David is an outstanding host. He made us feel truly welcome in his 'home'. The pride he has in this beautiful homestead, which has been in his family for years, exuded as he gave us a tour of the various rooms. We had a fabulous meal in the restaurant. The food is 5 star all the way and David offered... More

La Corte dei Papi was an absolutely amazing experience. My wife and I stayed there for four nights in September 2012 as part of lengthier Italy tour and we could not have been more impressed with the whole experience. First and foremost, the Owner/Manager David made you truly feel like an honored guest and that he was genuinely happy to... More

Returned from this magnificent charming hotel a short time ago and brought back with me many good receipes and wonderful memories. I cooked for 3 mornings with Giuseppe & Carla to prepare our meal for that evening! What fun-didn't know I could be such a good cook. Our Tuscan room was quiet, meticulous, spacious and just perfect!

My very first review on Trip Advisor goes to the extraordinary Relias La Corte dei Papi. Some travel stories are worth repeating: We booked the Relais the day before we showed up on a travel site I had never heard of as it didn't show availability on any other site and we were hoping to stay there on one of...

Our host, David, provided the most sincere and gracious welcome to Tuscany and to his family-owned and operated hotel. The three nights that my wife and I spent at La Corte dei Papi to begin a 9-day vacation in Italy, could not have been better. The property was located conveniently for all of our Tuscany excursions including Cortona, Montepulciano, Siena,... More

Traveling through Italy, Cortona was our second stop. We were meeting friends here and seven months earlier, with the help of Trip Advisor, we had chosen Relais La Corte dei Papi as our villa. Upon arrival, we were eloquently greeted by David Papi, the charming owner of the hotel, who made us feel right at home. Our room turned out... More
