We spent two nights at Il Falconiere as part of our time in Tuscany. The hotel is unique and ideally located for exploring all the countryside villages in Tuscany, As a compliment to our honeymoon we had an upgrade on our room and a bottle of champagne made on the estate. The complex was an old villa and now everything...

After travelling for 3 weeks all around Italy, we planned 4 nights at Il Falconiere. This was the most expensive of any hotel we stayed at - even higher than Rome. We specifically travelled in November to avoid the crowds (and air conditioning issues). Overall, the locaion & views are beautiful, the staff was nice, and the room was always...

We had the great pleasure of dining at Il Falconiere on our recent trip to Italy and can only say it was awesome! The ambience, service and food all exceeded our expectations. The menu was original and included vegetarian choices with desserts that were decadent and delicious. Wine from the adjoining vineyard complimented the meal perfectly. We visited twice, once...

We only stayed here two nights and I regret not trying to convince my wife that we should have stayed longer. That's okay, we are coming back.

We spent two nights at the Il Falconiere and enjoyed ourselves a great deal. The restaurant is great although expensive. We took a tour of the winery with Ricardo and were completely entertained! He is fabulous, funny and really hospitable. His wine is some of the best in Italy and we shipped several cases home. The pools were very cold...

We stayed a very lovely five nights at the Il Falconiere. I was a little nervous after reading some of the reviews here but the hotel was absolutely lovely. The rooms was large and very clean. The only negative points were that the bed was two singles together to make a king which meant there was a seam in the...

We traveled in Italy for nearly 3 weeks and this, the most expensive of the hotels we stayed at (more than double the price of the next most expensive hotel) was by far the worst and extremely disappointing.

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. A wellness Trail where the two basic elements - water and heat - are skilfully combined with lights, sounds and colours therapeutic to optimize the relaxation. 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. The cooking, which is personally supervised by Silvia, with the help of the head Chef Richard Titi, has succeeded in creating new temptations, using original and traditional recipes to create a marvelous cuisineaccompanied by great wines. “Il Falconiere” is situated in a quiet, elevated, rural location amid vineyards and olive groves.
