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
