Summary

Short description

Historic luxury blessed by emperors and Renaissance masters

About

Recommended for:
City | Food & wine | Natural world

This Renaissance monastery expresses its century-old history in Last-Supper frescoes, lauded family crests and a façade attributed to the great Italian master – Michelangelo. It's all ideally poised on a hilltop just outside Florence, offering spectacular views of the Arno Valley and the city’s famous dome. What’s more, a complimentary shuttle is on hand to let you explore.

And this gorgeous panorama is showcased by a full range of luxurious facilities. You'll enjoy drinks in the wisteria gardens, you'll dine on regional treats at La Loggia Restaurant and relax with a snack by the panoramic, heated pool. If you are feeling inspired by the Tuscan gastronomy, book onto one of the hotel’s excellent cooking courses.

Moreover, although its grounds have hosted da Vinci’s test flights and its library has headquartered Napoleon Bonaparte, there are also some delightfully contemporary flourishes. Informed by Florence’s thriving street art, modernist installations are spread across the hotel - this is a place where past and present blend to perfection

This enchanting retreat also offers a wide range of enticing activities.. There is everything from Pilate classes to Shiatsu massages. Elsewhere, exclusive outdoor experiences await, such as rafting on the Arno River or a street food tour for the chance to sample some of the region's gastronomic delights.

The rooms and suites are decidedly historic. Most of them are located in the monastery itself and come complete with cherry-wood furniture, Carrara marble vanities and overlooks of either the cloisters or Florence itself. Elsewhere, the suites boast truly privileged panoramas and one even features a private plunge pool
