Belmond Villa San Michele

Modern luxury meets Renaissance splendour

Nestled in the Fiesole hills, this former medieval monastery perfectly captures the romance of Florence

Blending 14th-century artistry with the region’s ethereal beauty, Belmond Villa San Michele is as inspiring as the city’s greatest cathedrals and galleries. Our facade, attributed to Michelangelo, is hugged by lush woodland and terraced gardens. Step outside and gaze down across Florence and to the Chianti hills beyond. 
 
Please note the hotel is closed for the season and will reopen on 1 April 2019.
