It’s rare to find a luxury hotel that has always been owned by the same family, but the wonderful Relais La Corte Dei Papi, recently restored by mother and son Gabriella and David Papi, has been in the family for many generations. This continuity lends the property a special warmth and means that your hosts are especially adept at making their guests feel right at home.
A floral retreat
Close to Cortana, a particularly beautiful part of Tuscany, Relais La Corte Dei Papi is an imposing country residence built in traditional, honeyed Tuscan stone and surrounded by large gardens festooned with flora. Rooms in the Main House are generously proportioned, ornately decorated and furnished with beautiful antiques, giving the luxurious feel of a bygone era. Spa Suites are all about guests' wellbeing, and have a private spa accommodating two people, as well as a Turkish bath with four multi-sensory showers. Treat yourself to chromotherapy, music therapy and aromatherapy. Offering extra privacy, there are also two romantic deluxe cottages in the lovingly restored granary and stable.
Sights and senses
In the centre of the estate, the arched windows of the elegant mansion look out onto the glamorous swimming pool, surrounded by comfortable sun beds and private cabanas creating an idyllic setting in which to soak up the Tuscan sun. In the atmospheric surroundings of the terracotta, stone-walled restaurant, guests can enjoy a delicious range of artfully presented Tuscan specialities. In warmer weather, dining moves to the outside terraces, where soft lighting and the beauty of the gardens create a memorable ambiance.
Relais La Corte Dei Papi is very much a home from home. Guests are impressed by the high levels of personal service, the helpfulness of the staff and the beauty of this very special place. To book your stay here, get in touch with our expert team.

Find out what our clients have to say about their experiences
We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
