Palazzo Passerini residenza suite


Sleeping up to 6 people (though best suited for 2 couples or a family of 4), Palazzo Passerini is the ideal private place to stay in Cortona, with its own entrance. COVID-clean hygiene procedures and pandemic protocols are in place ensuring guests can have confidence and trust in these measures during their stay. In addition to the 3 bedrooms, Palazzo Passerini features a fully-fitted handmade kitchen and a beautiful sitting room.

Palazzo Passerini is high-tech with fibre optic cable internet with speeds up to 100Mb and a satellite WiFi back-up system – 2 systems on separate networks so you should never be without internet! Not only that but we have a mobile signal booster that really helps mobile calls. Are you a music lover? We have a SONOS sound system that you can connect to and play music from your own device and direct to the living room, kitchen or Loggia Suite or all three!


Loggia Suite

The Loggia suite upstairs, which used to have an open loggia, has a wall of painted shuttered windows which open onto the streets and rooftops of Cortona, and the Tuscan hillside beyond the city walls. Featuring a super king-size four poster bed this master suite is huge with a working fireplace in the corner. Cosy up by the stone fireplace with an aperitivo from the honesty bar or watch the sunset over the Tuscan hills. The bespoke bathroom has a bath, walk-in shower and double marble-topped basin with the cabinetry painted in Farrow and Ball. Hidden away from view, in a bespoke cabinet is a large TV with SKY (including SKY Sports).


If you’re travelling with friends or are a family of 4 then there is a mansarded room off the Loggia Suite upstairs, with 2 additional beds (that can be made up as a double), ideal for 2 children or 2 friends rather than a couple. This room shares a bathroom with the Loggia Suite and is only accessed through the Loggia Suite. Both rooms on this floor have air-conditioning. All our bed linens are woven locally by the world famous Busatti factory (1842).

Room size: 7.72 x 6.07 m (25 x 20 ft)

Study Room: 4.74 x 3.63 m (15 x 12ft)

Extra Bedroom: 4.21 x 4.74 m (14 x 15 ft)

Bathroom: 2.3 x 4.68 m (7 x 15 ft)


Residenza Suite

The first en-suite bedroom is on the ground floor next to the sitting room. The Residenza Suite features a super king-size bed and large en-suite bathroom with a spacious tiled double walk-in shower and double marble-topped basins. The roll-top bath is an original enamel bath which has been refurbished and which sits next to the window by the Farrow and Ball radiator.

The suite is air-conditioned for those warmer nights in the summer. All of our bed linens are woven locally by the world famous Busatti factory (1842), located in Anghieri just 45 minutes drive from Cortona and well worth a visit.

Room size: 4.93 x 3.73 m (16 ft x 12ft)

Bathroom & Dressing Area: 4.94 x 4.20 m (16ft x 14ft)


Il Salone

The Salon is where everyone meets both at the beginning and the end of the day to tell their stories. This room is of medieval proportions and history, with its huge fireplace (fully functional) and splendid shuttered windows overlooking Via Roma. The round stone dining table was specially commissioned for Palazzo Passerini and can comfortably seat 6 people. The large bespoke sofas and chairs are from local furniture maker Tosconova, covered with locally made fabrics from the famous Busatti factory. Enjoy a glass of wine from our fully stocked bar with built-in drinks chiller, before heading out for authentic Tuscan dinners or enjoy cooking ‘a casa’ with local and seasonal ingredients.
