This was the third and final stop, as well as the third Belmond hotel that we stayed at on this trip to Italy. We began the trip at the Villa Sant Andrea in Taromina, Sicily, then on to the Hotel Caruso in Ravello and ended at the San Michele in Florence. I will call it our "Triple Crown" experience!! I...

This property had a great promotion with 30% off rack on Room #1 with an adjoining room for the kids for free. Can't say we didn't get our money's worth. The property is visually stunning and the views all around and especially the pool are killer ones. The rooms we had were junior suites and were spacious with large showers... More

Best villa hotel in Florence surrounded from an amazing country side. Amazing food and nice service. I enjoyed it for just two day, but I will always remember that view of Florence city from the private swimming pool.

For many years, in my estimation, Florence has been a very worn-out, smoke-choked,tourist-ridden capital. No matter where you stay, hotel or rental, you cannot escape the lines, the dirt and the noise. I say all of this to properly set up the importance and promise of San Michel. Clearly a respite in a place that needs escaping from. Whether you... More

My husband and I stayed there for three nights as part of our first trip to Florence. It is in a town called Fiesole which is about 15 minutes outside of Florence. There is a free shuttle service from the hotel that runs until about 8:30 at night. We did use cabs for the most part to go into the... More

We have just enjoyed our second stay at Villa San Michele with our two children (12 and 15). Having had an amazing experience the first time round a few years ago we were slightly nervous as to whether it might not live up to our memories. Happily we were proved wrong. Everything was perfect. All the reviews talk about the... More

We have recently returned from 7 days at VSM with our 2 children (15 and 14). It was wonderful, near perfect and with a few minor improvements could indeed be perfect. The greeting on arrival was absolutely marvellous - warm, friendly, everything one could want; and those checking us in at the front desk did a marvellous job. From there... More

No description will do this justice. You simply must stay at Villa San Michele to understand how incredible this place is. With sweeping views over Florence and staff with incredible attention to detail to ensure your stay is memorable. Eating dinner or breakfast on the covered terrace is a breathtaking experience and with a shuttle to transport you to Florence... More

Ok if you visit this hotel you will not be disappointed let me assure you. However when you are paying considerable sums none of us should be afraid of requiring the very best because that's why one visits places like this. I ,like most of us ,enjoy the good things in life and am prepared to pay for them so... More

We went to this hotel on our honeymoon approx 17 years ago and for sentimental reasons, we recently returned with our three children. The restaurant is still amazing and the rooms are now in need of redecorating. The grounds and the pool are still beautiful but the pool drinks and food were outrageously expensive. We loved the soft beds, air... More
