      Wine, cooking classes and excellent Service

      The property is amazing, with view of Cortona on the hillside and the Tuscan countryside down below. The cooking class with Sylvie was fantastic and recommended. I thought the price was a little high, but after the full experience with dinner, we felt it was a bargain. We would do it again.

    • 10.0.Exceptional

      This was one of the most beautiful properties we have stayed at and the service level was impeccable. I could not say more about the entire experience. The service was superior and the staff went over and beyond to ensure we were comfortable and also assisted in making changes to excursions when our timetables were tight. Riccarrdo and Sylvia Barracchi, property owners, top vinter and Michelin chef, respectively, made our stay extra special. We will definitely return and recommend this property without hesitation.

      My husband and I spent the second half of our honeymoon at Il Falconiere. When we arrived our jaws dropped at both the location, the gardens, and our room. The staff was always willing to help in any way possible and so friendly. We couldn't get over how gorgeous the views and amenities were in every way. We can't wait for our next trip back! So impressed.

      Rooms were very dark some of the lights didn’t work. The facility is worn down. They do not go the extra mile to make your stay memorable. This is not a five star property.

      Good hotel with some flaws

      Good hotel next to beautiful Cortona. The central AC was shut down so we weren’t able to sleep very well but they wouldn’t turn it on because it was October. The restaurant is really overpriced for the quality and portions of the food. Staff is friendly and helpful and room was nice (we got a suite). With so many options around I think I will try another property next time.
