Although our stay was brief, the hotel was amazing. David and his staff were so accommodating. We loved the character and charm of the property. The restaurant and food selections were fabulous. Our only,regret was that we could not stay longer. It was a wonderful way to spend our 35th wedding anniversary celebrating with good,friends in such a special place.... More

Beautiful place to stay for a true Tuscan experience. The owner David is wonderful and a great resource for planning your day in Tuscany. The resort has been in David's family for centuries. David himself grew up in this villa before turning it into a resort. The rooms have great character and charm. Everything is quality. The food is amazing.... More

I stayed at Relais La Corte dei Papi in September 2014 during a bike ride through Tuscany. I have travelled to many places and have stayed in some amazing hotels, but Relais La Corte dei Papi is one of the best. The rooms are comfortable and luxurious. The grounds are landscaped with a beautiful pool area and a few quaint... More

Not only is David, the owner, wonderful but all of the staff was fantastic. The grounds are gorgeous and the room is over the top! You have you own spa within the room (make sure you ask that your room has that) The tub and shower are to die for with music that is piped into the shower and it... More

My friend and I spent 4 days at this beautiful place and both of us agree it was the best of our 25 days in Italy! David and his beautiful mom Gabriella were so welcoming and delightful. We were treated like family and felt so at home. The villa was so lovely and David and his staff could not have... More

David is the perfect host. As soon as we arrived, he made us feel extremely welcome and was always on hand if we had any questions. We had gone to Italy for my birthday and David was very helpful to my boyfriend when he was trying to arrange surprise vineyard tours! The room was wonderful - one of the best... More

From the moment we got to La Corte Dei Papi we felt like royalty. David could not have been more accommodating. He was always there when you needed him. At breakfast we had so many things to choose from. From the freshly squeezed blood orange juice to the selection of cheeses, I had a hard time deciding each morning what... More

I am forever grateful to David, his hospitality and his gorgeous property. He helped to make our stop in Cortona one in which I will always treasure. My husband and I both feel that we have left behind a new friend in Italy. If he ever makes it to Florida, our home is open! Don't miss out on a dinner... More

My husband and I found Relais La Corte dei Papi on Tripadvisor and are we thankful we did!

We had made reservations at 5 star hotels throughout Central and Northern Italy, from Rome to the... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights on our Honeymoon, and could not have had a better experience. David Papi was a lovely host, obliging and helpful in every way, and the Relais was like a dream. We loved the restaurant and the pool, and David was full of excellent recommendations, like the local boutique winery he arranged for... More
