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...

From the minute we arrived, David, the owner and manager made us feel welcome. His hospitality extended beyond the basics as he enthusiastically organised trips and activities during our stay. We ate at a Michelin star restaurant during our stay but found the food when we returned home to our hotel was even better! After evenings of five star dining... More

This boutique hotel is more than charming... Large beautiful rooms, quiet location, lovely views, but most importantly out-of-this-world service! This was our oasis for four nights during a busy trip to Italy. We stayed in one of the spa rooms which made us never want to leave the room...good thing David had arranged a private tour of the area for... More

David and his staff made us feel like we were part of his Home here. Rarely when 'we' travel do we think to revisit a place being the world so vast... This place will be an exception for us. It is impossible that we would never go back. David has thoughtfully considered every part of your experience. If anyone is... More

Although we had to cut our stay short for personal reasons we will fondly remember our stay at La Corte Dei Papi. The hotel has been in the Papi family for multiple generations and now is run by David as a hotel. David is the best! He could not be more accommodating. He is truly a person who takes pride...
