Fodor's Expert Review Locanda Palazzone

Località Rocca Ripesena 68, Orvieto, Umbria, 05018, Italy Fodor's Choice

Spending the night in this 13th-century building just 5 km (3 miles) northwest of Orvieto is like staying in a sophisticated country home, with vineyard views, a private chef, and two-level rooms with modern furnishings. Guests can relax in the comfy sofas surrounding the fireplace in the lounge, or go for a dip in the pool tucked amongst the grapevines. Each night, the in-house chef whips up a four-course menu paired with wines from the Palazzone vineyards. The charming hosts ensure that guests' itineraries are packed with interesting activities—or that they just have time to chill, if they so desire.
