Set in a hand restored 15th-century villa, the luxurious Il Salviatino, a member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts Legend Collection, sits on 12 acres of a lush park with blooming organic gardens and original frescoes. The setting could not be more beautiful — set high in Florence’s hills and overlooking the Tuscan countryside. Il Salviatino seamlessly combines its magical setting with bespoke service and a personal touch. There’s a lot of fun stuff to do, from truffle hunting in the gardens to private winery tours and family-style Tuscan dinners.

Located in the main house, the suite measures 73 m2 and comes with a bedroom, a living area with a fireplace below an original coat of arms, a bathroom with rain shower and Jacuzzi, and features state of the art technology such as flat-screen TV, Bose sound system and more.

If you are up for dining by the poolside, to a casual meal in the gardens, or a romantic candlelit dinner on the terrace, Il Salviatino makes sure you get the best meal served with an incredible view.
