Together with the re-known Florentine architect Michele Bönan we created the vision for our wonderful collection of hotels, stately retreats and charming villas. The dream was simple: a hotel portraying our personality, our dreams and our emotions whilst leading us to new horizons. A haven in the heart of Italy where one wants to linger and appreciate life to the fullest.
The wonderful Florentine atmosphere of the Lungarno Collection then evolved flawlessly amidst splendid suites, delightful Tuscan and worldly restaurants and an unbeatable vicinity to the masterpieces of art.
Four extraordinary hotels on the river Arno next to Ponte Vecchio, each with its own unmistakable character, yet typically Florentine, reflecting the heritage of Renaissance times and the grandest tradition of craftsmanship.
On the hills of the Chianti region we fell in love with a magnificent sixteenth-century villa, surrounded by the most impressive country side and the scent of antic roses. Our passion for sailing and adventure brought us to the Mediterranean coast, where we found our ideal landing at the Marina di Scarlino, embedded in the transparency of the Tuscan sea.
Finally we arrived in Rome, a stone's throw from the Trinity church, and in the heart of Via Condotti where fashion and creativity meet. Our dream of creating something special above the Ferragamo store came true: a collection of portrait-suites giving homage to the great Italian cinema, enwrapped in light and the beauty of La Dolce Vita.
Thanks to the Lungarno Collection traveling to Italy was never more beautiful.
