Expert Review

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.

“The lowest rates for Mediterranean cruises can be found in the winter months, when temperatures hover in the 50s and ports are largely crowd-free.”
