  • Rural grandeur and Florentine views at Hotel Il Salviatino in Fiesole

    Rural grandeur and Florentine views at Hotel Il Salviatino, Fiesole

    On the peripheral borders of Florence, Hotel Il Salviatino offers a unique Tuscan experience from its hillside perch in Fiesole. Enjoy all-round indulgence, opulent living and impeccable service from the aristocratic haunt of this grandiose 17th-century Tuscan villa. Hotel Il Salviatino promises a romantic spot for the most sophisticated urban - and rural - explorer.

    A noble and imposing building within the rugged hillside parkland of Fiesole, Hotel Il Salviatino is a one-of-a-kind property with magnificent views of Florence and the surrounding Tuscan countryside. Occupying a renovated 17th-century Tuscan villa, the structure typifies the region’s architectural magic, with airy shutters, vast arched windows and Juliet balconies beneath a shallow roof. The villa stands with pride before a dramatic arrangement of stone steps that descend from the sweeping terrace into formal grounds, where ornamental gardens are filled with manicured shrubbery, lawns and water features in geometrical shapes. It is from here that you can best witness the spectacular views of Florence, with its haywire maze of terracotta roofing and the conical protrusion that is the Il Duomo. Such views are highly prized by the hotel, and its interiors, facilities and service do not struggle to compete.

    Hotel Il Salviatino has retained from its restoration the feel of a rural stately home, with its wood-panelled library and original parquet floors. Warmth oozes from room-to-room, as theatrical red carpets are found alongside other symbols of tradition and maturity, such as thick rugs and dark wood furniture, fine leathers couches and dignified portraits. Dimly-lit corridors and stone stairwells exude an aura of clandestine romance and mystery as they lead guests toward the guestrooms and suites. Each is individually-decorated to make the most of rooms of varying sizes and shapes, and high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows let in ample natural light. Pristine Tuscan linens ensure an excellent night’s sleep, while a menu of modern amenities cater to guest’s every comfort. 

    Dine and unwind at Hotel Il Salviatino
    Dining at Hotel Il Salviatino is an authentic experience, with home-grown ingredients and produce taken freshly from the hotel’s organic kitchen garden. La Cucina is the setting for your Italian feast, where ambient lighting, fresh white table cloths and floral decorations make for atmospheric dining. The service is impressive and the fine dining fare is exquisite. In summer, meals are served on the Terrazza overlooking the Italian gardens; in winter, the cosy Le Serre will welcome you for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Another site for carefree indulgence is Spa Il Salviatino, where the perfumes of Dr Vranjes create a heady and aromatic backdrop for an array of exclusive treatments and massages – perfect for unwinding at the end of a day of exploring Florence. 

    Discovering Florence
    There is a distinct feeling of remoteness and isolation to this hillside Fiesole villa and yet downtown Florence is only 15 minutes away. Hotel Il Salviatino therefore offers the best of both worlds: rural isolation and proximity to one of the world’s most beautiful cities. With Florence’s architectural delights and cultural attractions practically on the doorstep of this peaceful retreat, guests can experience the frenetic energy of the city by day and retire to the hills by evening for rest, relaxation and indulgence. This makes Hotel Il Salviatino the perfect spot for sophisticated travellers to make the most of the region.

    Prices from £1435 per person based on two people sharing a Deluxe Double room for 7 nights, including scheduled flights with British Airways London to Pisa, hire-car and bed and buffet breakfast.
