This place has everything you would expect at a luxury hotel and more! The staff is incredibly attentive, friendly, and eager to make your stay wonderful and memorable. The hotel is perched on a hillside with stunning views of Florence from the courtyard and restaurant. While only a short trip from downtown Florence, it feels like a world away.

The attention to detail and impeccable service from the friendly staff at the Villa San Michele was the beginning of a memorable evening. Panoramic views of Florence below with the surrounding mountains was a beautiful backdrop while sipping on a refreshing aperitivo followed by a delicious dinner and dessert. At times it was difficult to look at my friends and...

My first trip to Florence and I get to experience dinner at Villa San Michele. WOW! The view of the city of Florence from a terraced mount is amazing. And with the best of company, it was truly a night to remember. The attention to detail during our visit and dinner was impeccable. Everything about this place screams Italian excellence....

There really are not enough words to describe how absolutely spectacular this property is. Every single minute of our stay was perfect, from the moment we arrived. Both my husband and I lived in Florence. In fact, this is where we met 3 years ago. We always knew we would return to Florence for our honeymoon, but never expected we...

What a magnificent hotel.... It is simply beautiful. Our garden suite was amazing. One of the highlights was having breakfast in out very own garden overlooking Florence. The food and wine were good (very overpriced though) and the service was pretty good. The laundry service was excellent but incredibly overpriced. Communication within the staff was a bit of a problem....

I am not sure that there is a more magical place to stay than a Belmond hotel in Italy. Villa San Michele is true five star. The location, the rooms, the food, the service and the views - it has everything. Total luxury and complete relaxation in a beautiful and peaceful setting. Hope to return soon.

We stayed here just over a week ago. Arrived and were upgraded to a lovely garden suite. Just delightful as it was our 30th Wedding Anniversary.The Suite was perfect. The Hotel and gardens are an oasis of peace and calm. Lovely pool and views. Small but good gym. Delicious food. Charming and courteous staff. We will definitely be returning.

We have visited Florence many times and normally stay in town. We decided to try something different and more quiet. We had been to Villa San Michele for dinner on several occasions and this time decided to stay here. As usual for a Belmond property, the staff and service are amazing. We had an amazing suite, known as the Michelangelo...

It is surrounded by a large, wooded park and lush terraced gardens boasting magnificent views of the city and the Arno Valley below. The 45 bedrooms and suites are simple, peaceful and elegant while the Renaissance splendour of Florence is a mere 15 minutes away with the complimentary shuttle service, running every 20 minutes. La Loggia Restaurant provides a unique dining venue where guests can enjoy their lunch or dinner, based on Italian and Tuscan cuisine, while admiring the view over Florence. For a light lunch or a snack, the Pool Restaurant, situated directly by the hilltop panoramic swimming pool, is the ideal place. For food lovers, the renown Cooking School offers hands-on lessons to learn how to prepare the best Italian specialties. A Kids' Club and a dedicated Kids' Concierge are available to make the stay of younger guests truly unforgettable. The new Davanzati Room offers privacy and tranquillity thanks to its exclusive location, and a spacious terrace with a view for small banquets, cocktails and coffee breaks.
