Villa Florentine Hotel, Lyon

October 9, 2017 • By

Villa Florentine, Hotel, Relais & Châteaux 5 stars, welcomes you in Lyon for an exceptional stay in the heart of a real haven of peace … Ideally located on the heights of the hill of Fourvière (in the heart of Lyon ), the Relais & Châteaux Villa Florentine offers you a fantastic panorama of Lyon and the historic district of Old Lyon classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Just arrived, we are offered a homemade fruit juice to welcome us. After this little tasting, I am driving to my room with a little explanation on the history of the place which was a chapel. Following several enlargements, it becomes a hotel in the 80s. The room of very good size with a large terrace offers a magnificent view of Lyon from the heights. A Relais & Châteaux excellently placed on Fourvière. Do not wait here for extreme modernity but rather a classicism of good quality.

Le restaurant est de très haut niveau, proposant une cuisine très fine, la qualité du restaurant et du petit déjeuner mais surtout le professionnalisme et la disponibilité du personnel “aux petits oignons” vous feront très certainement sourire pendant tout le séjour.

The terrace, the 28 ° C pool and the 37 ° C jacuzzi, which offer a breathtaking view of the city, are a marvel. The gym is very well equipped.

Because of its panoramic location in Lyon, the paradise of gastronomy, La Villa Florentine is a beacon of well-being and good taste. Comfort of the rooms out of time. Here you are not ordinary guests, you are guests.
