Petite hôtel particulier
Borrow your own ancestral seat by booking a stay at boutique bed and breakfast AdAstra, an aristocratic family residence in Florence, and you’ll have the Marchese for your top-floor neighbour. The 18th-century building overlooks the Torrigiani Gardens, among the most expansive private acreages in Europe, and though access to them is difficult, the views will more than make up for it, especially out on the wraparound terrace. Modern additions include enviable pieces of Italian furniture from the Fifties, Sixties and Seventies, and unusual elements, such as framed Pucci fabrics and an optician’s display cabinet, upon which breakfast is served.
