Belmond Villa San Michele
This Renaissance work of art, whose collonaded façade is attributed to none other than Michelangelo, must be one of the most intimate and romantic places on earth.
Dating back to the 15th century, this former monastery nestled on a hilltop and surrounded by classical terraced gardens offers spectacular views of nearby Florence.
Here, each privileged guest enjoys the freedom to stroll in the beautifully landscaped Italian gardens, fragrant with lemon trees and roses, or to just relax by the pool. For those wishing to explore the rich variety of Tuscany, they can indulge at both the hotel's fine dining restaurants and the Belmond Villa San Michele Cookery School.
