ANTONELLO COLONNA RESORT & SPA
ANTONELLO COLONNA RESORT & SPA is a one-of-a-kind boutique hotel set in a historic region just outside of Rome, deep in the heart of the Castelli Romani. Situated inside the natural park of Labico, the resort is located in the middle of a conglomeration of towns and villages, once a summertime destination of Roman nobles. The resort is the creation of owner Antonello Colonna, a Michelin-starred chef whose family has been influential in the local culinary community since the 19th century. Located on a working farm on an expansive estate within a large nature preserve, the resort feels far removed from the clamor of city life but is under an hour by car from the center of Rome. Amid so much natural beauty, and with hiking, horseback riding, and food markets nearby, this property is the perfect location for visitors to experience the wonders of rural Italian life.
Governed by a markedly modern, minimalist aesthetic, and with just 12 rooms, a stay here is intimate and exclusive. The accommodations are stylish, bright, and comfortable, with excellent views of the surrounding area. Ancient springs that date back to the time of Roman emperors are the inspiration for the resort’s spa, which offers a range of detoxifying services and treatments involving local, natural products. Colonna’s menu changes seasonally and showcases the finest products and flavors of the area. The cuisine is based on historic fare traditional to the region, but is infused with creativity and adapted to a contemporary palate. A curated collection of the area’s best wines adds another dimension of locality to the cuisine.
