La Posta Vecchia * * * * *

Palo Laziale , 55 - Ladispoli - Lazio - Italy

La Posta Vecchia, a stunning 17th century seaside palace, immersed in beautiful Italian gardens and overlooking the Mediterranean sea, offers guests a genuinely luxurious and peaceful retreat, a mere 40 minute drive away from the center of Rome. The villa was built around about 1640 for members of the powerful Orsini dynasty, over remains of the ancient Roman settlement of Alsium. In later centuries the villa served as more humble Carriage House for mail stages travelling up the coast north of Rome, hence the name: La Posta Vecchia.
