Heaven on earth! Beautiful property with the kindest, most hard-working staff we’ve ever experienced. Phenomenal food! David, the owner, is incredible! He is there sun-up to sun-down, not only making sure that all of his guests are taken care of to the most minute detail, but also working WITH his staff- taking food orders, serving meals and carrying luggage to rooms. The property, from guest rooms to the pool to restaurant seating, is immaculate.

We just completed an amazing five night stay at La Corte. I would first mention that Davide is a most gracious and accommodating host and the staff could not have been better. Our room was wonderfully spacious with a large jetted tub and steam shower. The grounds are lovely and well cared for and we welcomed a dip in the pool after a day of touring Cortona in the 90 degree heat. The hotel is extremely close to Cortona and Lago di Trasimeno and the roads were easily navigated for longer tours. We would not hesitate to book another stay at La Corte dei Papi!

Corte Dei Papi is an incredible place with an even better staff. We felt completely at home while staying there. It is an absolute must stay if you find yourself in Cortona. We bounced around several different hotels during our stay in Italy, and Corte Dei Papi was by FAR our favorite.

Just love everything about this hidden gem! The food and excellent wines, the tranquil surroundings, the highest rate of hospitality - with special mentioning of David the owner - the landscaping and the beautiful decor of all the rooms. If you are looking for a special place, look no further! Saskia & Wim, Amsterdam
