5

Set above Florence in the village of Fiesole, Belmond Villa San Michele is a rejuvenating retreat away from the city with easy access to everything the Tuscan capital has to offer. The hotel dates back to the 15th century and the facade was designed by Michelangelo himself. With all the amenities of a large hotel and the sensibility and service of a boutique hotel, Belmond Villa San Michele offers the best of both worlds.

Description, Services & Facilities

Belmond Villa San Michele's location and setting is utterly magical, set in the rolling hills that overlook Florence, with terraced gardens full of fragrant flowers and citrus trees once tended by the Franciscan monks who built the 15th century monastery that now houses this incredible hotel. With just 45 rooms this is a boutique-style hotel with impeccable service and attention to detail, yet it also has the kind of amenities and facilities you're likely to find at a much larger establishment. The hotel's swimming pool has stunning views as well as a pool bar and restaurant, while the Loggia Restaurant offers vistas that are only matched by the delectable food that is served up. There are massages available in the private garden gazebo and the hotel offers excellent cookery lessons at the Cooking School, teaching the art of Tuscan cuisine from perfect pasta to the ‘young chef’s academy’ for 6 – 14 years. If you want to explore beyond the hotel speak to the excellent concierge to arrange any number of out-of-the-ordinary excursions tours in and around Florence.
