A mere 15 minutes away from the delights of Florence, Villa San Michele, A Belmond Hotel is nestled among the Tuscan hills, affording stunning views over the local landscape. Originally a 15th century monastery, this boutique hotel has been thriving since the 1980s, and its stunning façade is attributed to Michelangelo himself. Offering a selection of lavish suites and rooms, Villa San Michele, A Belmond Hotel channels the opulence of a bygone era with sumptuous fabrics, beautiful marble bathrooms and lush gardens to explore.
Dining with a view
Perched high above the city below, La Loggia restaurant is the jewel in Villa San Michelle’s crown. The open terrace affords superlative panoramic views, which make a fabulous accompaniment to your breakfast or evening meal. Top chefs prepare fresh seafood and cured meats using only the finest ingredients.
If you want to take a taste of Tuscany home with you, why not join the chef for a bespoke cookery lesson? You can learn how to make fresh pasta, or how to curate a wine pairing menu, and there’s even a junior chef school for youngsters. In the evening, head to La Loggia Bar to enjoy refreshing cocktails while listening to live piano music.
Outings with a difference
The concierge team at Villa San Michele, A Belmond Hotel has a few tricks up its sleeve when it comes to planning day activities. A shuttle can drop you right in the centre of Florence throughout the day, where you can hire an iconic three-wheeled Ape Calessino electric car to zoom around the city. Further afield, explore the Chianti hills and visit the cashmere farms or join a wine tasting tour. For something truly special, why not explore Florence from the sky in a hot air balloon? However you spend your time here, Villa San Michele, A Belmond Hotel offers a truly memorable holiday experience for the whole family.
