Producing one of Umbria’s most celebrated labels, Locanda Palazzone is a mediaeval barn with a modern interior set on a wine-making farm high in the hills above Orvieto. Inside, the architecture jumps a few centuries – a glass-and-iron lift and loft-style living await among the ancient floors, mullioned windows and carved columns. The old stone building is edged with glorious grounds, planted with beds of lavender and roses.
You won’t have to go far to do some wine tasting – you can watch the winemakers at work on-site. There are horse riding, golf and tennis opportunities within an hour of the hotel, and wonderful walking through the chestnut woods behind the property. Sailing fans can hit Lake Bolsena, around 30 minutes from Locanda Palazzone. Explore Signorelli’s famous frescoes in Orvieto’s cathedral.
