Surrounded by lush trees and terraced gardens with views down to Florence, our location is hard to beat. Step inside and experience the beauty of a Renaissance monastery that is as much a part of Italy’s culture as the country’s greatest cathedrals and galleries.
Today, Belmond Villa San Michele is recognised as one of the country’s finest small boutique hotels. Stroll in the Italian gardens, bursting with lemon trees and fragrant roses, and savour superb Tuscan cuisine on the alfresco loggia as if in a private home.

My wife and I spent two nights here as part of an anniversary trip, and were very pleased with the experience. From the beginning to the end of our stay, all of the staff were outstanding, and made us feel so pampered and comfortable. Our room was everything one would expect from a 5 star hotel, including our own terrace and the larger gardens with a magnificent view of Florence. Access into the city was easy, about 20 minutes to the center, either by the hotel’s shuttle or cab, so we didn’t have to use our car. After busy days touring, we chose to eat at each of the two restaurants on site for our dinners—both were excellent in terms of food and service (I have reviewed separately). The breakfast was also outstanding. The pool was open and looked inviting, but in November we chose not to brave the cool air.
From the moment we arrived we were greeted by members of your wonderful staff. They were very welcoming and eager to make our stay comfortable. During our stay we enjoyed many aspects of the beautiful facilities and our room was both extremely clean and comfortable. It was like a home away from home. We enjoyed our dinner in your restaurant as well as cocktails and snacks in the bar and on the terrace. The service was excellent.
I had the pleasure of staying at Villa San Michele for 3 nights in November and truly loved the experience. That is the case, even though we traveled with a 2 1/2 year old. It really started before we arrived--the warm and relaxed, yet responsive and efficient team--that made it so we could both plan in advance and go with the flow during our stay. / The property is 25 mins from central Florence with a free Mercedes van that ran like clockwork so we were in town when we wanted it and relaxing in the hills when we were done. The food at the hotel is extraordinary so I recommend meals on property. / In terms of having a toddler, every single person was kind to her and asked us what they could do to help. There were toys and snacks but it was this welcoming attitude that made us feel comfortable as parents and made it a memorable stay for all of us. I highly recommend this property to everyone!
