We stayed here for 4 nights on a romantic pre-Christmas break and could not have been more blown away by Villa Cora and the lovely staff who made our stay so much more special. They were helpful, willing and very able to give great restaurant recommendations. The hotel itself is picturesque and wonderfully decorated for Christmas. I cannot recommend this...

Three visits over the last 18 months and each has been fantastic. The hotel sits above the Pitti Palace and enjoys vistas of Firenze. Service is impeccable and the rooms are all fabulous - have tried three categories so far. The pool area is great when the weather is accommodating - only one of our trips was in the summer....

Villa Cora is a beautiful, luxurious hotel just outside the city center of Florence. The staff is extremely friendly and kind, never hesitating to go the extra mile to make their guests happy and comfortable. The hotel itself is situated in a beautiful part of the city that allows you to feel away from the city center yet with easy...
