Spent 4 nights at David's la Corte dei Papi. Loved every minute of it. Great rooms, nice swimmingpool, super service and fantastic food. In addition to this the hotels owner David Papi is just outstanding. Whatever you need he will do his best to help you out. We did rent the whole hotel from friday to sunday and every one... More

First of all, any one with a negative review of Corte dei Papi in my opinion is probably an all around negative person all the time anywhere they go. Misery loves company. This hotel is over the top!!!! David, my husband and I both agree that your attention to every last detail is exceptionally on point. Your passion for people,... More

We were so excited to stay here after all the 5 star reviews. The exterior of the place is absolutely picture perfect and we were greeted warmly by both David and his mother on arrival. Unfortunately, it quickly became clear that the photos of the 'Deluxe' double rooms are very misleading. Our room in the main house was extremely small... More

We were staying in another beautiful property in Cortona and decided to have dinner at this place - 12 of us! Although the property is beautiful, I can't say the same thing with the food.. Came my entrée and with it came? a strand of hair! I told the waiter and with no apology, took my plate and gave me... More

From the minute we walked into the reception we were overwhelmed with the standard of service. David, the owner, was extremely gracious and walked us to our room talking us through the myriad of features of the huge spa and shower in our bathroom.The exceptional rooms are in gorgeous stone buildings overlooking the breathtaking Tuscan countryside. The medieval walled town... More

We stayed at this fantastic hotel for four nights last week, following a recommendation from a friend. We wanted a relaxing, comfortable break but also wanted to enjoy some good quality food and wine in beautiful Tuscany- we got both, with fantastic service from David and his staff. The hotel and grounds are beautiful, our room was lovely with a... More

My wife and I stayed at this very nice contemporary villa whilst on a cycling holiday in Tuscany and Umbria. The room and service were both excellent. The food was good but not quite fine dining. We would definitely return.

My wife and I recently returned from a one week stay at the Relais La Corte dei Papi. The setting is behind a stone wall along the main road in the village of Pergo which is itself just down the hill from Cortona. (Note that its not really within walking distance of Cortona - probably a ten minute drive up... More

We visited this wonderful villa in 2009 and ensured it was on our itinerary again this year as we returned to Italy.The villa is privately owned and David is always present; to greet you upon arrival to waving good bye as you depart. We had our same accommodations which are the smallest of the rooms. We had requested them upon... More

Truly a Tuscan paradise. We have so enjoyed our 3 nights here, and my 11 year old son, who is oblivious to most all hotel accommodations, even said how much he'd like to stay longer. As everyone has already said, David is a wonderful host -- so charming, helpful and patient, and while he works tirelessly for his guests, I... More
