There may not be another country residence as unique as the Castle of Relais La Suvera; furnished with precious antiques and paintings, the Relais La Suvera has a character entirely of its own.
La Suvera was opened to the public in 1989 by the noble owners the Marchese Ricci and his wife; the Marchese, an interior-design enthusiast, changes the character of some of the rooms during the winter months when La Suvera closes, adding a personal touch from his extensive collection of antique furniture.
La Suvera is a community of buildings, blending gracefully together; a church, a stable block, an olive press house and the principle edifice, the Papal Villa. Each suite in the Papal house is unique in character and lavishly furnished with precious furniture and works of art, some items deriving from the Marchese's family; strong colours prevail in most of the suites in the Papal Villa giving the guest a sense of living in a rich and noble past. There are also other smaller bedrooms furnished in varying styles in the Olivieri, Scuderia, and Fattoria buildings; all cosy and very comfortable.
Discovering the public halls of La Suvera is a real joy for the antique enthusiast: the Music Hall, the cosy library, The Marquise Campana Hall and the Pope Giulio II Hall, all are furnished with original pieces of antique furniture.
The hotel's serene outside areas offer a sense of privacy: the pretty Italian gardens, the courtyard where the Papal Villa and church meet, even the strolling peacocks add to that sense of tranquil atmosphere; the lovely swimming pool also seems to have found a hidden and tranquil location.
The hotel's restaurant which is situated on the ground floor of the Olivieri building and opposite the main gates of La Suvera offers a refined charm and an excellent menu including organic wines from La Suvera's estate.
