Among the hills, yet a stone’s throw from the heart of the city: in a mere 13 minutes a private shuttle connects this delightful retreat with great artworks, shops and palaces. A unique panorama: nature and culture, town and country. The best of all worlds.
Villa San Michele began life in the 15th century as a monastery, with a façade designed by Michelangelo. Today it is one of Europe’s most beautiful hotels. Step inside to a warm, light-flooded space that was once the monastery crape. The arms of the noble Davanzati family still stand proud.
46 magnificent suites and rooms bring the Renaissance era to life. Some are within the historic villa, others are scattered gracefully among the gardens, above the Italian terraces, and in a little chapel, the old greenhouse and the ancient Limonaia. A cluster of suites nestles near the pool, immersed in parkland. Large picture windows, private gardens and terraces overlook Florence, the Chianti hills and the Tuscan countryside. Bathrooms superbly furnished in marble and rich wood. Adjacent, communicating rooms are perfect for those travelling with chidren.
The private garden of a junior suite, overlooking the panorama of Florence. The colours, the sunlight, the clear skies..the spirit of the Renaissance is all around. A Renaissance Villa with an Italian garden that surrounds it like a fragrant garland. An immense park filled with trees: the scent of flowers and fruits. A sublime view over Florence. A world apart. The finest resort from which to appreciate the city of the Medicis.
Villa San Michele is steeped in history. A boundless park, dotted with magnificent trees. Floral terraces cascading down the hillside. Memories to live with the whole family.
