Travel Operators organising large coach tours book hundreds of rooms in big, international style hotels in city centers, where travellers can find high class but standardised service. But we are different!
Our accommodations, whether a rustic rural estate or city center hotel, are carefully selected to always reflect the character and charm of the area we are visiting. Some properties are situated in a stunning setting or have interesting historical and architectural heritage; others may be chosen for their excellent food or their central location, ambiance, service and value.
You may also enjoy a true Italian experience in small, intimate properties full of local character: charming "boutique" hotels and luxury "agriturismi" (country houses), each of them different and yet typical.
If you are looking for an extraordinary experience, why not ask for accomodations in historical palaces? You will taste the best Italian hospitaly in buildings of striking architectural and scenic beauty. Each house offers a unique experience and the warmest welcome, hosting those in search of the traces of history and art that past centuries have left imprinted on these places. Castles, patrician palaces, villas around Italy will strike you with their beauty and the level of service, welcoming you in and old-style, familiar atmosphere.
OFF THE BEATEN TRACK, THAT’S WHERE ITALIANS LIKE TO EAT
Being a small team means you can access dining premises which are not viable for most tours. That’s where most Italians eat, that’s where you can taste the true Italian cuisine, the regional specialties, the local wine. Trattorie, osterie, pasticcerie, espresso bar, the choice is infinite. And while travelling or visiting, why not stop for a typical piadina or focaccia, or even take a picnic with local “prosciutto e formaggio” on the shores of a lake or in a city park.
SMALLER STRUCTURES MEANS LESS IMPACT
As we admire the beauty of Italy, we also need to preserve it. And choices in tourism really make the difference.
We aim at promoting low impact tourism, and we select and utilize hotels with an environmental commitment in terms of water conservation and energy consumption efficiency.
