Fodor's Expert Review Il Falconiere

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

Accommodation options at this sumptuous property 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. Cooking classes and guided wine tastings are available, and a small shop sells estate-produced olive oil and wine.
