The grand Villa Cora Hotel is a historic hotel in Tuscany that’s been meticulously restored to the minutest detail with great pains taken to conserve the original architectural style.
In all, the hotel offers 46 rooms and suites between the main villa and two adjacent buildings.
Main Building at Villa Cora
The main villa features 30 suites and rooms situated on 4 floors. Each floor enjoys its own style with the first floor known as the “noble floor” and includes elements like frescoes.
The second floor is devoted to the ex-empress Eugenia (widow of Napoleon III) and includes her favorite flower – roses. The third floor is dedicated to the Orient, in unadulterated Moorish spirit. And the fourth floor is a gem, the junior suite 401 which is inspired by the 50s of America.
In all, the Hotel offers classic and deluxe, family, duplex junior suite and nine exclusive suites.
Other than a king size or twin beds, the one thing all rooms have in common is that every detail has been crafted to offer guests unique surroundings where luxury and elegance combine harmoniously with high quality comfort and modern touches including Internet.
The small guesthouse, Villino Eugenia overlooks the Boboli Gardens. This guest house offers 14 different rooms, each decorated and furnished in bourgeois styles of the late 19th century complete with exotic ceilings depicting rare and exotic subjects.
The small La Follie guesthouse found at the edge of the park that encompasses Villa Cora, offers a unique charm and extra measure of discretion and privacy with only 2 rooms.
The spa “Bene” is situated on the lower floor inside the Villino Eugenia. It is equipped with a small gym, warm Roman bath, sauna, Turkish bath and three rooms. Guests can take advantage of treatments including Asian and European massages as well as beauty treatments.
Aside from the hotel itself, the Italian park grounds and large outdoor pool create an idyllic setting perfect for relaxing. Go for a swim in the heated pool or take a leisurely walk through the garden surrounded by hundreds of types and colors of roses painting a heavenly pastoral setting you won’t forget.m
