Corte Dei Papi is absolutely outstanding - the location and grounds, the accommodations, the breakfast, the fabulous restaurant and most importantly, David. David has taken his generations old family home & created his vision of Tuscan perfection. From the minute you arrive David is there with the warmest of welcomes, with a magnetic smile and hugs & kisses included. As others have commented in their glowing reviews, David is ever present. A true work-aholic, but in a masterful sense.
Traveling with friends, we stayed 4 nights in the 2 deluxe cottages which were comfortable & lovely. The breakfast was incredible. We dined in the restaurant 2 nights & the food was outstanding. David arranged a winery tour for us, at the height of the grape harvest season, and it was fantastic. All of the staff were lovely & clearly have David's stamp on the service they provided.
Of our 3 1/2 weeks in Italy, Cortona, Corte Dei Papi and David were the highlight of the trip. Cannot recommend David & his Tuscan creation enough. David, we miss you already.
