Palazzo Mannocchi was an absolute dream come true of a wedding venue! Our expectations were easily exceeded. We stayed 6 nights at the Palazzo in May 2015.
The city of Petritoli is breathtaking. Upon our arrival, Ferida looked after our every need. She whisked us down to the grocery store so we could get some things for our arriving guests, then off to the florist to discuss the flower arrangements for the wedding…to say that Ferida goes above and beyond for her guests is the understatement of the year! Jean Marie is also an exceptional host from Belgique.
We had terrible weather the entire week, rainy and cold (very atypical for the region), with the exception of the wedding day, which was a wonderful gift. Ferida and Jean Marie were ready with alternate plans should it begin to rain at any time, which it did during the reception. They were so attentive to the details, taking much pressure off of us and allowing our families and friends to just enjoy the occasion.
The Palazzo itself is unbelievable. It was overwhelming the first day we were there trying to figure out how to get from room to room, but after half a day, we were all over it. There are terraces, pools, 6 or 7 kitchens, a bathroom or two on every floor, and antiques everywhere. All of the rooms seemed to have a different personality. We had a few too many guests for the Palazzo, so Ferida and Jean Marie gave us access to an apartment in town for the overage.
Jean Marie's staff prepared our rehearsal dinner, which we opted to do a pizza night, our wedding meal, and a brunch the day after the wedding. Everything was top notch. The wedding meal was easily the best wedding food we've ever had. As Americans, we're used to wedding food being made en masse, usually some form of chicken or beef, never very good and sometimes not very filling. This food was from start to finish perfect. And, it keeps coming! They will not move onto another course until everyone is done with that course and has had enough. The chef and staff put out a phenomenal spread! The region of Le Marche's stuffed fried olives as an hors d'oeuvre is a must!
Thank you to Ferida and Jean Marie and thank you to the people of Petritoli!
We had a great time on our so called "Lustrum-trip" together with 64 friends from our study in Maastricht, Holland.
Everything was arranged perfectly: the beautiful location, the friendly people in the village of Petritoli, the property itself, the cleaning, the food/drinks and especially the perfect service of Ferida and Jean-Marie! We could contact them for anything we wanted and they always made sure it was done right away.
All in all we had a perfect holiday and we would like to recommend the Palazzo, and its service, to everyone!
We had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Palazzo Manocchi, it's a beautiful, perfectly restored medieval palace surrounded by the most incredible views of rolling hills as far as the eye can see.
The rooms are all furnished with carefully chosen antique furniture yet it has all the modern facilities you could need.
The 2 pools and hot tubs were a delight and made it hard to leave even for day trips around the town.
The owners couldn't have been more helpful and made sure that we always had everything and more than we needed.
It was a magical time for all of us and the only down side was having to leave after a fabulous week!
Palazzo Manocchi is an absolutely incredible place. The town of Petritoli is as scenic as it is charming. Ferida and Jean-Marie are fabulous hosts, and you will have everything you need, whether incredible food from the restaurant downstairs or access to Ferida's wealth of knowledge of the area. Be sure to visit her beautiful shop! If you're looking for a place for a destination wedding, a holiday or any group function, this is your place. Tip: renting cars is a suggestion as Petritoli is fairly remote and a good 15 minutes from nearby Pedaso Stazione. The palazzo comfortably slept 45. Could handle more.

We've just returned to Northern Ireland after a week-long stay at wonderful Palazzo Mannochi. Our eldest daughter married her lovely fiancé there, and for them and for all of us, it was a magical experience. This was due entirely to the expertise and attention to detail shown by our amazing hosts, Ferida & Jean-Marie, who own and run this fabulous, authentic and opulent venue. Our guests were endlessly impressed with their magnificent surroundings, but no less impressed with the care and attention to detail with which every request, large or small, was met. Ferida is an inspirational woman, with a wealth of knowledge and understanding of how best wedding preparations may be made, and how to put brides-to-be (and their mothers) at their ease. It is remarkable how the townspeople work closely with Ferida & Jean-Marie, proving services where needed, always smiling and helpful. My daughter's ceremony was held in the Town Hall Gardens, which overlooks a vista of green hills and valleys, rolling meadows and fields of fruit and olive trees. It is a truly magnificent venue. The wedding meal was held at the Palazzo Restaurant, superbly catered by Jean-Marie and his team. The food was indescribably great ! Fresh, local whole sea-bass, perfectly-cooked beef, delicious ravioli, all manner of tasty local delicacies and a mountain of feather-light profiteroles went to make up the wedding meal, though not in that order. The food was expertly served and was very plentiful. I have never had a more expertly cooked. , flavoursome dinner and trust me, I like my food! I am struggling here to find more superlatives to describe the excellence of my experience at Palazzo Mannochi. I felt entirely 'at home', yet completely enchanted by my surroundings. Petritoli is a magical place. I hope it always remains that way. The Palazzo is the jewel in its crown, and Ferida and Jean-Marie are its truly amazing guardians. Long may you continue to inspire guests with your dedication and grace. The Irish, Persian, American and European guests could not have felt more welcome and well accommodated. I have to mention Ferida's beautiful shop, where I bought gorgeous Murano glass jewellery for my outfit, ably assisted in my choice by the elegant Ferida. The shop is an added treat. All the women guests loved it, and showed off their purchases over coffee at the Cafe Tre Archi. I could go on, but I think you feel my enthusiasm :) Last mention to Ivo, of Casa Cormar, great tour guide and a great guy
The region lies on the eastern side of central Italy, between the Adriatic Sea and the high Apennine mountains and much of it remains unspoilt by the ravages of mass tourism.
Many visitors who come to Le Marche are looking for a taste of the 'real' Italy, unsullied by mass tourism, yet welcoming to foreigners - if that's what you want, you won't be disappointed.
From Petritoli you'll find some of the most impressive mountain scenery to the south of the region amidst the Monti Sibillini, whose peaks are often covered with snow until the late spring.
Wine alone could provide an excellent motive for touring in the Marche and wine making in the area has been having its own little renaissance over the last ten years or so, with a move away from quantity to quality.
