LA POSTA VECCHIA
LA POSTA VECCHIA is an elegant, 19 suite, five star luxury hotel located in Palo Laziale ( Roma) in the heart of a natural reserve, offering a breathtaking panorama of the Tyrrhenian Sea, a heated-indoor pool and a Health & Beauty Club, as well as fine dining at its Michelin-starred restaurant, The Cesar. This unique, 17th century establishment is built on the excavated ruins of a Roman villa of the second century BC, that is now open to the guests visiting.
A blend of new and old, the hotel boasts an exclusive 18th century de´cor, complete with furniture and elaborate tapestries, combined with every modern comfort, a security system and amenity, making it one of the most prestigious hotels in Italy 40-minute drive from Rome’s city center. From the Master Suites to the Superior doubles, every room is spacious, with Renaissance furnishings, paintings and antique tapestries, white or pink baths and brass fittings. Every single object expresses sober elegance, and the atmosphere of this private villa, with its incredible views of the sea and the gardens, creates a sense of genuine tranquillity. 2 Master Deluxe Suites, 3 Senior Suites and 3 Junior Suites have sea views or overlook the lovingly maintained gardens. The hotel tower rooms have impressive vantage points and can also accommodate families.
Each of LA POSTA VECCHIA's 19 bedrooms is named after an illustrious guest who has resided here since the 1600s.
THE CESAR RESTAURANT 1 MICHELIN
The elegant dining room, The Cesar Restaurant, is no longer a secret. Since chef Michelino Gioia earned The Cesar 1 Michelin, the restaurant has been attracting an increasing number of diners who drive out from Rome – the terrace is a privileged spot for refined Roman cuisine dining. Vegetarian and gluten-free dishes are always options on the menu.
For Michelino Gioia, every day is a new adventure in the creation of exciting, genuine and strictly seasonal food. The majority of the fruit and vegetables served in the restaurant is grown in the hotel’s own organic garden; the remaining ingredients come from the finest independent local suppliers; and everything served and delivered to room or table - down to the bread, pastries, and even the jams and the condiments - is expertly made by Michelino Gioia and his team. LA POSTA VECCHIA, with the nearby Castello Odescalchi garden, is a green oasis in which to breathe in the clean air and rediscover nature’s splendour. This alone is sufficient to recharge and relax. But to make your stay even more special, the LPV Health & Beauty for beauty and wellness opens its door to guest who wish a further invigorating dip.
The LPV Health & Beauty, conveniently located by the covered swimming pool, uses signature products by Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella and, with a holistic approach, offers treatments that combine the classic medicine with the alternative and most recent therapies.
The Beuty list offers a very rich range of treatments gii`oing from scrubs, to gently remove dead skin cells and reactivate the circulation, anti-aging treatments for the face and body, relaxation, detox, revitalising and couple massages, to manicure or pedicure to finish off. All of these treatments use products produced by Antica Farmacia Santa Maria Novella of Florence, which has been producing cosmetics, perfumes and ointments for health and wellness for four hundred years. To purify the body and mind deep down, the calidarium, a steam room, where staff remove dead skin cells using a horsehair glove, easing away physical fatigue and mental stress, is the best option.
LA POSTA VECCHIA is the ideal location for a romantic te^te-a`-te^te dinner, either in the gazebo overlooking the sea or at the hotel’s own museum of Ancient Roman artefacts. Italian food-lovers mustn’t pass up the chance to take a morning’s cookery course and learn the secrets behind one of the day's dishes. Private Dining for 2-10 people in the Gazebo Garden or alone in the hotel museum can be arranged upon request.
