On the shores of the Lazio coastline

La Posta Vecchia is a hotel with a truly unique essence, preserving its “home” dimension intact. Its interior design reflects the owner’s taste and lifestyle, and its character is deeply rooted in its history. It takes centuries to create, and it cannot be replicated. The location is unparalleled, situated literally on the seashore, caressed by the waves, and surrounded by lush greenery, all just a few kilometres from Rome.

Today, the hotel is part of the Pellicano Group of hotels, owned by the Sciò family, and is under the direct guidance of the young Marie-Louise Sciò, who serves as vice-president and creative director.

With 19 rooms, some of which are truly spectacular suites in terms of size and ambiance, La Posta Vecchia offers a unique experience. My suite featured a massive vintage red porphyry bathtub, coffered ceilings, imperial beds, and antique wood paneling. The other rooms are small havens of intimate hospitality.

The terrace overlooking the sea, with the backdrop of the Odescalchi Castle just a stone’s throw away from the Capital, is a place of delight. On summer evenings, the sunset seen from here is an experience to savour. The terrace also serves as the outdoor seating area for the Cesar Restaurant, where Chef Antonio Magliulo creates Mediterranean cuisine, adapting it to the tastes of an international clientele. The dishes are imbued with fresh flavours, and many of the ingredients come from the hotel’s own organic garden.
