The Hotel

Where Renaissance spirit meets modern indulgence

Surrounded by lush trees and terraced gardens with views down to Florence, our location is hard to beat. Step inside and experience the beauty of a Renaissance monastery that is as much a part of Italy's culture as the country’s greatest cathedrals and galleries.

Today, Belmond Villa San Michele is recognised as one of the country’s finest small boutique hotels. Stroll in the Italian gardens, bursting with lemon trees and fragrant roses, and savour superb Tuscan cuisine on the alfresco loggia as if in a private home.
