(Historical Residences) Orvieto
The history, wine and countryside of Umbria
Three reasons why you'll love it here
- The fabulous wines produced on the estate
- The panoramic pool with view of Orvieto
- An ancient hospitalis, transformed into a modern relais
An imposing period residence, in the countryside just beyond Orvieto, Locanda Palazzone dates back to the 13th century, when it was built as "hospitalis", to accommodate pilgrims on their way to Rome.
Today, after meticulous restoration work, Locanda Palazzone offers guest accommodation in just a few exclusive suites, characterized by a pleasing combination of traditional architectural features, such as mullioned windows and exposed wooden ceiling beams, and stylish contemporary furnishings.
Pool with a view
From the heights of its hill top position, Locanda Palazzone boasts marvelous views over the vine-covered hills of Rocca Ripesana, the Paglia valley and as far as the city of Orvieto, a panorama which can also be admired from the property's attractive swimming pool.
Red or white?
Locanda Palazzone is synonymous with good food and wine. In the estate's vineyards excellent red and white wines are produced, perfect expression of Umbria's great wine making tradition.
During the summer months, the garden and winebar provide charming settings for elegant dinners and wine tastings, during which guests are introduced to the fragrant cuisine and superb wines of Umbria and the neighboring Lazio region.
The Locanda's long list of excursions and guided tours leaves lovers of history, nature and art simply spoilt for choice. Not to be missed: the walk along the Path through the Woods, arguably one of the most beautiful in the whole of Umbria.
