If you are planning on seeing the beautiful town of Fiuggi, I highly recommend prolonging the elegance and charm of the Italian countryside while staying at Grand Palazzo Della Fonte, the only five star hotel in Fiuggi.
At this exclusive location, you will live like royalty. In fact, the hotel’s most famous guest was the King of Italy, Victor Emmanuel III, who spent holidays here for several years. Other notable guests include Pe, Picasso, Sophia Loren as well as people ranging from politicians, professional football (soccer) stars to The Spice Girls!
Built in 1912, this hotel has remained one of the most sought after spots in the Roman Countryside for the past 90 years. Situated in the middle of an 8-acre park, the hotel, named after the famous fountain, combines the old charm of yesterday’s Italy combined with modern day luxuries. The generously oversized rooms are all in the “Liberty Style”, delicately decorated with colorful floral designs that miraculously manage to bring the splendor of Fiuggi’s incredible landscape right into your room.
The bathrooms combine old world charm with contemporary fixtures, great showers, thick terry bathrobes, hair dryers, makeup mirrors and complimentary Hermes toiletries. If the healing water of Fiuggi doesn’t replenish you, these cushy accommodations are bound to leave you with a feeling of rejuvenation.
There is no doubt that meandering around the Roman Countryside can ware you out. If you’re feeling guilty for your time spent eating Italy’s delicious cuisine, you can make up for it at the state of the art gym at the Palazzo. For me, there is no better reward for a long day of exploration than some well spent time at the Medical Beauty Center at the Palazzo. Here, you will enjoy the most advanced beauty treatments with the comfort and luxury that characterizes the hotel. This newly renovated facility includes various types of massages, including shiatsu and the highly requested stone therapy.
The sun worshippers spend their down time at the fabulous outdoor pool, while those who would rather hide from the rays may enjoy the heated indoor pool, open year round. If that doesn’t fill your appetite for relaxation, then the gorgeous, large, Jacuzzi should do the trick.
The Palazzo provides the ultimate Italian experience, so it is no surprise that their menu selections offer the finest in Italian cuisine. Mangia mangia, after all, you are on vacation! Sample their delicious menu in the dining room, or for a more intimate dining experience, there is always room service. Whatever you do, don’t miss out on an espresso or cappuccino, a popular Italian invention.
I know that the Palazzo sound like heaven on earth, but should you have the desire to get out and see the sights, the Palazzo will take you in one of their cars to see the local attractions. There is one important aspect that should never be neglected. The shopping! The Palazzo offers a shuttle service to the shopping district in Rome, which speaks for itself.
The Grand Hotel Palazzo Dell Fonte is a member of The Leading Hotels of The World, and speaking from experience, it far exceeds the criteria for the most ultimate in luxury accommodations.
