Torre di Bellosguardo Florence - Italy

Among the celestial hills of Bellosguardo… where Galileo contemplated the stars...

Ugo Foscolo, Le Grazie, 1812

Welcome to Bellosguardo, a unique property overlooking the magnificent city of Florence, deemed by many to have the "best view" over the jewel of the Renaissance.  

Nestling in the green hills of Florence, the historical Torre di Bellosguardo, an elegant example of Tuscan medieval and renaissance architecture, is a splendid 4 star Hotel.

Surrounded by a wonderful tree-filled park with a breath-taking view of the city, the Hotel Torre di Bellosguardo enjoys an excellent secluded yet

central position, just 10 minutes from the heart of Florence. Furnished with impeccable Tuscan taste, Torre di Bellosguardo offers its guests the privileged feeling of being king or queen of the castle, comfortably settled in a place of rare beauty.

Hotel Torre di Bellosguardo: the ideal place to have an unforgettable holiday in Florence

Hotel Torre di Bellosguardo, a private home until quite recently and still today home to the owners, is an independently run hotel, not belonging to an international chain or brand. During its twenty five years of activity it has proudly defended its philosophy: a charming hotel in which luxury is represented by its silence and tranquility, by the spaciousness of its rooms, by the homely charm of its decor, by the perfumes of its luxuriant garden. Bellosguardo allows its guests to retreat from today's hustle and bustle and hyper-communication, to become contemplative, to smell nature, to perceive beauty and finally wind down. Its concept may appear a bit old fashioned in today’s eagerness to add luxury to luxury, but that indeed is what makes Bellosguardo different. If you enjoy elevator music, insist on squadrons of bellboys in livery and must have a jewelry boutique in the lobby, our hotel is most likely not for you. We strive hard to welcome our guests with a more informal and warm atmosphere. Luxury in Bellosguardo is essential and cosy, a great place for children to savour nature and simplicity and first come into contact with art and history and even cooking, without the distractions of cyber-world to remove them to another planet. Bellosguardo is about slow-life.


Our hotel is the proud and austere guardian of lovingly tended gardens and flowerbeds, orchards and vineyards, olive groves and cypresses. More than a classic 4-star hotel, Torre di Bellosguardo is an authentic example of a Florentine historic residence, far from the noise of the city yet very close to the heart of Florence (which is easily reached by car in 10 minutes).


Torre di Bellosguardo is an ancient historical villa dating back to 1200, when the owner of the tower was the poet Guido Cavalcanti, friend of Dante!
