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. 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.

Beutifull hotel and lovely serounding. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a bit disappointed for the price we paid for night (350€) couldn't get an egg or vegetables without extra overcharged. Also the gluten free "breakfast" was bread and cake we could get from coop....

Great hotel, with spacious and comfortable rooms. Amazing view from the property and a well maintained and beautiful outdoors area. The spa was relaxing and the pools clean. Breakfast was great, and I really recommend eating lunch or dinner at the Michelin restaurant, it is really worth it! I also attended 2 cooking classes with the chefs, it was a great experience with good food! All staff was attentive and helpful. Highly recommended it!

Il Falconiere is a beautiful resort with perfect views of Cortona. The property is beautiful, quiet and well maintained. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and perfectly appointed. We had the pleasure of dining at the hotel. It was simply amazing. The food, the presentation and the service were unparalleled. The staff at Il Falconiere was among the best at any place that we have stayed. They are friendly and helpful and responsive to any need. We will definitely be back!

The restaurant is beautiful but the meals are very overpriced for what was delivered. Mediocre, bland food throughout all courses. Expected more attentive service as well. Experience was ruined by a rude patron having loud, inappropriate and aggressive conversation. Would have expected head server to intervene.

Response from Lina Bartelli, Marketing at Relais Il Falconiere & Spa
Responded yesterday
Dear Rrbosh thanks for your review that will be a point of view we will take care. We are sorry you didn't enjoy our gourmet experience taht is one of our must since many years, reconfirmed by 1 Michelin star since 2002. It was certainly a coincidence, and tastes in food are actually very different, it may happen that our cuisine is not appreciated by everyone, at the contrary we are very sorry that it has been disturbed by an excessive exuberance of our owner, we sincerely apologize for this. I hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you in a very next future and let you change your opinion have a lovely season ahead kindest regards Lina Bartelli

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Il Falconiere. The spa was nice. I took advantage of the sauna every day We had two cooking classes. The first was so wonderful as we were the only two students so we had a very personable time with Sylvia. The food we learned to prepare was our best meal of the trip. The second included 8 other students and was quite boisterous. So fun and we learned lots and again created a delicious meal. We also had dinner in the restaurant. Very nice. The breakfast every day included a sumptuous buffet and also a bread plate and fresh squeezed orange juice delivered to our table and an espresso drink made to order. Il Falconiere was a perfect home base to venture out and explore the surrounding towns.
