Best for aesthetes


This riverside developmen­t, originally used as a factory then as artisan workshops, was converted into an urban retreat by Florentine architect Claudio Nardi. You’ll find it on the Oltrarno side of the water, a 30-minute walk from the Ponte Vecchio. The interiors are spectacula­r, with floating staircases, exposedbri­ck walls and upcycled furniture (case in point: wardrobes made from old trunks). The poolside Jardin La Ménagère restaurant, headed up by renowned chef Erez Ohayon, offers two tasting menus.

ROOMS: From €90 (£77), B&B.
