We’ve been staying at the Villa San Michele in Fiesole, a 600 year old former Renaissance Monastery designed by Michelangelo and where Leonardo Da Vinci first tested his flying machine – for 20 years now. We’ve visited almost every year to enjoy the sensational Tuscan woodlands and gardens and to reconnect with our old friends there – Paulo, Adriano and Silvestro who are all maturing superbly – just like the Villa’s wine cellar.
Overlooking Florence, San Michele has been tastefully – and quietly – upgraded during Covid. Check it out on: Villa San Michele. A great way to enjoy the bustle of Florence and then relax in the tranquil beauty of San Michele – a 30 minute shuttle – and a world – apart.
