Surrounded by lush trees and terraced gardens, with sweeping views over Florence and the Arno Valley, the location of Villa San Michele, a Belmond Hotel, will take your breath away.
Step inside and experience the beauty of a Renaissance monastery. The hotel's interiors are steeped in history – witness the romantic Loggia, the light-filled Cloister Bar and the Cenacolo Room with its fresco of The Last Supper.
The riches continue in the rooms and suites, where antique furnishings meet spectacular views. Choose the Michelangelo Suite and you’ll be in the original monks’ library with windows framing Florentine vistas. Look out from the Leonardo Suite and you’ll espy the hill of Monte Ceceri, where da Vinci once tested his flying machine.
Outside, stroll through the property's Italian gardens bursting with lemon trees and fragrant roses to discover a 400-year-old wisteria – the only one in Florence to bloom twice a year. Follow a winding path to the heated swimming pool and relax on a lounger, soaking up the panoramas.
The hotel's history is remarkable, but here things are kept fresh. The ongoing art programme sees edgy installations juxtaposed with medieval architecture. The new cellar and locanda will delight wine lovers. Budding cooks can master not only local fare, but also Tuscan fusion cuisine at Villa San Michele's celebrated Cookery School. The energy continues to buzz in this most vibrant of places.
