My husband and I decided to spend Easter in Florence - which is a great experience in itself - at the highly recommended Villa Cora. Gorgeous estates and plush greenery line the winding street on the drive up and we definitely felt we were in the Beverly Hills of Italy as we approached this majestic property. Reception greeted us promptly... More

We loved this hideaway in the hills over Florence and would recommend it whole heartedly. We arrived at this magnificent Grand Villa Cora for five wonderful days & nights of a historical tour of Tuscany. Our group was full of sophisticated world travelers. Our Junior suite was superbly outfitted. Bedsheets, pillows and bath amenities were excellent. We dined only three... More

We stayed at the villa Cora for 4 nights and from the moment we walked through the door the service was inpeccable. Tempted not to submit a review in order to keep this dream villa all to myself - it was truly an amazing experience and made our holiday very special.

Some hotels become legendary over time, building on fearless and matchless reputations. Others gain their status largely from the prestige attached to their name. Then there are hotels that stand so far apart from anything in either of these categories that they become unclassifiable in their brilliance and for breaking the mould. Villa Cora is that very hotel. I think... More

Everything you should expect from a luxury hotel, from the personal welcome and outstanding service (shuttle service into the city on demand) to spectacular decor and amenities. The restaurant is also excellent, with a great selection of regional wines by the glass. The view from the rooftop (or from the balcony of our room) is amazing, looking out over the... More

Lovely rooms, grounds and pool area. Wonderful location, a bit of a walk into the city but you are able to take taxis and the hotel has a shuttle bus. Food was excellent. The staff were amazing and could not have been more helpful. I would definitely recommend staying here for a luxurious retreat from the heat and bustle of... More

We took our two young daughters to Florence for a full two weeks, basing ourselves at this marvelous hotel, choosing Villa Cora primarily due to its great TA ratings. The ratings seemed almost too good to be true, but we can assure you, this hotel is indeed completely outstanding. It is a beautiful property, quiet, yet just a 10 minute... More

We stayed here just over a week ago as a family of 5 (three teenage boys) on a 4 night stay in Florence.
