BELMOND VILLA SAN MICHELE
Reservations: 1 800 237 1236
Dating from the 15th century, the Villa’s facade is attributed to Michelangelo. Step inside and you experience the ethereal beauty and solitude 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.
Enjoy magnificent views across the Arno Valley and Florence from the panoramic heated swimming pool.
Situated on a grassy plateau above the gardens, reached by a winding path, a pool snack bar serves tasty lunches and snacks.
Length – 25m
Width – from 5m
Depth – from 1.4 – 2.2m
Once nurtured by Franciscan monks, the immaculate 15th-century gardens at Belmond Villa San Michele include a large wooded park and terraced lawns.
Relax on a lounger, sip a cocktail among the fragrant blooms or take a tour with our gardeners.
Keep fit while surrounded by nature. Run or walk along the path through the woods, and supplement your session with a special exercise station set up along the way.
Indulge in a massage on our dedicated gazebo. Located in a secluded corner of the Italian gardens, it’s the perfect place to unwind while enjoying the stunning view over Florence.
If you would like a massage in your room, please speak to the concierge.
With panoramic vistas across Florence, all the equipment at the gym is window facing and includes weights (from 1-10kg), two bicycles, a treadmill and a step machine.
Full changing facilities, including showers and hair dryers, are available.
Join our personal trainer for a tailor-made workout that might see you striding out among the Fiesole hills or jogging in the heart of the Chianti winelands.
