In the 14th century, the noble Florentine Salviati family built a sumptuous country villa on Florence's northeastern outskirts. In 2010, after two years of renovations that revealed long-lost frescoes on the ceilings and hidden pathways twisting through the gardens, Marcello Pigozzo re-opened the villa as a hotel. The 45 accommodations are exquisitely appointed with Tuscan linens, original art, and timeless modern furnishings designed not to detract from the Renaissance surroundings. Il Salviatino manages to be away from it all—rising just high enough up the foothills climbing toward Fiesole to enjoy a skyline view—yet convenient to the sights downtown (via a short taxi ride or brief stroll to a city bus stop). The property also features a split-level pool, two restaurants serving classic Tuscan cuisine, and Italy's only Devarana spa.
