Belmond Villa San Michele, Florence, Italy

Originally a Franciscan monastery, with a later façade attributed to Michelangelo, this boutique hotel teems with antique pieces, while foodies are completely spoilt with gastronomic pursuits.

​This stunning 15th-century former monastery is all about romance and location. Set majestically on a hilltop with breathtaking views over the valley of Arno and across Florence, it’s the perfect place to relax and unwind.

​There's also plenty to do, from kids' painting lessons to yoga classes in the manicured gardens or the hotel's Cookery School for the grown-ups (with separate cooking lessons for little ones too).

For the more adventurous, there's mountain biking to Fiesole or Florence, or you can simply laze by the outdoor swimming pool and take a dip in its warm waters while enjoying the amazing panoramic views.

Time-Honoured Elegance

​Majestic in style and reminiscent of a bygone era from the golden age of travel, these long-established resort-style properties may be veterans of luxury holidays, but are far from old-fashioned. Instead they remind us of our heritage with thoughtful touches and captivating traditions (afternoon tea anyone?) still the highlight of every day.
