At some point in the drive up to Belmond Villa San Michele it hits you are not on your way to a typical city center hotel. That feeling is reaffirmed as you wind your way up the hotel's narrow, winding driveway, rounding the final bend to first see the circa 1600 Michelangelo attributed facade of the former monastery. As you...

My partner and I have had the fortune and pleasure of staying at other Belmond Italian hotels, all of which have exceeded expectations. It was difficult to imagine that the Villa San Michele could surpass its Belmond partners but the hotel and facilities were the finest we have encountered in Italy. A magical location with a panoramic view below of...

On the second leg of our Belmond Italian 'Grand Tour' we stayed in this beautiful renaissance monastery-turned luxury 5 star hotel. Despite a few initial teething problems (which the hotel's manager dealt with quickly) we had an excellent stay. The suite we stayed in, 'Limonaia' had truly breathtaking views of Florence and the ambience, service and food in La Loggia,...

This has to be one of our best hotel experiences ever. We knew the hotel was beautiful and historic from the pictures and reviews we had read.
