Park Hotel Villa Grazioli
A Relais & Chateaux property, the brilliantly restored Park Hotel Villa Grazioli on the outskirts of Rome is protected by the Italian Monument & Art Authorities. This should come as no surprise, given that the 16th-century villa is brimming with 18th-century frescoes, including many created by Giovanni Paolo Pannini and Augusto Ciampelli.
Without compromising its Old World grandeur, the villa's decade-long restoration offers guests all the services and amenities expected of a 21st-century property, such as Internet access, satellite TVs, well-stocked mini-bars and air-conditioning. Guest rooms and suites are perfectly matched in style and design to reflect the villa's ancient architecture and character.
Golfers can tee off at the acclaimed Castelgandolfo Country Club nearby; the surrounding park, with its traditional Italian gardens and its enchanting outdoor swimming pool, is perfect for strolls before or after a day of sightseeing or business.
Dining at Ristorante Acquaviva is a gastronomic delight of fresh, regional cuisine. Four rooms can accommodate 10 to 220 guests for banquets or meetings.
