You just cannot fault this hotel. The staff are superb and really make what is a tranquil and beautiful place even more special. The rooms are beautiful and spotless clean. The food is amazing and in particular, the breakfast is the best we've had anywhere. Such a nice touch to have a free shuttle bus into the city too. All...

The hotel is beautiful, my room had a lovely view of the city. I stayed here in mid July, it was HOT so the pool was really nice. Breakfast was great. I did ask the concierge to help me find a Catholic mass for Sunday morning and they did not have any information on a church nearby and I ended...

I booked Villa Cora for our August trip to Florence. The property is as beautiful as advertised, but he service fell well below par. For instance, we found a string of dental floss on the bedroom floor upon check-in. Disgusting. Another case in point? No one came to take our orders while we sat by the pool for 90 minutes,...

This property was absolutely perfect. Will come again to Florence just to stay here. I'm so thankful we came across this at the last minute, it was the accomodation highlight of our entire trip to Europe.

Beautiful location, just a 10 minute drive or a nice walk from the heart of Florence. This hotel has everything you need and if they don't will locate it for you. We were welcomed very graciously and our large room was just gorgeous. The food was outstanding. The complimentary car service was great. We probably used it at least twice...

Stayed at Villa Cora for four nights during July. This Villa is amazing. The service was top notch. We stayed in the duplex. It was perfect for myself, my husband and our two teenage girls. July is a hot month to visit Florence and having the beautiful pool on premises made for a great way to cool off after touring...

The best service i've EVER received from a hotel! I planned my wedding on the internet without ever setting a foot in Italy and in Villa Cora. I choose this location based on videos/photos of weddings I've seen, so I was willing to role the dice! The hotel was just BEAUTIFUL! I prefer boutique hotels that are private and feel...

located on the hills close to florence - just 10 minutes drive - this villa is a fantastic hotel with all comforts you might wish, including heated outside swimming pool and other facilities that encourage you to not live the hotel... it is a 5 stars luxury place so by definition is a bit expensive but a place to go...

Half an hour walk from centre this luxurious secluded hotel is perfect. Very helpful and friendly staff with exceptional welcome. Rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. Food is excellent but prices are high but it is a luxury 5 star hotel. My only complaint is the whole hotel is taken over for Sunday brunch and there is no where for...

What can I say you need to experience it ….. a full range of Italian delicatessen from cheeses to cold cuts eggs drinks cakes not the standard classical buffet breakfast and of the highest level you could imagine of.
