A love den set in the beating heart of Italy.
This is the essence of Relais Castelluccio Palusse, an exclusive noble residence immersed in the marvelous setting of the gentle hills that embrace Città della Pieve. A compelling story, that of Castelluccio Palusse, made of love, passion, infidelity and that intertwines with the private life events of the Savoy family.
Castelluccio Palusse was built at the end of the nineteenth century by the will of Vittoria Guerrieri, the daughter that Vittorio Emanuele II had from the tumultuous and intense relationship that the King of Italy had with his historical lover Rosa Vercellana, known by all as the Bela Rosin.
Vittoria, who by the will of her father had married the Marquis Filippo Spinola, in 1885 fled near Città della Pieve with her lover Paolo De Simone, 12 years younger. In the countryside of the beautiful Umbrian town, the illegitimate daughter of Vittorio Emanuele II had a small neo-Gothic castle built, which she named Castelluccio Palusse, the nickname of her companion.
Here she began to breed horses and cultivate exotic plants, laying the foundations for a colossal financial crash, which happened exactly a few years later.
Today, after years of neglect, thanks to the new owner’s tenacity and love for the beauty, Castelluccio Palusse has been transformed into an exclusive hotel residence, which in an entirely new form returns intact to its guests the romantic and sensual allure of its fascinating history.
The 7 rooms, reminiscent of the loves and passions of Vittoria reflecting the splendor of the history lived by the residence Castelluccio Palusse, leave the guests breathless for the elegance, class and uniqueness that distinguish them.
From the spectacular Torretta, two-story suite with private roof garden, four-poster bed and Jacuzzi, to the languid Bela Rosin, from where you can enjoy an incomparable view of Lake Trasimeno. Passing through the Piemontesina, in imposing baroque style, up to the seductive Vittoria, with a violet-colored canopy bed that re-proposes geometric and floral decorations on the ceilings.
Outdoors, a wonderful park of 6000 square meters populated by lime trees, horse chestnuts, rare domestic pines, cedars of Lebanon and other flowers and plants inherited by Vittoria. Castelluccio Palusse has a recently built outdoor pool to cheer its guests on hot summer days with an area equipped with sunbeds and chaises longues for relaxing sunbathing.
An oasis of peace to restore body and soul, thanks also to the presence of an exclusive Wellness Center with Finnish sauna, Turkish bath, hydromassage, emotional shower, relaxation area and herbal tea corner. A real gem is even the small and refined restaurant, which offers genuine dishes of the Umbrian culinary tradition with a menu that strictly follows the seasonal production.
Over everything we find the attention, the care and the warm welcome of a caring and qualified staff, that never fails to make the guest feel at home, putting them at the center of attention to fulfill their every wish.
