The “Antico Granaione” is a Medieval granary (a grancia) that still preserves its beauty. The refurbishment has maintained the original structure of the palace: travertine, Tuscan terracotta for flooring, antique wooden beams embellish our recently renovated B&B
The "grancia" was a fortified farm that grew up in the place where, in medieval times, a hospice offered lodging to travellers following the Via Francigena towards Rome.
It was a centre for the storage of grain and of all the agricultural production necessary for the hospital's activity. The courtyard, that precedes the palace and leads to the main entrance, is surrounded by magnificent Medieval walls and embellished by an antique well.
The B&B consists of eight rooms, a large central hall where breakfast is taken and where guests can appreciate our typical recipes, a relax area with sofas, piano, books, board games, TV.
The refurbishment has maintained the original travertine, terracotta for the flooring and ancient wooden beams to highlight the architectural value of the palace.
Rooms are bright, inviting, they have been completely renovated, furnished with taste, simplicity and great attention to details of decorations. We have chosen for the inner spaces the colours of nature: Orange, Cherry, Mint, Wisteria, Sage, Sunflower, Lavender, Poppy. Each room reminds of a flower, a fruit tree or an aromatic plant. All bedrooms open up to a very large hallway that assures quietness, they feature private entrance and private bathroom with shower.
