Fiesole’s Il Salviatino to Reopen for Season on April 4

(Il Salviatino )

The renaissance villa Il Salviatino is set up to reopen for season on April 4. Originally built as a farmhouse (and later refurbished by some of Florence’s elite families over the years), Il Salviatino is now a 44-room luxury hotel.

Among the highlights is the property’s Affresco Suite, which is centered around an 1886 fresco by Bruschi. This space blends authentic Italian charm with 21st-century technology. The suite also has two oil canvases by Gabriel van der Leeuw and is equipped with an ancient stone bathtub.

What’s new since last season? 

Located on a lush hill, Il Salviatino is home to it an organic orchard, vegetable and herb garden. This spring, the villa launches its “Tuscan Roots” package, inviting guests to join head gardener Lucio in the gardens to learn about ancient techniques still in use throughout Tuscany today. The package includes:

Additionally, the villa has been chosen to partner with the Kaki Tree Project, which, for 20 years, has been “planting seeds of peace and hope around the world.” This spring, Il Salviatino's garden will welcome its own Kaki Tree with a planting ceremony that will be attended by local families and schoolchildren. The tree will blossom in the garden, inspiring guests and visitors to pursue peace and uphold its importance in everyday life.
