Belmond Villa San Michele

Italy, Florence

Good for Couples
Family Suites

The Belmond Villa San Michele sits among lemon-grove-lined hills looking straight across to Florence's famous skyline. Housed in a restored 15th-century monastery, it's a luxury hotel with a Renaissance soul. The location on the city's outskirts means you get a countryside stay with Florence an easy (and free) 15-minute shuttle away.

Head to the beautiful gardens after a day of sightseeing, before dinner under the arches on the terrace (hands down, the best views on the property). Menus are filled with local specialities, and for any foodies, there's a well-respected cooking school for learning a few Tuscan techniques. Rooms feature original touches and elegant marble bathrooms, with the best boasting private terraces that lead out into the gardens.


Hotel child prices apply to ages 2-11 years.
The hotel has 45 rooms.

About the location
Florence (Firenze) is the birthplace of the Renaissance – a Tuscan city steeped in world-famous artwork, grand architecture and a trendsetting food scene.

The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore (or Duomo, as it’s known) has dominated the skyline since the 15th century. It’s the fourth biggest cathedral in Europe – and the first stop on most people’s trip to Florence. From here, meandering cobbled lanes lead to Piazza della Signoria and Palazzo Vecchio, the Romanesque town hall.

A trip to Florence wouldn’t be complete without a whirl around the Uffizi Gallery. It houses the world's largest collection of Renaissance masterpieces, including Botticelli's Birth of Venus. Be sure to end at least one day watching the sunset from Ponte Vecchio before sampling some locally sourced antipasti – think mellow cheeses, cured ham and handmade pane sciocco bread.

The countryside unfolds from the Florence city limits. Tour vineyards and villages or hop on a train to another Tuscan city like Pisa or Siena.
Transfer time
