This is the ownership experience at Palazzo Ricci.
Pinch Yourself Now. You Are Home.
In its glory, Palazzo Ricci was considered the gem of the town of Casoli. Once renovation is complete, the exterior design will recapture the original grandeur of this 18th century palace along with Italy’s classic old-world charm.
The building will be completely renovated to meet the highest standards of modern architecture, energy efficiency, and engineering, while maintaining a commitment to the preservation of its original Italian design and detail. Fourteen exclusive residences that rival accommodations at the world’s finest resorts will be available and shared among nine owners per residence, allowing for frequent and flexible lodging throughout the year.
Viewing the historic grandeur of Palazzo Ricci, one may marvel at the sumptuous wonders waiting to welcome you inside its walls. A spectacular atrium with a breathtaking view over the Italian garden and the Majella Mountains, glass elevator, concierge desk, state- of-the-art fitness center, complete with a couples massage room, are among the common areas. A cellar museum in which antique treasures of the old Palazzo will be exposed to create an even higher connection between the past and the present of the Palazzo.
One, two, and three-bedroom floor plans are housed within the Palace, in addition to an opulent penthouse and beautiful, adjacent cottage with a private and romantic parlor.
Every residence delivers an exceptional standard of living with state-of-the-art appliances, luxurious linens, furniture, décor, and art that inspire sensations of perfection and comfort. Unique luxuries within each residence also include private balconies, dramatic mountain and garden views, stately living and dining parlors, arched and nouveau stained-glass windows, along with a shared extension of world-class amenities and services supplied by a 24-hour on-call staff.
Along with the distinct luxury inside and among of each private residence, owners will also experience the exquisite beauty of a spacious Italian-landscaped garden. It’s here where vibrant flowers and ornamental plants surround old-world water features, romantic pergolas and secluded sitting areas. And—just when you think it couldn’t get any better—comfy lounge chairs are at the ready for enjoyment of the stunning swimming pool and breathtaking views of the Italian Apennine and Majella mountains.
Known for its stunning craggy mountains, beautifully rugged coastlines, expansive national parks, and plenty of medieval hill- top towns scattered in between, it’s clear that the Abruzzo region has not been overly influenced by today’s busy, modern way of life. It clearly retains the classic “old Italy” feeling.
Abruzzo is home to the famous Trabocchi Coast where fishermen still cast their nets from wooden stilt-like structures called trabocchi. These mechanized “fishing machines” allow them to fish without using a boat. It’s also home to a staggering number of castles—over 700 of them still stand in some form today.
Casoli sits high on a hill with panoramic views of the Apennine Mountains, the Adriatic Sea and the Italian countryside. Its cobblestone streets and 9th-century castle evoke scenes right out of the movies. The cafes, restaurants, street markets, shops, and the town’s warm welcome are the best and most genuine experiences Italy has to offer.
To reach Casoli, visitors can fly in to either Rome or Naples international airports, followed by a spectacularly scenic two-hour drive east to Casoli. The Abruzzo region also has its own smaller international airport in Pescara, just 45 min from Casoli. In late 2019 it received Italian government clearance for an extension of the runways, which will mean the addition of many more international flights into Abruzzo and Casoli (estimated in 2022).
