Belmond Villa San Michele, Florence, Italy

By Elite Traveler

belmond villa san michele - top 100 hotelsA former monastery, Belmond Villa San Michele dates back to the 15th century, and the facade is thought to be designed by Michelangelo. Many of the original features remain, including cloisters, vaulted ceilings, domed arches and terra-cotta floors. The Florentine antiques and Old Master paintings add to the Renaissance feel. The location is fantastic — tucked into a secluded forested hillside just below the ancient village of Fiesole, the views are breathtaking. Gaze down across Florence and to the Chianti hills beyond, or a bit closer by, check out the terraced gardens. Gourmands will enjoy the culinary school — the intimate classes uncover the secrets of Italian cooking with chef Attilio Di Fabrizio.

Limonaia Villa from $8,300 per night. Contact Emanuele Manfroi, general manager,, +39 055 567 8200,
