Il Salviatino

Via del Salviatino 21, Florence, Tuscany, 50100, Italy

The dramatic approach (via a curving private drive lined with cypresses) to this 14th-century villa sets the tone: it's all uphill from there, from the welcome glass of prosecco in the hall, to its remarkable rooms. All have high ceilings, and are simply but elegantly furnished. Many have views of the Italianate garden directly below and Florence further yon. The opulent library is a good place to unwind (it does double duty as the breakfast room and dining room during the cooler months), as are the terraces. Equally soothing is their state-of-the-art Devarana Spa. The sweeping main staircase is lit with candles at night to dramatic effect. La Cucina, the restaurant, serves Tuscan food with clever, creative twists. A shuttle bus runs regularly from the hotel, making getting to and fro simple.
