We just returned home from our trip to Italy & Spain and without a doubt the highlight of our trip was our 8 night stay at La Corte Dei Papi. The hotel is only a few minutes away by car from the great hill town of Cortona and a perfect location to tour all of Tuscany. We easily made day trips to Siena, San Gimignano, Orvieto, Montepulciano and Pienza. We had a lovely 2 room deluxe suite that was very comfortable and the entire property is beautiful. As many have stated in other reviews, what makes La Corte Dei Papi so special is David and his mother Gabriella. They are the nicest people you could ever meet. They did everything possible to make our stay absolutely perfect. From setting up a tour and wine tasting, to suggesting places to visit, to getting us special things we needed, and most importantly making us feel so welcome that we felt like we were visiting family or friends…simply put, they are wonderful people who we can happily call friends now. In addition to the hotel, the restaurant is fantastic. They have a very intimate dinning room that serves both a wonderful spread of food for breakfast and as a romantic spot for dinner. David and his staff, especially JR, made our dinners very special. We ate there for dinner 3 times and the food is wonderful…fabulous dishes that are simply delicious…..I highly recommend the filet with peppercorn ice cream! Also try the deserts which are quite unique and unbelievably good. Some of the best dinning we have ever had. David and Gabriella, thank you again for all of your hospitality. We will definitely return as we love Tuscany and we can't imagine staying any place else. Jeff & Christie
