Our favourite rooms
The Melodia, Tegliacci and Affresco Suites are grand and opulent, with restored fresco ceilings, imposing fireplaces and plump chesterfields. The Ojetti Suite has a dramatic sun room, the floor of which is the glass ceiling of the hotel’s tremendous main staircase, a private roof terrace and a Jacuzzi bath with a spectacular view.
Open between April and October, the terraced pool area has three heated, cascading infinity pools, overlooking a green valley and surrounded by scented roses and lavender.
Set in a lush green corner of the hotel's grounds, Spa Il Salviatino uses products by Florentine perfumier and cosmetologist Dr Vranjes. It has a dedicated team of therapists, specialising in aromatherapeutic relaxation and anti-ageing treatments, and is open from 10am to 6.30pm for your pampering needs. In summer, there are four treatment rooms – two massage rooms and two double rooms for couples – with steam showers set amid rolling Italian gardens. In the winter – from November to April – the spa moves into the main building's two treatment rooms.
Some Italian designer chic so you’re as stylish as your surroundings; trainers and swimwear for gym and spa; flat shoes for exploring Fiesole.
Il Salviatino has a regular shuttle service into Florence.
