Why Marco chose Sondrio

An ancient house of a noble family of Valtellina, lovingly restored by the descendants, where you can feel the history and where the time of your stay slows, conquered by the charm of the Renaissance rooms. Along with rare periods inhabited by the owners your presence renews Palazzo Guicciardi life that will reward you with its peace and its charm. The restorations continue, even with your contribution.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

A Renaissance mansion where you can feel the history and personality of the former owners, Captain John of the '600 or Senator Henry, Risorgimento patriot. Large rooms to gather and listen to the silence or to share with friends, such as the large fully equipped kitchen. And outdoor spaces: the court of the press or the secret garden with a barbecue. The complex Palazzo Guicciardi is ideal for two or three families or a group of up to 9/10 friends.

An extraordinary and unique experience

  • 5 of 5

Ponte in Valtellina is a small, rustic village in a beautiful mountainous setting. It's people are warm, helpful and welcoming. In among the village's cobblestoned narrow streets is the Palazzo Guicciardi, the ancient family home of the family by the same name. Its walls are a metre or more thick, timber floors are polished and worn by the traffic of people over hundreds of years, and it is filled with antique furniture, family portraits of ancestors and all sorts of interesting items, some of which were a mystery to us.

Our host, Marco, made us feel very welcome and provided us with a tour of the Palazzo, explaining as he went. He also provided us with a welcome "pack" of local produce including breads, butter, milk, salami, yoghurts, jams and juice. It was an unexpected treat.

Also provided was information about the house, the village, the local facilities and services, recommendations for places to eat and to visit. This was very useful.

We had a very peaceful, relaxing and wonderful stay and highly recommend it to those who are looking for something unique.

FABULOUS!

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely stunning. You feel you have taken a step back in time, yet you have all of the modern amenities. The owner was most gracious by giving us a tour of the expansive property with historical explanations, providing local products and fruit and making dinner reservations at a wonderful restaurant next door. We highly recommend this property.

Big climbs, big buildings

  • 5 of 5

"Our group, consisting of 8 cyclists, was lusciously accommodated in this historic building and its annex. The maze-like main house is of stunning beauty, which surpassed our expectations based on the photos we saw beforehand. Also, the owner was very kind (and patient) to show us around town on arrival day. Highly recommended!"

  • 5 of 5

"We strongly recommend to stay in this wonderful palazzo. It''s like stepping back into time with all the comfort of today. The house is clearly restored with great care and love and one gets a lesson in history just by being there.

The welcome is warm and a welcome package with regional products is provided by the owners. They know the area well and provide a lot of interesting information for your stay (things to do and to see, close by and also further away and also the really interesting history of the palazzo). We for example did the train ride through the alps which the owner highly recommended and he was right! A real must!

You don''t have to go this far to have a good time though. Just walking in the village and the surrounding mountains is a charm. Also Sondrio is not that far away and a nice city to visit.

Next to all the lovely things to visit we loved the good Valtellina food, wine and juice.

Again we would like to thank the owners for their good care and giving us the opportunity to stay in this amazing palazzo."

  • 5 of 5

"Palazzo Guicciardi is a unique fantasy stimulating old haven in a very tranquil surrounding. It takes some time not to get lost in the 240 m2 living area with large shielded outdoor areas. Everything was excellently provided by the owner Marco - the beautiful spacey kitchen was very perfectly equipped. The cobble stone street Via Chiuro with next to no traffic was very beautiful with fruit orchards leading down to Chiuro. The surroundings offered all the services you needed. The next door restaurant was very good. Palazzo Giuccardo constituted the perfect hub for visiting the different parts of the beuatiful Valtellina area."

  • 5 of 5

the accommodation was as described and as in photos. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we could need. Everthing impeccable and immaculate. Arrangements went according to plan. The owner went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and he provided a wonderful "welcome" pack and helpful information about the village.
