We absolutely LOVED our stay here. The service is top-notch, and everyone we met went out of their way to welcome us. Our room was stunning, clean, spacious, and beautiful. The bathroom was quite large and had recently been updated. The pool is heated and quite beautiful! It was quite difficult to go tour things instead of hanging by the...

We stayed at Villa Cora at the end of our two week visit to Italy (second stay in Florence). As members of the Leading Hotels of the World, we were up graded to a deluxe room in the small building next to the main hotel. The room was lovely including beautifully painted ceiling and I know this sounds silly but...

great hotel with amazing common spaces!!! the bar and the restaurant like the common area close to the lobby are pieces of art. Rooms are nice, mine was very little with the bathroom a little bit stinky but maybe I've been unlucky. I think I will come back to Villa Cora to give them a 2nd chance. Overall, the hotel...

We’ve been to many of the world’s top hotels, but Villa Cora managed to excite us again. It is beautiful, service is impeccable, food is great, and the ambiance is elegant and relaxed. It is a resort of a sort, almost worth the travel irrespective of Florence. Beautiful poolside restaurant. It is located on a posh hillside outside the city...

Upon entering this hillside converted mansion, you are enveloped in a world of Old World service. Everything one could ask was met with "Yes We Can". There was even one night their shuttle was running late and they called in a Taxi which they paid for and we were right on time for our dinner reservation. This a place for...

It's ​very unlikely that I will ever forget my stay at Villa Cora, I've created my account in trip advisor for 2 reasons, one was a total disappointment I had to write about, the other was Villa Cora unforgettable experience and high quality it is by far on the top of any previous experience I had in the past.

Though we had a short stay at Villa Cora, we enjoyed it immensely. The hotel was beautiful, from the grounds to the rooms and public areas. It was in an excellent location. The staff consistently went above and beyond to make sure your every need and beyond was met.

A beautiful villa, set in a rose garden in the hills overlooking Florence. Villa Cora's signature pink car whisks you into one of the great art cities of the world, and back to the villa's luxurious rooms, lovely rose-scented soaps, splendid gardens, and fabulous views.

My husband and I stayed at Vill Cora for a week with our 2 year old daughter. It is hands down the best hotel we've ever stayed at anywhere in the world. The staff was super attentive and helpful without being overbearing. The facilities were gorgeous -- they retained the old world charm of an old Villa but with all...

A perfect location if you want somewhere to relax as well as doing a spot of sightseeing. The hotel itself is beautiful; we had a deluxe room in the main building (some of them are in the new annex so if this is important to you, check at the time of booking). The views over the city were particularly welcome...
