Villa Florentine.

Restaurant of a Grand Chef Relais & Châteaux and hotel in town. France,Lyon

Unique in the world: An exquisitely calm pool and Jacuzzi invite you to a voyage of the senses…

Gilles Cotillard, Maître de Maison, presents the property:

Atop an enchanting hill, the Villa Florentine offers all the spirit and charm of the Italian Renaissance right in the heart of Lyon. The lush green terraces of this 17th century former convent offer exceptional panoramic views of the historical city of Lyon, a Unesco World Heritage site. Period furniture and contemporary works meet harmoniously in the rooms, havens of peace and softness… An exquisitely calm pool and Jacuzzi invite you to a voyage of the senses… In the kitchen Grand Chef Davy Tissot deploys treasures of refinement and reminds your palate of forgotten savours. At nightfall, the sparkling city lights join together with the stars, and this Italian villa becomes even more magical.
