Perfectly placed for a short break, only 30 minutes drive from Rome Fiumicino airport, La Posta Vecchia enchants our experienced weekend traveller, Ann Jurk…
La Posta Vecchia, Palo Laziale
|Sunbeds by the sea in a historical hotel near Rome.|
If you would like to combine vibrant Rome with a classy, quiet country experience, La Posta Vecchia is perfect - and right by the ocean. Flying with SAS to Rome took only 3 hours and the drive to La Posta Vecchia only 30 minutes.
It is a beautiful drive through the gardens to reach this charming 17th century hotel. La Posta Vecchia used to be an outbuilding of the castle. Sitting on the terrace you have a view both over the sea and the old castle.
In the 1960s Paul Getty transformed the villa to his seaside home. During this time, because of restoration,a Roman Villa was discovered, and you can enjoy reading about and seeing part of this history in the hotel museum. For special occasions you can have a private dinner in the museum. You can also stay in the “Getty Suite”, which is amazing...

It feels more like staying in a historical private home than a hotel. La Posta Vecchia has 19 rooms. All room categories can be recommended. They are all spacious and they are all very charming. Even the one with garden view can be warmly recommended.
I stayed in a Superior de Luxe Room with enormous windows and a gorgeous sea view.
I only stayed one night at La Posta Vecchia so of course I took the opportunity to have dinner at The Cesar, La Posta Vecchia’s gourmet restaurant (one Michelin star). I had the traditional Tuscany tasting menu and really enjoyed it.

Before dinner I had a swim in the inside pool and a few hours in a sunbed on the terrace.

After a lovely breakfast I continued my trip to sister hotel Il Pellicano.
