Our Dream Wedding
A pearl in the heart of Tuscany. David and all his team are totally devoted to ensuring you have a wonderful, relaxing and memorable stay in this beautiful, family-run, boutique hotel. The attention to detail in the decor is only matched by the attention to detail in the service.
We visited Tuscany in August 2016 to find a venue for our wedding the following year. David’s beautiful hotel was the first place we visited and we fell in love with it straight away. We should have just put our feet up and relaxed by the pool after that, as none of the other venues could compare or ticked so many boxes.
Our only concern was whether the service, on the occasion of our wedding, would be as we hoped. No need to worry, every one of our guests had a fantastic time and we all reminisce with fondness on our dream wedding weekend at the Relais La Corte dei Papi.
There were three generations in our party and everyone’s needs were met. Nothing was too much trouble. The kids (young and old) had fun frolicking in the pool and beautiful gardens. The food and wine was superb and show cased the best of Italian cuisine and vineyards.
Every room is beautiful with a clever mix of rustic and modern conveniences, the bridal suite and deluxe, executive rooms are breathtaking! You won’t want to leave your suite as you enjoy the huge spa showers with music, aromatherapy steam treatments, mood enhancing lighting and beautiful jacuzzi baths, big enough for a family of four. The beds are divine and all unique with sumptuous soft linens and furnishings.
David is the most hard-working, dedicated hotel owner we have ever met and it is without any hesitation that we recommend highly that you treat yourself to a dream vacation at the Relais La Corte Dei Papi.
Thank you David for our dream wedding!
Wonderful corner of Tuscany
We were looking for a place to spend a week in full relaxation; we were pursuing the dream of breaking away from the frenzy and succeeding in stopping the time, setting every single moment of peace. All this and much more we found it in this wonderful corner of Tuscany, pampered by courtesy, professionalism and, precisely, the heart of people who live their work all over, giving the guests the feeling of being at home, with all the comforts you may wish for. For the first time professionalism, expertise, and customer satisfaction are leading to the tranquility of the location. Your heart will have to know it, giving you space, if you like, the great communication skills of David and your mom; tell the story of the relay, give a touch of poetry to the excellence! Thanks to all Paul,
