Il Falconiere

Località San Martino 370, 3 km (2 miles) north of Cortona, Cortona, Tuscany, 52044, Italy

Accommodation options here include rooms in an 18th-century villa, suites in the chiesetta (chapel, or little church), or for more seclusion, Le Vigne del Falco suites at the far end of the property. Husband-and-wife team Riccardo and Silvia Baracchi run the show, serving an almost exclusively American and British clientele. Their restaurant's inventive seasonal menu includes pici alla carbonara con lo zafferano di Centoia e pancetta croccante (homemade thick spaghetti with carbonara sauce), over which, if your heart desires, you can add shaved white truffles. Cooking classes and guided wine tastings are available, and a small shop sells estate-produced olive oil and wine.
