Where artisan details and mesmerising views set the tone for this Tuscan retreat.
High in the Tuscan countryside overlooking the Renaissance splendour of Florence, il Salviatino Firenze defines the luxury escape. Originally built in the 15th-century on the site of a 1st-century Roman fortress, il Salviatino Firenze was a villa for an aristocratic Florentine family – an elegant history making it the welcoming retreat it is today.
Surrounded by over 12 acres of private parkland and organic gardens, the suites and rooms each tell their own unique story through frescoes, paintings and curated artisan furnishings. Begin your day with a refreshing dip in the two-tiered outdoor heated swimming pool, or sit by the flowers in the courtyard terrace. Treat mind and body to a ‘polysensorial voyage’ at La Spa Il Salviatino. Then settle down at La Terrazza restaurant to enjoy Tuscan gastronomy at its simplest and most flavourful.
You could easily spend a few hours exploring the vast grounds and the ancient Roman sites in nearby Fiesole. Or board the hotel’s complimentary shuttle service to the heart of Florence, just 15 minutes away. Meet violin makers and sculptors in the artisan quarters. Sail under the Medieval Ponte Vecchio bridge. And discover secret tombs designed by Michelangelo in the Medici Chapels House, before visiting the Duomo, Florence’s magnificent Gothic cathedral. Then as evening falls, return to il Salviatino Firenze and reflect on your adventures with a leather-bound classic and glass of wine in the wood-panelled library.
Enjoy your stay!
