Belmond Villa San Michele

"Breathtakingly beautiful."

Set among the hills yet just a stone’s throw from the heart of Florence by private shuttle, this great retreat is a joy for the senses. Belmond Villa San Michele boasts forty-six stunning rooms and suites three of which are located in the separate 17th century former convent orangery – now a charming villa. As you wander along Italian terraces, through the lush gardens and past the little chapel you will gain a sense of the history of this remarkable Tuscan Villa which now offers the discerning guest an elegant place of privilege in which to rest. Dining at the villa is a blissful experience of gourmet flavours and awesome views and should you wish to learn a little more about Tuscan cuisine we suggest you enquire about the hotel’s school of cookery.
