Villa San Michele

The Great Outdoors

Personal Trainer 

What could be more enjoyable than a day spent striding out among the Fiesole hills or in the Chianti region, with a personal trainer to guide you to the most scenic trails? Two hours of walking or jogging in the heart of the stunning Parco di Montececeri or the Chianti winelands will create a lasting impression.


Cycling is by far the best way to discover those hidden details of a landscape—such as its colours and scents—that most people in today’s frenetic world simply forget to notice. We can organise guided bike tours on selected routes through the heart of historic Florence, the renowned Chianti wine area or the former Etruscan/Roman town of Fiesole.

Football Training (Children 7-12 years old)  

In Italy, football is considered the national sport. For children aged 7 to 12 years, we can book a coach to teach them the basic techniques of Italian football on the beautiful campus of Settignano, just around the corner from the technical centre of Coverciano, the official seat of the National Italian Football Team.

Advance booking is advised. Please contact our Concierge.
