“Lovely luxury inn”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

A family estate that has been remodeled into a lovely inn with exquisite grounds, beautiful rooms (although the furniture choices, in my opinion, could have been aesthetically better) and incredibly hosted by the gracious owners.

An excellent choice for exploring Tuscany. Note that it is outside the actually town and requires transportation or a rather long uphill walk to get to "town."

Room Tip: Traveling as a group of five, I am familiar with 3 rooms, all of which were equally comfortable.

We stayed at the Relais for 4 nights and were very pleased . Davide and his staff make their guests feel very welcome and wanted. There is always a smiling face to greet you and help you if help is needed. Also, the cooking class given by the talented chef Giseppe is lots of fun but also a real learning experience. Definitely try this class if you can.
We had a lovely and relaxing stay at the Relais . Would certainly return again. One comment ,though. Try to eat breakfast outside because the Dining room is a bit dark.

We were at the Relais for 4 nights and could have definitely stayed longer. The hotel, the surroundings, the wonderful staff make it a real pleasant and relaxed stay. Do not miss to have dinner at the Relais: The food is excellent, we enjoyed every bite of it! The staff is very, very friendly and helps you with every request that you might have. If you are in the region, you should definitely stop by.

We were there just for one night but it was great. With a beautiful garden, clean bathroom and a great staff. We felt like home. Pay attencion if you chose the direction from tripadvisor because they made a little mistake. The location is easier than that.

We stayed here for the final and largest leg of our Honeymoon, and we were not disappointed. David was more helpful than we ever could have asked for, and his local knowledge and recommendations were brilliant. Always greeting us with a smile, he made the experience very positive and memorable. We are already thinking when we can go back for our anniversary.

Relais La Corte dei Papi is one of the most fabulous places I have stayed in all my travels. How many places does one go to where the owner greets you upon arrival? Not many, however, David greeted us with a big happy smile and made us feel very welcomed. His place was emaculate with the finest wines and the food was amazing! His staff was very courteous and always had smiles and were always very polite and accommodating. Our room was beautiful with a full two person jacuzzi tub and a steam shower that was just heaven to use!! Everyday we saw David, he not only made sure we were enjoying our stay with him, but that we were enjoying our vacation as well. He planned a day of wine tours which were so much fun and educational. He knew where the best wine shops were in town and restaurants as well. I would highly recommend anyone traveling to Tuscany that they should definately go to Cortona and experience this wonderful venue as we have. We will definately return without a doubt!

Room Tip: All the rooms, which we were fortunate to see are all amazing!

We stopped by just to have dinner, which was fantastic but there is one guy that makes that place happen and that's David. I have never met anyone in the service industry who delivers like this man--a true professional. He will insure your stay at his hotel creates memories.
