La Corte de Papi, Cortona, Italy
As so many have said, this is an exceptional gem in Tuscany. We came for a few days to relax after a long flight before a cruise and it was a highlight of our trip. The grounds are lovely and peaceful, with a stunning pool and beautiful gardens. Both David and his mother made us feel like old friends - we will miss them. They couldn't do enough for us. David was always available to help us with all our sightseeing plans, offering maps, directions, etc. He was extremely knowledgable about the history of the area and was never to busy to sit down with us to chat.
Rooms were large, very well appointed and extremely comfortable. The restaurant was outstanding, both for excellent buffet breakfasts and a wonderful dinner. We enjoyed eating outside in the beautiful gardens.
We hope to return one day.
