-Restaurant. If you are a foodie, you will feel as though you've died and gone to heaven. The chef prepares fresh Tuscan meals with top ingredients. It's reasonably priced for the quality but realize that the restaurant caters to higher end food and is priced accordingly. We regretted not eating all of our meals there. -Breakfast - this was by far our best breakfast spread of our Italy trip. Copious amounts of fresh pastries, cakes, freshly baked bread, cheeses, fruits, etc were given. Truly outstanding. -David, the host. He was so warm and personable and made our stay perfect. Ask for wine recommendations! -The room - our suite was very lovely. We stayed in the old stable and it was incredibly comfortable and very well appointed.
David and his staffs hospitality was exceptional. We were made to feel so welcome from the minute we arrived. The food is 5 star and David's recommendations and knowledge of the area made our 3 night stay the highlight of our 2 week vacation. Can't wait to return
The hotel owner was very charming and did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. Very welcoming feel to the place. Fabulous food at the restaurant. Beautiful setting and location. Good breakfast buffet.
The room was a bit dark.
David, the owner, and his staff couldn't do enough to help us and bent over backwards to make our stay special. We had a wonderful cookery course in the kitchen and absolutely delicious food for lunch and dinner. The hotel is very peaceful and near to lovely Cortona. We enjoyed the spa in the bedroom very much.
The décor is quite ornate - very smart and beautifully done but it does mean that when in the rooms you don't get to enjoy the beautiful views of the Tuscan landscape with the heavy drapes at the windows.
The place is wonderful the stuff was very good,breakfast was very good.d
The room was a little small for this price we understood their are better rooms but double the price
We booked a few days in Tuscany as it is usually guaranteed good weather. The hotel is perfect for relaxing by the pool in beautiful gardens with first class service. The area around the pool is plenty big enough for the number of guests so that you relly feel that you have your own space. The weather turned out to be unusually bad after a day so we upgraded to a Spa Suite. The brand new Spa suites are the ultimate in luxury with a large Jacuzzi and state of the art steam room within your own private suite all in set in beautiful historically restored cottages. The restaurant serves top cuisine with excellent service. The pre and post dinner drinks spot on. David is a fantastic host, always pleasant, helpful and with a smile on his face. He really helped us to plan our days - planning the visting of the local areas for wine tasting, recommended and made our restaurant reservations and took care of every detail. What was really pleasant was that he was always available (no idea when he sleeps) but never intrusive - a great skill for a host. I expect that this hotel hotel will always be looking for ways to improve (not that it needs to) and I expect that it will be a fantastic place to stay for years to come. We would definitely visit here again.
The ambience of the hotel, good facilities, good food. Swimming Pool area really quiet & Clean.
We loved everything. This stay was the highlight of our 10 day tour of Italy. Lovely grounds, wonderful staff, convenient location and the service was impeccable. Can't wait to return.
the service and the atmosphere was excellent
The overall setting together with the personal care and attention of all the staff.
Only that we could not stay longer!
One of the most enjoyable stays I have had in my travels. The most impressive part was the outstanding care that David Papi gives to each of his guests. He is charming, gracious, and immensely helpful in helping you plan your time in Tuscany. The property is lovely and the rooms are nicely appointed. We stayed in a lovely cottage, but there are also new luxury suites for an extra special stay. The food is outstanding. The breakfast (which is included) was an amazing spread of homemade breads, pastries, jams, meats, cheese, and fruit. We also dined there two of our three evenings. Attentive support staff. Great location for exploring this part of Italy. A car will give you flexibility, but David can arrange any transportation you might need if you prefer. We hope to return!
A bit challenging to find with GPS initially, but follow David's instructions and you will be fine.
Davide and his family and staff were EXCEPTIONAL, gracious hosts who went out of their way to ensure that we enjoyed a memorable stay at their beautiful property. We had a sumptuous meal,elegantly serviced in their romantic restaurant. We can't wait to return. Gale and Vince, Montreal, Canada
Everything was excellent!
Very nice quite place to spend few days in Toscana. Restaurant is fantastic.
The host and owner David was involved with everything and truly cared about your experience at his property and in Cortona. His tips were great (he is a local) and his chef and restaurant were amazing. One of the best in the area. We shall not only recommend his property but also try to return soon.
This is truly a little slice of heaven in Tuscany. You will find all the modern conveniences you need with a traditional touch that makes you feel like you are staying in a friend's home. Even in March, the property was lovely and the welcome warm and inviting. Both David and his Mom do everything they can to make you feel at home. The restaurant is outstanding with perfect service, food and wine. I only hope I can return soon and enjoy it all over again.
We had a fantastic stay in this excellent hotel which provides the ideal combination of comfort and tradition, warm welcome and perfect food!
One of the highlights of our trip was our stay here. David is the best host and truly made us feel like family as we stayed with him. The restaurant wasn't open due to the time of year, but the rooms were amazing and David gave us great recommendations for dinner. Also - he was genuine in his excited for our honeymoon and gave us prosecco to celebrate. What an amazing stay. We can't wait to return. Cortona was a great stop on our drive from Florence to Rome. We 100% recommend staying here and looking into cooking classes.
Nice place, quiet, nice garden and poll. Superb staff.
Winter fog but still we had a pleasant stay.
David is a kind person, helpful and polite. Your property is very well maintained, beautiful and cozy.
We had a bit of trouble to find the hotel...
Great place. Very warm welcoming by David. We ate dinner which was one of our best dinner ever. The place is beautiful. We reccomend the stay
The hotel was unbelievable and David, the proprietor, could not be more gracious and helpful!
