WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE PART OF IT?
Dario recently gave up my his big time job in Los Angeles, hosting celebrities and stars while running N 10 restaurant in partnership with football legend Alessandro Del Piero, to start a new project with his partner Marie Claire and their two kids.
They are the owners of B&B San Gennaro Castello as well as its sister property La Casa nel Borgo and managers of few
vacation rentals, located in the historical village of San Gennaro while Simonetta is managing the real estate side.
They are not a part of a global hotel group with an expansion plan, they just wanted to share a little bit of the sweetness of
living in San Gennaro, and to offer travelers a refuge of simple, friendly and relaxed hospitality, and a chance to get away from the box-ticking tourists racing through the sites. San Gennaro Castello is a place to observe tourists, rather than be one,
to see them swell in and then out each day, while from the window of your room, you gaze down the medieval alleys,
catch the distant sound of an Italian song playing, smell the pasta sauce being readied for lunch. Across the way, an old lady smiles and waves as she waters her meticulously kept window box. At night, you’ll stroll home from dinner, down a cobblestone lane, passing a noisy discussion between families who have pulled wood chairs out into the street on a warm summer evening.
Stay a few nights, and they will wave as you pass. Maybe you will consider giving it all up too…
After thirty years of running restaurants and hotels around
the world, Dario and his family decided to downshift in Tuscany,
where he was born and grew up, to achieve a better lifestyle.
