Palazzo Lantieri

Bed & Breakfast

Historic, indulgent, atmospheric – and the Contessa is so warm. Vineyards, restaurants, operas, walks...La dolce vita on Slovenia's border


5 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 4


In Gorizia, through an archway off a beautiful piazza, you pull up into a courtyard of luscious lawns and elegant palms. This 14th-century palazzo may have grand proportions, but the immediate feel is of an affectionately tended home. The amiable Contessa guides you past chandeliers and fresh flowers, broad stone staircases and miles of herringbone parquet to two light-filled bedrooms, each intended to delight. Wooden floors creak charmingly, sunlight floods in through soft white curtains, and bathrooms ooze thick fluffy towels and indulgent luxury: just bliss. ‘La dolce vita’ surrounds you here, with vineyards and good restaurants to visit, country walks to build up your appetite and operas and Roman history to quench cultural thirst. Do explore the palazzo’s Persian-style garden and ask the Contessa for a guided tour of the hand-drawn frescoes, the modern art and the memorabilia. Elegant, atmospheric Lantieri: Napoleon, Schiller and Casanova all stayed here – and wrote about it; but as you rest in the garden listening to birdsong, you will think yourself the only one to have discovered this Italian jewel.

My wife and I were celebrating our Golden Wedding Anniversary and Carolina and her husband, Nicolo were an absolute delight, welcoming us into their wonderful home, almost as one of their family. They both made our stay so enjoyable and memorable, we couldn't have wished for anything better, on such a special occasion for my wife and I. A really big thank you from us both, you gave us such special memories, which we shall always treasure.

We had a lovely week's stay in a charming and historical apartment with very personalized and most gracious assistance from Carolina Lantieri in helping plan our day's activities. Breakfasts were generous and scrumptious...old world charm mixed with modern day needs. Highly recommended
