A collection of contemporary and chic studios just outside Florence, including breakfast, bike hire and a welcome drink

Behind the elegant, modern and award-winning design of Florence's Riva Lofts lies an authentic history that sets it apart as a truly unique place to stay in this magnificent city. What was a small factory in 1880 was transformed into artisans' workshops and, in 1999, became the atelier of architect Claudio Nardi, who developed the whole building into "a home for guests". His eye for aesthetic and simply good design can be seen throughout Riva Lofts' stylish interior.

These chic studio apartments are situated within their own gardens, complete with outdoor swimming pool and superbly located for access to the city. Vintage bicycles are available to hire for free from reception, so you can pedal your way in style along the river and into town in just 10 minutes. Florence is Tuscany's cultural hub, with oodles of beautiful buildings, historic churches and impressive galleries to visit.

Stroll over Florence's oldest bridge, the 14th century Ponte Vecchio and sample real Italian ice-cream at one of the city's gelaterias. Immerse yourself in Renaissance art at the Uffizi or ogle at the impressive architecture of the Duomo before tucking into a traditional Florentine steak. For a lazy night in after a day exploring, snuggle up with a film and a bottle of Italian wine alongside the open fire of Riva Lofts' communal living room.
