Riva Lofts Florence (Tuscany), Italy

“Claudio Nardi's artist studio turned laid-back urban retreat, overlooking the Arno River. The chic lofts exude comfort and bold contemporary design. Vintage-style bicycles are available for whizzing into Florence city centre. Designer chic, a tranquil haven from the hustle bustle.”

“Cool, contemporary Riva Lofts which is nudging the 'luxury' price band, occupies a small complex of 19th-century artisan workshops on the Arno. The heart of the place is the big, open plan living room with its huge stone fireplace where the furniture is an eclectic mix of modern classics and vintage pieces. All but one of the nine suites have kitchens; the best rooms are two enormous, light-infused lofts. There’s a garden with pool, walks along the river and bikes for trips into town. The pool is a huge plus: "amazing to find an outdoor pool, and a lovely one, right in the centre of Florence" one satisfied guest, Katya, told us. ”

They say

“Claudio Nardi and his daughter Alice have decided to meld their variegated experiences, tastes, and life-styles to create a ‘place’ open to other influences as well; a home that is open to modern ‘travelers,’ made of a sensitive mixture of materials, settings, furnishings, of antique objects and contemporary architectural details: a cross-sectional landscape for curious minds.
RIVAlofts consists of 8 studios, each with independent entrance. The studios differ in size from 30 to 100 square meters (300 to 1000 square feet) as well as in form and layout, some with private terraces, others opening directly onto the garden. A few have panoramic views toward the Parco or toward the imposing and elegant Cupola of Brunelleschi.”

Riva Lofts Florence

"A hip, laid-back home-from-home with a house-party feel and a location that is as off-beat as the hotel itself."
