Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

I had an incredible 5 nights here with a group of 30 friends from around the world. The atmosphere is fantastic--the owners are antique collectors and have outfitted the rooms superbly--and basically told us to make the place our home--which we happily did. The amenities are simple but perfectly functional. This is 'old-school' in the best sense of the word--the place just oozes character.

Palazzo Mannocchi is well-suited for a bonding communal experience. We had nightly cocktails around the gorgeous rooftop pool terrace and met for breakfast daily at the coffee bar across the street (which happens to have great gelato!).

Petritoli is a small and charming town that has few tourists, and none of us wanted to leave. There are also numerous other lovely towns in the area, as well as beaches about 30 minutes away. This is a part of Italy that is thankfully not overrun by tourists, so you can have a very 'authentic' local experience. The area is as pretty as Tuscany, at a fraction of the cost.

Thanks to Ferida for making our stay there the experience of a lifetime--every single one of us loved it! Already dreaming of coming back!

A Dream come true and then some

  • 5 of 5

Palazzo Mannocchi was an absolute dream come true of a wedding venue! Our expectations were easily exceeded. We stayed 6 nights at the Palazzo in May 2015.

The city of Petritoli is breathtaking. Upon our arrival, Ferida looked after our every need. She whisked us down to the grocery store so we could get some things for our arriving guests, then off to the florist to discuss the flower arrangements for the wedding…to say that Ferida goes above and beyond for her guests is the understatement of the year! Jean Marie is also an exceptional host from Belgique.

We had terrible weather the entire week, rainy and cold (very atypical for the region), with the exception of the wedding day, which was a wonderful gift. Ferida and Jean Marie were ready with alternate plans should it begin to rain at any time, which it did during the reception. They were so attentive to the details, taking much pressure off of us and allowing our families and friends to just enjoy the occasion.

The Palazzo itself is unbelievable. It was overwhelming the first day we were there trying to figure out how to get from room to room, but after half a day, we were all over it. There are terraces, pools, 6 or 7 kitchens, a bathroom or two on every floor, and antiques everywhere. All of the rooms seemed to have a different personality. We had a few too many guests for the Palazzo, so Ferida and Jean Marie gave us access to an apartment in town for the overage.

Jean Marie's staff prepared our rehearsal dinner, which we opted to do a pizza night, our wedding meal, and a brunch the day after the wedding. Everything was top notch. The wedding meal was easily the best wedding food we've ever had. As Americans, we're used to wedding food being made en masse, usually some form of chicken or beef, never very good and sometimes not very filling. This food was from start to finish perfect. And, it keeps coming! They will not move onto another course until everyone is done with that course and has had enough. The chef and staff put out a phenomenal spread! The region of Le Marche's stuffed fried olives as an hors d'oeuvre is a must!

Thank you to Ferida and Jean Marie and thank you to the people of Petritoli!

Owner's Response: To have the honour to host the most important day of peoples lives we take very seriously. With the trust and responsibility that we are given by our guests who sometimes travel across continents bringing their families and friends to little Petritoli we do our outmost best to make the event succesful and most of all to leave lasting memories. We know that to organize an event such as a wedding outside your country and move a lot of people to one destination is not an easy matter. For this reason it is importantf for us to always inform couples and their guests to provide assistance and most of all make the organization simple and stress free. So that upon arrival everyone can enjoy and have fun. Petritoli is a small town and any event is seen as important so every couple that decide to be wedded here become inevitably the VIPs . The towns people look forward to the summer knowing that new friendships will be made and that the town will be filled with laughter music with people from all over the world. So it is us to thank couples and to remind them that nothing makes us more happy to see them again . After all they are the locals now.

Review "Lustrumreis Annorlunda" at Petritoli

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on our so called "Lustrum-trip" together with 64 friends from our study in Maastricht, Holland.

Everything was arranged perfectly: the beautiful location, the friendly people in the village of Petritoli, the property itself, the cleaning, the food/drinks and especially the perfect service of Ferida and Jean-Marie! We could contact them for anything we wanted and they always made sure it was done right away.

All in all we had a perfect holiday and we would like to recommend the Palazzo, and its service, to everyone!

Owner's Response: Every event is important to us whether reunions , celebrations or vacations .We do our best to make the week pleasant and stress free. No matter how big the group can be each guest is treated with regard and we do our best to come forward to everyone's needs.The town is welcoming and here you will find no bi- lingual menus or chain stores , guests are immersed in authentic Italy with all the warmth and hospitality that makes this place special. The palace is scenic and comfortable combining the lustrous old with the functional modern. The restaurant Palazzo Mannocchi serves traditional food with home made pasta ,fresh fish and products from the surrounding valleys. Local wines abound and we pick the best ones . The town is active and lively with shops , supermarkets , bars and all the services at walking distance . Our mission is to offer a professional service in a free and easy manner so that the time spent in Petritoli leaves happy memories and becomes a place to return again , not as clients but as friends .

Simply beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Palazzo Manocchi, it's a beautiful, perfectly restored medieval palace surrounded by the most incredible views of rolling hills as far as the eye can see.

The rooms are all furnished with carefully chosen antique furniture yet it has all the modern facilities you could need.

The 2 pools and hot tubs were a delight and made it hard to leave even for day trips around the town.

The owners couldn't have been more helpful and made sure that we always had everything and more than we needed.

It was a magical time for all of us and the only down side was having to leave after a fabulous week!

Amazing place with incredible people

  • 5 of 5

Palazzo Manocchi is an absolutely incredible place. The town of Petritoli is as scenic as it is charming. Ferida and Jean-Marie are fabulous hosts, and you will have everything you need, whether incredible food from the restaurant downstairs or access to Ferida's wealth of knowledge of the area. Be sure to visit her beautiful shop! If you're looking for a place for a destination wedding, a holiday or any group function, this is your place. Tip: renting cars is a suggestion as Petritoli is fairly remote and a good 15 minutes from nearby Pedaso Stazione. The palazzo comfortably slept 45. Could handle more.

The region lies on the eastern side of central Italy, between the Adriatic Sea and the high Apennine mountains and much of it remains unspoilt by the ravages of mass tourism.

Many visitors who come to Le Marche are looking for a taste of the 'real' Italy, unsullied by mass tourism, yet welcoming to foreigners - if that's what you want, you won't be disappointed.

From Petritoli you'll find some of the most impressive mountain scenery to the south of the region amidst the Monti Sibillini, whose peaks are often covered with snow until the late spring.

Wine alone could provide an excellent motive for touring in the Marche and wine making in the area has been having its own little renaissance over the last ten years or so, with a move away from quantity to quality.
