A lovely hotel based around a fifteenth century building, set in its own parkland, in the hills of Fiesole above Florence. This hotel is excellently managed and staffed and my husband and I much preferred it to its well-established rival just up the hill behind it, primarily because here the staff extend the warmest of welcomes to all guests, not just to the celebrities. How wonderful it was to look down on the Duomo in the sunshine and then gaze at that view later in from the restaurant terrace by moonlight. The team of service ambassadors and others could not have tried harder to help us with all our needs - they were always smiling, ready and willing to assist. Delightful, long breakfasts on the terrace, days lounging by the pool(s), a very charming Italian garden in which to enjoy an aperitif, followed by a good dinner on that peaceful terrace. And if you want to see the city then take the regular quick and free shuttle bus into the centre and take in all the sights before escaping back to the fresher air of Fiesole.
