Villa San Michele was a dream stay. From the moment you arrive, you know this will be a first class experience. The hotel itself is a monastery that has been beautifully kept and renovated. The views of Florence from San Michele are breathtaking and you can easily loose yourself while admiring the views from the pool. The service in San... More

The beautiful building, it's hillside location and the attentive staff make San Michelle a delight to stay at. Housekeeping keep the rooms spotless, beautiful linen bedding, immaculate gardens and the shuttle to and from Florence centre essential. If you get a quick run its about 20 minutes. Breakfast and dinner are served on the arched terrace over looking the city-... More

We spent a truly enjoyable week at the property in June 2016. It excels at everything it does. The service was excellent with nothing too much trouble. The property is stunning, beautifully maintained with breath-taking views and the food..... something else! They even laid on a Vespa for us to use!

Fantastic hotel, with the most amazing view of Florence . We had an entry level room which was very spacious and well designed. Issues to be aware of is you are out of town and have to get complementary bus down. Out of season this is only every hour and taxis can get expensive. However it is better to have... More

Staying up on the hills demands some extra planning effort to make sure you'll enjoy Florence at night. On the other hand, the view and the slightly cooler temperature are amazing. But what really made the difference for me was having Massimo and Paolo helping us with everything, from pre-paid reservations to the museums to great tips and arrangements for... More

We dined here for our anniversary dinner - but walked the property before and after dinner. Perched on a hilltop in Fiesole this property is absolutely gorgeous with amazing views of the City of Florence. The gardens were well kept and rooms all had great views of either the gardens or the City.
