VILLA SAN MICHELE, FLORENTINE CHARM

If you are looking for a romantic getaway then beautiful Florence, and more specifically, the Villa San Michele, is the place for you.

The Hotel Belmond Villa San Michele dominates the city of Florence and the Arno valley from the hills of Fiesole. Only 15 minutes from the city center, it is in quite the privileged location, which allows you to enjoy all the pleasures of Italy. Treat yourself to a walk along the Arno river bank with your gelato in hand to watch the sunset, then go relax back at the Villa San Michele, thanks to their free shuttle service!

The Villa San Michele is nestled in a former Franciscan monastery, built in the 15th century, and has been the subject of careful restoration to preserve its architecture and original decorative elements. A pure Florentine gem, the facade is courtesy of Michelangelo (THE Michelangelo!) and the current lobby still retains the attributes of the old chapel. Listed among the Historic Italian Monuments, the hotel welcomes you in a calm and cozy atmosphere covered in shades of beige, gray and white and accented with Florentine decor in the shared spaces.

The 21 rooms of the Villa San Michele are decorated in typical Florentine style and were created by Tuscan artisans. The bathrooms on the other hand are decorated with Carrara marble and fine woods. Some suites are located in the hotel gardens, hidden behind it’s lush vegetation. A feeling of exclusivity and luxury is subtle yet ever present.

One of the suites welcomes you in the exceptional setting of the old chapel while another is placed in the greenhouse of the old monastery. All the suites offer a terrace and private garden. If you want to go big, book the Limonaia Suite & Villa with its private garden, heated pool, kitchenette and audio equipment. This villa can also be connected with two other suites to create a more private and intimate space. In short, it is a villa in a villa!

After checking in, inspecting your suites and jumping on your bed with joy, go take a walk on the terraced gardens of Belmond Villa San Michele. Let yourself be overwhelmed by the sweet feeling of serenity and inhale the delicate fragrances of the plants and fragrant flowers. In this garden you will find: honeysuckle, rose, climbing verbena, thyme, lavender, but also glycine, nasturtiums, ivy, lemon and orange trees.

There is nothing better than to lie by the outdoor heated pool and recover from the outside world. (The pool is heated to 26° all season). Enjoy the view and pair this dream sequence with a refreshing drink from the Pool Restaurant Bar.

A gym is available for hotel clients and they can arrange horse rides as well on request. Also available are tennis courts, golf, Vespa excursions to explore Tuscany or even rafting excursions.

With regards to food, breakfasts and dinners take place in La Loggia which offers an idyllic romantic setting with spectacular views of Florence and the Valley. For relaxation after a day spent exploring, head to the La Loggia bar which is ideal for cocktails or the Cloister Bar under the canopy. The Pool Restaurant Bar is available throughout the day for snacks.

The Villa San Michele is a timeless place where refinement and thoughtfulness make your stay memorable. You leave with one desire: to return as soon as possible.

    Together with everything which appears to be developing inside this particular area, your opinions are actually rather exciting. Even so, I beg your pardon, because I can not subscribe to your whole strategy, all be it radical none the less. It appears to everybody that your opinions are generally not totally justified and in actuality you are your self not really entirely convinced of your argument. In any event I did appreciate examining it.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any methods to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.
