Far enough from Florence centre to feel remote, though close enough not to miss out; the stately home hotel of Il Salviatino is well-placed luxury and character all in one.
It is impossible to escape the splendour of the Il Salviatino hotel and frankly, why would you want to? With perfectly poised rose gardens overlooking Florence’s Duomo and city centre, marble pillars and grand suites of antique furniture, frescoed ceilings and picturesque views, there is no denying this particular property’s regal standards or atmospheric credentials.
The long list of guestroom and suite options share the same high standards and aristocratic feel, with the main differences between them being the extra large floor plans, living spaces and view. Some of the suites in particular feel extremely grand, with high ceilings, antique leather sofas, a fireplace and even an in-room library, only adding to that special feeling. Modern touches come in the form of rain showers, Nespresso coffee machines and Wi-Fi, though in truth the history emanating from each space and natural comfort created by the finery of finish is far more important than any possible mod-cons.
