The Relais & Chateaux Il Falconiere & Spa, is proud to be celebrating 30 years of heritage, passion, service, hospitality and memorable moments since first opening its doors in 1989. For the Baracchi family inhabiting this three hundred year old villa, welcoming guests with typical Tuscan warmth and sharing their passion for the region is a true vocation. In their cuisine, fresh products are drizzled with oil from the estate’s olive trees, and the wine comes from vines grown in line with biodynamic principles. Other regional products, such as the Chianina beef, are chosen with care. Developing local synergies is natural here, as is the concept of a circular economy: food waste is strictly monitored and also shared with the estate’s chickens!
