FLORENCE - TUSCANY
CATEGORY - BOUTIQUE HOTELS
Overlooking the largest private garden in Europe just a 10 minute walk from the centre of Florence, the fragrance of plants and a blissful quiet fills the air at AdAstra. The result of a collaboration between the architect Francesco Maestrelli, with interior design by Matteo Perduca and his brother Marco, it is home to 14 rooms in the Oltrarno area south of the Arno river – the most artisanal and authentic Florentine district. Squares, museums, churches, shops and restaurants are all at a walking distance from this secret hideaway beyond the busy tourist streets.
INFO ABOUT THE ROOMS
Every room has a different look and feel, each personalised in its own way. All bedrooms have a roll top bath to complete the quirky and individual experience.
Rooms vary in décor, size and views from the windows – four open up directly onto the wraparound terrace, some on the second floor have garden views, others overlook the quiet Via del Campuccio whilst two are immersed inside the garden. All rooms are stocked with a kettle and espresso machine, DVD player, HD TV, free wi –fi and C.O. Bigelow bath products and slippers. All rooms have freestanding bathtubs in the bedroom as well as showers in the bathroom.
INFO ABOUT THE AMENITIES
The hidden Torrigiani garden in the heart of Florence is the largest privately owned garden in Europe situated within city boundaries. Renowned in the 16th century as a botanical garden it had a revival in the early 19th century when the Marquis Pietro Torrigiani inherited the property and built a neo-gothic tower in the garden as an observatory to study the heavens. This inspired the name AdAstra which in Latin means “to the stars”. The current Marquis still lives on the ground floor of the mansion, whilst AdAstra extends over the first and second floors where the main salon still retains the original wooden parquet flooring, ceiling frescoes and chandelier.
