than an hour from Rome and perched on a hilltop in the tranquil
countryside, the Grand Hotel Palazzo Della Fonte features one of Italy's
premier health and beauty centres. Everything has been planned to
restore the hotel to its turn-of-the-century splendour, combining the
elegance of yesteryear with a host of modern comforts. Today, with its "liberty"
façade's frescos sparkling anew, with the harmony and elegance of
its ambiences and the enchantment of its pool, the Grand Hotel Palazzo
della Fonte is experiencing of its best seasons ever, enhanced by the
most up to date technology in comfort.
Inmersed in the peace and quite of a lush secular park, the hotel makes
sure that its 153 rooms and suites receive mother's nature best:
sunlight, clean fresh air and silence. When Lord Charles Forte,
originally from this area himself, bought and restructured the hotel, he
did so wanting to evoke the charm of an English country manor: floral
designs in soft pastel hues, antique furnishings and huge bathrooms all
in Carrara marble. All Palazzo guests can enjoy the splendid views of
the medieval fortress, swimming pool, park and surrounding hills. Many
rooms and suites have beautiful and romantic canopy beds, others have
terraces with lounge chairs and tables where one can enjoy breakfast out
in the open.
The hotel's solid culinary tradition proudly boasts the inheritance of
world famous chef, Luigi Carnacina, chef of the Palazzo's kitchens while
at the beggining of a magnificent career. Today, Francesco Marino, the
Executive chef at Ristorante Savoia, has carried on with the tradition
of high quality cooking, proposing mediterranean specialities with
creative expertise and local ingredients. Even more, assisted by the
Medical Beauty Center's experts, Chef Francesco Marino also supervises
guest's personalised diets!
Last but not least, the hotel has a wide variety of sports activities,
and there is an 18-hole golf course within three minutes of the hotel as
well as a children's playground.
