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.
