Il Salviatino - Florence
Once a summer home for the Medici family, Il Salviatino is now a luxury 5-star Florence hotel that retains its charming elegance to this day. Only a 25-minute drive from Florence Airport, this restored 15th-century villa lies amid beautiful manicured gardens and comes complete with its own outdoor pool. Looking down upon stunning views such as the Duomo di Firenze and Giotto’s Campanile, or bell-tower, this Florence spa hotel is a picture-perfect destination for those looking for a romantic getaway in the Tuscan countryside. Il Salviatino is also within easy reach of Florence’s many urban attractions. A free shuttle bus runs between the hotel and the city center, a mere 15-minute drive for those who wish to admire one of the largest cathedral domes in the world at the Duomo, or pay a visit to the Uffizi gallery, which houses works by artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, and Rembrandt.
Classic elegance combines with modern excellence at this stately hotel as you relax on 100% handmade Tuscan linen surrounded by 19th-century mosaics and take advantage of the free WiFi. Unwind in an ornate “Old-World” bath-tub while enjoying the integrated sound system. Once you have finished your free breakfast, begin your day with a few lengths in the outdoor swimming pool, or perhaps pay a visit to the Turkish bath and spa, the latter of which is overseen by Dr Paolo Vranjes, owner of one of Florence’s most exclusive perfume houses. Il Salviatino also boasts its own on-site restaurant, La Cucina. Enjoy the gastronomic talent of Chef Carmine Caló, past winner of a Michelin Star and also of the Best Young Chef in Central Italy award, as he creates culinary delights from produce grown in Il Salviatino’s very own organic vegetable garden. The villa’s friendly staff, known in Il Salviatino as Service Ambassadors, are informative and helpful, and cooking classes and Tuscan wine excursions are available upon request.
Il Salviatino is described by its guests as the epitome of perfect luxury. Visitors comment on the beautiful gardens and stunning views from the hotel terrace. Also praised are the wine tours and excursions offered by the hotel.
