What city were you born in? Lyon, France – Sebastien Devaud
Villa Florentine is a 5-star hotel that can be found on the Fourvière hillside of Lyon, France, looking out at Cathédrale Saint-Jean-Baptiste specifically. A member of the Relais & Châteaux resort group, Villa Florentine offers unmatched views of the cityscape, including Old Lyon, the city’s historic town which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lyon has been around for two millennia (!!) and visitors can see everything from Roman amphitheaters to Medieval Cathedrals while touring the ancient city center. Originally built as a school for young women in the early 18th century, the building Villa Florentine is housed in is also a part of the vibrant local history, another reason to stay here on your trip to Lyon.Villa Florentine is conveniently within an hour of Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport, in the Rhône-Alpes region of France.
Despite the hotel’s storied history and Italian Renaissance look, everything on the interior is as modern as can be. From the classic rooms to the super-luxe Suite Lumière, the décor of most accommodations is strikingly contemporary, although the Medici Suite is a throwback to Lyon’s history with its traditional furnishings. Each room is different, and rates range between $200-$1375 USD per night. For the finest food and unbeatable views, guests can dine at the exquisite Terrasses de Lyon, the hotel’s Michelin-awarded restaurant. Don’t forget to enjoy a classic hot-stone massage or a Soin Lumière facial at Villa Florentine’s spa during your visit.
