Think of some of the best meals, the best wines, and the best hotels you have experienced. Chances are they came at the recommendation of a friend. Our favorite “hole-in-the-wall” restaurants, or that great Cab Sauv that flies under the radar, have been discovered because those whose opinions we value have given us the inside scoop as to what they think we’d enjoy. We are forever grateful for these friends because they have shown us rare gems that we may not have come across otherwise. Get ready, because this month we are about to suggest another jewel that we think you will absolutely love.
Our staff has spent the last month traveling around Florence, and absolutely loved their stay at Villa Cora. We believe this is the next must-see place you should put on your travel list.
Considered the most beautiful residence of the Tuscan capital, Villa Cora has hosted many guests of great importance (in addition to our staff, of course!) such as Princess Eugenia and Tchaikovsky. Its beautifully unique architectural flavor and design is something to marvel at and contains many pieces and touches that will leave you at a loss for words. Having just completed an extensive renovation in 2010, Villa Cora is nothing short of exquisite. Offering every type of room, Villa Cora is suited for a variety of travelers from newlyweds to family getaways. The rooms are so grandiose and magnificent, it is lucky the rest of the villa and nearby Florence has so much to offer or you may find yourself tempted to spend your holidays in your suite!
As you can imagine, the food and drink are nothing short of award-winning. Truly luxurious cuisine that incorporate fresh, local ingredients daily ensure that every meal you have is a memorable one. From pizza and champagne poolside during the summer months, to a truly luxurious meal in Il Pasha during the winter months, guests will find their pallets are satiated by the authentic Italian cuisine. The Cigar Room awaits you post-meal, where you can sit and digest in opulent style as you taste some of the finest spirits and smoke some of the world’s most valuable cigars. With so much to offer, it is no surprise Villa Cora attracts the type of guests who are used to the best- they offer it in spades.
Spend your days surrounded by beauty as you take in the majesty of the pristine pool and gardens on the property. With more than one hundred different types of roses in a variety of gorgeous colours, the beautiful park and gardens offer a stunning location to spend your afternoons. We can only imagine how lovely it would be to use this facility as a magical space to host your special event or ceremony. With so much to see on site, the possibilities as to what awaits you as you explore nearby Florence and Tuscany magnifies your stay at Villa Cora to a truly superb experience.
We loved our stay at Villa Cora and we think you will too! Let us help you to plan your truly opulent getaway and ensure you take in everything this truly fabulous location has to offer.
Our passion, partnerships and years of experience combine to make sure you have an unforgettable holiday.
