Amazing location and staff

Posted Jun 6, 2014
Pros: The staff, the breakfast and the scenic grounds are all excellent.
Cons: As with most Italian hotels, a more keenly priced bar would be an improvement.
Location: It's near the lovely, relaxed hilltop town of Cortona. Don't miss Pienza either - another stunning hilltop village. A lake is also closeby.
If you want to stay in an authentic hotel that provides a genuine taste of Tuscan life then stay at Villa Balbelli. It is a charming building with lots of sympathetically restored features and an excellent pool with stunning views of the Tuscan countryside and the hilltop town of Cortona. The staff deserve a special mention - they are amongst the most friendly and welcoming staff I have come across anywhere in the world! All in all, a fabulous stay on a memorable holiday.

Like something out of a movie..

Posted Oct 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
OMG... If you died and woke up in "La Dolce Vita" you would be at this hotel sipping a drink called an "Americano" (Campari, Prosecco and soda) and listening to the church bells as the sun sets. The hotel and gardens are lovely. The desk clerk in the afternoon was the loveliest person. The pleasure to expense multiple was very high.

A great small hotel in the edge of Cortona

Posted Oct 6, 2013
My wife and I stayed almost a week and loved the hotel. It is like staying in a an old Tuscan villa except with all the modern conveniences. The hotel has an excellent restaurant. The staff is friendly and helpful. Conveniently located for visits into the old walled city and for day trips into the countryside. Staying here is a true taste of Tuscany.

Absolutely magical getaway

Posted Sep 19, 2013 on Hotels.com
From the moment my taxi pulled up in front of the Relais Villa Baldelli, I was absolutely enchanted. This hotel is a gem in the Tuscan countryside. My room was decorated in perfect antique Tuscan taste. I spent my mornings wandering through the vineyard and afternoons laying by the pool. Morning breakfast was plentiful and delicious and I enjoyed one excellent dinner and bottle of house red. When can I move in?

Excellent, friendly hotel

Posted Aug 17, 2013
Pros: Small and friendly, excellent position, lovely pool
Cons: Muzak when eating
Location: Great views of Cortona and easy access to other hill towns in Tuscany and Umbria
A small, high quality hotel in a good position for exploring this part of Tuscany. Our room was comfortable and slightly quirky (interesting pictures on the walls), the staff were friendly and helpful, the food was very good and the pool was excellent with superb views. The owner presented us with two bottles of wine as we left - a lovely touch. Negative points were minor: for our part we prefer silence to muzak; and the range of options on the dinner menu could have been wider, though I appreciate some careful balancing is required to control costs and quality. We would certainly recommend the hotel and will stay again if we come back to the area.

Mini Resort Hotel close to Cortona, Italy

Posted Jun 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
A car is necessary for the location, but this allows you to get away from the noise and congestion of the old cities. Villa Baldelli is at the edge of a vineyard, in quiet farmland. The swimming pool is great for cooling off, and the poolside bar service is convenient for happy hour. The option to dine in or on the outside patio is awesome, as the view of Cortona on the mountain is a great backdrop. Loved the generous breakfasts, good choices for dinner, reasonably priced wine. Staff were very attentive and helpful. We couldn't ask for more.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was a nice size. You might have directions available about the use of the shower. The location was good for travel through the hill towns.

Great Hotel for Visiting Tuscany

Posted May 15, 2013
This was a lovely hotel with extensive grounds and only ten minutes by car outside Cortona. Only disappointment was that the pool was not open and the grounds seemed a little unkept, we would assume this is because May has been an unusually wet month in Cortona and is fairly early in their season. We could not fault the service,staff and the very enjoyable buffet breakfast. We would say a car is necessary if you are staying here as the town is a few kilometres away.

Beautiful Hotel for a wonderful getaway

Posted Oct 26, 2012 on Hotels.com
We loved everything about Villa Baldelli! The rooms were perfect, the staff friendly and helpful and the grounds just breathtaking. The food was also wonderful. We stayed three nights and had a wonderful time. I loved the fact that the hotel is very old and has so much history and character. We were able to do day trips from there and its just a short drive into the town of Cortona. Or, you can relax in the garden area to read or chat. We would definitely go back to visit our friends at Villa Baldelli.
