Reviews for Relais Palazzo Viviani
Montegridolfo is a small village in Emelia- Romana region that is dominated by the medieval castle. The castle is more or less a village inside the walls of the castle with restaurants and private dwellings as well as the hotel. We were allocated a self contained apartment, but there were rooms as well inthe hotel where other guests were accommodated. Breakfast was offered in an anex to the main hotel building. The hotel held functions such as wedding receptions in this anex. While staying we had dinner in a restaurant run independantly of the hotel. In season there is a choice of restaurants. As well in the courtyard near the main gate the hotel offered a bar. If you are staying here out of season check with the hotel what restaurants are open. Parking was fine in the street outside the main gate and we were collected and transported on a small cart with our luggage to our apartment.

We stayed with friends and family for our Italian wedding a week at Palazzo Viviani. What a unique romantic atmosphere. The view was fabulous. The staff had a great hospitality and was very friendly. The breakfast buffet and dinner were very tasteful. A lot of choices on the menu. We stayed in an appartment for a few days and a suite. Authentic and romantic elements were in every room. The swimming pool was big enough and the overview from the pool was beautiful. Around the Palazzo it was very quiet and we loved the feeling of privacy. Nearby the castle there is lot to see and go to. For example the sea, Urbino, restaurants and other small typical Italian villages. The Palazzo is certainly a place to go back to.

Great location with perfect service! Beautiful surroundings, amazing views and just stunning place to be! The rooms are spacious and the service at the reception was very welcoming. Weddings are held here to have unforgettable moments. Classy place!
My husband and I stayed here after a trip up to Rimini for work. It was an oasis of relaxation, nature and good food. The views are absolutely incredible, the staff is lovely and the castle is breathtaking. It was total relaxation for us, as we went during what seems to be low season so there were not a lot of people. We really enjoyed it and highly recommend stopping here for a night or two.
