Beautiful little Palace

5 of 5
This beautiful and stylishly appointed property has all the proportions of a little palace. It is remarkably situated next to St Giorgio church with the drawing room balcony overlooking the steps, which during our stay provided significant interest. There are two outside terraces for dining and lounging. The bedrooms are very comfortable and there are two high quality shower rooms. Hall leads to a magnificent staircase with kitchen off. Kitchen was very cool-useful in high summer I'm sure-but actually a little cold for us. Kitchen had a good range of eguipment. Position is 260 steps up from the main street (Corso Umberto) but parking very close was easy. Local restaurants both down and up the hill were very interesting and easy. Very stylish! We will come again.
