An urban cocoon

A few years back, the Maïa Group launched a new concept in luxury hotels. The Antiquaille district on Lyon’s Fourvière hillside is the happy host of Villa Maïa.

Work on Villa Maïa began across from the famous restaurant run by Christian Têtedois, on the site of the old Antiquaille Hospital.

An ideal location on the hills over Lyon

Tucked away on Lyon’s city heights, the 5-star hotel Villa Maïa offers luxury amenities personified by one of the most fashionable designers these days: Jacques Grange.

The establishment’s resolutely contemporary architecture in no way dismisses the ancestral signs of the old Antiquaille site. The particularly well-planned layout designed by Jean-Michel Wilmotte gives the hotel extraordinary views, including a breathtaking view of the city. © CamilleMoirenc

37 rooms, including seven suites and one apartment in a Japanese spirit, a modern bar that encourage contemplation of the garden and the unbeatable view of Lyon, a bathing area with a 20 metre swimming pool, a Pompeian ceiling and marble columns, plus a lounge where intimacy and luxury intermingle: all this and more is promised by the Villa Maïa hotel concept.

Mission accomplished for this contemporary architecture including precious materials and works of art which fit perfectly into this 5-star establishment.

Contribution from Maison Rouveure Marquez

Our ornamental plasterers had the pleasure of collaborating on this project with the production and installation of the Pompeian fibrous plaster ceiling in the Roman bath-style spa, columns in the restaurant, bar and lobby and decorative fibrous plaster elements in the entrance hall.
