Relais Palazzo Viviani in Montegridolfo, Emilia Romagna, Italy

The beautiful sights and sounds of la dolce vita come to mind when dreaming of a stint in sun-kissed Italy—and there is hardly a better way to experience the country's quaint magnificence than from a medieval castle. Just a few miles from the Adriatic Sea in Valconca Valley, on the border of the Romagna and Marche regions, stands Relais Palazzo Viviani, a stunning fortress that once played residence to the royal family. Surrounded by beautiful gardens and offering spectacular panoramic views of historic sites, small churches and the glimmering sea, Palazzo Viviani (a part of Castello di Montegridolfo) features eight elegant, antique-filled suites that offer a gateway to an authentically luxurious escape.

Spend leisurely afternoons exploring the beauty of the surrounding area, perhaps just taking in the remarkable views as you lounge beside the outdoor pool. Perhaps you will treat yourself to a therapeutic massage or spend some time in the fitness center. Gourmet eaters will love Palazzo's four dining venues, which include Ristoro di Palazzo Viviani, an elegant eatery housed in old wine cellars, Osteria dell-Accademia, serving decadent local cuisine, Grotto dei Gridolfi, offering oven-cooked seafood delicacies, and Piaxxetta del Vecchio Forno, which provides the perfect outdoor venue for enjoying fresh pizza in the summertime. From stunning surroundings, to rich history, to delicious cuisine, savor the timeless splendor of Italy with the sweetest escape to this breathtaking castle.

Only stayed for one night, in September,so lots of things were shut and the pool was cold. The hotel is an interesting place, in a lovely setting and I'm sure in the summer it is a lot better. The room we stayed in was pleasant but it needed decorating,(peeling wall paper) and looked tired. The bed was very comfortable, but as the rooms have wooden floors unfortunately we had people above us who wore shoes until way past midnight, and it marred the quietness and serenity of the place. The breakfast was very nice with a wide choice and friendly staff. I know that we visited this in September so lots of things were closed but it all seemed very tired and lacking in attention.

Thoroughly enjoyed our one night stop over. Beautiful bedroom, lovely breakfast and delicious evening meal. Staff were very helpful and swimming pool was very refreshing. I would certainly recommend a stay here.

Everything I've seen in charming Italian movies contemporary and from the past has materialized here: the palazzo edification, the décor, the facilities, and even lovely affectionate cats were all here waiting for me. It's really really hard to be impartial with this place because it is so gorgeous; I've never been to a place that made me feel I was starring in wonderful Italian movie full of good taste, art, antiquities and history. This is how movie stars (discerning ones) must live! It welcomes you with the medieval construction that does not fail to impress; it is so well-taken care of it will make you wonder of all the people who had taken the same foot steps you are. Staff could not be more friendly; they'll gladly suggest you places for dinner (use gps or you would not find anything) to directions for all the services with big smiles. In your room (we stayed at the most modest one but all are equally magical) no detail has been spared to preserve the charming aura; from the window shutters, to the furniture, to the linen drapes, to the impressive wood beams on the ceiling. It all is impeccably clean too. The pool is nested among large trees and it is surrounded by comandeering views that stretch to the Adriatic sea. Breezes ease the heat irradiated from the stone and brick. At night, a multitude of crickets will lull you to sleep. Walking the bourg is something so fantastic it can't be described with words; you must visit this place and empty your camera: there is not enough memory in a cellphone to capture the beauty, charm, and historic air of this place. Yes! I am drunk with visual beauty and wonder! I don't want to wake up from this dream!

Went there with three children. Beautiful surroundings. Friendly and very hardworking staff. Quiet and serene. Child friendly. Value for money. Would go again. The location in the hills meant that there is some distance to shops and restaurants which was the only negative. There were two local restaurants one which was run by the hotel. Beautiful views down to the Rimini shore. Visited Riccione and the visit only emphasized how perfect we had it in Montegrifoldo. Good for families and also excellent for romantic getaways.

We stayed at the Relais Palazzo Viviani during August 2017 - and it was an amazing experience! We found it through search on different booking platforms and Google Earth, as we wanted something withdrawn from the touristic Rimini area, but still close enough to the beaches. The surroundings are astonishing, the atmosphere is so relaxed and people are friendly. The hotel have english speaking personel, but many people in the 'Castello' only speak Italien - but don't worry, they are very friendly and you will find out all you need to know! The staff at the local restaurant are extremely friendly and we felt very nicely treated. The local 'Street Food' cafe was good and we felt home no matter where we went. The hotel facility are very good, rooms were clean and beds were nicely comfortable (not too soft). There is a small pool which is nice. We would absolutely recommend this hotel/Castello. It is most suited for a nice romantic stay where you just want to relax and enjoy the atmosphere together. We however went as a family and enjoyed it as well. For kids, the place itself may be less interesting after 2-3 days, but fortunately there are so many nice places in the area to visit, and the beaches are within 30 minutes driving distance. We always enjoy experiencing something new, but may return to this fantastic area again :-)
