Il Salviatino hotel – review

Are you looking for a hotel which offers beautiful views, total relaxation and luxury at its best? Then Il Salviatino is the perfect destination. Opening on 1st June 2009, the 15th Century Villa has been beautifully restored in a multi-million pound project lead by seasoned hotelier Marcello Pigozzo.

Historic shot of exterior:


Il Salviatino, which will be opening as a 61 room luxury hotel, will offer a gourmet al fresco restaurant and holistic spa. All interiors have been individually designed to incorporate the preservation of original and unique features including 19th Century frescoes, huge marble fireplaces and ancient mosaics.


Restoring a piece of the past, Marcello Pigozzo wanted to create a unique hotel which captures the very best of Italian culture and luxury living. With a team of local artisans and award winning architect Luciano Columbo, the villa turned hotel looks stunning. Situated 7 kilometres from Florence in Fiesole it is set within 11 acres of Tuscan Gardens, with gorgeous views of Florence and the Duomo.

The stylish hotel gives the essence of warmth and sophistication. There is a selection of suites available with mezzanine floors and sunken baths. The Villa`s penthouse suit offers a multi-level living space with external plunge pool and a private rooftop terrace with 360 degree views of Fiesole and the city of Florence. My idea of luxury!

In the heart of the terraced gardens you`ll find a first class day spa by Devarana, which offers a variety of ancient eastern practices by skilled Thai therapists. A great place to unwind and forget your worries! The spa also includes a year-round heated and partially covered swimming pool, a fitness centre and a restaurant which acts as a hotel facility and a private members club for locals. A second pool which is by the villa is for guests only.

Let your mind wander as you walk through the gardens where intricate networks of ancient pathways, ancient mosaics and elegant glasshouses take you to a whole new world of beauty. It truly sounds like an amazing hotel experience! A luxurious and memorable environment to visit.

A deluxe room at Il Salviatino will start from 575 Euros – room only.
