RELAIS LA CORTE DEI PAPI
RELAIS LA CORTE DEI PAPI rests in the heart of Tuscany’s rolling hills that border Umbria, within a few minutes from Cortona. This small town of ancient origins has preserved its appeal as an antique medieval village. It’s the ideal spot to enjoy a family vacation within a peaceful setting surrounded by nature and near small villages, “cities of art,” and breathtaking landscapes. Once a seventeenth-century historic dwelling and residence of the current owners, the Papi family, it has been skillfully restored using the existing antique materials or utilizing similar ones obtained locally. Today, Relais La Corte dei Papi is a magnificent infusion of superior elegance and charm, reflecting David Papi’s passion for providing top fine dining and hospitality experiences. The garden, with a swimming pool and gazebo, are gracefully encompassed by the relais, creating an exclusive setting of pure relaxation.
The hotel offers five different types of accommodations, from guestrooms to a spacious and exclusive suite with a private in-room spa. All are decorated with warm antique furnishings and modern comforts. David Papi appears to be in all places, all the time. He’s a Houdini in his own right, showing up at receptions to offer assistance with a day of tours and excursions, poolside to be sure you have sufficient towels or drinks, or even during dinner to pair the perfect wine with your selections. Restaurant La Corte dei Papi’s chefs will dazzle you as they prepare Tuscan cuisine with a contemporary touch – fresh pasta, bread, and desserts are all made from scratch. The silverware, the prized porcelain, and delicate Flanders linen unite with first class service to envelope you in a romantic and luxurious setting.
