    Our opinion

    La Posta Vecchia is one of the most luxurious hotels in Italy.

    Hotel description

    Bought in the 1960s by John Paul Getty, La Posta Vecchia was restored over a period of almost five years. During the process of restoration previously undiscovered Roman villas were found and the mosaics and objects unearthed are today displayed in the substantial private museum at La Posta Vecchia. Over the years Getty acquired magnificent antiques and works of art and these items were left in place when the villa became a luxury hotel in 1990. La Posta Vecchia stands right on the Mediterranean sea front in six acres of its own spacious and verdant gardens. The hotel today is exquisitely cosy with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. There are two ground floor lounges with open fire places and views of the sea just beyond the windows. Outside is a terrace where lunch is served, almost directly on the sea. There is also an extremely elegant restaurant and breakfast room. There are just nineteen luxuriously furnished rooms which vary in size and are each individually decorated. The service here at La Posta Vecchia is personalised with the hotel being able to arrange private visits to local vineyards, private cookery classes and visits to places of interest nearby. Perfect for a long weekend, short break or as part of a touring holiday.
