This hotel has provided the most wonderful hotel experience ever. The hotel, surrounding, furnishings take you back in time, But it is so very modern in offerings of food, rooms, amenities. The service and food were the best we've ever experienced.

A fabulous hotel, converted from an old monastery and hidden away in the hills of Fiesole, overlooking Florence. This gorgeous place has immediately entered my list of places to return to, as one night was definitely not enough.

This place has everything you would expect at a luxury hotel and more! The staff is incredibly attentive, friendly, and eager to make your stay wonderful and memorable. The hotel is perched on a hillside with stunning views of Florence from the courtyard and restaurant. While only a short trip from downtown Florence, it feels like a world away.

The attention to detail and impeccable service from the friendly staff at the Villa San Michele was the beginning of a memorable evening. Panoramic views of Florence below with the surrounding mountains was a beautiful backdrop while sipping on a refreshing aperitivo followed by a delicious dinner and dessert.

A short distance from the centre of Florence, Belmond Villa San Michele is housed in a 15th-century monastery with a façade designed by Michelangelo. It is surrounded by a large, wooded park and lush terraced gardens boasting magnificent views of the city and the Arno Valley below. The 45 bedrooms and suites are simple, peaceful and elegant while the Renaissance splendour of Florence is a mere 15 minutes away with the complimentary shuttle service, running every 20 minutes. La Loggia Restaurant provides a unique dining venue where guests can enjoy their lunch or dinner, based on Italian and Tuscan cuisine, while admiring the view over Florence. For a light lunch or a snack, the Pool Restaurant, situated directly by the hilltop panoramic swimming pool, is the ideal place. For food lovers, the renown Cooking School offers hands-on lessons to learn how to prepare the best Italian specialties. A Kids' Club and a dedicated Kids' Concierge are available to make the stay of younger guests truly unforgettable. The new Davanzati Room offers privacy and tranquillity thanks to its exclusive location, and a spacious terrace with a view for small banquets, cocktails and coffee breaks.
