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. It enjoys enviable views of the Val di Chiana to the west, and Cortona, the ancient Etruscan hill town just three kilometers to the south. The Relais is ideally located for short trips to some of the most famous art cities of central Italy, such as Arezzo, Perugia, Siena, Florence and Assisi, all within in an hour’s drive away.

Dear Pinoneer, I really do not understand what you're talking about and the sense of you review! What does the "only wanted extra money doing local tour" Concierge mean? In every hotel the Concierge succeeds to the visitor of the tour to know the surroundings and all over the world these are extra services for a fee! What does "Lack of local wineries knowledge unless paid" mean? All the cellars around the world ask for payment for a tour and tasting, so where is the scandal? What does "transportation unavilable" mean? Our concierge can suggestyou, even during the booking, renting a car, Vespa, bicycles or simply a car with a private driver. Most of our guests choose one of these options, evidently you did not. There is no evidence that no guest left before the end of their stay, I repeat probably you wrong hotel. Our room cleaning service is done twice a day, and never, never again, this does not happen. It may happen that we find small harmless insects in the rooms, we are in the countryside and it can happen. The term "bugs" that you are using in a derogatory way probably refers to the "ladybugs" who had chosen a room in the villa .. problem solved moreover quickly. Ending with the Michelin Star: in 2018 we received it for the sixteenth consecutive time, evidently your taste does not match that of the inspectors who come to experience the quality of the restaurant at least twice a year as Mistery Guest. I simply believe that you have chosen the wrong destination for your needs. At last but not least, it is hard to walk around the city if you book a hotel in the countryside! Your sincerely Lina Bartelli
