The Experience

In Gorizia, through an archway off a beautiful piazza, you pull up into a courtyard of luscious lawns and elegant palms. This 14th-century palazzo may have grand proportions, but the immediate feel is of an affectionately tended home. The amiable Contessa guides you past chandeliers and fresh flowers, broad stone staircases and miles of herringbone parquet to two light-filled bedrooms, each intended to delight. Wooden floors creak charmingly, sunlight floods in through soft white curtains, and bathrooms ooze thick fluffy towels and indulgent luxury: just bliss. ‘La dolce vita’ surrounds you here, with vineyards and good restaurants to visit, country walks to build up your appetite and operas and Roman history to quench cultural thirst. Do explore the palazzo’s Persian-style garden and ask the Contessa for a guided tour of the hand-drawn frescoes, the modern art and the memorabilia. Elegant, atmospheric Lantieri: Napoleon, Schiller and Casanova all stayed here – and wrote about it; but as you rest in the garden listening to birdsong, you will think yourself the only one to have discovered this Italian jewel.

Booking information

Restaurant within walking distance.


On our tour of Friuli we stopped at Palazzo Lantieri. We were personally welcomed by the hostess and her open and warm nature made us feel that we had known her for a long time. You enter the premises and feel like you're travelling through time, into the past. The view into the garden completes the ambience. The breakfast table was very lovingly and stylishly set. With freshly harvested fruit from the garden, as well as delicious home-made jams and the best croissants and coffee. We were happy to accept the offer to have a tour of the historic Palazzo and Park after breakfast.The stay was for us a highlight of our trip which we will remember for a long time and we absolutely want to repeat.

Great experience. History all around, attentive hosts, breakfast like you have never had before, pretty town, gateway to the Collio Goriziano wine production area of Friulia and Slovenia. Nice ristorante. Convenient for walking or cycling. Accommodation amazing for history, presentation and comfort.

Palazzo Lantieri is the best and most beautiful accommodation in Friuli. This is mainly due to the charming Contessa Carolina who made each of our visits so special. Thank you very much!

Manuel, Munich

Descrete building from outside - surprising historical and familiar world inside the walls. Perfect location with several restaurants and bars around. Styling and hospitality were to our best attention - even with own breakfast room with homemade jam and view to the garden, were Carolina grows own vegetables and fruits. Lovely interieur details - mixed with modern art all over. As also the city is very interesting in many aspects we absolutely recommend a minimum of a 2 days stay.


Palazzo Lantieri is an extraordinary interesting, historical place to stay. The warm welcome, friendly staff and helpful advice given by the Countess on places to visit made for an unforgettable holiday

Margaret & Gary

We really enjoyed the days spent at your house. We like to remember the cordial nature of Contessa and the open exchange of ideas during our first visit was a pleasant surprise. The visit with Niccolo to the winegrowers was great and an additional highlight to our holiday. We look forward to seeing you again and until then we wish you well.

A memorable stay in a small palazzo that uniquely combines grandeur with informality. The apartment is spacious and full of beautiful furnishings, the breakfasts carefully curated, local advice is plentiful, and everything has the light touch of the delightful Contessa. In the very warm weather, air conditioning would have been welcome, although it is hard to see how this could be achieved without damaging the beautiful building.

It was an amazing experience. Truly out of the ordinary. Countess Carolina was a wonderful host looking after us as we had been her long seen friends. She is also a most valuable source of all sort of information on the area, the country and last but not least, the history of the place and her family. It was a wonderful stay and we still keep talking about it and tell about it to friends and colleagues.

Judit, Brussels

My wife and I were celebrating our Golden Wedding Anniversary and Carolina and her husband, Nicolo were an absolute delight, welcoming us into their wonderful home, almost as one of their family. They both made our stay so enjoyable and memorable, we couldn't have wished for anything better, on such a special occasion for my wife and I. A really big thank you from us both, you gave us such special memories, which we shall always treasure.

Richard, Ledbury, Herefordshire

We had a lovely week's stay in a charming and historical apartment with very personalized and most gracious assistance from Carolina Lantieri in helping plan our day's activities. Breakfasts were generous and scrumptious...old world charm mixed with modern day needs. Highly recommended
