Florence, Belmond Villa San Michele

Florence, Italy



Give yourself into a perfect Renaissance atmosphere and allow yourself to experience the true meaning of being reborn again. The 15th-century building and the façade attributed to Michelangelo of the Belmond Villa San Michele will bring artistic inspiration for all your senses.



Surrounded by its own enchanting beauty of the gardens and woodland, on the Fiesole hills, Belmond Villa San Michele is a 20-minute drive from Florence Airport and a one hour drive from Pisa International Airport. This boutique hotel and a former monastery, representing an oasis of the ultimately intriguing Renaissance man, is above the vibrating city of Florence. A complimentary shuttle service from the hotel to Piazza della Repubblica square in the city center is provided and it takes only 15 minutes. If you do prefer the active side of vacation, you can always indulge yourself with a game of golf on the 18-hole Ugolino Golf Course in the Chianti Valley, 45 minutes from the hotel.


Step inside and experience the ethereal beauty of Italy's culture as the floral arrangements in large ceramic vases line the floors of corridors with arched ceilings. The 45 guestrooms, including 25 junior suites and suites are peaceful and elegantly decorated, most framing the views which enjoy mesmerizing Italian garden, the private woodland, and hills of Fiesole. The Junior Suites have a private garden and terrace, while, the 'Orangerie' Limonaia Suites and all rooms located above the imposing Loggia cherish views over the town of Florence and the Arno valley. Relax on a lounger, sip a cocktail among the fragrant roses and lemon trees or take a tour exploring the heritage of this magnificent building.


The Michelin-starred Oro Restaurant, designed by architect Adam Tihany, reflects the romantic atmosphere of Venice and sets the perfect scene for a timeless dining experience. Also, the Belmond Villa San Michele is offering a unique way of learning the secrets of Italian cuisine at the hotel's cookery school, where hands-on lessons are taught by the Executive Chef Attilio Di Fabrizio. Besides La Loggia restaurant and terrace, there is also as one of the options, spending time simply basking in the Tuscan sun by an open-air heated swimming pool, soaking in panoramic vistas across Florence. Moreover, for the youngest, there is available dedicated Kids' Club in a secluded corner of the Italian Gardens.
