Benvenuti a casa
“Home” for Italians has a very strong meaning. It means haven, comfort, pleasure, friends, family, and peace.
When I designed our boutique hotel, I had those meanings in mind.
I put care and passion in all the details, as it was my home. The warmth of the lights, the peculiarity of each single ornament, the fabric of the sofas, the texture of the pillows.
I laid on each single bed, I paused on each single chair, looking outside and around, admiring the ceiling, contemplating the incomparable beauty of each single room. I wanted the history of the place to talk to me, to tell me its history, the incredible amount of people who walked on those floors before me.
Our Palazzotto has its own ancient history, hundreds of years of untold stories.
I tried to restore it respecting its glorious past, trying to interfere as less as possible with its original beauty whilst exploiting its uniqueness and peculiarity. I tried to make it my home.
I hope our hotel can inspire you with its history, culture, wine and beauty.
Most importantly, I hope you can really feel at Home.
