We stayed here in August 2015 as part of a tour around Tuscany and Umbria and it was absolutely fabulous. David is very friendly and attentive and the property is beautiful. It has been in his family for many generations and it is clear how much David cares about the property and making sure all his guests have the best... More

We stayed here as part of our 2 weeks in Tuscany for our 20th anniversary. The pool and grounds are immaculate. The only sound is that of birds enjoying the garden. We were graciously given a complimentary upgrade. The second story suite included a patio that was at least 15' by 20'. The proprietor, David, is delightful--genuinely interested in satisfying...

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights for our honeymoon and we had such an amazing time! This villa has so much to offer- beautiful grounds, relaxing pool, professional staff, great location, clean rooms, DELICIOUS food, and the one the only David. David, the owner, was absolutely incredible. He took time to tell us about the villa's family... More

Fabulous food and surroundings, the owner David, and his staff are fantastic and nothing is a problem to them. The rooms are great and the hotel location perfect to tour the region from. This is a place I would intend to revisit and at the very least have another wonderful meal in. We cant say enough about David, he is... More

My husband and I spent two nights here while on our honeymoon and it was well worth it. We rented a car and drove from Rome, which was extremely stressful, but arriving at the hotel and being greeted by an amazing view and David, the owner, who made things all better. He truly has a passion for his hotel and... More

David has his hotel/villa running like a well oiled machine.This place by itself deserves a five star rating. The food is incredible (get the filet), the rooms are incredible, the service is incredible, the building is incredible and the location is incredible. But the real advantage of this establishment is David, I cannot stress enough the great service David provides... More

Felt like staying at an upscale bed and breakfast. David, the owner, takes a lot of pride since it has a lot of history behind it. His family converted their farmhouse into a hotel. We stayed in our own separate villa like room with our own gate entrance and private front patio for drinking coffee and wine in the afternoon.... More

Stayed two nights the end of May 2015...This is a beautiful property and easy to drive to... (not on a mountain top) close to Cortona and other Tuscan villages.The rooms are elegant and sophisticated. The setting is lovely. And make sure you enjoy dinner in the fabulous, romantic, intimate restaurant! The Italian rib eye for two was better than any... More

David, his mother and the entire staff made our stay in the Tuscany region of Italy fantastic. The beautiful historic family property, the world class dining, beautiful bedrooms and suites, the attentive staff and the pool area and grounds made this place special. David and his team are excellent hosts in every way imaginable. hard to beat this place anywhere.

La Corte Dei Papi deserves every five star review it has received. My husband and I would give it ten if we could. As many others have said, the property is stunning, the restaurant is outstanding, and our room was beyond charming … but the icing on the cake was the “over the top” attention given by the owners (David...
