ROCCO FORTE HOTELS

From London to Rome, from Sicily to St. Petersburg, each house is as unique as its location and inspired by the spirit of its surroundings. The common distinguishing feature is the distinctive Anglo-Italian style, sophistication and warmth of the Forte family.

Finding the perfect harmony between comfort, character and creativity is the greatest challenge for any interior designer. Olga Polizzi, Deputy Chairman and Director of Design at Rocco Forte Hotels, always has her finger on the pulse of current design trends, but without losing sight of the history and culture of the hotel locations.
