fish/seafood suggestions after a week of meat. The food is presented in a creative...

The property is very nice and the views of the valley with the sun setting a dinner were beautiful. Breakfasts were very nice. We were a bit disappointed with our room given the price. The service was very good and everyone was very nice.

From the moment we arrived at the foot of the driveway we were in awe of the wonder that is Il Falconiere. The reception staff were hugely knowledgeable about the region and the restaurant staff were equally helpful and able to recommend fantastic combinations of food and wine. The rooms were romantic with a lovely view across the vineyards and...

We have recently stayed at 'Il Falconiere' for the third time. We were hosted in a beautiful junior suite elegantly furnished. Again we found that this family run hotel provides the unique atmosphere of being cared for in an old Tuscan mansion surrounded by nature, olive trees, pines and vineyards. Friendly and attentive service. The restaurant deserves another review.

We spent four nights on our second visit to this wonderful hotel. It has a unique feel to it in that it is a complex of buildings beautifully restored and in its own private walled setting. Our room was a very decent size (we were given a choice of a couple of rooms), everything was clean and well-taken cared of....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The typical Tuscan villa which dates back to the 17th century was the home of the famous poet Antonio Guadagnoli. Now completely restored and transformed into a countryside Relais, it is part of the prestigious chain Relais & Châteaux, which exuberates the art of hospitality.In the restaurant, in the kitchen, at the reception, dedicated to taking care of the needs of our guests ,we are proud to offer everyday our availability and our specialties, improving them continuously. The art of refining quality is achieved by caring about details that make a difference.An ideal setting for those who love the beauty of the countryside, the atmosphere of the Relais is quaint with characteristic old-fashioned Tuscan charm. The twenty-two rooms are elegantly furnished-each unique in color and décor and reflecting the classic, refined style of important Tuscan homes. A few rooms are in the antique villa, some attached to the villa’s chapel and others in the cottage. All share the view of the magical landscape of the Cortonese countryside and are fully furbished with every modern comfort.La THESAN ETRUSCAN SPA has the goal of reawakening all of your senses through the harmony of the environment and the flavours and tastes of Tuscany.The Etruscan Thesan Spa guides you to discover the true relaxation, with a unique and unrepeatable involving all five senses.

Exclusive for Officina Profumo Santa Maria Novella of Florence. Behind each of our actions is the desire to spark an unforgettable emotion: a recipe with delicate and persistent aromas, a special and rare decoration, the vistas leaving you breathless and astonished, the warm welcome that makes you feel as though you belong.. all of this will take you to the primordial feelings of pleasure. Staying with us will leave you with everlasting memories.The restaurant is on two floors with a glass and wrought-iron conservatory, overlooking the outside dining terrace with its ancient fishpond and rose-clad pergola.
