Looking for the perfect location to wed or honeymoon in Florence, Italy? Then look no further than Hotel Il Salviatino. Wow, I mean, wow. The boutique luxury property is tucked into the woods high above the city, overlooking every beautiful turn of the town and of course the dome of the famed Duomo. During a recent trip to Italy I got the chance to experience this property firsthand and I can tell you without a doubt that its outdoor reception location is one of the best on earth and you’ll equally fall in love with the rest of the property, include the hotel rooms that are each as unique and different to one another as your weddings.
The villa property is actually a fairly new one to the hotel business, so you get this wonderful old world feel without a rundown or worn out space. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have nods to history within it! With frescos uncovered on the ceilings from centuries past to stone tubs from ancient eras, you get the best of both the old and new worlds in this beautifully appointed place.
For your wedding, I recommend the courtyard gardens. You can tent the area or enjoy it al fresco as you overlook the lights of Florence. Secret staircases, ancient passageways and other details will delight your guests as they enjoy and explore this property that is rich in history and layers while you enjoy a five star dining and event experience. Oh, and did I mention your event also comes with a dedicated wedding planner on property so no detail will be left undone!?!?
Hotel Il Salviatino has the option of a buyout, allowing you and your guests to take over the entire property and have your run of the place with total privacy! Enjoy the spa by day (do not miss the couples’ room treatments complete with local olive oil blended products), host intimate cocktail parties in one of the greenhouse suites and if the weather permits, enjoy some sun time by the pool after a morning hike through the hills or some shopping in town (complimentary car service to and from will get you the center of town in just a few minutes).
Hotel Il Salviatino is certainly one stop not to miss on an Italian honeymoon or better yet, to call home for your destination wedding in Florence!
