A sumptuously decorated hotel on Rome’s Quirinal Hill, Villa Spalletti Trivelli transports you to a bygone age of belle époque luxury. This historic villa has been in the same family for generations, and its aristocratic interiors full of beautiful antiques and works of art are the definition of Italian elegance. Indeed, the furnishings are so spectacular that they have been listed by the Italian heritage ministry. Service is warm and attentive, making you feel as though you are one of the many political and cultural luminaries who have stayed at the villa in its long history.
The hotel serves light meals on the roof terrace, offering simple Italian classics such as salads made with olive oil from the family’s estates in Perugia, sandwiches and homemade gelato. There is a complimentary bar where you can help yourself to a classic spirit, prosecco, or glass of Spalletti Trivelli Pomario wine.
The fourteen rooms are tastefully decorated with quintessential Italian elegance, furnished with both contemporary touches as well as antiques from the family’s private collection. From the exquisite handmade pure linen bedsheets to the marble bathrooms, the rooms are full of sophisticated details. The apartments are particularly spacious, and come with small kitchenettes perfect if you fancy doing your own cooking.
During the warm summer months the villa’s chic rooftop terrace provides a respite from the hustle and bustle of Rome. Enjoy a refreshing drink from the honesty bar, while gazing out over the rooftops, domes and spires of Rome’s historic centre. If you need to fully unwind, take a dip in one of the terrace’s two sunken Jacuzzis. The villa also has picturesque private gardens that are particularly inviting. In the cooler months, sequester yourself away in one of the cosy salons, luxuriously appointed with original furnishings and crackling fireplaces. Bibliophiles will love curling up in the wood-panelled library, which features the original rare book collection of Count Spalletti Trivelli.
The villa’s spa and wellness centre is wonderfully inviting after a day spent exploring the city. Relax in the tepidarium and steam room, or take advantage of one of the bespoke holistic treatments or massages on offer.
The villa is located on the Quirinal hill, one of the original seven hills that the ancient city was built upon and now home to the Palazzo del Quirinale, the impressive home of the Italian head of state. The city’s historic centre is just a short stroll away, with the Trevi Fountain less than ten minutes by foot.
