The beauty of a medieval palace, the charm of the place and unique wines welcome you for an exclusive experience. Country House Palazzone was built in medieval times and is located not far from Rocca Ripesena in the area northwest of Orvieto, in Umbria.

This building is an exceptional example of a country residence: it possesses all the characteristics of a town palazzo, even though it stands alone at the top of a hill in the open countryside.

Its architectural structure and construction elements, as well as its ornamental details, can indeed be seen in the most important civic buildings in the town of Orvieto from the late 1200s -such as the Palazzo del Popolo and the Papal Palace- all of which allow us to specify the type and date the building, placing it alongside those similar palaces built in town in the last quarter of the 13th century.

A more intriguing challenge was that of establishing what type of function (other than simply residential) the Country House Palazzone might have had in the area. Historical research has provided some plausible answers to this mystery.

According to the documentation gathered, Monaldo Monaldeschi della Cervara, an Orvieto historian from the noble family that dominated the town in the 14th century, wrote in his Comentari historici, printed in Venice in 1584, that Boniface VIII named “…Teodorico di Ranieri Cardinal and Commander of the Patrimony in the year 1299.

This Cardinal had the Palace built in the square of Santa Christina in Volsena and the Palace below Rocca di Ripeseno…”.

Given its residential-type architecture and its relatively isolated location in the countryside near Orvieto, the Palazzone was very likely built as a hospitalis, or hostel, for prelates and travelers or as a station for pilgrims headed toward Rome, as the first Jubilee was officially proclaimed by Boniface VIII in 1300.

Now the Palazzone is, in Umbria, one of the most evocative Country Houses.

Essential elegance and contemporary comfort. Our suites represent a splendid contrast between their contemporary style and the external walls of volcanic stone.
The view of the vineyards and the great brightness of large and refined spaces characterize the 5 Suites and the 2 Apartments.

The mullioned windows with stone columns and the balconies overlooking the vineyards are integrated into an urban and medieval context at the same time: wooden floors, minimal furnishings, overlooking the Umbrian – Tuscan countryside, all redesigned beyond the 13th century.

The Suites and Apartments are equipped with all the comforts to make your stay exclusive. You will find our Palazzone wines waiting for you in your room, to be tasted in the relaxing atmosphere of the sofas and armchairs of the living area of each suite, admiring the vineyards landscape.

Each suite is heated and conditioned, is equipped with a TV set with satellite channels, wifi, a small safe, a hairdryer, a minibar and a kettle to prepare your favorite herbal teas.

Entering the Cardinal Suite the extraordinary landscape that imposes itself on the view captures the attention, framed between the medieval architectural elements of the three mullioned windows. The gaze sweeps through the Palazzone property at 180 ° and finds no limits in the 65 square meters of the Suite.

The Cardinal Suite welcomes you with an exciting view of the vineyards, the garden with the swimming pool, the chestnut forest that hides our Musco Grotto and the rolling Umbrian Tuscan hills echoed by the breadth and spirituality of the internal space which have inspired the name.

The deep red, cardinal, details and the modern furnishing elements, with the medieval mullioned windows, enrich the living area; the mezzanine where the sleeping area is located duplicates the breadth and warmth of the space for the most exclusive living room.

Romantic and elegant lines for the bright Double Suite, characterized by a large canopy bed in front of the mullioned window. The soft pastel colors of the furnishings match the warm and relaxing tones of the countryside.

The view is boundless on the garden with swimming pool, on the vineyards, on the Umbrian-Tuscan hills and continues up to the chestnut wood where our Musco Grotto is hidden, an Etruscan cave where one of our Orvieto Classico is produced with ancient methods.

The light passing through the noble mullioned window accompanies the warm and relaxing tones of the furnishings with the soft colors of the landscape.

The large living room, illuminated by the light passing throught the mullioned window, a comfortable environment where to spend time with the family, anticipates the two bedrooms of the Family Suite: the master bedroom on the first level, embellished by the detail of the mullioned window, combines the minimal elegance to comfort.

Upstairs, the double room is characterized by relaxing colors and a view of the city of Orvieto. The bathroom is spacious and decorate with soft and relaxing colors to allow total comfort.

The view captures all the most exciting landscapes of the Palazzone property: the large living room overlooks the garden with lawn, swimming pool and the vineyards, the rooms overlook the Umbrian hills and the tuffaceous mass of Orvieto, where the majestic profile of the Duomo stands out.

The Family Suite is perfect for relaxing, tasting the Palazzone wines that await you in the comfort of the living room, in the largeness of its 70 square meters.
