Villa Maïa - French art of living, between detail and the desire to please.

Villa Maïa

5 STARS

Hotel

The historical house with an Italian feel

Villa Maia is perched up on Fourvière hill, with a breath-taking view of the city of Lyon. The Villa has 37 rooms and suites, all elegantly decorated and each with its own private outdoor terrace. Those who appreciate the exceptional things in life will be impressed by the unique 100 m² apartment, with outstanding panoramic view. This ambitious project was brought to life by three men who shared the same vision for beauty and perfection: interior designer Jacques Grange, architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, who is well-known across the globe, and landscape gardener Louis Benech. You can also come and discover the bar and the superb Thermal Baths overlooking the wonderful gardens.

It’s the perfect place to relax and unwind, admire the bar made out of glass from the Saint Just glassworks, creating beautiful effects with light and transparency, and just take the time to savour an almond-flavoured cocktail, the hotel’s speciality, in harmony with the fragrances all around you. Chef Christian Têtedoie was named “Best Craftsman of France”, and he welcomes lovers of fine dining to his restaurant, “Têtedoie”, boasting a Michelin star, and located opposite the hotel. He is always looking for new creations and offers a cuisine filled with emotion, inspired by the seasons and nature.

The French “art de vivre”, even down to the last little detail, and the desire to create a highly pleasurable experience.

Some ideas of where to go near Villa Maia.

Villa Maia is in the historical district of L'Antiquaille, with an exceptional view of the city of Lyon. Admire Mont-Blanc and watch the boats passing by along the Saône and the Rhône. You can take in the wonder of the lights of the city at night from the comfort of your room’s private terrace. We recommend you take a stroll around the surrounding area. The Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière, the Gallo-Roman museum, the ruins of the Ancient Theatre of Fourvière, and many more. Make sure you visit the Maison des Canuts museum, and admire the Fresque des Canuts inside: 1,200 m2 of murals that will plunge you into the traditional atmosphere of Croix-Rousse.

In short, you’ll be able to enjoy a lively city, full of globally renowned traditions, such as fine-dining, silk and cinema, all expressions of the French “art de vivre”.

Rooms

The rooms

Moment of sharing with the History of the city of Lyon by a proximity with the Gallo-Roman theatres and the view of the contemplative garden in this impertinently artistic space. 
Majestic marble and glass partitions meet in these rooms signed Charles Maze.

The suites

From the spacious terrace caressed by the orange reflections of the sun, watch the spectacle of a city that wakes up in the morning, or falls asleep in the evening, slowly covered by the soft dark mantle of the night, allowing the enchantment of Lyon's lights to shine. Spacious and comfortable, the suites imagined by Jacques Grange offer a breathtaking view of this dynamic city.

The apartment

Browse the different spaces of this sumptuous 95m2 suite open on Lyon that it overlooks from the top of the hill. Enjoy an excellent signature cocktail on the splendid terrace attached to your apartment, and let time tell you the beautiful story of these places, a story you never get tired of...


Les Thermes à la Romaine

The ancient vaults revisit the art of the Roman thermal baths. A Pompeian ceiling, walls in plaster vibration rest on important marble columns. To reach the majestic indoor heated swimming pool, 20 meters long, a sublime marble floor, representing a black and white checkerboard.

The Spa also has a Jacuzzi, a hammam, a sauna and a fitness room to fully enjoy this timeless space.
