Aristocratic Florentine villa in Tuscany, placed on the slope of Fiesole’s elegant hill, offers splendid views of Florence and of Fiesole’s landscape. The Villa was named “The Sfacciata”, in the XX century for its dominant position and its beautiful surrounding gardens and park.

It dates back to Medieval times when, we suppose, it appeared as a 14th century cottage with its pretty farm. The Villa in Florence was transformed into a palace in the 15th century.

Restoration on a grand scale, carried out by the Salviati family, changed the aspect of the villa in Tuscany. The Salviati family remained the proprietor of the villa throughout,the XVI and XVII centuries. The new intervention restored the building to its simple and, at the same time, sumptuous aspect. The walls of white plaster was restored providing contrast to the “pietra serena”, a Tuscany durable grey stone, which stands out from the thresholds and the chimneys. 

The interior was elegantly furnished with an art collection of great value, many beautiful objects contributing harmony to the overall environment. The villa has become one of the most lively cultural salons of the time in Tuscany.

Each room of the villa is individually decorated, respecting the many particularities of the villa and its gardens, all suites and rooms are an elegant blend of local artisanship and the latest technologies. Handmade authentic Tuscan linen, lovingly selected artwork and the finest leathers all add to make each one of these suites and rooms a truly unique experience. A place where luxury has no limit, a stay here is beyond every imagination.

The restaurant Grappolo is a unique vision of gastronomy in hospitality. Based on the roots of Tuscan cuisine and the authenticity of ingredients, you will be able to enjoy multiple interpretations of the same menu as well as the possibility to dine virtually anywhere on property at any time.

Tuscan classics, as taught by and researched with local grandmothers can be tasted on "La Terrazza", with magnificent views of the Dome, whilst in the secluded greenhouse area, "Le Serre" our chef re-interpretates these same dishes in a modern key, enriched by a series of international experiences in some of Europe's finest restaurants.
