About Holy Deer
Supercharge your adherence to the ‘when in Rome…’ adage by staying in Holy Deer. This apartment, which is part of the exclusive San Lorenzo Lodges portfolio, is a masterpiece in Italian grand living. Situated in a renovated historical building, nothing has been forgotten at Holy Deer. When it comes to location, the views over Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi are fantastic and the doorstep opens onto Piazza Navona – one of the most beautiful Baroque piazzas in the city, and the interiors are five-star standard.
Holy Deer is unique. It captures the essence of Baroque architecture and design while exuding luxury and splendour from every room. There are frescoes by Allegrini on the ceilings, high quality furnishing, antique marble fireplaces and huge windows and balconies from which you can soak up some Roman life. Holy Deer is part of the Palazzo Pamphiji, built by Pope Innocent X in the 17th century, as a testament to his family’s power and standing. Historians will also enjoy discovering more about the forbidden love story of a pope and his sister-in-law which took place within these palazzo walls.
Enjoy living the life of a Roman aristocrat here, while spending your days experiencing the best of the city’s sights and museums. There’s plenty of opportunity for relaxing when you’ve toured to your heart’s content – whether that be in the library, study, or the whirlpool off the Pope’s bedroom.
Holy Deer is an intimate and exclusive accommodation in the Eternal City. A stay here will certainly be remembered forever.
