Relais La Corte dei Papi
Ranked #4 of 24 Hotels in Cortona
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 July 2013

My husband and I closed the biking portion of our vacation through Tuscany and Umbria in the beauty of Relais La Corte Dei Papi. From the moment we arrived we felt like we had stepped in to heaven. The smells of the trees welcomed us before the official welcome by David, the owner, and his lovely mother. We were shown to our newly renovated room featuring its own Starpool shower and jacuzzi - the perfect way to relax our aching muscles from the four days of biking. The inn provided the freshest of breakfasts each morning and the dinner we shared with our group was delicious and fun. A must stay!!

We stayed at Corte dei Papi a couple of weeks ago while on a bike trip with Backroads. The experience was absolutely amazing and second to none! My girlfriend and I had just gotten engaged 2 days before, and we got to celebrate in style with David at his beautiful family home. We will never forget our experience and a level of service that we just simply had not experienced before. Words cannot describe how outstanding this place is!!!

David, his mother & their staff, and the entire property were the best. Rooms, food and service couldn't have been better. David goes out of his way to make all guests feel at home & couldn't be more helpful. The exquisitely appointed rooms, steam showers, jacuzzi's were icing on the cake. We'll be back to enjoy the best Italy has to offer in Tuscany.

The reason for this is the highest level of service provided by the owner and manager David and his team. We were staying in La Corte dei Papi for 3 days and those days will stay in our memories for a lifetime. From the first minutes of our stay, we were surrounded by the maximum of attention. Even when we got back to the hotel at 4 am we were met by David who had been waiting for us! All the questions and requests were solved instantly and as conveniently for us as it was possible, every minute of my stay with family we felt as privileged guests. Our room was nice and clean. The food in the restaurant was amazing! Thank you, David, for a wonderful holiday! We hope that we can return to the finest hotel soon.

This is an oasis of calm, beauty, delicious food and charming service just a few minutes outside of Cortona. David Papi and his mother have little by little transformed a family property into a high-end destination that could easily accommodate couples, newly-weds, families seeking a restful spot to recuperate from sightseeing in the Tuscany countryside. Papi's personal touches are everywhere...in the decor, the landscaping and the personal attention that he gives to his clients. I highly recommend this charming hotel.

The owner, David, and his staff are wonderful. Helpful to the max.
On arrival David greeted us and helped us to our rooms. I was, at first, a little disappointed in how dark our room was. However, it did make for a good night's sleep. The bathroom was also dark & that could be brightened up. We had a nice sitting area, comfortable bed, and our own patio.
We took a cooking class with Giuseppe & Carla, along with interpreter Gemma, that was GREAT. I will definitely make pick pasta at home - never would have guessed I'd do that! We loved eating our "lesson" for lunch.
David also arranged a cheese & wine tour with Dejan that was outstanding. We loved seeing Pienza, Montepulciani, etc., and had a great lunch included.
We enjoyed cooling off in the pool after hot days exploring Tuscany.

Room Tip: I'd ask for one of the newer rooms that might be brighter since I like light!

wonderful experience. Recommend it highly. Greeted warmly and graciously by David, the proprietor, at this family owned and run Relais. By the time we departed, he had made us feel like family. Relais is absolutely charming -- our room lovely, grounds beautiful and the new spa rooms luxurious. And the restaurant… it's a very elegant and intimate setting and the food really outstanding. Service also impeccable. This was a highlight of trip for us and other tables echoed our sentiment. Relais is well situated for easy treks to Assisi and Arezzo, and of course Cortona, all of which we visited during our 3 days there. Lunched out and dined in at the Relais. So happy we did. Would love to stay there again.
