In the 15th century, the Villa San Michele was a monastery, today it is one of Europe's most fascinating hotels. A renaissance Villa, a perfect view of Florence. The resort from which to appreciate the city of the Medicis. A superb luxury hotel which could only be one of the Grand Luxury Hotels !
Formerly a 15th-century Franciscan monastery, the Villa San Michele is surrounded by its own gardens and woodland on the Fiesole hills. The present aspect of the building, with its façade attributed to Michelangelo and the imposing lateral Loggia looking towards Florence, dates from the year 1600, when the monastery was enlarged and completely renovated at the expense of Giovanni di Bartolomeo Davanzati.
Villa San Michele must be one of the most romantic hotels in the world. Here, each visitor is a privileged guest, invited to stroll in the Italian gardens, filled with lemon trees and roses, and savour the superb Tuscan cuisine on the alfresco loggia as if in a private home.
