A true Italian classic. San Michele does not wow you with opulent rooms nor does it have amazing facilities however it has romance in abundance. If you want flashy or brand new with gym facilities, this place is not for you.
We had a garden suite which had its own garden overlooking florence. The rooms are a good size but not flashy (of course with an italian price tag). What you get here is career staff who really know how to treat you. We were looked after by Vittorio and his staff like nowhere else before. The restaurant in the summer overlooking the lights of Florence is spectacular. The food again is classical but excellent. The whole place oozes charm, from the frescos inside to the beautiful lemon garden. Having a bellini on the lawn at sunset is one of my favourite memories. It offers the perfect launch pad to visit Florence without being stuck in the sweltering heat of the city.
