Relais Il Falconiere & Spa in Cortona, Tuscany, Italy
To arrive at Relais Il Falconaire is to be welcomed home. Riccardo and Silvia Baracchi’s Old World villa, once the home of poet Antonio Guadagnoli, sits on 30 acres of Tuscan countryside filled with olive groves and vineyards, and indeed, a holiday here is an introduction to the Baracchis’ way of life. Join Riccardo on an intimate tour of his wine cellar, or take to the fields with the family to explore the art of falconry. Rooms are opulently restored, with antiques, frescoed walls and wrought iron beds. Between the wafting aromas from the rose garden and the delicacies served at a Michelin-starred restaurant, staying at Il Falconiere a sensory delight.
In a glass-enclosed hillside terrace, savor a breakfast of fresh breads, homemade jam and country cheese served on fine china. Wander through the manicured grounds. At the spa, indulge in an exclusive BiOlv’Experience that infuses warm olive oil, Tuscan lavender and sea salts in a soothing massage ritual. Relish a six-course menu that features roasted rabbit in a light elderberry sauce.

Reviews for Relais Il Falconiere & Spa
Everything about our stay was wonderful - the room, spa, wine, and breakfast. We would gladly return and stay here for a week. Can't recommend it enough. BUT This restaurant SHOULD NOT HAVE a Michelin star and we've eaten at multiple M-star restaurants. Our pasta arrived cold, the steak tartar was under seasoned and the service was less than stellar (other than the bread steward). The only thing that lived up to the Michelin Star was the stuffed zuchinni blossoms and sauce. We tried to get the waiter and the maitre d's attention, but they did not want to come over. It was like they knew the food was bad/that we were going to complain. Upon check out from the hotel, we complained and they seemed grateful but only because they could finally share feedback with the restaurant. NEVER AGAIN - I'd rather drive into Cortona or to Perugia for dinner.
The hotel is set on a hillside overlooking Tuscany in all its glory and action tothe beautiful hilltop town of Cortona. The rooms are in various buildings and our room 38 was some walk up a hill and steps so beware. But the room was lovely and the views fantastic. Service is excellent and the restaurant was perfect. 1 Michelin star well deserved. We had supper there for 3 nights. Not disappointed once. The cooking school and Spa look good but had no time to enjoy. Definitely worth going out of your way for if you want peace!!

If you want to spend a time in a dream villa in tuscany with perfect wine, outstanding and personal attention to every detail ... go there. If you wake up in the morning smell lavendle, thyme and rosmary bushes - get out and see this incredible light and then go for a perfect breakfast.... you are at this wonderful place. The hostess takes every thing very personal and makes very sure you feel like a prince in tuscany from the cooking classes (just perfect blend between familiar and professional) to the wines and the food. Thank you for your hospitality

Stayed 6 nights. Beautiful property. Cooking class with Silvia was a real treat. Restaurant is in a glamorous setting, the wine list contains many wines from the property which are of high quality. One guest has a wheat allergy and the restaurant was very accommodating. Outstanding breakfast buffet every morning. A bit of a hike to the room, but an amazing view on the way overlooking Cortona which is memorable. Did multiple wine tastings and a white truffle hunt in the area arranged by Alberto Martini "wine tours Cortona" and the property which were informative and great fun. Flew into Rome and the property arranged private transportation ( about a 2 hour drive) which was hassle free. A very fun and relaxing vacation!

What a beautiful hotel, just outside the Tuscan town of Cortona. Fine dining, spa, their own vineyards, and a beautiful location. The owners are present and they and the staff are extremely helpful. We loved this place.
