Villa Florentine, Lyon

Hotel. Located at the top of old Lyon, impressive views of the city and country are one of many reasons to stop at Villa Florentine. The Renaissance appeal stems from the traditionally designed guest rooms and buildings all of which are comfortable and refined. The swimming pool’s tranquil ambiance is the perfect setting to overlook Lyon. Even at night, sitting on the patio is the best location for surveying the twinkling lights below. The four-star charmer has every luxury and amenity needed for a comfortable and elegant stay.

Wine. Villa Florentine sits between the famed wine regions of Beaujolais in the North and the Côtes du Rhône region in the South giving the hotel access to hundreds of prominent labels. Lyon’s reputation for gastronomy comes from the leading chefs of the world and their ability to craft food that pairs well with French wines. Villa Florentine’s sommelier compiled a cellar and wine list of the best labels and vintages.

Dining. Take in all the savory flavors of “Les Terrasses de Lyon’s” cuisine either in the dining room or outside under the stars of the sky and over the city lights. The gastronomy of Lyon captures all of the refined and splendid factors of cooking, and Villa Floretine’s restaurant does not stray from this reputation.
