5-Star X-Factors

A wonderful Tuscan experience in a beautifully-restored and opulent villa hotel

Villa Cora

The beautiful, aristocratic Villa Cora is situated within a magical centuries-old park overlooking the Boboli Gardens, south of the historical centre of Florence.

This grand villa, resplendent in a pale pinky peach hue, was built in the mid-nineteenth century, commissioned by Baron Oppenhelm and represents a fabulous architectural testament to this period.

Villa Cora became an exclusive grand hotel in 1960 then underwent an extensive three-year restoration in 2010, becoming a Relais & Chateaux member on re-opening in 2013. This gorgeous villa hotel has earned a reputation as one of the most captivating luxury 5-star hotels in all of Florence but is not at all stuffy, welcoming families and discerning luxury explorers alike.

The hotel exudes warmth and enjoys magical gardens, a cossetting spa and formal and poolside restaurants, although we were disappointed by the cuisine during our last stay.
