Villa Cora

Villa Cora

Set within a rose-filled park just outside the city center, Villa Cora reifies 19th-century Firenze in all its grandiosity. Built by financier Baron Gustav Oppenheim, the handcrafted villa simply oozes opulence with its marbled statues, exquisite frescoes and rich fabrics in royal purple, power red and plenty of green. Each of the 44 rooms and suites is unique unto itself in size, shape and style. Lounge by Florence’s only outdoor heated pool, and linger in the subterranean spa with its hammam and tepidarium. Dining venues change with the seasons.

Hotel Tip

The Bellevue Roof Terrace is where you can enjoy a mesmerizing view of the city while tasting a glass of champagne in the lounge area during summer months.

Staff was very attentive, but the room was small, although the balcony was wonderful. Location is great. Their shuttle service into Florence was fabulous.

Villa Cora was like staying at a Palace in Versailles. The rooms were huge, the views to die for and the food was off the charts great. We will definitely be going back.

This was my third stay in this magnificent hotel. A quiet oasis in the midst of the chaos of Florence. My grandson proclaimed it the best hotel he has ever stayed in. Spoiled... just a little!
