My husband and I stayed at Corte dei Papi for two nights in May 2013 and it was absolutely amazing. We were greeted by David Papi, whose family has owned this estate for centuries, and the grounds were gorgeous, and the rooms spacious and clean. We wished that we could've stayed longer. David was a wonderful host, very friendly and helpful. He worked tirelessly to make our experience special. We ate one night in the restaurant on the property and the food was delicious and the wine list was long and diverse. For sure order the pasta, and the chocolate dessert was to die for. The second night, we wanted casual so David suggested the local pizza restaurant which was a short taxi away. It was fabulous and full of local families enjoying a night out. Breakfast at Corte dei Papi consisted of fresh baked breads, yogurts, granola, cheeses, salamis, and fruit and of course lots and lots of cappuccino. The town of Cortona was a 5 minute car ride away and we loved walking the narrow cobble stone streets and ducking in and out of wine shops and cafes. Our bike ride from Corte dei Papi to Tuoro and back was challenging but gorgeous...I would do it again in a heartbeat. I can't wait to go back and visit David and stay in one of the new rooms...grazie mille David and staff for a wonderful beginning to our amazing biking and hiking trip through Tuscany!
