Stayed for my best friend'd wedding. The top service, with amazing accommodation either you are in the main building or the smaller villa, the rooms are just perfect.

This is a stunner of a hotel with a fabulous spa and heated outdoor pool. My room was spacious and glamorous with lovely rose scented toiletries. Breakfasts were a real treat with beautiful cheeses, breads, proper Italian sweet tomatoes and everything else you might need. They bring a fruit puree to your table - very indulgent The service is as...

We spent three delightful days at Villa Cora, traveling with our teenage daughter and her best friends' family as well. The decor, amenities and atmosphere were all beautiful.

Villa Cora is sheer perfection. Whilst it is undeniably grand there is no hint of stuffiness or snobbery. The staff are simply wonderful. They excel at exuding friendliness but with absolute integrity and professionalism. They picked up on the fact that it was my husband's birthday and surprised him at breakfast with cake and indoor firework! Stay as long as...

Been here for a weekend. Villa Cora is located right outside the crowd, but can be reached in a 30-minute walk or using the hotel free shuttle service. The villa was built during the 19th century, and the original style has been maintained: large common areas with particular decorations (frescoes and stuccoes) that can be booked for private events; rooms...

I spent 7 nights at the Villa Cora, Florence. The hotel’s location is perfect being sufficiently distant to escape the bustle of the city centre but close enough to be able to drop things off as necessary. The hotel provides a complimentary shuttle service to the centre of Florence but I equally enjoyed the walk into the city, which takes...

The building is fantastic. The staff is very nice and helpful. The room is fantastic. Really -fantastic. Separate room for the kids with two beds, master suite, two bathrooms.
