Perched on the Fourvière hillside overlooking the rooftops of Lyon from the Saint-Jean Renaissance quarter, this Italianate villa-hotel was once an 18th-century convent. The 29 spacious guest accommodations are richly decorated with period furnishings, French ceilings, Italian mosaics, traditional fabrics and marble baths. Some have terraces, and most rooms feature beautiful views of the city. The hotel’s panoramic one-star restaurant, Les Terrasses de Lyon, serves gastronomic takes on regional specialties Monday through Saturday. Other amenities include vaulted public lounges, a convivial bar and a breathtaking heated outdoor garden swimming pool and Jacuzzi with city views. The property’s wellness center has a sauna, a hammam, spa treatment rooms and a fitness facility.
