    Our opinion

    Il Salviatino is a cosy and luxurious hotel in the hills above Florence with outstanding personal service.

    Hotel description

    Il Salviatino is a remarkable, luxurious hotel on the hillside in Fiesole, enjoying magnificent views of Florence and its Duomo. Standing amid acres of private parkland and beautifully landscaped gardens, Il Salviatino was once the family home of the Salviati, Bardi and Ojetti families and today the villa has been completely refurbished as a luxury hotel. During the 19th century the villa attracted local and international artists who would mingle with its aristocratic owners. Today, the villa retains very much the feel of an aristocratic family home with its wood-panelled library and original parquet floors. The rooms and suites are situated in both the main villa and in the so-called Greenhouses underneath the Italian Gardens. The eight Greenhouse suites have glass covered porch areas and direct access to the park, whilst Dome View Deluxe rooms and Dome View Junior Suites have a view of the Florence Duomo. Warm and elegant, Il Salviatino offers guests a unique, distinctive hotel experience, with the Service Ambassadors anticipating every guest’s need, thus ensuring an unforgettable stay from beginning to end. A unique place is the extraordinary Il Salviatino SPA, uniting Il Salviatino’s idyllic setting and renowned service with the ancestral knowledge and delicate aromas of Dr Vranjes, one of Florence’s most exclusive perfume houses. In a region renowned for its culinary heritage, food and beverage at Il Salviatino have been conceived to be far more than a service but a memorable journey to the roots of Tuscan gastronomy. In summer, meals are served on the Terrazza overlooking the Italian gardens and the city of Florence. In winter, “Le Serre” will welcome you for breakfast, lunch and dinner, in its cosy and relaxed atmosphere. Children are welcome at Il Salviatino and babysitting can be arranged, there are connecting rooms and extra beds can be allocated to all but the Deluxe and Dome Deluxe rooms. Il Salviatino combines a beautiful location with excellent facilities and services, highly recommended.
