Villa Florentine, the spirit of the Italian Renaissance in the heart of Lyon
The splendid Villa Florentine built in the 17th century dominates the city from its vantage position on the Hill of Fourvière and has the old Renaissance district, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, lying at its base. The seemingly perched location of the hotel offers an unrivalled setting and a dramatic, sweeping view over the city, the Saône and Rhône Rivers and on a clear day, the Alps beyond.
Artfully lit, the Villa Florentine is stylishly decorated with fine modern paintings, hanging silks - Lyon is Europe's silk capital - frescoes, painted ceilings, chandeliers and stylish modern furniture. You will discover a harmonious marriage of the authentic Italian renaissance structure and present day modern comfort.
The Villa Florentine proposes 28 rooms and suites, all attractive with modern furnishings and traditional fabrics. The Villa Florentine offers a wide range of wellness equipments such as outdoor panoramic heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi, a sauna, a steam room, a fitness room and a beauty centre.
The hotel also provides relaxing or invigorating treatments and massages carried out by highly skilled beauticians.
