Santa Lucia is a delightful inn with old-world charm, located 45 minutes by car from the Colosseum and 10 minutes on foot from the sandy beaches of Fregene. Architect Sarah Lollini envisaged it as the ideal place to forget about the daily grind, somewhere to be lulled by the slow rhythms of nature and enchanted by the colours of the earth, the plants, the sky, water and fire. The recurring theme shared by all the building’s spaces is the skilful blend of dreamlike atmospheres and supreme comfort. The distinctive style of the Admiral freestanding cast iron bathtubs transform the ritual of bathing into a truly unique experience, whether in the iconic white version or customised warm grey.
