“Simply Amazing!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2011

Simply Amazing! 

My wife Kelly & I cannot stop singing our praises about Relais La Corte Dei Papi, it was the best part of our Italy trip & probably the best place we have ever stayed in our entire lives! The beautiful Villa that has been in the owner David's family since the late 1700's (now with only 8 rooms, it is very intimate) is now our home away from home to stay at; from the exquisite food from his ristorante & the impeccable and amazing service from David, his Mother & staff to the relaxing & quite tranquil sounds of the Tuscan countryside has left a huge impression on us and is how every person should feel when traveling to another country. We spent 7 nights - 8 days total there & enjoyed hanging out by the sunny pool doing nothing but relaxing for 4 of those days, it finally felt like a real holiday for a change. I would highly recommend this place to everyone I know & if you want to get away from it all & relax, or are thinking of having a destination wedding in Italy, this must be the place for you to stay at & use!! Much love & future success to David & his remarkable place. Xo

Yours Very Truly,

Daniel T. Bochlas &
Dr. Kelly Geritano-Bochlas

My husband and I have just spent a few days here and it has been absolutely wonderful.Everything about this small boutique hotel is perfection-the situation,the gardens, the decor of the rooms and the service are all fautless.The food deserves a Michelin star rating and to dine under the beautiful candle lit white gazebos alongside the pool could not be more romantic.
This is the best hotel we have stayed in on our holiday travels through Europe and we would hope to return. Not to be missed if you are in Tuscany!!

Corte dei Papi is not only a hotel with great service, it's like a home where you feel very welcome, and Davide and his mother Gabriella with staff showed us wonderful hospitality. It's all in the details and Davide runs the hotel with great passion. Excellent food, beautiful interiors and exteriors, peaceful atmosphere, great for relaxing and recharging batteries. We loved the restaurant evenings at the beautiful terrace, enjoying the marvelous wine (from the enormous book of wines) and the delicious cheese from the region, hanging by ourselves at the pool area (there are only 8 rooms available at the hotel so the number of guests are few) or just sitting in the jacuzzi drinking bellinis in our lovely little cottage!

Davide helped us arrange a visit to the wine yard Avignonese, a trip we really would recommend to take, especially for the incredible lunch with wine tasting. Do it!

All in all, we really loved the genuine feeling of Corte dei Papi, and must come back soon again!

Where to begin! We stayed here for 3 nights in July as our wedding venue. On arrival we were met by the owner David who was so welcoming. He showed us to our rooms and then as the restaurant is closed on a Monday he offered to make us some lunch and if we wanted dinner later on – this was perfect after a few days travelling. We met with our wedding planner Federica (The Italian Wedding Event) on the first day to go through everything with her so that she and David could make the day perfect for us. Not seeing the Relais before we were not disappointed, the rooms were Italian and rustic (not business conference style!) Our room had a double jacuzzi, steam room and shower and a huge bed. The grounds were beautifully kept and our wedding was held outdoors in the garden. The pool area had plenty of room and we all had sunbeds. Breakfast served on the patio was lovely – cheeses, meats, bread, cake, cereal and fresh juices and coffee. Lunch was served on a different patio and the tables were laid out beautiful and the service was excellent. The food was exactly what it said on the menu and was a variety of salads, pastas meats etc. The food on the wedding day was spectacular. There was a cocktail hour where little jars of gazpacho were on offer amongst lots more little nibbles and the wedding meal and cake was gorgeous and every one of our guests loved it! This was truly a beautiful place to get married and we thank Federica and David for making it so perfect for us. David truly is a wonderful man who couldn’t do enough for you. He had so much energy and was always smiling! Thank you so much for making our day so perfect for us and our guests and we wish you all the best in the future, I’m sure that we will return!

We spent 5 nights at Corte dei Papi, and it was the best five days in our lives. The hotel and the garden was so amaizing, and when you enter the hotel you forget all your problems and you feel calm. As I know in the main buliding there are 6 accomodation, and there are 2 cotteges next to the main building. We were in a cottage, and it was a great accomodation. It has a beautiful room with a double bad and beautiful equipments, and a nice bathroom, with a big hydromassage bath. And Cottages have private entrance and a piece of private garden with a big table and chairs to spent the evening after the dinner under the toscany sky and having a great wiew to the bilding and the amaizing garden. Truly nobody can tell with words how great place Corte dei Papi is. David - the owner - was very kind, and he arranged for us a wine tour to Montepulciano, with a travel guide. We were in 4 wine cellar, It was unforgotable. A lot of hotel take amazing photos on their website and when you arrive you are disappointed, but not in this case. Corte dei Papi is so much more beautiful than on the photos it is. I suggest everybody to visit this havenly place. Thank you everything for David and Marianna!
