a glamorous base from which to explore nearby Florence
Il Salviatino, a magnificently renovated luxury boutique hotel overlooking Florence, is a truly luxurious Chic Retreat. While restoring this villa, some spectacular features were unearthed and carefully restored to their former glory, including beautiful frescos and flourishing Italian gardens. With art pieces sourced from around the world by the respected architect, Luciano Colombo, the entire villa has been decorated to perfection and the building is architecturally and historically interesting, dating back to the 15th century and rebuilt and renovated by many aristocratic owners throughout the centuries. This beautiful luxury villa is perfect for a luxurious retreat.
The Spa at Salviatino by Vranjes, unites Il Salviatinos idyllic setting and renowned service with the ancestral knowledge and delicate aromas of Dr Vranjes, one of Florences most exclusive perfume houses.
Together they have created a scented path which allows you to enjoy a vast array of treatments and massages each unique and magical. The historic centre of Florence, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is just 10 minutes away and the city - often regarded as the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance - is crammed with spectacular architecture and monuments, including the magnificent Duomo.
The dining experience at Il Salviatino is far more than just a service, but rather an unforgettable journey to the roots of authentic Tuscan gastronomy. The day starts with an award- winning breakfast which can be enjoyed at any time (and in any place). Throughout the day you can savour a series of local specialties all carefully crafted by the Michelin starred Chef, Carmine Caló who is completely focused on using only the finest local ingredients elegantly presented.
