The Locanda Palazzone is a beautiful contradiction in terms. It is considered to be one of the oldest hotels in the whole of Italy, having started off life as a 13th century pilgrim's inn, yet it is also one of the country's most contemporary accomodations with its Scandinavian-style, minimailist design. In short, old world heritage and new world panache. We can also add that this restored medieval "palazzo" is the heart of one of Orvieto's most exclusive wine estates. In fact, it is part of the "Palazzone" winery, one of the region's top quality winemakers. Standing on the top of the hill, the views are of utter beauty and there seems to be nothing giìoing on for miles. This is a very quiet spot indeed, though it does include a fine restaurant, and as befits such a place an extensive and fantastic wine cellar, as well as an outdoor pool. The rest is lush and hilly country surrounding this truly charismatic place to stay.
