“A charming 15th Century monastery adorned with Michelangelo facade, turned luxurious boutique hotel. The chic rooms exude old world elegance and style. Enjoy fine dining at the Michelin starred restaurant or overlooking Florence from the immaculate gardens. Totally unique. ”

Hotel Review

Occupying a 15th-century monastery that nestles in a spectacular terraced garden with unrivalled views of Florence, this is one of Italy’s most famous (and expensive) hotels. The style throughout is of understated, luxurious elegance which enhances rather than interferes with the intoxicating aura of the past. The views down to the city are splendid: dinner under the loggia at sunset is an unforgettable experience. Immaculate service completes the picture.

Belmond Villa San Michele

"The hotel offers restrained good taste rather than flashy luxury. It occupies a former Franciscan monastery dating from the 15th century (the weathered, porticoed façade is said to be by Michelangelo). "
