About the hotel
SETTING & STYLE
The Villa San Michele must be one of the most romantic places in the whole of Italy. This former monastery sits nestled in the hillside town of Fiesole, and is surrounded by beautiful terraced gardens, overlooking the city of Florence. Dating from the 15th century, its façade is attributed to Michelangelo, with the stunning loggia dating back to 1600. Much of the original artwork now resides in Florence’s museums, although a number of works can still be seen at the Villa, including the 17th century fresco by Nicodemo Ferrucci, depicting the Last Supper, and which adorns what was once the monks’ refectory. In 1982 the Villa underwent extensive restoration, and now offers 42 guestrooms and suites, located in the old monastery building or nestled amongst the lovely gardens. Each room is unique and furnished with exquisite period furniture.
