Villa San Michele, a historic monastery, is set on a hilltop overlooking Florence and surrounded by lovely gardens. The rooms are spacious and well equipped, many with private terraces, and the staff is highly professional while at the same time very welcoming.Villa San Michele is located approximately 1/2 hour from the centre of the historic district and the hotel offers...

This is truly an exceptional property, service is first class, the view amazing... You can relax in the gardens or by the pool and be able to reach Florence downtown easily. We'll come back for sure! Don't miss a Bellini at the Bar!

We have stayed in this Hotel several times. It is wonderful. The last time we stayed there was when Michael Caine was there with his wife and his good friend Michael Winner, who is no longer alive. It is situated in a beautiful country setting overlooking Florence. There is a good hotel shuttle service which takes their guests to and... More

In your life, if you are lucky like us, you find yourself so engrossed in a scene or a moment that you "lose yourself." Your brain has taken a "device time-out" like a computer that is having issues. Sitting in La Loggia, the restaurant that is essentially an open air balcony, staring down to Florence and the Domo and some... More

I always wanted to stay at this hotel because of its reputation, but could not justify the cost. This year we spent one night here when our favorite hotel closed for the season. The view is beautiful and the room was lovely. The dining room was a disappointment. We were wedged at dinner between a family with a screaming child... More

We had a very pleasant stay for three nights at Villa San Michele. From the moment we arrived until our checkout, we felt welcome by the reception staff and led to a beautiful junior suite overlooking the gardens and the city of Florence. The room was well appointed and spacious with most amenities you can wish for (but why don't... More

Peaceful with great views and wonderful attentive service. If you don´t care to be away from the center of Florence, this is your perfect hideaway. After staying here and Ritz in Madrid I am becoming an Orient Express fan.

From the moment we entered the long driveway, lined with trees and lush sculptured shrubs, and welcomed by friendly, attentive staff, our entire stay at the hotel was nothing short of magical. The elegantly decorated suite featured the conveniences that you would expect from a luxury hotel. But it was the trimmings for the kids that really made it stand... More

Orient Express do holidays very well, when combining this with the natural beauty of Tuscany and the joys Leonardo and his contemporaries, it makes for a very special combination. When you are stood by the pool or in the lemon gardens looking into the horizon, over the hills and cast your eyes across the Duomo and Florence itself, it feels... More
