Sleeping under the stars

 

Overlooking the largest private garden in Europe, with scents of plants and flowers and a blissful quiet and airy, Adastra is the first Mansion in Florence.

Resulting from the collaboration between architect Francesco Maestrelli and Marco and Matteo Perduca, it houses seven rooms on the main floor of the villa and two in the Torrigiani garden Oltrarno, the most authentic Florentine quarter.

Buildings, squares, bridges, museums, churches, theatres, cinemas and shops in the centre are all within walking distance from the residence. AdAstra develops throughout the first floor of the family house, where the main rooms and the splendid hall are surrounded by a magnificent 270 square meter terrace overlooking the garden. The other rooms overlook the typical Via del Campuccio, or are surrounded by greenery of the park in the annex de l’Angiolino. The furnishings combine Italian design from the 50s, 60s’and 70s Florentine tradition with memories of distant lands, original pieces produced by artisans in the city and pop Anglo-American crafts. All rooms have an en-suite bathroom.

With pastel colours and brass lights specially designed by a Florentine workshop, the Superior Room is decorated in silver, gold, glass and historical scarves by Pucci.

The Deluxe Room boasts eclectic decorations including pieces of Italian design from the 50s, 60s and 70s. On libraries stand novels, essays, articles and books from guests’ travels to near and far-away countries. The lighting is produced especially by Florentine artisans of the area.

The Garden Room is an AdAstra gem and features two bedrooms surrounded by the garden in the annex, where the colours are inspired by those of the city and the furnishings come from around the world. Both have an area outdoors with everything you need to fully enjoy these mesmerising surroundings.
