The idyllically situated Belmond Villa San Michele hotel vaunts spectacular views from its hilltop position in Fiesole. Its iconic loggia lines the left side, where lunch and dinner are served as the city spreads out below. Their pool and lounge bar add even more allure to the stunning hotel, with the centuries-old Monte Ceceri forest viewable from the terrace, creating a calming oasis. The Italian garden is the setting for a series of high calibre events this season for a blissful experience just a short distance from Florence.
