AdAstra Hôtel Particulier, Florence, Italy
Overlooking the largest private garden in Europe, with the fragrance of flowers and plants and a blissful quiet in the air, AdAstra is the Hôtel Particulier of Florence. The result of a collaboration between the architect Francesco Maestrelli and Marco and Matteo Perduca, it is home to seven rooms on the main first floor of the villa, and two immersed in the Torrigiani garden in Oltrarno – the most real and authentic Florentine district.
AdAstra occupies the first floor of the ancestral family mansion, where the main rooms and the splendid salon are surrounded by a magnificent terrace of 270 square metres overlooking the garden. The other rooms line the picturesque Via del Campuccio or are immersed in the green of the annex of the Angiolino. Every room has a different look and feel, each personalised in its own way. The furnishings throughout combine original Italian design pieces from the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s with touches of Florentine tradition flavoured with elements from distant travels, lighting and objects produced by local artisans and craftsmen, alongside a sprinkling of Anglo-American pop. All bedrooms have a roll top baht to complete the individual experience.
