La Posta Vecchia, a former Roman museum

The hotel Posta Vecchia has resumed its original vocation: lodging. In the mid 17th century, the Odescalchi family built this as a guest house for their neighbouring château to accommodate friends in suites. Roberto Scio has returned a noble aura to this property that has since been a member of the consortium Relais & Châteaux. The current owner bought the long-abandoned villa in 1990 from its famous owner, Jean-Paul Getty. The celebrated Texan industrialist discovered and bought the building in the 60s. It took four years to renovated the building and furnish it in a princely manner. Antiquities from the world around collected by the man who was considered one of the richest in the world are now one of the hotel’s major attractions. The nineteen rooms and suites and the common areas thus benefit from a unique decor. Another legacy of J.P Getty is a museum consecrated to the ruins of two villas from antiquity that were brought to light during the renovation works, and were accessible only to the hotel’s clients. From April to October, the Hotel Posta Vecchia plays host to wealthy individual leisure clientele. This hotel fully benefits from its position located on the Tyrrhenian and its vicinity to Rome and its airport – just a half hour drive and even less by helicopter. Its intimate feel is also appreciated for meetings and incentives for small groups.
