If you want luxury come to the Villa Cora. We had a standard room in an annexe which was not large but nicely furnished. The hotel itself is beautiful decorated and furnished. You are overwhelmed with staff from the moment of arrival (if you like to open doors yourself you won't be happy!). You get given a mobile phone so... More

We visited Villa Cora for just a short, three nights with our three teenage daughters. It was definitely the highlight of our weeklong sprint through Florence and Venice. We loved the quiet, peaceful setting, nestled away from the touristy chaos of the city center. We loved the intimate, boutique vibe of the hotel, the pool and the grounds. The Family... More

One of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Fantastic well-cared for old property -more like palace and from the minute you walk in you are treated like royalty. The staff are very pleasant and courteous. Can't speak highly enough of this place. I will let the pictures do the talking.

Villa Cora is a very refined hotel when you enjoy the city of Florence while relaxing when you get back to the hotel at the pool, spa, or room. It is a luxurious hotel which has a fine service. It is 5-7 min far from the heart of Florence but there is a shuttle that facilitate things. The breakfast is... More

We stayed for 3 nights with our 2 children on a tour of Italy. Upon arrival, we just stopped with our mouths open at the splendor. Such a special place, we felt like we were in a dream.

There is only one word to describe Villa Cora in Florence..."Stunning". Our room was delightful as was the entire property. The staff could not be more helpful if they tried. We ate an evening meal in the hotel by the pool on our first night. The food is to die for and the restaurant staff excellent... The hotel has a... More

We stayed at Villa Cora during summer, and it was a fantastic choice. The hotel is beautiful, rooms are very nice (we stayed in a Deluxe room), and the garden and pool area are charming and inviting. The staff makes the hotel even better. Everyone was so nice and helpful, and service is impeccable. It is not in the city... More

The title of this review says it all....pure excellence. The concierge is fantastic and the room service never disappoints. The hotel offers plush gardens and a spa. The infinity pool is relaxing, and employees go out of their way to ensure your day is fantastic. Special thanks to Francesca, for making sure our day at the pool was extremely pleasurable.... More

My wife and I travelled through Italy for 16 days, and Villa Cora was our second stop. We knew it was a special place the moment we drove through the gates, with the Villa perched overlooking the city and a magnificent grounds to greet us. I'm not sure what was better - the outside or the immaculately restored inside of... More
