Our history before the Accidental Tourist:
Our main home has been in our family for 6 generations:
Michelangelo, Galileo, Rodolfo, Giovanni, Majla, Eva and Giotto.
It is a watchtower built is 1146, and later became an orphanage, then a farmhouse.
During WWII, total strangers found shelter and many lives were saved in this family villa.
As heirs of this abode, we want to honor its vocation:
to Treat Strangers as Guests,
to Turn Guests into Friends
