My husband & I recently stayed at La Corte dei Papi and had the absolute best stay. We have traveled many places and David, the owner, by far has made our stay the most memorable. He greeted us in the driveway and carried our luggage, checked us in & showed us our room (and another that was available as an upgrade - we'll take that!). Rooms are beautiful and spacious. David again greeted us for dinner and shared his knowledge of the amazing local Tuscan wines. Giuseppe, the chef, makes amazing local cuisines. We even took a cooking class with Giuseppe & Carla which was a lot of fun. Need a few items of laundry done? No problem, the maid even offered to take it to her house if the washer & dryer was bring used for in house items. I have never stayed at a place where the owner took such pride in his family house turned to business and made YOU feel like the most special guest he has ever had. We had dinner once off property (there is a little pizzeria down the street) and David was at the front desk (a few bottle of booze behind the desk) when we got back and offered us a glass of Grappa which he in turn enjoyed with us! How cool. David also set up several wine tours for us as day trips. He has a friend, Dejan, who has a nice van who can take you on the wine tours or anywhere else you want to go. Dejan even took us to his favorite gelato shop.
If you are looking for a place in Tuscany - STAY HERE...you won't regret it. We will DEFINATELY be back next time we are in the area.
