We arrived at the hotel and walked directly into our cooking class (offered at an additional price-make reservations!). In minutes the Chef, the Owner (Silvia) and her mother were teaching us the fine points of making a great Tuscan meal. The del Molino Hotel was quiet, clean, and genuine Italian country with a gently babbling brook outside our window (it... More

We were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to have a cooking class, which was the most fun I have ever had, and a two night stay at Locanda del Molino. Cortona was the first stop on our ten day trip to Italy and it was everything I had hoped for and more. Beautiful, peaceful room with fresh Tuscan air... More

We are just finishing a five night stay at this hotel and although slightly on the outskirts of Maranellonthis place is a little gem. The staff seem to be all part of the same family and although English is a little broken it has given more reason for me to learn Italian. Breakfast is served in a small room with... More

A traditional location with very friendly service, a good restaurant, good swimming pool, clean spacious tuscan style room. No complaints, home-made cakes for breakfast, own wines (not at same time) and location within 10 minutes drive of centre of Cortona or 40 minutes to Perugia. Price- quality a good match. Would recommend it.

Absolutely amazing. A cozy restaurant with an interesting menu. We had a full meal in this restaurant: starters, main ....wine...cheese .....everything was fantastic. And served with a smile. Someone from the area recommended us this place. .... so .... another good sign I guess.

Fabulous experience and would do it again in a heartbeat. Richard guided us through some amazing recipes, all of which i have repeated since returning to Canada. The dinner that followed was wonderful as were all the selections of wine that they chose to accompany the meal. I miss the all smells, tastes ... and hospitality. Was a fun night.

The B&B is country-style, but extremely well furnished. The ambiance is all you can ask to a luxury farmhouse. Rooms are clean and the swimming pool is very nice. A special mention for the restaurant, where we had a great dinner and the quality of food is excellent. Consider that we live in Tuscany and we're quite hard to please... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Once upon a time there was a very old mill...Today it is a charming Locanda with a special typical Tuscan Restaurant, completely renovated by Riccardo and Silvia Baracchi, owners too of “Relais & Châteaux Il Falconiere”. A heaven of tranquillity and elegance, in the middle of the Cortona countryside, a land famous for its culture, cuisine, and great wines.Locanda del Molino with its romantic rooms, is located in Montanare, on the upper Esse valley, and just few kilometres away from the Etruscan town of Cortona. The environment that surrounds Locanda del Molino is very interesting both for culture and for landscapes.There are eight guestrooms overlooking the creek, where every guest will experience the relax of sleeping while lulled by the sound of the waterfalls.Each room has been individually decorated and fully furnished by Silvia: it will feature either four poster beds or upholstered frames, antique or country style furniture, yet each room shows its authenticity of the almost lost flavours so characteristic of the Cortona countryside.“The style of cuisine that I would like to find in a restaurant like at locanda is for me simple and genuine, but never ordinary. Our Locanda offers mainly traditional Cortona’s cuisine and a shot from the past with almost forgotten dishes in the “Daily menu”. Guests can share with us the pleasure of rediscovering our local cuisine matched with great wines.” ... more   less
