This is by far the nicest place we stayed in Tuscany and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to use as a central point of stay and do day trips around Tuscany. We had a lovely room on the second floor and found it had everything we needed to complete our stay. The Internet did...

We stayed in the Gameskeeper Apartment for one week, September 21-28. Four women. It was our second week in Italy. The first week was spent touring Rome and Florence. The grounds of Il Melone are beautiful. The staff speak very good English and will do anything they can to help with places to visit, maps, etc. They even made phone...

We have stayed at Il Melone twice now. We would never miss it whilst in Tuscany. The staff team are excellent - helpful and friendly at all times. The restaurant veranda view is fantastic. Watch the Tuscany sunset while you dine - perfect.

Fantastic hotel with excellent self catering apartments. The only negative was the lack of a/c in our apartment. Fantastic value for money and would definitely go back. The pool was beautiful and exactly the right temperature. They throw a great wedding too!

Outside of Cortona, and technically walkable from the station (along a busy day-time road with minimal pavement...), Il Melone sits in considerable private grounds. You have a choice of either hotel rooms or 'apartments'. Rooms are rustic with a modern twist. Good size, immaculately clean, bar, safe...
