The Relais Il Falconiere and Spa is a charming house kept in the heart of the Tuscan countryside. The Baracchi family’s love for the land, rich in history and ancient traditions, is the foundation of the best expression of food and wine of Tuscany which inspired and guided this great dream of transforming the ancient Villa of the 17th century, once home to the famous poet Antonio Guadagnoli, into a jewel of hospitality. So begins the first chapter of the history of Il Falconiere in 1988 with the careful restoration of a self-sufficient farm at the foot hills of Cortona. They welcomed an elegant country hotel, built in full respect and complimenting the surrounding territory. Today, 25 years after its inauguration, Il Falconiere, along with a Michelin star restaurant, a wine resort and exclusive Spa is a small world of charm suspended in time. The Relais Il Falconiere and Spa is an oasis of peace and tranquility in which you can rediscover the pleasure of feeling at home and breathe in the essence of the most authentic Tuscany. The House transmits a vision of art and hospitality in perfect alignment, and compliments the prestigious Relais & Châteaux Association since 1997. Our mission finds its highest expression in the dining selection of the menu and cooking classes taught by Chef Silvia Baracchi herself. The fine art of Il Falconiere is the character of uniqueness here that is handed down from generation to generation. A unique combination in the heart of Tuscany is to enjoy precious moments for the soul surrounded by the sounds and fragrances of the territory of Cortona.
