The rooms and suites


Classic room

The wonderful view of the fragrant citrus garden for your tranquility.


Deluxe room

Furnished in a unique and original way, with luxury finishes and restored period furniture, with desk and armchairs. Some of these have an original fireplace.


Chamber of the Abbess

Ideal for a romantic getaway, it retains its ancient flavor thanks to its structure: a sitting room with fireplace at the entrance and a bed on a mezzanine reachable by the peculiar and ancient stone spiral staircase. The panoramic terrace on the roof of the Palazzo, with exclusive access from the room, gives the final romantic touch.


Junior Suite

One on the first floor of the building, equipped with an original fireplace, and two distributed on the two floors of the ancient Armory, characterized by large and comfortable rooms and embellished with works of art. The elegant and refined furnishings reproduce the splendor of the Palazzo's aristocratic past.



The Ducal Suite is located on the ground floor of the Palazzo and has direct access to the lawn of the pool area, through the small private patio. With two different environments: the living area and the bedroom, characterized by the frescoed ceiling, showing scenes from the legend of San Giorgio.

The other four Suites are located inside the ancient Armory, restored after being brought to light by a careful study of the building and its history.
