Il Salviatino is a unique property, an aristocratic Florentine villa, with a personality we had to protect. During the restoration, the Villa revealed so many surprises: extraordinary frescoes hidden underneath a false ceiling, a sarcophagus belonging to a previous owner born again as a spectacular bath in a guest suite and an intricate network of old pathways through the estate buried for years by the undergrowth. Each step has been an exciting and breathtaking journey.
Throughout the project, we endeavored to maintain the integrity of the Villa and to be true to its history. We relied heavily on local artisans and watched with fascination the painstaking processes of washing and replacing centuries-old mosaics, the re-paneling of the old library and the careful restoration of glass houses which have been empty for decades.
We believe in creating a truly unforgettable experience. The addition of Service Ambassadors to cater for guest’s every whim from beginning to end will be an integral part of the experience. We understand not only how impactful first and last days can be but also the days’ in-between…
Our guests know who they are, what they want and what they don’t want. They’ re culturally aware, passionate and sophisticated. We will offer them a taste of something quite different and forever memorable.
Now the Villa has been restored to its original splendor and we hope it reflects our ceaseless passion for art, history and beautiful things but most importantly a warmth and hospitality for which we in Italy are well known.
