History of the B&B Viziottavo
Put two young friends with a passion for hospitality. Put an old building but full of charm, a pinch of “madness” and you’re done. Since 2011 there Tacci square in front of the B & B Viziottavo. We are in the historic center of Castiglion Fiorentino. After passing the town hall square, go down Via San Michele, and after a few hundred square meters is Tacci, in fact. The last tenant leaves the property in the late 90′s. Since then forgetfulness becomes the sole owner of the rooms and lofts. The silence and neglect takes the place of playful shrieks and cries of children. The turning point came only in 2009 when Alessio, a professional surveyor then little more than 28-year old, for the first time crossed the threshold of the palace 400esco. “I took just two minutes – he says – to understand that the place was perfect for a B & B”. “When it came to my shop – Federico adds now 30 years old – was no longer in the skin.” “Our intention – say in unison the two friends-businessmen – was also to give more opportunity to our country. Castiglion Fiorentino is a medieval village full of history, culture and traditions. And fortunately the chaos of the city and the hectic life are still very far from us. Two elements, these, that make our country a small chest. In short, a small town on a tourist, or rather, man. ” Create something tangible, therefore, to sustain and support the local economy. To give a boost to the country, the guardian of numerous artistic treasures. But as often happens between saying and doing is always a half of the sea. And even in this case, “the enthusiasm was – still the two friends – but the entrepreneurial adventure was more complicated than it we thought.
Lots of paperwork to fill, so many bureaucratic procedures to follow.” Despite all of two years ago, May 2011, comes the opening of which was attended by hundreds and hundreds of people. Many wanted to congratulate the two friends with a passion for the tourist. But many people, moved by a prurient curiosity, wanted to see and why not touch the eighth vice. Yes, because the B & B to decline over the seven deadly sins he himself becomes a vice, hence the name “Viziottavo.” 6 bedrooms, super modern and equipped with all comforts, each of which represents a defect: Pride, Avarice, Envy, Wrath, Sloth and Lust suite. In addition, each room is assigned a color and a different scent. Then there is the throat, seventh deadly sin, where they consume gargantuan breakfasts. All this is accompanied by the detailed research brings to light is the heraldic coat of arms of the noble family that the temperament rather on those who live for centuries made the palace. “When we thought the hotel the first thing that came to mind – explain in unison – it was a place that combined perfectly relaxing pleasure.” And so an elegant historic building, for centuries owned by an illustrious noble family in Tuscany, is transformed into an oasis of well-being. Stress, hectic life, at least for one night, are left outside the door while inside everything is built to pamper guests. Since the establishment and restoration of the architectural structure. “In addition to having recovered all that was possible – the state – even the original one, we thought of bringing modernity and super-technology. (Access to the hotel and its rooms is via MAGNETIC BADGE which is also activated after the ignition of the same, wasting energy and helping, though in our small, the ecosystem.) That in every room there the possibility of color therapy, an ancient natural therapy that uses colors to harmonize the body and mind. ” And this combination has whetted and teases the mind of many tourists, especially Italian. “Yes – and Federico Alessio say – our customers to the maximum stop 3 days, are 70% Italian. There is a couple of spouses of Bologna that every year is the Medieval Festival organized by the district formwork. The remaining 30 come from Holland, America, Germany and France. ” In just two years, therefore, the B & B Viziottavo has carved a prominent place in the landscape of receiving both local and national. “It ‘s only right to thank – say the two friends – to our families. Our fathers, Helium and Renato, who helped us a lot during the renovation work. Our mothers, Ginetta and Franca, who along with my sister – says Federico – help us in welcoming. ” For Alessio and Federico is made, therefore, a dream. But those who know the two boys is sure to have another project already in the pipeline.
