Why Stay At Il Salviatino
Live like a Renaissance prince in a frescoed villa with skyline views from the edge of Florence.
In the 14th century, the noble Florentine Salviati family built a sumptuous country villa on Florence's northeastern outskirts. In 2010, after two years of renovations that revealed long-lost frescoes on the ceilings and hidden pathways twisting through the gardens, Marcello Pigozzo reopened the villa as a hotel. The 45 accommodations are exquisitely appointed with Tuscan linens, original art, and timeless modern furnishings that complement the Renaissance surroundings. Il Salviatino manages to be away from it all—rising just high enough up the foothills climbing toward Fiesole to enjoy a skyline view—yet convenient to the sights downtown (via a short taxi ride or brief stroll to a city bus stop). The property also features a split-level pool, two restaurants serving classic Tuscan cuisine, and Italy's only Devarana spa. Visit Property Website
The Affresco Suite comes with your own private frescoes; if you're sticking with a double room, book a Dome View de Luxe to enjoy a Florentine panorama from your bed.
The brick-vaulted Green House Suites may not be in the main villa, but they are much larger than most rooms and provide more privacy, and feature floor-to-ceiling glass entrances directly onto the gardens.
Arrive at Florence Airport (FLR), which is approximately 10 miles from the resort. Anticipate about 30 minutes of travel time.Via del Salviatino 21, Florence, Tuscany, Italy
