Elegant nineteenth-century villa near the historic center of Florence

Villa Cora is located in a private park, overlooking the Boboli Gardens, a few minutes walk from the historic center of Florence. It is an enchanting building from the nineteenth century, a luxury hotel with 44 rooms and beautiful common areas where you can enjoy unforgettable experiences and feel like true Florentine aristocrats.

The structure consists of three ancient residences: the Main Residence, where there are the magnificent suites, the Villino Eugenia, which overlooks the outdoor swimming pool and Le Follie which guarantees total privacy. In each of the rooms, every detail has been designed to create a unique environment where prestige and elegance come together harmoniously.

The pride of Villa Cora are the wonderful suites. The Aurora Suite is unique thanks to the fabrics of the Antico Setificio Fiorentino. It offers panoramic views over Florence: you can admire artistic masterpieces such as Giotto’s Bell Tower and Brunelleschi’s Dome. The Akihito Suite is located on the main floor and occupies the entire facade with a view of the city and the garden. It boasts beautiful original frescoes by Pietrasanta and Samoggia, wooden floors and a majestic red velvet bed with seating area. The Eugenia Suite, inspired by the widow of Napoleon III who stayed there, is entirely dedicated to his great passion, roses, which are found numerous on the furnishings and walls.

The Le Bistrot Restaurant is located in the winter garden by the pool or in the splendid Moresca room. Here it is possible to savor the passion for simple cuisine: an approach that identifies true luxury with the selection of excellent raw materials and the research to bring to light the flavors of Italian tradition. The Executive Chef Alessandro Liberatore, Tuscan doc, enhances seasonal and mainly local products.

One of the most evocative rooms of Villa Cora is the Bené Spa, on the lower floor of the Villino Eugenia and connected to the main residence by an underground tunnel. Thanks to a highly trained staff and personalized treatments, the Spa offers its customers the extraordinary beneficial effects of its philosophy of seeking authentic beauty and total well-being.

A real gem is the heated outdoor swimming pool, open all year round, located in the park in the shade of majestic oaks. Villa Cora is the perfect place to spend a pleasant stay in the cradle of the Renaissance.
