Fancy seeing how the Italian nobility live in Florence? Check into AdAstra, the Hôtel Particulier of Florence and you can. Found on the first floor of an aristocratic mansion, an enormous 270 sq metre terrace surrounds the building, overlooking one of the largest private gardens in Europe.
Get a sense of Florentine history at this luxurious boutique stay. Featuring seven grand bedrooms and a main ‘salon’ in the mansion and two more in the Torrigiani garden in Oltrarno – one of the most beautiful and authentic districts in Florence.
Don’t miss the Ponte Vecchio – shops used to be common on bridges like this but this is one of the last examples of this medieval practice.
The delights of ancient Florence are on your doorstep, from famous bridges to the roll call of artisan masters found in the local museums and galleries who once made Florence their home.
The enormous grassed terrace is possibly the best kept secret in Florence. Pop out here to soak up the Italian sun in the afternoon or settle in as evening falls for an aperitif. It will be very hard to leave either way.
AdAstra’s large rooms combine a period mansion feel with bright blocks of colour, Italian mid-century design and quirky pop art touches to create something totally unique that is guaranteed to make you smile.
The main salon is a stunning Baroque style room complete with funky a 1960s bar and cosy places to sit around an open fire, should you need it.
