Locanda Palazzone is a stunningly romantic hotel in Orvieto in Umbria. Many guests enjoy their honeymoon here sipping on plenty of Umbrian wine..
The Locanda Palazzone is a beautiful contradiction in terms. The unique Locanda Palazzone is considered to be one of the oldest hotels in the whole of Italy, having started off life as a 13th century pilgrim’s inn, yet it is also one of the country’s most contemporary accommodations with its Scandinavian-style & minimalist design. In short, old world heritage and new world panache. We can also add that this restored medieval “palazzo” is the heart of one of Orvieto’s most exclusive wine estates. In fact, it is part of the “Palazzone” winery, one of the region’s top-quality winemakers. So Long Travel clients will be perfectly situated for a little tipple.
Standing on top of the hill, the views from Locanda Palazzone are one of utter beauty and there seems to be nothing going on for miles. This is a very quiet and relaxing spot indeed, though it does include a fine restaurant, and as befits such a place an extensive and fantastic wine cellar, as well as an outdoor pool. The rest is just lush and hilly countryside surrounding this truly charismatic place.
Behind that ancient stone façade of the romantic Locanda Palazzone, the contrast with the contemporary style suites is really striking and if not for the mullioned windows, the balconies with their stone columns and the views of the estate’s vineyards, this could pass for a modern urban loft. The hardwood floors and simple, primary-coloured modern furnishings show signs of having been redesigned rather later than the 13th century.

We could not have asked for better, the accommodation and architecture truly impressive, the dinner courses an inspiration and simply delicious, the countryside views stunning and the swimming pool big and impressive. We were treated to a tour of the winery which was fascinating and educational and the wines were so good we could not resist ordering three 12 bottle cases!! – Natalie & Sean, NewburyIt’s quiet, relaxing, and you’ll wonder why you’d ever want to leave while you lounge by the pool contemplating the amber hues of an Umbrian sunset. The rooms are clean, well-appointed, and extremely comfortable. We had dinner on the terrace, 4 courses with wines from the locanda vineyards and other nearby areas. – Simone, Ross-Shire
