Medieval Palace (listed here as a 'castle' because there is no category for palace. It is a house/apartment rental, within a palace, from 2 people, to 6, with varying price scale) The palace crowns 1 of the top-100 Italian village beauty spots ("I Borghi Piu Belli d'Italia"). It offers very high quality vacation rentals. Recent renovations guarantee you the newest and finest, stylish, contemporary-within-medieval holiday home experience.

The palace was once home to a silent movie heroine & to a Napoleonic general! Amongst other former famous residents & guests are a French ambassador, an Antarctic Territory governor, and the sole survivor of local Middle Ages witch trials, a noble woman of royal descent! Now you have the chance to holiday in style in their former home, maybe in "The Palace Sanctuary", once part of a convent chapter-house; or in "The Cloisters", formerly a French ambassador's holiday home.

For 2-4 The Cloisters is ideal, with its 3 bedrooms. For 1-2, The Sanctuary is an affordable but special, snug retreat. For more people it is easy - just add them together and you have space for 6 , with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.The citadel of Triora is officially acknowledged as 1-of-the-100 most beautiful that Italy has to offer. It is a marvelous mountain retreat, a romantic escape & an historical holiday spot, yet it is only 35-40 minutes from the sea!

The peaceful location of the palace, Triora, is located above its twin-village, Molini-di-Triora, a borgo consisting of of 23 watermills! Triora itself boasts 3 medieval palaces; the remains of 5 castles; many, many churches & chapels, and it is located above the confluence of 3 river valleys, which meander amidst mountain peaks. It's an ideal & quiet & relaxing spot for contemplation, writing or painting; for mountain walks, river valley strolls; for mountain-biking, climbing; for swimming and bathing in nearby cascading rivers and freshwater pools; for nearby beaches along the Riviera; for visiting the many local historic sites, from neolithic to wartime; and for dining at many excellent local restaurants. Bars and shops are also local.
