This home has a century-long history of opening to strangers in hardship. It was an orphanage in the 16th century.
It offered shelter to men and women from different nationalities, during WWII.
Since 1998, the Accidental Tourist have hosted over 30,000 guests, for a cooking class or to spend the night.
We have honored this tradition by creating a room that is available to stranded travelers. It can sleep a family of 4. Help us keep it open!

I hope this note finds you well. As I look through old photos & reflect on this year, I realize that our day with you may have been our best. It was beyond doubt the most meaningful to our daughter, Helen, about to leave for university. In a summer of tumult, she was so calm in your kitchen. So present, so taken by the kindness. She loved working with her hands. I think something shifted in her brain, or maybe her heart. When we left, she said to me on the walk home, “Steve is the happiest person I’ve ever met.” She realized: he had designed his life. Lived as he wanted to live: fully, with richness, beauty, and kindness. She saw a carpet of options unrolling before her. Her life would no longer be a box.
Finally, thank you for all you do to make this world a more beautiful place. If you ever feel it goes unnoticed, it does not. Your fingerprints are all over my child.
