Villa Il Salviatino: A room with a view in Tuscany » Hotel Reviews » Florence - from The Travel Editor .com

Quick one guys. Our most fabulous Antonia Windsor is just back from Florence where she was lucky enough to review Villa Il Salviatino. She's beaten all the Nationals getting her review out there first on

A stunning 15th century villa, this is no ordinary hotel. They literally treat you like royalty, starting by sending a private chauffeur-driven car to pick you up from anywhere in Italy. Owned by hotelier Marcello Pigozzo, Villa Il Salviatino is the result of 3 years of loving restoration and conversion and will open to the public in the next few weeks.

If you visit before May 31 2010, you will be able to have any available suite for the price of a deluxe room - that could be a massive saving of £3,500 a night.

Villa Il Salviatino - you saw it here first!

TheTravelEditor loves Spring

Hello everyone,
Lovely spring weather we're having, isn't it? I've never seen the trees stay in blossom for so long. Apparently it's because the change from Winter to Spring happened as it should've done - slowly and without major temperature fluctuations. We'll see how long it lasts but for now, there's no need to head off to Spain for a Vitamin D hit.

Speaking of Spain, we've been joined by several new subeditors who have been diligently going through TheTravelEditor and making improvements. Check out our new and improved Madrid city guide with plenty of new articles about museums, parks and other great things to do in Spain's capital. One my my favourites is the Top 10 Photo Spots in Madrid.

Also, check out our much improved Paris City Guide, Cape Town City Guide, Barcelona City Guide (with new articles about Gaudi Architecture in Barcelona) and Dublin City Guide.

New on the site are a Tokyo City Guide, Hong Kong City Guide, the beginnings of a Golf Holiday Guide, and in preparation for the FIFA World Cup in South Africa, we've done a great new South Africa Travel Guide, complete with hotel reviews and excursions from all of South Africa's FIFA host cities.

We'd also like to announce our partnership with Black Tomato, a wonderfully hip and cool travel agency who put together completely bespoke, inspirational and unique travel experiences. You'll see them as our booking partner all around the site, from safaris to honeymoons to New Zealand mega holidays. Welcome aboard guys and we're pleased to be working with you.

Next week we'll be talking about Facebook's new plans to take on Google by creating Web 3.0.

Happy travels,
