We stayed in Relais La Corte dei Papi In July for a wedding and the place was absolutely amazing. It was very luxurious and David and everyone else who worked there were always at hand to make sure you were having a good stay. The rooms were very clean and were well air-conditioned which was brilliant in the middle of... More

My family stayed here in July for our son's wedding. It was a lovely time for everyone. The rooms are comfortable and we found the staff helpful and charming. Nothing was too much trouble for David and his team who went out of their way to make our stay truly memorable. The pool and gardens are very pleasant providing a... More

We have spent a small part of our honeymoon at the Corte dei Papi and honestly this was not a good idea. We should have spent all of our time there. It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to - and I have travelled a lot. The location is a little bit off the main... More

Charm, relaxation, personal attention, small and intimate 17th century manor house with elegant and charismatic owner/manager David - travel does NOT get any better than this! Just minutes away from the center of Cortona, Tuscany region, lush grounds and excellent pool offer fun time spent in town and afternoons spent by the pool. This is truly an experience for the...

My husband and I stayed here for a few days during our honeymoon and it was fantastic! The grounds are beautiful and very relaxing. The staff is very friendly and on top of everything. We had a great time and were really able to relax here. David is great and also recommended a fabulous wine tour of tuscany with Marianna... More

We recently ate here and would highly recommend it. Not for a typical daily meal, though, but more for a special occasion. The service, in particular, was first rate.

Dinner last night at La Corte dei Papi was lovely. First, the location and building are special - located a few minutes outside Cortona (very easy to get to), the property is tucked away from the main road and is a beautifully restored property. The restaurant features intimate seating, under large canopies, which makes the evening particularly different than the... More

My husband and I stayed at this very picturesque villa for a long weekend. The setting was incredible and the staff could not have been more helpful. We travelled with our 6 month old baby. The staff went above and beyond to help us - sterilising bottles, assisting with meal times, medical needs and even walking our baby around the... More

Having recently returned from our fourth visit to the Relais Corte dei Papi in Cortona, the time has come to celebrate the pure joy of this stunning property and surrounds. The Relais is perfectly suited to lovers of Italian culture and each suite is decorated in original Italian style, though with a contemporary feel. The restaurant features exquisite white linen...

We have eaten dinner twice at this fabulous restaurant nestled in a quiet, wooded area close to Cortona. The ambiance is exquisite, with only a dozen or so candle-lit tables surrounding the pool area of this cozy relais. The menu changes with the season, and the chef displays both artistry and culinary skill. The wine list is varied and shows... More
