The Appartamento Penelope is an apartment located inside the Palazzo Rispoli, a 19th century building, once the ancient home of the noble Rispoli family. The palace overlooks Corso Sirleto, one of the main streets of Guardavalle.
Passing through a majestic portal, just right at the beginning of the Corso, there are the rooms on the ground floor which once were an oil mill and a warehouse now used as bars. A granite staircase, that leads to the Appartamento Penelope, located in the first floor, stands out in the quad. The accommodation has one double bedroom, a private toilet, one kitchen and the dining area. The prevalence of turquoise tones confers luminosity and brilliance to the apartment, where stands out an elegant and classic furniture. You can find one wrought iron bed made by the capable hands of the village artisan, antique furniture and a crystal and brass chandelier.
There is an ancient loom still functioning at the doorway, that gives the name to the apartment (connected to the famous Odyssey story).
