Escape the hustle and bustle of Florence and opt for a 15th century villa just outside the city. Il Salviatino has commanding views over Florence, dominated by the cathedral dome, and looking east there is nothing but uninterrupted Tuscan countryside.

Il Salviatino is a traditional 15th century villa, updated to meet modern needs while retaining its authentic charm. The rooms are brimming with antique baths, weathered oak floors and leather armchairs. Flat screen TV's are cleverly concealed in large mirrors, adding a touch of modernity to this very traditional Florentine villa. Meanwhile there are enough valuable paintings lining the walls to make a museum jealous.

There are two restaurants to choose from, both serving delectable food influenced by the region and seasons. With views over Florence, La Terrazza provides the perfect setting in which to enjoy classic Tuscan dishes. These are then re-created with a modern twist in Le Serre restaurant.

The Spa Il Salviatino in the grounds of the hotel offers an extensive treatment list focused on a Tuscan experience, with fragrances and products from Dr. Vranjes, and is just above the three-level pool. After an active day of sightseeing in Florence, Il Salviatino is a sanctuary which many find hard to leave.
