I am an Italian hotelier, Venetian daughter of a family of hoteliers and restaurateurs.
I grew up amid the great excitement of hotel guests arriving from all over the world and other guests who would stop by for dinner. I remember the business dinners of my father: he passionately cooked for his guests and then we would all eat in our dining room which was always decorated with many paintings… it was also like a restaurant in our house !
I remember the smell and taste of my grandmother’s homemade cakes and the pleasure of helping my mother laying the table meticulously, with her beautiful embroidered tablecloths, taking care of every detail. My parents passed on to me the passion for this job, which I totally embraced.
I love to spoil people, speak foreign languages and learn about other cultural realities: my job has taken me all over the world.
A cosy spot, an authentic atmosphere, a friendly smile, someone who spoils me with a good breakfast or dinner and maybe gives me tips for a good local restaurant, a good glass of wine, a romantic stroll…that is what I seek and that is what I offer you.
Here I am in Locarno where I have been living for a while. Having found a special place I decided to open the Villa Art’é Bed & Breakfast, where I can devote myself to the art of hosting.
