Luxury Living in the Heart of Milan: Welcome to Rocco Forte House

Rocco Forte Hotels

Famously known for its exceptional fashion scene, the legacy of Leonardo Da Vinci,  fine cuisine and vibrant culture, Milan is an extraordinary city. The home to numerous renowned art-works such as Da Vinci’s Last Supper, Botticelli’s Madonna of the Book, but also to fashion legends such as Versace, Prada, and Dolce & Gabbana.

Now, it is home to our latest opening, Rocco Forte House, an exclusive collection of 11 impeccably appointed apartments in a charming 19th-century palazzo. In the heart of Milan’s most fashionable neighbourhood, Quadrilato della Moda, this meticulously restored building is a haven of style.

Step inside and discover a world of contemporary Italian luxury, where original features such as stucco mouldings, marble floors and stunning ceiling frescos have been lovingly maintained to honour the building’s history.

Designed by Olga Polizzi, Rocco Forte Hotels' Director of Design, in collaboration with Paolo Moschino Ltd., the interiors seamlessly blend contemporary style with classic Milanese touches. Unwind in the intimacy of a private home where each apartment offers a fully-equipped kitchen, dining room, sitting room, and one or two bedrooms. Guests can enjoy views over the glorious inner courtyard – a greenery-filled tranquil space for guests – or onto the bustling Via della Spiga and Via Manzoni below. 

Living in a Milanese palazzo creates an instant connection to the city's rich history as the interiors weave a captivating narrative through an eclectic collection of artefacts and furnishings. Opulent fabrics, curated art, and a dynamic play of vibrant colours create a sense of discovery, where each corner reveals a hidden treasure. 

Exploring elsewhere in Rocco Forte House, a spacious and comfortable lounge and writing room provide an enticing space for guests to relax  in an informal setting. Ascend to the rooftop terrace, opening in 2025, for breathtaking cityscape views, the perfect spot for unwinding on sun-kissed days or balmy nights.

For extra homely touches, our House Concierge is on hand for all guest needs, from grocery shopping, to crafting bespoke itineraries and securing coveted reservations.  Guests can also enhance their stays with a personal butler, private chef, or event planning service.

Located on the corner of Via de la Spiga and Via Manzoni, Rocco Forte House’s prestigious address embodies the essence of Milan's reputation as a fashion capital. Designer boutiques, such as Prada, Paul Smith, and Moschino, line these historic streets, as well as captivating artisanal shops selling one-of-a-kind pieces by local craftsmen.  

Luxury shopping mingles with history in this vibrant neighbourhood with house-museums such as the Poldi Pezzoli and Bagatti Valsecchi offering a glimpse into the lives of Milan's elite  in days gone by. A short walk away, the iconic Teatro alla Scala beckons. This legendary opera house, famed for premiering groundbreaking Italian works, continues to be the pinnacle of opera and ballet. The nearby Gothic Duomo Cathedral, a majestic presence for over 600 years, is a quintessential Milanese landmark, complete with breathtaking panoramic views from a guided rooftop tour. 

Rocco Forte House in Milan opens in July, book your stay and be among the first to explore our beautiful private palazzo, steps away from the city's cultural and sartorial treasures. The Carlton Milan, our stunning hotel just moments from Rocco Forte House, is due to open in 2025.
