Rooms are split between the historic main building, dating back to the 16th century, and the more modern conventino set in the gardens. As befitted by their surroundings, rooms in the original building are adorned with tapestries and decorated with intricate Venetian detail, while the rooms and suites in the conventino are more contemporary and colonial in style.

The hotel's restaurant, L'Ulivo, serves light, fresh meals using local fruit and vegetables, seafood and regional wines, The outdoor terrace is a great place to unwind after a day of sightseeing, and overlooks the hotel's beautiful gardens.

Bauer Palladio's spa offers a wide variety of treatments, private yoga and kinesis training. Outside there's an orchard, flowerbeds a plenty, vegetable gardens and luscious green lawns.
