Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Il Salviatino is in an elevated position in the Fiesole hills, surrounded by a 12.5-acre private park - yet is just 15 minutes from Florence city centre.

Rooms at Il Salviatino

The rooms and suites at Il Salviatino provide a tantalising preview of Florence’s architecture - some with incredible 19th-century frescoes, vaulted ceilings, and beautifully-preserved mosaics. Each one is individually designed, and they all have plush beds with handmade Tuscan linens, elegant furnishings, plasma TVs, stylish bathrooms and gorgeous countryside views.

For the very best views of Fiesole, and Florence itself, you can make like a Gothic heroine and stay in one of the tower suites, such as the Ojetti Suite, which has a rooftop Jacuzzi overlooking the Tuscan hills.

Food & Drink

Watched over by imposing paintings in the dining room, or outside on the rosemary scented terrace: dining at Il Salviatino can be as grand or laid-back as you feel like, and enjoyed in a number of unforgettable locations.

From their award-winning breakfasts to exquisite Tuscan and Florentine cuisine, the chefs are passionate about the provenance of local ingredients, and the gourmet dishes, including fresh fish and pasta and traditional desserts such as tiramisu, feature fruit, vegetables and herbs from the organic gardens.


Kick off the day with a few lengths in the beautiful tiered pool, or indulge in a massage or facial at the spa - try the signature treatment, which features local Tuscan wine, and afterwards, find a spot in the elegant wood-panelled library to curl up with a book and a glass of wine. 

Activities at Il Salviatino

Il Salviatino's Service Ambassadors are on hand to help you make the most of your stay, with bespoke experiences such as going truffle hunting in the villa's backyard forest with an expert truffle hunter. 

Hop on the free shuttle bus into the town of Florence. There are few places in the world where you can appreciate so many masterpieces in a day - including Michelangelo’s David and (arguably Florence’s greatest art form) the famous gelato!
