Relais et Chateaux Villa Florentine
Address: 25, Montee Saint Barthelemy
The Villa Florentine, a converted 17th-century convent, claims 28 Italian Renaissance-style guestrooms and one Michelin-starred restaurant. Each room comes outfitted with standard modern amenities (air conditioning, satellite TV, minibars), and a fitness center, sauna, and steam room are available for guests, but it’s the surrounding grounds that really set the property apart. Retreat to terraced gardens or sip on a summer cocktail at the outdoor pool, which affords panoramic views of Lyon and the Alps in the distance.
