Villa Cora, an aristocratic residence built in 1868 and owned by the Fratini family, stands in century-old grounds overlooking the garden of Boboli, on the hills bordering the historical centre of Florence. The Villa is located in a residential area, 10 minutes from the city centre by a free shuttle service that runs to the city's hotspots. The centre is also a 20-minute walk away. Ample parking for guests and free bike rental. The inn has 46 exclusive rooms and suites, carefully maintained in every detail. The Italian garden surrounding the Villa includes a heated pool open all year round. To enjoy a wonderful view while sipping a delicious cocktail, simply climb up to the superb panoramic terrace on the fifth floor. The menu of the restaurant run by chef Alessandro Liberatore is the result of his continuous research based exclusively on seasonal produce, mostly from Tuscany. The "Bene" spa includes a tepidarium with relaxation area, a palestra, sauna and steam room.
