I stayed here for a couple of days last June and I have to say it is by far the best and most beautiful hotel I have stayed in so far. The service was superb, food was fantastic, cracking cocktails and a great wine list. The views are absolutely stunning - sitting in the restaurant overlooking Florence and Tuscany was... More

We had a lovely dinner at the Villa San Michele in Fiesole just outside Florence. We had drinks at one end of a large loggia with a pianist playing before we were seated for dinner at the other end of the lovely loggia overlooking the city of Florence. The façade of the VSM was painted by Michelangelo when the building... More

We came here searching for a beautiful location for our wedding. The view is fantastic and the service is fairly good! There were some restrictions, but we weren't worried about them... we set out to test the venue foremost by testing the food. We had a late lunch... the food was worse than some tourist traps in Florence. Pasta and... More

Yeah, you're staying in a former monastery dating back to the 15th century that Michelangelo helped design, but that aside, this is an amazing hotel. The views overlooking Florence, the staff, the pool, the grounds, the lobby, the food, etc, etc.. I will never forget this place. Even if you can just get in there for a couple of nights,... More

Villa San Michele no doubt one of our favourite hotel in Italy. It ticks of all the boxes of the ideal city break holiday- great location with breath taking view over the Florence; lovely pool area; great cosy rooms (some reviewers found them out of date but it's common in Italy, so it did not surprise us); great breakfast and...
