Palazzola particularly welcomes groups who come for a week or two of peace and quiet in this beautiful setting. It's the perfect base for a parish, school or college group who come as pilgrims, to enjoy the splendours of Rome or for a relaxing week or two in the sun. Many groups come to us each year, a number for their second or third visit.
Palazzola is also the ideal location to hold a retreat or a conference with fully equipped meeting rooms that can accommodate large or small groups. Contact us for further information and special offers available at certain times of the year.
Writers, artists and those studying for exams also find Palazzola a great place to work at the quieter times of year, such as the crisp days of autumn, when there are few distractions.
You will often encounter former English College students at Palazzola who, with little prompting, recount tales of blissful summers spent here. Humour them for you will soon find yourself an unwitting member of this select fellowship of people who are enchanted by Palazzola.
Whether you come as part of a parish or school group, on pilgrimage or on holiday, with your family, a friend or on your own you can be assured of a warm welcome at Palazzola.
See our Conferences page for more information on holding your conference, seminar, training or planning meeting at Palazzola.
"When I was a student in Rome we used to call Palazzola the ‘anticamera di paradiso’, a foretaste of paradise! This was because we thought then, as I do now, it is a wonderful place. It has a rich history and has lovely grounds, and the old monastery and the chapel are always welcoming and comfortable. People always feel fortunate to have stayed at Palazzola."
Cardinal Cormac Murphy O'Connor
"In terms both of the beauty of the natural environment and the warmth of the human environment, this is an exceptional place. My visits there have been happy and fruitful, and I know that all who have shared those visits would say the same."
Rt. Rev Rowan Williams. Former Archbishop of Canterbury.
