Couldn't have chosen a better place to stay in Tuscany. Beautiful facility. Great breakfast (extra charge--worth it!). Very clean, nice pool, nice restaurant, beatiful grounds. Extra helpful staff. Laundry facilities available. For some unknown reason, our GPS could not locate the place.

Room Tip: The apartment we stayed in had two separate bedrooms and two bathrooms (located in the hallway, clos...

We had a magical stay at Il Melone at the end of August. The hotel is 5-10 minutes down the hill from the center of Cortona.

The hotel & grounds are beautiful and well-maintained. Rarely saw grounds maintenance people, but the grounds were immaculate and the grass trimmed yet soft and velvety. Was able to relax and unwind, and forget about the world for a while.

The room was very comfortable, and the AC worked very well.

The hotel is in a wonderful location - in the foothills of Cortona with easy access to the main roads. Camucia train station is nearby, but not easy walking-distance.

The daily breakfasts were excellent; a good variety and quantity of food available to guests.

Internet connection was supruisingly slow/weak in my room, wife strong at the pool area.

The hotel restaurant is very good but a little more expensive than other similar-calibre restaurants in Camucia or Cortona.

The pool is a wonderful place to unwind after a day of exploring Tuscany & Umbria.

The staff at the hotel is helpful & friendly and some spoke excellent English.
