Atmospheric Tuscan villa in a delightfully tranquil setting
Within an hour’s drive of Siena, Florence and Assisi, 15 minutes from Lake Trasimeno, and 2.5km from historic Cortona, the splendid 17th century Tuscan villa Il Falconiere is located in a stunning setting surrounded by landscaped gardens, vineyards and olive groves. The villa has been carefully and sympathetically restored and is now a delightful Relais & Chateaux property offering fantastic countryside views together with a warm welcome by the Baracchi family who pride themselves on their exquisite attention to detail. Boasting frescoed walls and original antiques, and reflecting traditional rural Italian charm, the elegantly furnished rooms and suites are set throughout the estate, and the one-star Michelin restaurant in the ancient lemon house offers exquisite Tuscan cuisine plus an extensive wine list which includes Il Falconiere’s own Baracchi label. In addition to numerous day trips out to explore the cities and sites of Tuscany, there’s a delightful outdoor pool, an indulgent spa, and vineyard tours, wine tastings and Tuscan cookery classes available. Car hire included.
