My wife and I visited Villa Cora for two evenings during our recent trip to Italy. This hotel exceeded all expectations, with a great level of attention to detail. The decor was stunning, and the staff was extremely polite and helpful. The breakfast was of an extremely high quality, standing out from other Italian hotels. We also had an amazing...

This place is exceptional! Their attention to detail blew my mind. We loved how every staff treated us like special guests. My kid sometimes asks me if we can live in a home like Villa Cora. We wish :) Who knows he might want to marry someone in this hotel when he grows up.

this is a great place to enjoy few days in Florence. located on the hills surrounding Florence, reachable in few minutes by car, it offers whatever you need to have a top class holiday. Rooms are old style but faboulous and service is a top opne. Only downside is that it is a bit expensive but still deserve it!

A fabulous hotel. Superb views of the city in a renovated palace. Breakfast was a huge plus. Hated to leave in the morning. Service was excellent and very professional. Rooms beautiful. Hotel is about a 25 minute walk from the center, across the Ponte Vecchio and in part through a park. For me, it was well worth the walk back...

We have stayed in most of the 5 Star hotels in Florence and many are very good. Villa Cora is exceptional. Beautiful villa hotel overlooking the city. Close enough to walk into the city, but if the walk doesn't appeal there is a courtesy shuttle. Nice pool area and Spa completes the perfect Tuscan Gem. We are planning a return...

The property and the staff at Villa Cora are exceptional, we travel a lot and we both agree that this is as close to perfection as we have experienced.Some travellers may have an issue with the location but we prefer to be out of the hustle and bustle and a 20 min walk into town is perfect.
